Set Destination - Manly to Nth Syd (Balmain ride)

Set to Nth Sydney from Manly, but Uber decided that Balmain was Nth Syd. It then kicked me off Set Dest, claiming High Demand, but then no jobs. Not the first time it's done that. Thoughts?

If I REALLY wanted to be in North Sydney at a set time, I would have booted the pax out once the destination was displayed. Afterall, they are supposed to be "sharing" a ride.

If I just wanted to get the F out of Manly and was happy to keep driving for a while, no issue.

Set Dest without setting arrival time is random AF. Use the arrival time function but then you’ll get no jobs.

I set destination yesterday from pyrmont to bonnyrigg. @@@@@ took me to lane cove!
Yep, that's it, they think taking you to Lane Cove progresses you closer to Bonnyrigg. They're frking dumb @@@@s!!!

Got one last night thats a shocker (no arrival time set):
SD to Royal North Shore Hospital St Leonards from West Pennant Hills.
Get a ping WPH to Collaroy.
WPH is 23 km from RNSH, Collaroy is 24km.

So the theory of giving you an SD ping to bring you closer to your destination even if it overshoots is not correct.
*always set arrival time to avoid these shockers

Today at Bondi Junction, SD to Atarmon and got the following jobs-
Wollstonecraft to Milsons Point
Milsons Point to York St City
Market st City to Lilyfield
Lilyfield to Canada Bay.
Each time it said “job towards your destination”
WTF?

I’ve had a few jobs whilst using SD trips in Uber, but have NEVER got a ping while using it on Ola.

Has anybody had a Ola SD ride??
