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.

    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.

    This is a GeoFency issue and not at all related to PHL. It depends on your phone and its sight of the GPS satellites. As John was explaining, this is the product of varying accuracy of your phone's GPS. How large is your fence? With our older iphones we had to go out to 300-500 meters to get this to stop. With the newer phones we can reduce that distance. My new iPhone doesn't false trigger even at 100 meters. Our watches (on iCloud) are less stable. I honestly do not see any reason the fence needs to be that tight. the iOS devices can also be adjusted in terms of minimum distance to move and the Known Locations by virtue of their radius.

    It is all a matter of tuning your system to match the stability and accuracy of your GPS equipped devices. I think one mistake people make is trying to get the radius of fences and the minimum distance to move too tight.

    I started a new thread here.

    Well that could cause problems as well. GPS is a radio signal and buildings/walls can cause interference. Some apps will compensate and others won't.

    Without further information from Geofency and the GPS info I can't be positive. However based on my experience with other GPS devices and with Large scale GPS tracking platforms this looks like a common GPS phenomenon we call "jitter". A GPS device even the best out there have a jitter effect or "bouncing" effect. Some high end GPS units have a feature called "pinning" so when the vehicle/device is stopped the unit will pin the last lat/lon location and use it until the next "start" example "Ignition On" event happens. Cell phones/apps don't have a "ignition on" to start/stop/pin them. Apps sometimes try to compensate by pinning location when movement stops and holds onto that location data but not all apps do this. From a server/collector stand point you can do some referencing by time of receipt, last message age etc we have that with Simplex Locate for notifications.

    I know this isn't an answer to your problem, but I thought I would jump in and maybe try to explain what is happening.

    Paul..
    If you could do the approaching/static/leaving using a child device for the home location only now and then only trigger/condition without devices down the road for the other known locations, that would be great.
