The maximum distance a notification can extend is 50 miles, or (surprisingly) 80 kilometers.

 

Most people base their notifications on their 'Home Co-ordinates', but you can make the center of your notification any set of co-ordinates you want.

 

Extending your notification area to (let's say) 100 miles/160 kilometers would require 9 or 10 separate notifications with plenty of overlapping areas...meaning you might get three emails for one cache placed in just the wrong area.

 

Do you really need to know RIGHT NOW that a cache was placed over 25 miles/40 kilometers away?

Will you really drive that far just to get an FTF?

No its not a case of FTF but as we travel long distances for a day or two, it would be nice to know if there are any new ones added at the last moment before we leave home.

Unless you are frequently traveling a long distance to the same place, it might be more efficient to set up a "caches along a route" pocket query and/or a pocket query covering your destination area. Run the pocket query days in advance of your trip for planning purposes, and then run it again on the morning that you leave for your trip to pick up any new listings and to spot caches that were recently archived or disabled.
