Sorry for duplicates. I suck at tech. Am I the only one that absolutely loathes the new nav in gryft. It doesnt show the whole route sometimes no addrress but worst of all it sends you the most circuitious ineffecient way 90% of the time. Has gryft fired the A B an C teams an are now having the D squad run the show? Its adding a frustration factor too my day that is completely irking. Anyone have suggestions?

So why would you ever use on board navigation when Uber and Lyft allow you to hook in a real app from the settings? I prefer Waze. Honestly the few Ubers I’ve taken the drivers didn’t know you could change it. Since they were missing turns I filled them in and they seemed surprised, grateful even, and a few had gotten the impression it wouldn’t let them till I showed them how.

Stop driving for Lyft.
Not able too at the moment as Guber has sidelined me for 3 weeks now because of my background. Once they clear me I will stop. You know tge challenges we face if youve been at this awhile. Guess my 7th background was the magic number. Its total BS as it is completely unchanged.

Link Uber and Lyft to a third party navigation app. I use Google Maps. If you have that or Waze downloaded to your phone just go into your settings and then click on navigation and choose to use your third party app.
Lyft>menu (3 lines top left corner)>Account>Settings>Navigation

I despise Waze so it's Google Maps for me.
