    Uber "False Positive" Acceptance Rate is Killing Customers

    As I write this, I'm staring at another Uber mess on my driving account. A passenger requested a ride that was accidentally accepted by me because of the awful way that Uber has implemented their new driver app. Normally, I immediately cancel these "false positive" acceptances but this time...

    Driver App using huge data since 2019

    As of January my Android app tripled its data usage from about 2 to 3 Gig to about 8-9 gig. Is anyone else seeing this increase? Its exceeding my 6gig plan. Are they data mining or is it a new result of a horrible new app that barely works?

    Uber Navigation Problems

    It seems like every 3rd to 4th trip the Uber navigation takes me to a wrong location. Either it takes me to a wrong house number or a location a half-mile through-the-woods away. This happens with both Google Maps and the native Uber navigation app. (My phone's navigation works correctly with...

    Uber Drive app on an Android tablet.

    I struggle with the driver app on my cell phone. Small display is rough on my 67 year old eyes. Today for the hell of it I downloaded and installed the driver app on my Android tablet. Worked great and much easier to see. I was under the impression that the driver app would not run on a...

    New Driver - App Questions

    Hello, Yesterday was my first day driving with Lyft. I did three rides, and I had some problems. They may just be a misunderstanding on my part how I think the app works. When I accepted the ride I clicked on the arrow (to the right of the pickup address) to enter navigation mode. When I...

    No Respect At All

    When app developers update their apps, they usually provide a wealth of information on new features and bug fixes... ...but not Uber. They don’t even respect us enough to even tell us what modifications they’ve made to the driver app that we have to put on our own phones and use when working...

    Is there a way to see the live surge in a neighboring state?

    I live in South Jersey and usually drive in Philadelphia which happens to be 20min away from me. I have to pay a toll to go over there and it’s worth it because of the amount of rides you get as well as higher payout. Looking for a way to see the current live Uber driver map in the neighboring...

    Driver app turning Bluetooth on

    One of the things on the list support sends you for their scripted response to 'not getting trip requests' is '4) Make sure that your Bluetooth is turned off because it can interfere with the signal'. Something seemingly randomly kept turning Bluetooth back on after I turned it off and I found...

    Airport Queue missing from driver app?

    I was near Syd airport last night and the airport queue wasnt showing on the app. I noticed the new ride notification has changed too. Is this a new "improvement", removing the indication of how many cars are waiting? If there is no way of knowing if there are three cars or three hundred it's...

    Uber Scheduled Rides

    I know that Uber Scheduled Rides have been discussed before on the forum, but I'm still not clear on a few points. Is there any way for drivers to distinguish a scheduled ride from a normal ride, before or after start? Do Scheduled Rides tend to be "longer", more profitable trips (like...
