For several months now I have been using this notification for up to 10 miles from my home. I have not even been in there to edit them and the last week I have been getting some that are over 20 miles away. I go into my settings and it still says 10 miles. Any suggestions?

Now that you mention it, I remembered I got a notification on a cache placed 25 miles from my home. All my notifications are set to 20 miles. Strange.. maybe there's a bug in their code. They still state that the notification system is experimental.

I have the opposite problem. There was a new cache less than 2 miles from my house a few days ago and I never got notified.

Yup, same problem here. Getting random notifications that are further away. To the best of my knowledge, I've gotten all of the ones I was supposed to get, just extras. They must have made a change recently.

I haven't been getting any notifications for a few days. I just use the 'nearest caches' feature. Sad

I thought I didn't have this problem but now I just realized I didn't receive a notification for rickrich's new puzzle: Foreword by Dave Ulmer

Update: Just got the notification for that cache and two others. All 3 had posted founds already. Pocket queries are slow too!
