    I am also on 3.0.0.64

    I have noticed a few strange things. On the way home from work, I was watching the PHLocation devices. The distance to home was increasing ! At the same rate, distance to work was also increasing (which makes sense). Before I left work, I created a new location in the Life360 app, I added a Gym location. I entered my home address, the same as I have for home in Life360... now that distance decreased on the way home, once arrived at home nearest location is gym with 0.032m distance. Home (remember, same location is now 64.8m away)
    I double checked known locations in HS4 the PH PI, they are correct and the same as home and gym...

    Hard to get your head around that... well I cant understand it no matter how hard I try...

    All I could do is use Gym as home location. But that does not come up as known location (only shows as nearest). It shows as multiple locations in the Life360 current location device

      Thinking out loud here, anything to do with some mix of metric and imperial? I see 15 metres, 87.6 miles. I have everything in imperial.

        Can this : https://jphuddlestone.co.uk/phlocati...e/Life360.html help? Somewhere along the lines it stipulates to Sync Palaces...

          I always had everything except accuracy in imperial. Not sure why accuracy is in meters tbh, it never bothered me so never tried to change it.

              Delete Home Location in the Phone App then HomeSeer and recreate. The Device ID should change by design....

                I was too busy yesterday to change anything, and this morning distance to home started updating again. Phew. No idea why all of a sudden its working again, but never mind.
                But not everything is back as it should.
                The device current location is stuck on multiple locations. It does not change to work or home. Nearest location works, its showing distance to work or home, whichever is closest, so as it should. Anything regarding device address has a reverse geo error. I used to get those occasionally, then all of a sudden they disappear and show address, postcode etc again. But this is stuck now for a few days.

                  Google made extra configurations on how APIs are used. There is too much to go through... also make sure you not restricting yourself from some parts of the API. I don't know if this : https://cloud.google.com/docs/authen...617684577&rd=1 adds value but worth looking into.


                  *** Just also hopping that non of the browsers (web) on devices like IPAD or desktop at work or at home are not left logged in your Google account when you are mobile...
