    I've tested it numerous times... can't get the reminder to trigger! I have the address and locations right.

    Any tips to fix the issue?

    It kind of worked for me, but it triggered the reminder about 1km away so i think there are some bugs with it.

    Cortana seems to be buggin out a bit. This is a developers preview. I believe they have a bit more freedom to fix bugs being that Cortana is a service.

    It triggered 150ft away from destination. Almost the right distance. I think 50-100 ft would be good depending on connection.

    Check GPS. Readjust the compass. Calibration. Maybe?

    I check the map. My location is pretty dang accurate. Don't understand why the reminder doesn't trigger.

    you could ask cortana to remind you when you get someplace i believe

    also, Wi-fi can be set to be reenabled when you arrive at a favorite desintaion i htink,

    In cortana you can say "Remind me to kiss my wife when i get home", and when you get home it will remind you. You can also turn wifi off and set it to turn on when you are at one of your favorite places. You need to set places up in Cortana's settings.

    Yeah. I'm getting it to trigger but it's only triggering 10-15 minutes after I arrive or leave a location. I don't know how this is going to work with something like "remind me to get bread when I pass my favorite store" I'll be home sitting on the couch when the reminder triggers! If anyone figures this out, please post it.

    Same, I had to return soemthing to my friend and it had set a reminder by Cortana to remind me that when I leave my home. It triggered when I was about 800 metres away from my home.

    I'm in the same boat. :( No matter what those damn reminders don't trigger. I too was wandering around the place with the map open, but still no reminder for me. I even forgot to buy bread trying to trigger the "Buy bread" reminder. Lol.

    i found out that "geofencing" is sometimes(?) just off. no idea how that works or why. usually it is off when i would need geofencing. so i never get a reminder when i leave home or the Office.

    to check if it is off or on go to Settings -> Location and scroll down to the bottom. id guess "Current Status: tracking geofences" is good. but there is no obvious way to find out how to enable it when it turns off (for whatever reason)
