    Ever time I arrived at designated street my google maps changes to gps numbers not street address only changes once I get message House is on left or right. Very frustrating

    Once you’re on the street switch back to uber app.
    Much more accurate at pinpointing the exact spot/house where your rider is.

    The longitude/latitude feature works better for autonomous vehicles. Since they will outnumber human drivers in 3 years, there is no need for a change.

    Uber probably only sends the pin location when transferring to Google Maps, which reads as coordinates. Like Noe said, just switch to Uber nav. as you approach or turn on the street (or memorize the address prior to switching to Google). As Google and Lyft are "buddies", it's not likely this will improve in anyway for Uber.
