Sending your location using Google Maps

How to share you location on Google Maps in case you need help (requires an internet connection):
1. Set Google Maps to Google Earth
2. Click on the 3 vertical dots icon in the upper R/H corner
3. Choose "my location"
4. Choose "share"
5. Choose how you'd like to send the location message

It's a good idea when you go out solo or even with others to have someone at home or a friend somewhere who is aware that you 'might' use this feature if there is a problem. In other words, if you're going to use FaceBook Messenger as the potential way to send a help message, make sure your family or friend is aware of this and has it turned on.
