There are two ways to change your location on the map. By dragging the position of the thumbnail icon or by entering the address of the location.
1.1 Change the position by dragging the thumbnail icon
You can change your position on the map by putting your finger on the thumbnail icon and dragging it on the map. On the top of the screen in the centre, you will see the current address of the selected location.
1.2 Change location by entering the address
Click on the magnifying glass icon located in the search box on the top of the screen. Type in the address (place of arrival) and select the option that corresponds to the location where you want your HOPIN Taxi to pick you up. After choosing the desired address, the thumbnail icon on the map will move to that address.
If your HOPIN app is displaying a GPS position that is different from your actual location, we recommend that you test your GPS location in another application (such as Google Maps) and compare the position. If the GPS position is inaccurate in both applications, your device has poor GPS reception, what means that your device is working with some previous GPS position or your GPS position was obtained from a locational service that is inaccurate.
If that is the case, we recommend that you check the GPS position settings on your device and either set it to high-accuracy or turn on all options that enhance the GPS position of your device.
Many factors influence the accuracy of your GPS position such as weather, the quality of GPS reception on your device, whether you are in the building or outside and other interferences.
The ideal conditions are when you create your order outdoors in good weather. If you create your order while you are inside of a building, you should always make sure the position displayed within your HOPIN app is correct. If it is not, you need to change it manually.
By signing up, you create your profile, where all your preferences and settings, such as favourite drivers and favourite addresses are saved. You can sign into any other device using your profile and get the same settings and preferences.
Registration is also required if you want to use a non-cash payment (card payment), you can add individual payment cards to your profile.
HOPIN uses hosted payment system from TATRA BANKA that adheres to highest payment card security industry standards. We do not store, process or transmit your credit card information.

With a non-cash way of payment, you do not pay for your ride with cash. Instead, the amount will be withdrawn directly from your card. To do this, you must add a credit/debit card to your HOPIN profile.
To learn how to add a card, read the “How do I add a credit card to my profile” question.
Adding a credit/debit to your profile will enable you to use the non-cash payment method.
INFO: You can only add a credit card if you are signed in to your customer profile. (see “How do I sign up / log in?”)

In the “Online card payment” section, fill out all the necessary information about your payment card, such as “Your card number”, “Card validity” and “CV”. To complete the registration, you need to click on the blue “Submit EUR 0.10” button at the bottom. A € 0.10 transaction is required to verify your credit card.
INFO: The withdrawn amount of € 0.10 will be refunded to you by the bank.
You will be informed when your card is successfully verified. If the verification of your payment card fails, please check if you filled in the correct data. Once you close this window, you will be redirected back to your HOPIN application.

When using HOPIN, the most significant power consumption comes from acquiring your GPS location. So, when you are not using HOPIN, shut the application down along with your device’s GPS. The application shuts down by clicking the “BACK” button on your device. Turn off the GPS module in your device’s settings.
Please check that all the filters (“Ride preferences”) are turned off. They can be found in the Menu (icon with four horizontal lines) at the top right of the screen. It may be that you have turned on filters that only a few taxi drivers meet, and they are at the moment too far from you, to accept the order.
Also, after creating the order, please do not delete the search right away (after a few seconds) to give the system a chance to reach more drivers and thus increase the chances that the order will be accepted by one of them.

After you turn on the app, enter the starting point and destination (required) fields, click on the yellow circle icon with the black arrow located at the bottom of the screen in the centre.
