How To: Email Google Map Location to Friends
You’ve probably done this before. Telling your friend where you are so he or she can meet up with you.
But you don’t know exactly where you are. Heck you are not even sure which city your other friends took you for the night out. Save some time sharing your location on the phone. Just send them a email that has your location packed into a ready-to-use iPhone Google Map link.
To do that, you need to get the free Here I Am app. Here I am app is location finder that emails your location. It is very simple to use. In fact, it only has one button for you to tap.
When you open the app, wait for a few moments for GPS to detect you with the most precision. Then, by just tapping the Send by Email button, you will be redirected to your default email app with all the email and location information filled out. All you have to do is enter the recipient name and you are good to go.
Your mail recipients will be able to access the Google Map link on their iPhone. When they open the link, it will take them directly to Google Maps with a pin marking your current location.
If they wish, they can start working on a direction to your location right on the Google Maps app.
Yep, it is that simple. If you would rather send your location information via SMS, after the email app opened, just copy and paste the message, including the url, to your SMS text messaging platform.
iPhone’s GPS functionality has opened the door to a new age of location awareness. Being able to send your location to your friends with a tap on the screen should be one of the first trick we learn on our GPS enabled iPhone.
