Expert tips

Here are a few other tips offered by Uber driver-partners and riders that you might find helpful.

  • Use the app to contact a rider

    Accepted a trip but can’t find your rider? The app lets you call or send a text to them.

  • Do a quick name check

    When your rider gets in the car, ask their name to make sure you’ve got the right person.

  • Tap the map

    Anytime you want to see an overview of the whole route, you can tap the map to zoom out.

  • Navigate with your favorite app

    Your Driver app has a built-in map and directions, but you can also navigate with other apps while driving with Uber.

    To set your preferred navigation app, tap your profile picture in the upper right corner. Then tap Account, App Settings, and Navigation.
