editing notification distance doesn't update new distance

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to edit my notification distance to pick up newly published caches in my neighboring communities.  My original distance was 80 kilometers, I'm trying to update it to 200  or 250 kilometers.  I enter the new distance and then select edit notification, I get an instant message on screen that it has been updated but it remains at 80 kilometers. 

I even tried deleting the notification and then creating a new one and it still stays at 80 kilometers, its like it has a memory of 80 and won't save anything else. 

Tried this a least a dozen times over the past couple of months thinking maybe it was just a bug and may have been fixed. Nope.

Just a hunch...  What happens if you try to lower the limit, say to 75?

 

If it accepts that, you've likely bumped into an upper limit, maybe an undocumented one.  (I don't have the patience to try to find that spot right now.)  Good luck.

I cannot edit my distance any higher only lower, so I think Viajero has a good guess.

Thank you I did some more reading in the help center, it appears that 80 kilometers is the maximum from one's home location.

I'm going to try a different way, create a new notification with neighboring communities postal code, that might work.

Yep! That's what I do.

Yeah I would like to increase it over 80km too but sadly it's the max. Would be useful for event for example.
