    for those of you that have spent time using them, how accurate and reliable are they?

    Thanks.

    They work very reliably. I live in Manhattan where density of addresses is obviously quite high, so when I have a notification, for example, for home, it may go off within a block or two as I'm walking home, but it's consistent and one of my most used features.

    Tried it twice and neither worked. Haven't bothered since.

    I've had horrible luck with them. I'd set them while on wifi and they'd get triggered when I passed by a certain cell tower three miles away. It kept happening to me so much I finally gave up on them.

    Using location based reminders almost every day, very reliable, no complaints.

    I use them to remind to do things when I get to my office. Haven't failed me yet.

    I use weekly and have a maybe 95% success rate.

    I think having location turn your ringer on/off based on location would be nice, don't think that is possible though.
