I have added to my contacts locations that we frequent. Such as, our credit union, downtown, Target, etc. I asked Siri to remind me to go to my bank when we left Target, but it just came up with the whole spiel about not understanding me, and explaining that I could set a reminder for a time or when I leave or arrive from/at a location.

Also, cannot call people based on their nicknames.

Did you say the name of the bank? Siri doesn't necessarily know which one is your bank, just by the name.

No. It should not need the name or location of the bank, as what it should do is:
- Set Location-Based Reminder upon leaving Target
- Remind to 'Go to my bank'.

edit: Also, I did try giving Siri the addresses of both Target and my bank, even though both are in my contacts.
