    Yes, that’s what fixed it.

    Any ideas?

    Hmm, I have two android phones and both were fine until this morning. One phone has backitude, the other egizone. I made no changes, but neither show any history for this morning's commute. The phones appear to be doing their job. Thoughts?

    For various reasons, the Nearest Location (n.nnn) device status string is created internally and doesn't use HS device value + Status / Graphic pairs. If folks prefer, I can change it so that everything uses 2 decimal places.

    Gaurave, question I was able to successfully get your example working, but I wondering how your utilizing your example? The Pushover is going to your phone so if your not home who is verbally triggering your Google home? I would have thought that it would be better to send the pushover to a tablet or some other device within the home when someone in the home triggers Google home to enquire your where abouts? Am I missing something? Don't get me wrong I really like your example (don't stop sharing) so you'll have to indulge my simpleton questions as they help get my head around new concepts. Mike

    Paul, two questions:
    1) Whilst Polling of my iCloud account I've noticed that when I select the Poll button that not all PHL devices update, in fact only one device updated with same timestamp is this normal also?

    2) I noticed a slight discrepancy between my PHL NearestLocation device value of (0.004 mi) and PHL SIDistToHome device which has a value of (0 Miles) I would have expected them to be the same as my PHL Fix Accuracy is 5 Meters. Also I notice that format of the unit measurement for PHL SIDistToHome, PHL Driving Distance are all "Miles" whilst PHL NearestLocation is "mi"? Mike
    1. The design is that it should only update the location data (lat, lon, accuracy etc) if the location has changed. (Min dist to move set for that device has been exceeded).
    If it hasn't moved it should still update the other devices like battery level and charging state etc but only if they have changed.

    2. Not in front of the code right now but I think the difference will be due to the decimal places. The nearest known location distance shown in brackets after the name is to 3 decimal places and the SL dist to home is only 2. If you open the SL dist to home device and look on the Advanced tab, does it show the same value (or thereabouts)?

    Try changing the decimal places on the Status / Graphics tab for the SL dist to home device to 3 and see if they then match.

    No problem man.
    I'm a geek by trade so I have the foresight to visualise what can be achieved given the tools at hand.

    Again I'm only about 48hours in with this PL2 as well as Homeseer Variable replacements.

    It's all coming together.
    The magic is coming alive

    Gaurave, I tried your extract and replaced the DSR with my Long/Lat device but something seems amiss I get to google map but I only see the Long value with a "no result found for your search which is obvious as it doesn't have the second value.. More clues please

    Randy, looking at both values (URL address and Log/Lat device) they seem to match so am I missing something, I will try using the URL also since I'm in the learning mode, Mike

    UPDATE: Using the URL address device produced a working Map which is good

    Where those DSR "values" return Longitude, Latitude.

    Within the Pushover message it appears in Blue highlight to depict a hyperlink (see Original Post above) - once clicked from within the Pushover message it opens up in Google Maps App on my droid. Beautifully.

    Thinking outside the box really comes into it's own with HS3 & these powerful Plugins.

    I tried this but it's not as accurate as Long and Latitude in my tests, which is near enough pin point. I trialled with majority of the child values.
