    How do I get cars to show up on the Uber passenger app map?

    I'm a new driver. I downloaded the passenger app so that I could see how many other Uber drivers are near me and select a waiting location that was well away from everyone else. But no other cars show up on the map. I can't find any activation button for that feature.

    This morning, I was at the Tuggeranong Town Centre. I turned on the rider app to see how many other drivers were in the area. The rider app suggested that I was at the South African High Commission in Yarralumla near Parliament House, some significant distance from where I in fact was. I turned...

    Official from Uber: You see RED on map but passenger doesn't see surge price.
