Oh, I see.  Thank you.  That was very helpful.

Yes, it is a terrible UI design by Apple on iOS.

I was going to try to do on Android similar to what had been done on 
iOS, but since this is so terrible, I'd rather not do it like that.

As I dug-into the Android code better to hard-code the address change I 
discovered - to my delight - that the app server address is stored in a 
per-car data object.  Yay!  So this is nice.  I'm going to give this 
another shot.
