There was a glitch in the driver app for at least a week allowing me to see EVERY destination immediately after accepting the ping by turning off cellular data and starting the ride. Then the usual swiping off the screen twice to reset before turning on cell data. This has worked after arrival at the pickup point but for one fun cherry-picking week it worked before arrival. Unfortunately they fixed the glitch earlier today.

I don’t GAF where the trip is going. I just care that the pickup ride isn’t anymore than 10 minutes away.
Let’s apply some simple math to your logic. If you drive 10 minutes to pickup for a 5 minute ride that pays $2.62 you can do that 4 times an hour for a total of $10.48 per hour. Good luck with that plan.

That never happens multiple times in a row, but it did you’d have $10.48 like you said.......try driving 25 minutes to get a $2.62 trip............your choice obviously, all markets are different, and car positioning is important. I’ve got over 11,000 rides to date so I won’t be changing up anytime soon.

In LV, I always ask: "where you going?" Before I swipe to start ride. If I don't want to go there, I cancel.

Sometimes I will text in app, enroute, : Destination? I get a response about 25% of the time.

I really hate having to return to the Strip 18 unpaid miles while it is surging. I try to stay within about 6 miles of DT and Strip and airport.
