    Ok so ever since I got my new iPhone 6+ I've had issues with it knowing where I live. This works completely fine on my 5s at this same location. It seems my contact data is all messed up as well. It has my address listed several times. When I edit and delete it looks fine, then I go back into contacts to view and it lists my address twice again. I finally discovered that it was pulling the 2nd address from my facebook linked contact of myself. So i unlinked it and now there shows two of me in my contacts list and my phone STILL does know that this is my home. Anyone know how to fix this or how to correctly link your personal contact to your facebook? I really would like to get this resolved because I like to often use the "it will take you this long to get home" data it gives you in Notification Center. Plus it also learns your travel schedule and tells you how long it will take you to get someone where at days and times you normally go somewhere. If anyone can offer advice or help me at all I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks if advanced!

    In Settings > Mail, Contact, Calendars > scroll down to Contacts, what does it show under My Info?

    Try deleting your own contact completely, and re-entering it again with your full address, then link to your new contact details in My Info. It does take some time for your iPhone to recognize regular trips you make - to work and back - before you get the data in Notification Centre.

    This seems to have cleared up the weird contact info problem. I will let it go for a week or so and see if the data starts to show up in Notification Center! Thanks so much for your help and insight! I really appreciate it! =)

    I find it can take around 10 days before your travel data appears. Be patient! ;)
