    For my job, I need to be able to prove my location. My company will allow me to do this using my phone if I can come up with a way. Is there an app available that will show my gps location and then maybe I can take a picture of the screen using the front facing camera and a mirror? Would this even work? Could anyone offer some ideas or suggestions that might be easier/better?

    Thanks in advance for any help,
    yeto

    You can send your location in a text message. When writing a message just tap attach and my location.

    the idea of using a mirror to take a screenshot is pretty funny

    None at all. On most Windows phones, just press the power button at the same time as the Windows key/icon.

    Badranath17 has it right though; it's much easier to just click "add location" (unless you're hoping to build a catalogue of mock locations to send in to work).

    Just hold the sleep/wake button and the windows button at the same time. Then the screen shot will be saves to your albums under screen shot

    Apps like echoecho will allow others to track your location in real-time, too.

    You could use Google Latitude, I think there are a few third-party apps in the store which allow you to use the service:

    Gmaps pro has latitude but GPS Calculator lets you do raw GPS calculations as well. With GPS calc you can get the raw lat and long and take a screenshot.
