I really like the idea of location based reminders, and would love to use them more.
When I first tried them, they worked great. I had it setup to remind me to do something when I got home, and the alert would fire when I pulled into my driveway. I have my home address in my address card as being my actual address, which routes correctly.
Now though, they never go off. When I go to the reminder, and then look at current location, it always seems to have a very exact address, but not mine. For example, I may live at 123 Main Street, but it says that I am at 432 Broad Road (which may be only a house or two away around a corner).
I have not seen a difference when being outside or inside. I used to think the location services were just not working correctly, but then when I went to the current location in Reminders, it was always a little off, and I figured thats why the event wouldn't fire.
Is there any way I can get this to work better? If anything, I would like it to be less sensitive. As in, let me know when I am very close to the location, which would work for me.
This is on an AT&T iPhone 4. My wife has a 4S, and hers only slightly works better. When using other apps, location is actually more precise, and usually only a house number off (I think due to how the underlying GIS system is done).
