As an Uber/Lyft driver it's the most reliable navigation tool you could possibly have. It saves time and makes passenger pick ups easier than other navigation apps. The only downside is when there are passengers under a freeway or underpass, the app is confused and thinks the person is on the freeway. If this could be fixed Google Maps would definitely be a perfect 10.
Before now, you could tap the sceen to make all of the buttons and interface options disappear and it would just show the plain map. For some reason it seems that's been removed so the interface is permanently displayed. Why remove a feature that worked perfectly fine?
This app has become too clumsy and congested from a UX perspective. The default cards opening covers 50% of the screen. By default it should be closed so that we can see the map full-screen. Also, maybe improve the compass calibration settings. Alternatively you can release a lite version of this app, just for navigation and basic usage, without too many bells and whistles.
Most recently it no longer tells you what road to make next turn on, simply turn left in 500 ft... I don't stare at the map while driving. I shouldn't have to. I preferred when it told you actual directions. Accuracy is fine but this makes me want to look at other aps.
The blue dot issue has been irritating and for a while now. I remember earlier when we would enter navigation mode, it would automatically start off with the Arrow head but now it starts off with a blue dot. And it stays that way for a considerable amount of time making the initial navigation very difficult!
It does everything good but when navigating, where it shows the ETA and direction. We used to click that and it expanded to all the directions. Now it opens up more option and then you have to select "direction", not safe while driving to be looking at your screen for this long
