Default Love YELP but not in the truck.

After the truck was sitting at the airport for a week. (vacation) I notices I have Yelp. It's a great app on your phone for places to eat, but it sucks in the truck...

Using the Nav it was so easy to use BING for a quick address to a place, but yelp doesn't recognize crap. Was trying to find a dealership for an oil change and BING used to work great. but YELP sucked. had to hand jam the address in the NAV...

Only good news is at the dealership they ran my VIN and said I have 4 free oil changes. I had no clue the salesman never mentioned that...LOL

The salesman told me I would get 4 oil changes for free. This yelp thing is something I don't understand....

Do you have to have nav in order to have Yelp? I can not find it on my truck, just the Wifi hotspot.

That's because Yelp in the truck only shows hits if the place has been reviewed. I hope it's a bug and will be fixed soon. Pretty useless system if it won't show the unreviewed places. Mine will only find 3 Walgreen's within 10 miles of me when there are well over 20 on my phone. The 3 my Ram does find have reviews and they are the only 3 of the 20+ that do have ratings.

As a Canadian, the only way that I can get yelp on my Nav system is by typing in a bunch of strip joints or porno shops for a laugh, and then letting my wife drive my truck later and wait for her reaction!!

Awwww, the good times in life!! LOL.........

Bing & Yelp are both worthless

try finding anything on your computer using either of them

type in something like Ram truck forum & see what comes up

in your Ram truck, it won't even do that little bit

Bing worked very well with me, and was super easy to use for directions straight to the NAV. I dont use it at home but it was nice in the truck... Hands down I preferred Bing in the truck as opposed to Yelp
