I am wanting to buy a Tablet (Android) to run my uber and lyft apps on. What do I need to look for or make sure it has so that I can use it instead of my phone for the uber and lyft trips? Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thank you everyone! Scottie, or anyone else piggy backing off there phones connection, (IE: tethering/hotspot etc.) do you have much problem with keeping a connection? Or issues with speed?I use a rooted LG GPad 7.0 tethered to my cellphone, and run both Lyft and Uber simultaneously. Mounted to a magnetic CD slot mount. It works pretty well. I just started driving 3 weeks ago.
There are no issues with speed on a tethered connection - Uber and Lyft work fine even on a 2g connection.Thank you everyone! Scottie, or anyone else piggy backing off there phones connection, (IE: tethering/hotspot etc.) do you have much problem with keeping a connection? Or issues with speed?
It's cheaper to probably buy one instead of fixing the screen on the 3.Thanks, ya I just couldn't seem to really find a Phablet option with Sprint. I did just locate my old Galaxy Tab 3 and that seems to be runmimg it fine. Screen is all cracked though, but its still works. Im gonna see how much a screen is and if its worth it I will buy and replace it myself
There are a few LG devices with problematic GPS units. I had a G2 cellphone which was great, except for the GPS dropouts which made it unusable for rideshare.The only real issue I have had is the LG 7.0 (at least mine) likes to lose its GPS position several times per day for upwards of 30 seconds at its worst. As mentioned previously, as long as my cell has coverage, I'm mostly good.
