So far, Yelp is a flop.
Agreed.
I thought Bing was a piece of junk, but Yelp has exceeded those low standards.

I strongly suspect that businesses who want to appear on Yelp must have to pay, as trying to find local restaurants just coughs up ones I can't stand, and won't bring up ones within as close as 1-2 blocks.

I want Google Maps, please...

Re: Yelp is Here on Uconnect

I concur, Yelp's data base leaves much to be desired. The POIs in the nav have more information. Kind of a waste of bandwidth.

Re: Yelp is Here on Uconnect

I wonder why they switched to Yelp? Who makes these stupid decisions? But no doubt it had something to do with the almighty dollar.

Re: Yelp is Here on Uconnect

I just tried Yelp. Under restaurants it listed a local butcher shop. Since you have to take the meat home and cook it, they should have listed my address as well.

Re: Yelp is Here on Uconnect

I tried Yelp on my Android and I got a lot of Restaurants, Motels, Drugstores, etc. for my area. I don't understand why the Jeep version retrieves nearly nothing.

Re: Yelp is Here on Uconnect

Tried using Yelp to locate the Cherry Cricket restaurant/tavern in Denver tonight. My wife and I were laughing at how horrible Yelp is/was. We tried for 20 minutes using any combination of words we could think of while driving from the Denver airport. It would have made a great SNL skit.

A few minutes into the fruitless search, I picked up my iPhone, pushed the home button, and asked Siri to find the Cherry Cricket. Within 30 seconds, I not only had the address, but I was also receiving turn by turn directions to the destination from my iPhone.

Yelp is pitiful in comparison. Even when we were two blocks away, it still did not return the Cherry Cricket in the results. The Cherry Cricket has plenty of reviews on Yelp when browsing the internet.

BTW, the burgers were awesome!

Re: Yelp is Here on Uconnect

Yelp certainly seems to have many black holes in the database it makes available to Uconnect. I might look at it in a few months to see if they start filling in the gaps, but right now it's a useless waste of time.

I agree, Problem is this decision was made in a boardroom. I can see how on paper the search looks like it make more sense because Yelp has a lot of reviews and comments attached to hotels etc. However, this is not in all areas and the physical places just are not all there.

Just an example of "seemed like a good idea at the time"... As there does still seem to be a lot of things on the move with the updates etc, I would hope the problem is rectified either through them seeing the complaints and adjusting Yelp or moving to a different provider. Here is hoping

Did you try typing it in as a point of interest on the navigation screen?

Re: Yelp is Here on Uconnect

Seems SiriusXM Travel Link does a better job with fuel prices. Too bad there isn't a restaurant button.
