    I created a backitude user and renamed it "Steve phone". The home direction device is what Paul added in the latest release. I had to rebuild child devices to get it.

    Doh! I was expecting to have to dig deep somewhere. Sorry!

    Anyways, one phone has over 40 positions, but no map shows and the other one has only 5 positions which all show. I'll double check to make sure all the settings are identical and see what happens. STRANGE!

    I get lunch when SWMBO asks for it

    The history viewer is on the dropdown from PHL2.

    Then select the user, end date, end time and duration.

    The history map is generated form the database. That will be determined by the minimum distance to move setting as well as the polling rate. What does your DB history look like?

    Forget my rambling post. I figured it out. I apologize.

    I have a monitored position device using my cars latitude and longitude. It seems to be working fine regarding location and distance and all the other sub devices that are produced. However, should there be a location device under my monitored position device as there are under Geofency? For instance, when I get home under geofency the home device is inside. However, when I get home with my car there is no corresponding home device. Does that make sense? What I am looking for is the redundancy that was there with V1. Shouldn't it be the if Geofency becomes inside home or the car becomes inside home that a global home location device would be inside?

    With a simple event I do get a bread crumb trail but unsure why there are so few points. I have BK set at 15 minutes. I assure you it takes longer than 15 minutes to go anywhere in this area. This is a map from a few days ago just before I disabled and removed PHL1.

    I've been home all day with only a short trip to get lunch for my wife. I have 18 points in the database and a map showing 19 points. There is always one extra point in the history map, because it looks at the last location previous to the time period as the starting point.

    Here is my history

    Yesterday I drove twice to a place about 8 miles away and there were 133 points

    There are no limits. There are no bandwidth concerns. It may use some of your plan's data, but I would think it is a vary small amount. Every time iCloud is polled, it reaches out to all devices on that account and queries their location. When your phone is queried, it does impact battery life. 1 minute polling on my old iPhone 6 would kill the battery within 12 hours. My new phone hardly feels it. Polling as frequently as a minute will give you near real time updates. That is the fastest PHL2 can poll the account. You just need to make your decision balancing battery life and the need for position updates. We poll ours at 1 minute intervals when we are moving, not at a known location and within 25 miles of home. At known locations, we reduce it. When we are beyond 25 miles from home we reduce it. When the batteries are below 60% we reduce it.

    I see post 254 as Mike's as well. It's this one: https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/te...82#post1276982 and he's using Tasker, not Geofency.

    Lastly, here's the crumb trail from PHL1 without any events, just using the Map Viewer. This was probably a 5 minute polling rate.

    GeoFency and iCloud are unrelated. ICloud devices have users. GeoFency uses HS Devices.
