Your driver app has built-in GPS navigation. Features like Auto-Navigate, Route Preview, Night Mode, Lane Guidance, and On Route Traffic were created to make it more simple to navigate along your route.
Some features may not be available in all cities and on all devices. If they're available for you, they'll be in your in-app navigation.
Auto-Navigate provides turn-by-turn navigation along your route. It starts up as soon as the trip has begun without any action from you.
To turn Auto-Navigate off:
1. Select ACCOUNT in the Uber app
2. Tap SETTINGS > NAVIGATION > AUTO-NAVIGATE
3. Switch AUTO-NAVIGATE to OFF
Route Preview gives you a quick look at your next trip before the navigation begins. Note: Route Preview may not be available on all devices.
Night Mode changes the color of your screen at night to make the display easier on your eyes. It turns on automatically if you are online at night. This feature may not be available on all devices.
To turn change your Night Mode settings:
1. Tap the profile photo in the upper right corner
2. Select "Account" from the top menu
3. Select "App settings"
4. Tap "Night Mode"
5. Choose "Automatic," "Always on," or "Always off"
Lane Guidance tells you what the best lane is for your route before you make the turn.
ON ROUTE TRAFFIC
On Route Traffic shows you the traffic along your route. Yellow means there is some traffic and red means traffic is heavy.
