Send e-mail notifications via Find My Friends app in iOS 6 iOS devices
It is now possible to have Find My Friends app send notifications to e-mail addresses.

I like the Find My Friends app, which allows you to see where your friends are located (if they allow you to). With the latest version, in iOS 6, you now have the option to be notified when a friend leaves or arrives at a location.

But you can also set up notifications for yourself, to notify others where you are currently, as well as when you leave or arrive at a location. Additionally, you can send an e-mail automatically when you arrive or leave a location, or send an e-mail showing someone where you are currently

To do this, open Find My Friends, tap Me, then Notify. You can now tap either Immediately, to send an e-mail right away, or At a Location, to send an e-mail when you get to that location. Tap on the To field to enter an e-mail address. If you choose an Apple ID for a friend who has the Find My Friends app, they'll get a notification on their iOS device. But if you enter a different e-mail address - such as one for someone who doesn't have the app, or an iPhone - an e-mail message will be sent. This is nicely formatted, and contains a small map (using Google maps) showing your location.

So if you need to tell someone where you are, and they don't have an iOS device or the Find My Friends app, this e-mail can be a big help.

If your location is constantly being monitored, won't both your data usage and battery life be negatively affected? If so, any guess as to how much?

It's also possible to save the notification, so it repeats each time you arrive/leave the location.
