Mount phone off the DRIVER SIDE WINDOW - to the right of and slightly below mirror. Pax cant see jack, also no bogus fines possible from any nitpicky jurisdictions.I know many say not to do UberPool or else live with consequences, etc. Well, that aside, I dislike ability of second Pooler still in my car (sometimes in my front seat) to have a view of my private rating of first Pooler recently departing my car. Invariably, I tend then to rate first one 5 stars even if I felt like giving less because I don't want spying second Pooler (possibly spying or possibly doesn't care) to see me give low rating to his pool chat buddy. Second Pooler then could spite me by giving me a low rating as well for being what he might feel was a harsh rating to the first Pooler.
Maybe I overthink this stuff. I have learned from this forum recently of the ability to re-enter the system to adjust my rating of a rider but I haven't tried it yet. Perhaps I also could remove my phone for a second from the mount and tip it in my hand for privacy while rating.
Just one of those nuisance issues I've considered in UberPool but hadn't remembered until now to bring to this complaint forum. I haven't seen another thread yet on this topic so thought I'd seek comment if anyone else has felt the same way.
Also hides it from most viewing angles from the outside of vehicle, especially if tinted. And phone is right next to corner vent, keeping it cool.
And lets you open door when parked and waiting for pings, to stretch out/smoke/etc with phone always in reach
PS just splurge on a beefy 6-9 ft charge cord andalways always WRAP/TIE IT AROUND MOUNT BASE (so it cant catch and pull your phone off mount or tear out your charge port when opening door)...also route cable UNDER FLOOR MAT. NEAR SEAT (not thr pedals lol)
