    Uber map default routes sometimes embarrassing

    Yesterday I picked up a fare in Burbank, California headed to LAX. The Uber app directed me through mostly surface streets the entire way to the airport. This was an ordeal for both the passenger and myself. Later, I got another fare going to LAX. I got on the route I knew would be fastest...

    WTF Uber/Google?!?!?

    For the second time in a couple of weeks, the Uber app and/or Google Maps has placed me over a mile away from where I was supposed to be. Pax was waiting outside her dorm for me, I thought I was supposed to be at a residence (this was unclear on the phone). The map sent me 1.7 miles on top of a...

    Uber Navigation

    Anyone use the "new and improved" Uber Navigation? I usually use Google Maps or Waze but it'd be more convenient to just stay in the app I would think. Any feedback? Thanks!

    Navigation Problems

    What Navigation problems have you had and what did you do to "fix" them? Most drivers use either Waze or Google Maps in addition to the navigation provided by the driver-App. They have many similar problems and others unique to one App. I primarily use Waze and consistently have 3 problems...

    Google navigation cuts out around I25 and I225

    I've had my google navigation cut out around I25 and I225 on a couple of occasions, now (once was this evening on the way to the Hyatt). It has always come back on a few miles later. Are there any tricks to get it back online? Anyone else have this problem? Is this a "dead zone"?

    Hello all: While keying in directions on Google Maps (both mobile and PC) from Central New Jersey to the Philadelphia Airport (non-Uber), it routes you from the NJ Turnpike to I-276 West and then to a non-existent ramp to I-95 south in PA. This route is incorrect, as this ramp will not be...

    It's 2016 - When will Google Maps understand we live in a 3-D world!!??!

    It has stopped being funny and has become an annoyance again to me. How come Google Maps still sends you to the Bay Bridge when dropping someone underneath?? (e.g. Pier 24) like it tried to do to me last week. Caught early as well. Or today, going to drop a pax at Selby street (mostly under...

    Google Map Tip - Take it off satellite mode

    I realized that if you have Google Maps set on satellite, it works a lot slower. When you make a turn, it takes several seconds to update which can put you past your next turn. It probably depends on your phone and location but if you have this problem, take it off satellite mode. This may...

    When I start out with Google Maps on a Lyft pickup, there are voice directions. But I don't get these directions after the first street I turn on. Any ideas?

    Question on the MAP Program In the Driver App

    I wanted to ask about the situation on the Partner App and the MAPS Powering it. I had read over and over that the UBER Map portion of the Partner App basically was the pits and always select Google Maps. But I remeber reading somewhere recently that now the Partner App is powered by Google Maps...

    Enable WiFi To Maximize Google Maps Accuarcy

    Here is a quick tip I hope some will find helpful when using Google Maps for navigation. Make sure your WiFi is enabled. Google Maps uses GPS, WiFi and mobile networks to estimate your location. I've noticed when my Wi-Fi is turned off, GM is not as accurate. To make sure your location setting...

    I'm kind of new and wondering which navigation app you prefer? I'm currently using Waze set to Quickest Route. Sometimes I feel like it takes me on crazy routes. What are your thoughts?
