    Alright all, I'm trying to use auto notifications as well as auto web (didn't know which thread to post in as both plugins are used) to send my phone a text to find it. Sending the phone the text will turn on data, turn on all location services and GPS, take front and back pics, upload them to Google drive, and send the GPS latitude, longitude, and maps location. I followed this tutorial but am having some issues.



    The picture-taking, uploads, data turn-on, location turn-on, and GPS turn-on works great, but the phone just sends back the bad link that I entered from the video. Also, I'm not sure if the variable he shows is the precise coordinates that I want. His variable may be the location based off network- which is not nearly accurate enough to find a phone laying in a field or something like that. Im a farmer, so being able to find it in a field is a must.

    I have added to this profile and task, but I'm not having problems with those portions. Can someone please chime in on this? Here's what I have so far.

    Sorry, just to confirm, what part isn't working like you want it to exactly? Is it that the link isn't working? does the link contain %LOC instead of the actual location?

    This actually does work now. It wasn't sending me the coordinates because adaway was blocking maps from working. All is good now.

    However, I would like to know if there is a more precise way than what I have laid out here to get the coordinates.

    Maybe you can try to use AutoLocation Location monitoring. Have you ever tried that?
