Uber tends to place the pin at the rear entrance of most addresses. Savvy riders place the pin advantageously. Autofill by GPS pins the nearest roadway (not necessarily an entrance or exit). Personally I think the pin should be assigned to a person and not a place. The person and the device are the pin. Track the device by GPS. That way if you go to the pin, you go to the rider. Every time. Thanks for your upvote.
All you clever drivers, any ideas on how to make the connection/pickup process smoother or more foolproof?

Video te ego audiam vos ego sentio tibi. - Cat herder - Uber/Lyft 3000 rides
I have been a ride share driver for almost three years. While I like the ride share concept, I truly hate it's implementation and the way Uber and Lyft have so little regard for their work force. I am for the little guy. I seek to right injustice and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. It's usually the ones you find hardest to love that need it the most. Please enjoy my opinion and if you like (or even if you just welcome the effort), an upvote is a digital pat on the back and is most appreciated. I invite you to read my other comments and upvote them as well. Thanks
