Smart Actions Location Trigger unreliable in ICS

2012-07-10, 0:05 AM

Hello,


 


I've just updated my Razr Maxx to ICS several days ago and ever since then the Location trigger I use for work is completely unreliable. It's constantly turning on and off all day long. I mainly use the smart action here to make sure my phone is automatically on vibrate throughout the day at work and I can't really rely on it at this point. Prior to updating to ICS it worked perfectly.


I noticed you do not need to leave WIFI on anymore for location triggers to work, but at the same time I see wifi in my battery usage while wifi has toggled off. Is this new version manually turning on WIFI to determine location? I've tried leaving WIFI on and it doesn't seem to make a difference, it's still inconsistent.


Also, I've already tried resetting Smart Actions to default and wiping out all smart actions and starting from scratch. It did not seem to help.


Thanks for any help.

 I have a Droid 4 and I have similiar problems.  It seems that it can find my Home just fine, but when I go anywhere else, the location in Smart Actions gets a bit out of whack.  Like this morning it thought I was in Africa, thereform my Work profile (in NJ) did not trigger.  It also seems to toggle a lot.  I've even tried keeping the GPS on to help it get a lock, and it just doesn't get it all the time.  But if I check in Maps, it's dead on to my location.


 


Any news on this would be great!
