More often than not, yes. In any case, there are a few provisos.

Now and then the producer discharges a broken driver. Actually, I would encourage against refreshing to a driver form that has quite recently been discharged - hold up multi day or two, if there ends up being an issue, it ought to be settled by at that point.

There is actually one source you ought to get the drivers from, and that is the gadget producer's help site. On the off chance that the webpage has been shut, give burrowing a shot a filed form in The Internet Archive's Wayback Machine, that is the following most dependable source. Just ever scan for different sources if those two don't furnish you with attractive outcomes. Never trust outsider "driver updaters", thee run from futile to outright malware.

Well, when it comes to handling the updates by either driver or the rider, it gets more complicated as the location changes every now and then. According to data from Uber, it has been found that over 2 million drivers operate globally and around 7,50,000 in the United States alone. Though there is separate app for both passengers and the drives, its always a critical task to manage the location updates to both of them on the same time.

Also, the Uber Driver cannot able to see the location that he is receiving the request from unless he accepts the request. He can be able to see just the kind of request that he is receiving and not the location that from where he is receiving the request. Though it’s a critical process to update the locations for both the passengers and the drivers at the same time. Uber works well on the technical side and did in a apt way to send the updates to both the driver and the passenger at the same time without any hustle. Uber deisgned its application to handle millions of requests at the same time.
