Home location difference!!

Recommended Posts

Hi, I wonder if anyone can shed light on my problem? When I get an email notification it tells me the distance of the cache from my home location, but when I go to the Geocaching App, it then tells me the distance from a previous address! I Have already updated this info a long time ago (over a year)  but makes no difference..... Anyone?

Which App are you using?  Android or iPhone?

 

Have you logged out of the app, shut down your phone, and then logged back into the app?

 

Did you change your home location on your profile settings, or just in your instant notification settings?

Hi Keystone,  I'm using an iPhone, yes logged out deleted app re installed and updated location in preferences! That was some time ago but I'll give it another go....

I'm moving this thread from the Geocaching Topics forum so that the developers of the iPhone App will see it.

There's some contradictory info in this thread, but it sounds to me like you have not updated the origin point of your notifications at http://www.geocaching.com/notify . The origin point of the notification is static, so even if you initially fill it in using your home location, it will not change when you update your home location.

Thanks  Moun10Bike, It makes sense now... Doh! I need to go into my original settings for the various types of caches and change my location there, that's why  I was getting confused. I see the light!! Cheers
