    another edit: after unzipping the update package, looking at the details of hspi_phlocation2. exe shows product version of 3.0.0.41.
    Sorry I thought I had fixed the download.
    I have just re-uploaded .42 which should now all be in order.

    Has anyone tried using PHLocation2 with a traccar server? And anyone tried using a Freematics ODB II dongle to track their car? Both of these are open source projects and work together. They seem ideal for integration with a DIY home automation platform like Homeseer.

    Also, does the PHLocation2 traccar device expect to be reaching out to a traccar server or receive data updates directly from a traccar client?

    The plug-in does not make any changes to the order of the address data it receives from the 3rd party service although it may be possible to allow this to be user configurable.

    Sometimes the HS3 plug-ins interface does not show the correct version until HS3 is re-started.
    Go to Plug-Ins>PHLocation2>Configuration and it should show the correct version.

    i have seen a little problem in Reverse Geocode Data Provider,

    Most of the times it does not show the street numbers at all..
    Im here in the netherlands and dit test it but no numbers.

    Also is it possible to show it like this [street] [number] [postalcode] [town] at the adress device because now its here all messed up.
    I did use all providers(except google) because im out of api requestall the time.

    The second issue is that after a plugin restart (Force update of position devices) gets unchecked again.


    I would also do a request to add a number device, that shows the current home number where you are at.

    Right now I am getting this in the log for Life360
    Jan-12 17:07:07 PHLocation2 Error (PollAccount) LF Error in GetCircles.
    Jan-12 17:07:07 PHLocation2 Error (GetCircles) Auth failed for RootRef: 4213 exiting Sub.

    I have verified the service account setup and actually logged into the Life360 website from my HomeSeer box, any ideas?

    Paul and Randy, did not want this one to get lost, just in case someone was having the same issue that I was... I found out what my trouble with Life360 and PHLocation2 was and wanted to share my findings...

    I have always logged into the Life360 website with my phone number and password. However this did not work for setting up the Life360 service account with PHLocation2. Once I changed from cell number to using the email address, all went well.

    Sorry for any confusion.

    The Force Update box is designed to clear after 10 updates. It is only for troubleshooting. Updates are designed to be applied based on the minimum distance to move setting in each position device. That box temporarily overrides those settings.

    I'm using Backitude with location steals on my phone which works great, except for the altitude. I noticed that Backitude is sending the wrong altitude over to PHLocation 2. My GPS app on my phone shows an altitude of 100 feet, but Backitude would show an altitude of 25 feet. This would then reflect in PHLocation 2.

    There is an option in Backitude to disable reporting of altitude data by removing the request parameter key for Altitude which prevents sending this over to PHLocation 2. (No key value - Request will not contain this field). When I do this, I'm not getting any altitude updates in PHLocation 2.

    How is the elevation data utilized in PHL2? Is there any way to utilize the elevation data to calculate the altitude from the lat/lon if no data is received from Backitude? I have a google and mapquest api entered and elevation data is configured to use these sources, but the altitude is never updated.
    Could be a conversion issue if Backitude is sending the data in different units although 100 feet doesn't equal 25 metres? I don't have Backitude to test but if you drop me an email I'll explain how you can get me some more info which may help to debug the issue.

    If you remove the altitude parameter from the Backitude app so it doesn't send a value, then assuming you have a primary elevation provider set on the plug-in config>API's page it will attempt to obtain the data from the lat / lon.

    Hi Guys,

    I have got PHLocation2 installed and working. so far so good.
    I have my minimum distance to move set to 1km on my icloud. However when im walking around the site at work my time at location drops to 0m (site would be lucky to be 500m).
    Should having this set to 1km stop this from happening? i think that how i did it in PHL1.

    thanks
