I'm wanting a way to keep family and friends informed of my whereabouts for a big trip. I was planning on just using "Find Friends" on the iPhone but I've had sketchy results with that in the past.

I downloaded an App or two but they seem to eat up battery power like crazy which isn't helpful!

Any clues?

Gave my SPOT away a year or so ago. Couldn't really justify the annual subscription cost anymore.

I use an app called "Life360" for letting my family know where I am, and for me to see where my kids are. Of course, you have to have cell service for it to work well, but it works pretty darn well most of the time.
