  • Thanxs Randy I will make the necessary tweeking it the hope of resolving this issue. Would weak phone signal strength (2 Bars) be contributor? Mike

      Possibly, but not likely. Phones use GPS, cell towers and WiFi along with logic to make a determination as to location. Any weak link can affect stability and accuracy. GPS is priority, and if it doesn't see enough birds to believe it is accurate, it will leverage the other methods. Obviously, relying on cell towers and IP address ase less than desirable for accuracy.

I think part of the issue is related to Geofency app I noticed that both my home and inner Perimeter had the same "Monitoring Radius" 100 under the settings, both were set for 100 meter or ~328 feet. I've updated to move my inner Perimeter to 200 meters in the hope that might help, we'll see. Mike
        Welcome. It's all a matter of tuning based on the device capability and radio strength. This is another key item as to why some apps work well with some phones and not with others as the actual GPS radios are not equal. I have found this even with the same hardware vendor of the same phone model.

            • OK, after some checking, I think I had the wrong POST code. Changed from 202 to 200 and I get a message "Backitude Success!" I have the correct REF ID for the root of the user I created but none of the fields gets populated.

              Do I need to get a new Google API or can I copy the ones I have from PH1?

              • I can answer the second question. If you have a valid paid API key, it will work in either version.

                • Paid? I've never doled out a dollar for an API key. I was given one by Google, don't remember how long ago and it works in PH1, so I copied it to PH2.

                    Google ended all free APIs quite a while ago. That is one of the things that drove Paul to get away from Google in PHL2. Unless you setup a billing account, your free API key is probably not working. With a billing account you can still get a “free” API, but if you exceed the limits they charge you. It is all a little confusing:

                    • Understood, now I'm confused as to why it works with one phone and not with the other. Regardless, I got a new key and I'll see which rock I stumble over next. Thanks for the help Randy!

                      • I have setup an iCloud account. I have the 3 devices. The polling interval device is set to 3 minutes. It never actually polls the iCloud account. I need to poll manually with the poll button on the account status device.

                        Do I need to setup a recurring event in order to get polling to automatically work?

                        Thanks,

                        Jim

                          No, it polls automatically at the interval set into the iCloud interval device. Are you sure the time stamp on the Account Status Device is not updating?

                            • So using Backitude I need to use the latitude and longitude values to make my own geofences in events, is that correct? Until now I had been using the postal code string as a rough location but in my interest to put PHL2 to good use, it seems lat/lon seems the way to go.

                                Yes. With global known locations it is quite easy. I just found all of our usual stops on Google maps and used the coordinates to set a known location.
