I’m a new(ish) driver and I could use a tip.
I am deathly scared of deviating from the suggested route displayed on the Uber GPS. I’m afraid of messing up the upfront pricing. I’m afraid of fares changing inadvertently (and customers being mad). I do get riders who request dropoffs be changed, but I double and triple check with them and warn them of the potential fare changes (almost to a fault).
I never use another GPS like Google or Waze (as many other drivers suggest), but I’m afraid the customer will see different routes than what they’re seeing in their Uber app.
Are my worrries warranted?
