    This seems to fit the issue that I'm having.
    When I looked at the saved Trusted Place, (when Smart Lock is NOT working), the phone's location has drifted outside the circle.
    Once I adjust it, Smart Lock works again.
    Even in Maps, my location is off more than usual.

    I am having the same problem, Miklb. Stated a couple weeks ago. Cleared cache, worked for a bit then stopped. Updated location, worked for a day then stopped. Just reset location again. I'm wondering if it has to do problems with the gps, location accuracy and not the smart unlock feature. It seems it works until I leave home and when I come back, it stops but I'll have to pay more attention to see if that is truly the case. The smart unlock feature works for all other instances I have set up (car, watch) but not for home.

    Oops, posted this not realizing I hadn't read all the posts. Now that I have, I see we seem to know it is a problem wth location services.

    Ok, trying something different. Google maps high accuracy is not very accurate. Had me located at my neighbors. Doesn't seem to matter if I set wifi & Bluetooth accuracy on. I moved to different perimeters of my home (center, far north and far south) and placed all those locations as trusted locations. We'll see if that works any better.

    Dang it. I hate it when someone else thinks of my idea before I do....
    Great idea!
    Mine has worked well all day today. Next time it's not, I may try that too.

    It's a shame we have to do things like this in this day & age, but I'll be interested to see how it works for you!

    So far, so good but I'll know better when I get back home. I'll keep you all posted.

    It's a logical solution.

    Yeah, but we're back to not working again. Makes no sense because when I go to edit one of my locations, it has me located dead center in that trusted location. I'm baffled! [​IMG]

    I noticed the same thing this morning. I was going to walk my phone into the radius of the zone to see if it would start working on its own, but when I opened the Trusted Place, I was already inside the circle.
