Uber Drivers Beware of the Ides of March...I Mean the Golden Glades Interchange. By Geniusofdespair

Only in Miami would a driver be faced with a screen like this on their navigation device. Talk about having to take your eyes off the road to figure out where you are going: This is it! So Uber drivers when approaching the Golden Glades Interchange: DON'T LOOK AT THE SCREEN. JUST LISTEN CAREFULLY TO THE NAVIGATION DIRECTIONS.

Not so long ago I had an Uber experience with the Golden Glades interchange. I was driving southbound US 95, and there was so much traffic Uber instructed me to get off the highway to take street roads around the interchange. Fair enough. Uber is never wrong, right? The problem was that either that the signal dropped right there or there were so many Uber users scrambling around the impassible traffic jam that Uber kept rebooting the route. Every time it rebooted, it created a different route, then rebooted and sent me back to the first or second route. Finally I just headed south by whatever side road I could find and eventually found my way back onto 95 south a few miles away. "Golden Glades Interchange Defeats Uber" should be a Miami Herald headline.

I wonder what navigation application you use specifically. Does Uber give you any option to choose between different mapping applications?
I find that area treacherous for navigation.
