    I'm using Galaxy S8 Plus, the "Reminders" app. It has a function to push reminders when you arrive at a specific location, and lets you preset both a "Home" and an "Office" address. Problem is that my "Home" is set to some other house, and I can't figure out how to change it.

    Things I've tried:
    1) Long-pressing on the text. Doesn't work.
    2) Clearing the app's data in Settings. It cleared everything *except* my location presets
    3) I figured it was interfacing with the Maps app, but that app has my home address correct.

    Any ideas?

    Can you workaround it by calling "home" by another name and using the correct address there? Until you figure out why it won't allow you to change...

    Change your home or work address
    Open the Google Maps app .
    Tap Menu Your places Labeled.
    Next to "Home" or "Work," tap More Edit home or Edit work.
    Clear the current address, then add a new address.

    You never know with these devices, my S8 would insist on turning on my GPS despite all my efforts to kill the thing! Eventually I tracked it to google maps having my home address. I deleted that and problem solved! I just call my home location by another name now...
