    Went out for a bit today, first day using the new app. Something happened and I’m a bit freaked out about it. Got a ping, pick up at a place I know well and hit nav (just because I like to see which asinine way Google will suggest) flipped back to Uber app and I’ll be damned, Uber in app nav...

    I know this has been periodically mentioned in other threads but wanted something to really help evaluate what works best in different situations. I finally downloaded Waze in March and since then have been comparing them head to head since. I use Google for Uber but do a lot of driving for my...

    So, I am new. It has been rough already. But, I think I got this. I had to cancel my official 2nd trip because I am having problems with the Uber app GPS. I am 100% confident google maps works perfect. For some reason this Uber app is glitch. I am sure if I keep canceling they will...

    This navigation is the worst i have seen.It doesn't' show how many miles to your destination or the time. Also it has a big blue line that looks stupid.

    Anyone tried the Uber in-app navigator. It took me to down the wrong road twice. Its getting closer to the Pin but not the right road. I had a Overton address (at the publix) coming up Crosshaven dr. It told me to turn down Crowne Ridge Dr. it navigated around buildings and to the back of the...

    Just got the email about how Uber Navigation is SO much better and even more convenient!! Since they have changed every other thing on the app to make it worse, i.e. address (gone or disappearing), map (gone or disappearing), profits (gone or disappearing), why shouldn't I trust them to do this...

    Looks like Google is turning the world streets into pacman this weekend for April Fools. Great way to kill te this weekend.

    What Navigation problems have you had and what did you do to "fix" them? Most drivers use either Waze or Google Maps in addition to the navigation provided by the driver-App. They have many similar problems and others unique to one App. I primarily use Waze and consistently have 3 problems...

    I broke my rule and picked up UberPOO yesterday. NEVER AGAIN!!! I accepted and picked up UberPOO 1 after another. So now I have 2 pax in my car. Just dropped one pax and ABOUT to drop off the other pax, so I can RELIEVE myself(Emergency/Mother Nature Calling). However, about 5 minutes before...

    I'm wondering if there is a way to play music from my phone (Pandora via Bluetooth) to my cars audio system while listening to navigation directions (via Bluetooth) through my ear piece, without the directions being heard over the cars audio. I'd like to do this so the passenger doesn't have to...

    My UBER app has a new and "improved" navigation system that gave me all kinds of aggravation last night. I usually drive w Waze and usually spot on. Now Waze does not have an exact address, a range of house numbers is displayed on both Waze and UBER app, so even though it says I've arrived ...

    What's the best app to use in Edmonton. I've been using Google but I'm not all that happy with it. It doesn't seem to be as accurate as it should. I had one fare tell me that one of her drivers was using one that started with an N but she couldn't remember the name. I did a search but the one I...

    Usually I don't accept Pool rides, but few days ago I brought a passenger to pretty remote spot and after waiting for 30 min I decided to take a Pool call. Well, I figured it out that the destination is about 30 miles away (which is good). As Pool ride doesn't allowed to call a navigation app, I...

    For anyone unfamiliar, Grant is a one way street traveling from East to West. While heading north on Geary St., Uber directed me to turn right (West) on this one way street that only travels East. Later they navigated me to turn right on Gough. Only problem is Gough was actually Market St...
