You're not finding the places you know that are there because the Ram version of Yelp is crippled (whether intentionally or by accident is anyone's guess). It only shows results if the place has been rated. I think it is by accident since there are optional buttons to filter by distance, rating or relevance just like my smart phone app has, they just don't work the same (distance & rating produce the same results in the same order).

Yelp sucks and Chrysler finally responded to my email just to tell me I need to call uconnect with my question. No answer what so ever and not even an email address. I guess uconnect hasn't figured out how to use email yet either....

The yelp thing really irritates me and I just can't understand it.

Here's the reply in full.

"The best resource for your question is the uConnect Care department, we
recommend you contact them at:

1-855-792-4241.

Thanks again for your email.

Sincerely,

Christopher"


Let's all call them I guess and complain since they don't have an email address.

I just got off the phone with UConnect. They told me that Yelp, along with the rest of the apps are cellular-based. This means that they use Sprint service to access programs such as Yelp.
Guess what? There is no Sprint service in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. So that means that UConnect is pretty much useless in our area. If you look at the map, Sprint had almost no coverage in the entire Northern Michigan area. Wow!!! No wonder my Yelp couldn't find anything. I was very polite and offered suggestions, and the guy assured me that my complaints would be forwarded on to the appropriate folks.
So if you don't have Sprint in your area, you are screwed.

I have sprint in my area but yelp still sucks and can't find anything. I don't even think it found my local Walmart even though its one of if not the biggest Walmart on the east coast. I've searched for fast food restraunts by name and it would find one 45 minutes away when its just 2 minutes away.

Maybe a petition to bring bing back is in order? I'm going on vacation in a couple weeks and I was planing to use the bing app to find things around where I'm staying in TN. Now I can't trust the yelp app at all and its just a waste of memory on the radio.

All anyone has to do to get your Ram's Yelp to find local places that you know are close to home is rate the business. Unfortunately if you don't know about the place because you're not close to home you're pretty much screwed unless you have an alternate way to find it.

I called 1-855-792-4241. I think if enough complaints are registered, then some changes will happen. No way I am paying for this service after my free year is up if Yelp and Sprint are part of the equation.

YELP has a filtering process & it sucks
several times someone is paid for a review

if a business has a rating of 3 out of 5, it may make YELPS listing
