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.

The closest 6 or 8 cars (depending on the market) should automatically show up in the Uber rider app without you having to do anything special. The only two exceptions I can think of are if your cell service is bad and it can't connect to load the data, or if there are actually no Ubers in the area.

At a minimum you should see your own car if you are online.

If you're on android, side load an older version and set it to not auto-update the app. No need to enter a destination to see ants. I think any version prior to Oct 2016 will do what you want.

Thanks. In recent days the app has been showing cards even when I don't type in a destination. Even, in one case, a car that definitely wasn't there (see my post about "phantom" cars in the general tech section if interested).
