Smartphone App available similar to Spot?

Does anyone know of an Android app that would operate similar to a Spot tracking device?

I would like to simply hit a button on my phone to quickly send a txt message to my wife giving her my location and also letting her know I haven't crashed and fine.

An email notice would be ok, but a txt would be best.

Most apps. I've seen are based on tracking a cheating spouse or tracking sexual offenders in the area....

Any ideas or suggestions?

Foursquare is close to what you want, I'd also check out Google Latitude and Yahoo Fire Eagle.

ok, I think I inadvertantly began posting on this thread you directed me too. Thanks for the link. That was basically the same question I had.

I have since set up Google Latitude. Seems to work.
