    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

    Here's the event I'm using to announce when I'm on the way home. When I'm within 15 minutes drive time of home and I'm on the move (time at location is zero), and the current location has been none for at least 12 minutes (this was added so when leaving home, I have enough time to get outside the 15 minute driving radius), then HS3 will announce I'm heading home. It's not perfect but does seem to work. The old way was to use the approaching device to tell if I was heading towards home which made the event more simple (just check if within a certain radius and if the direction was approaching).

    Find my iPhone wasn’t working which tells me it wasn’t PHL2. We have a constant connect VPN and her iPhone was not updating. Mine was.

    For me, Find My iPhone is working. Don't think I have the same issue.

    Definitely not updating. It is showing my last location with a timestamp where I was last night when I manually pressed the poll button.

    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.
