Ive been wondering why my friend couldnt find a group I started.
I found on the Wiki that the radius is 62 miles (100Km).
I belong to a car club and we all wanted to be able to track and communicate to each other using the group but seems as though we cant yet

Yes there is a group radius, and albeit I don't know the exact value, it seems to be quite small, assume it as a local town group in the range of probably 10 to 25Km according to my own tests, but I may be wrong. I think I saw a value in the forum but I can't find it now. But groups are scheduled to be revamped as a better feature, so just wait for it.

I'm having the same problem. A friend who's 100 miles away cannot see my group.

When can we expect to see this expanded?

If my friend searches while he's near me, will he see it?

Is the group attached to my location or where I was when I created the group??

It seems that the group is attached to your geographic region but not your device's location. My friend came to DC and was able to join my group. I tried to join his group that was created in Richmond while he was in DC but I still could not see it.

What you can do is in your group, click on the members tab, search for your friend's name, click his name and it will show all the groups he has joined, locate his group that is out of your region and click join.
