I have wasted hours on this now but here are some things I found that might help others with the problem.


Siri was saying "Idon't know where your home is" I read a few discussions and as a consequence removed all of my address details and added them one by one until Siri recognised my address. I then set some reminders based on leaving home. They didn't work so I checked the reminders and found the locations to be a completely different address in the city which isn't in my address book. It had seemed to pick up on one word from my house name and use that for the road. However, it offered the correct address as an alternative which works when selected.


Eventually I stripped my address card back to just the street and post code. This works, removing my house name seems to have been a big turning point, it has the word lodge in it and Siri was locking onto a lodge road elsewhere in the city. It still offers the correct address in the reminder as an alternative location but at least pin points the correct position.


If anybody can offer an improvement on this please post.

    Yes, it seems that for some reason unless you click directly on the address in the contact in the address book (which spookily recognises the address and takes you directly to it in Apple maps) - every other integration throughout ios seems to scan the address and pick up on whatever words it feels like to try and 'guess' your address.


    And siri never knows where you live. I fear he is as r3tarded as the person who coded the address integration within ios 6. If the new Apple administration has any balls they should fire this guy straight away and go and find the good coders they used to have. Google is probably a good starting place to look..............
