According to TechCrunch, Uber is taking its driver app to the next level by integrating CarPlay support. This new integration will allow drivers to access the iPhone app from their vehicle’s dashboard display, making it easier for them to keep track of their rides and stay connected to the platform. The report states that this integration should be available for all Uber drivers in the United States by the end of the month.
Just like the iPhone app, the CarPlay version of the Uber driver app will provide a number of useful features to drivers. For example, drivers will be able to view a map of their local area that highlights areas with surge pricing, allowing them to make more informed decisions about where to drive.
Additionally, the app will provide turn-by-turn directions, so drivers can easily navigate to their next pickup location. The app will also allow drivers to view and accept trips, add rides to their queue, and check their status to see if they are currently set to online or offline.
It’s worth noting that Uber’s main competitor, Lyft, has already integrated CarPlay support into its driver app. This means that Uber is playing catch up in this area, but the integration of CarPlay support is a significant step forward and should make life easier for drivers.
