    Does Uber Stalk Drivers When Offline? I think Uber is Stalking Me

    True Story; I for one strongly believe that Uber and Lyft do know that you use both platforms. The GPS still tracks you when you go offline. Im sure this has happened to people but it feels like stalking; I was in center city Philadelphia and had both apps on. Lyft pinged me first. I switched...

    Pax Demon Child

    So I got a ping for Demon Child. Almost didn't accept. It was only a few minutes away so I thought at least I would go and check out the pax. If it did look like a demon, whatever that is, I would cancel. Turns out she was a nice sweet girl, at least in my short experience. What's interesting...

    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...

    Jamming GPS at Pearson airport

    Since UberX has been allowed at Pearson, has anyone noticed their GPS signals have been out of whack? Does anyone else suspect GPS jamming from taxi drivers as retaliation?

    Uber Mapping Vehicle, spotted in El Segundo

    Didn't know Uber was doing their own street mapping, until I saw this in El Segundo. Driver's side door just says "Uber." Passenger side door says, "" Top rack has cameras. Well, no wonder my pick-ups are in back-alleys!

    Uber loves to make it harder on pax sometimes

    There is a place in my city where it is extremely challenging to cross the street... as in, 45 mph, 6 lanes of traffic, and a big concrete barrier blocking u-turns. No intersection. On one side of the barrier is a light rail station, lots of passengers. On the other side is a strip bar and a...

    GPS funkiness

    Pickup was at a store 20 yards from me. Same parking lot. Would have loved to watch a pax face as a robot car drives away from the pickup location! "Your car is only 2.8 miles away."

Here it is most recent example address: 1326 Dundas St E, Toronto, ON google maps: link GPS brought me exactly to the back alley of the house where...
