    When I reserve a drive, the app asks for the destination but I'm only allowed to write an address it seems, is there a way to pinpoint your destination on the map similarly to how you pinpoint the pickup location?

    This is very important because in some countries in Middle East (such as Saudi Arabia) where Uber is available, there are no precise addresses like in Europe or US and in some cases it's just impossible to find a destination by written address, whereas I could easily pinpoint it...

    I can't speak "officially" for Uber, nor is this forum authorized by Uber (and no, I am not an employee of Uber or "plant," on this or any other forum, and other than a contractor/driver and occasional passenger/customer, I have absolutely no affiliation with Uber) but here's my $.02....
    To be honest, I don't know if you can pinpoint your destination. I don't know about the middle east, but here, passengers don't have to enter a destination (guessing maybe 1/3 of my trips, the passenger doesn't enter destination); you obviously need to have one entered if you're wanting a fare estimate or something of that nature. If you're able to provide directions, that should keep your driver happy.

    Thanks, that seems like a reasonable way.. to be honest I always placed a destination, but you're right it isn't necessary to actually get in the car and I can then check with the driver and give the direction..

    I'll give it a try! as always the simplest solution is probably the best... thanks!
