I am thinking about taking a long-distance rideshare offered by a stranger on Craigslist. For safety, I would like my friends to track my location, until I reach the destination and tell them that I safely arrive.
Is it possible to use my Android phone to
- share my location with others during my travel, and
- then stop sharing my location after I arrive?
If yes, does it depend on the signal strength of my mobile carrier along the way? Or does it only rely on the GPS, which isn't affected by mobile signal strength? My mobile carrier uses Sprint network, which usually has worse signal strength than other networks in remote areas.
