I see you device is working just fine. So the easiest way for her or anyone to monitor your whereabouts is by creating a trip and sending her the link to it. It appears you have a number of trips already, so here's a help page about how to find a trip's links:
Thanks Jason. Just help me understand this. I usually create a trip once the trip is completed and I'm back home. Does your reply mean I can create the trip as I start out and then it updates automatically as I progress?
Absolutely! The main reason why trips exist is to create them before you head out and share them with your family and friends. Trips are the primary mechanism for how users share their travels with others - real time.
Of course, there's nothing wrong with creating them after the fact either.
