The GoGoRoad application allows customers to enter the service address by entering information in fields or selecting the location from a map. To customize the user experience by channel, the UI consultant has requested the following functionality: Users on a non-mobile device use the fields to enter the service address. Users on a mobile device select the location from a map. Configure the Identify location form to hide the redundant content depending on the device that is in use.

The following table provides the credentials you need to complete the challenge.
