You know the moment: Your passenger just hopped in the car, and you’re only a few taps away from the perfect ride. But let’s back up a minute — those few taps can make a big difference. Whether you’re accepting rides, navigating to drop-off locations, or handling mid-ride route changes, even a few taps can make it harder for you to focus on the road.
We’re excited to announce a new remedy for smoother rides: Lyft Navigation, featuring GPS and directions from Google Maps. It’s rolling out in the next month, right inside Lyft Driver, so everything you need is in your app.
If you’re an Android user, Lyft Navigation will be turned on in Lyft Driver soon. iOS users, stay tuned!
And remember — you pick which navigation works for you. Waze navigation is still available. You can always update your preference by tapping ‘Settings’ > ‘Navigation’.
We know that when you’re in the driver’s seat, small hiccups can cause big problems, so we’re always working to improve your app experience.
