Just tried to set up a geofence and wanted to just surround the house but can''t make geofence smaller than .10 or extend to 3 digits. Poo. Location is near stores that are frequented and if the geofence is .10 it includes said stores so I won''t know if/when target leaves.

.01 surrounds just the house. .02 extends into neighbor''s yard. .015 would be PERFECT.

thank you. :)

A length smaller than 0.1 (kilometer or mile) is not possible. GPS location has accuracy issue, especially when the target device is in-door. This accuracy issue will create a lot of false alarms if you set the length too small.

Going thru my posts and saw this. just wanted to update that .10 kilomter is smaller than .10 mile. It makes the geofence that much more localized.

So for the smallest area possible for a geofence use .10 kilometer.
