    Hello....I set my location services and reminders service to remind me to log business miles every time I either leave my house or return to my house. It is very helpful. However, for about a month now, the phone alerts me (reminds me) to do this even if I am just at home, watching TV or something. No movement of the phone at all. It'll happen 5-6 times a day, and it's kind of bothersome. Anybody have an idea on a fix?

    BTW, WIFI enabled, and good AT&T bars.

    Just a thought, but if you have it set to remind you when you return home, that is what it may be doing. Not sure how sophisticated that function is.

    Or, you must have a really large house. :D

    Mine does the same. I'm no expert but I believe it has sth to do with the satellite data due to weather change. I'm just winging.

    My solution was to reset my home address to a few hundred meters down the road as I have only one option. This way, I not only eliminated the constant alert, but also the reminders for "arrival at home address" are earlier than usual giving me plenty of time to take action.
