Use Waze instead of in App navigation

DiDi in-app navigation is not bad at all. Uber, worse than melway. Trying to cut corners literally to the destination. It ask me to drive through six lanes of heavy traffic instead of using the traffic lights.

If I don't know the area well, I use waze to get a sense of traffic and then ask the rider how they feel about the rout.

If they don't know, then I either just use the waze rout or the Uber suggestion - whichever seems to avoid the traffic better.

Ask them how they feel about the route with a fixed pricing lol

I use Waze even when I know the area just because I can find the shortest route to destination

I don't ask them I tell them this is the shortest way you want a different wayadd stop and then we go

Exactly or change location

Yeah... I'll trust my experience on this one, thanks. I thought the whole "Don't drive in traffic" thing would cover the fact that I only take good suggestions from riders but, yeah, some mother@@@@ers be dumb.

You keep being a dick to your riders though, only helps me out to be honest. I hear about what all the other drivers do. Makes me laugh when I pick up a 60 dollar rider after two idiots canceled their rides because they wanted the $10 slide (which I instruct them how to Contest and what to say to get their refund).

Btw my acceptance is 100% and my cancellation is at 1% coz rider didn't show... Your post is irrelevant to my post lol

Why do they need to add a stop? You can do it yourself. Run your own show, amigo.

Correct word should be rooted.:smiles:
I was gonna correct it but I'm already making enemies in 30 other threads here.

If driver changes destination doesn't always work... Plus if pax changes destination or add stops they can never go to uber and say the driver went a different way. .. As only pax can add stops and uber can see whos doing the changes ... I am running my own show . Also they will know next time

Its coz drivers like you pax say " oh the other driver/s didn't ask for this or didn't say anything...

No, I just know what the hell I'm doing. I tell the riders to rate you guys like crap though. That much is true.

Oh, it always works by the way. Most of the time, I don't even ask. If a rider asks me to go somewhere it goes into the app. This is for two reasons:

If there is a question I can see the switch and it'll remind me. Also, it makes sure I get paid correctly. Uber has every change there to review. Transparent as can be.

It also gets me a 5. Oh and I get tips - often.

If pax adds stops you still see the change ... Youll get paid the same whether you enter the destination or pax does it ... And uber still has every change to review when pax adds stops...

Yep, I'm stupid for not wasting my time explaining something, arguing a useless point, and irritating a rider, when I can just do it myself and let them chill.

Newsflash, mate: we're not colleagues.

The rider is my boss, not Uber. They pay me, therefore I make their lives as easy as possible. I'm busy all night long and have a blast. I can't help it if ya'll are salty about your trips :p
