This is not possible. Blizzard did not implement a way to track your position in an instance.

Short answer: not possible (as per Blizzard's wishes)

Long answer: might be possible with a complex solution involving minimap pings and/or something called gpslib. I don't have time or inclination to pursue it though, since I think it's pretty clear the functionality has been disabled for a reason.

The question is if your raid/party would want to deal with the constant pinging!
