Hotspots in the Dasher App (the flame icon on the map) are dynamic, meaning that they change based on where deliveries are being ordered in real time!
Based on Dasher feedback, we only show hotspots when we believe they are helpful and nearby to help you earn more money. The hotspot we show you on the map is the one closest to you, but you can always tap on “Show More” to see others a bit further away.
The new Hotspot is shown to help you understand what areas are most popular right now. While traveling to a Hotspot does not guarantee that you will receive a delivery in that area, in general it should increase your chances of receiving a nearby delivery.
