Pardon my noob...
If we cannot find a address in Grab app, what can we do?

I know we can tag a nearby location. Other than this?

I was in Sarawak last week, wanting to go to customer's office. I could find the place in Google Maps, but not in Grab rider app. I though Grab uses Google Maps confused.gif

I was in Kuching quite some time ady... wanted to travel to visist "James Brook's" yard but couldn't locate it on the app as it wasn't tagged..

Have to type in the address, and use the pin to pin point the drop location.

For ulu places, you will need to be familiar with the map location, only then you can point it on the Grab app... Yes... its a hassle and non-intuitive for new users/unfamiliar users.

You are a Grab driver. You should know that Grab drivers won't drop off riders at a location different from what is tagged.
