Disabling Destination when Requesting Uber

Is there a way to disable to option to enter a destination when requesting an Uber through the API. Part of my app involves surprising the user with the location they are heading to, and having the destination field available might ruin that experience.

Is it possible to request the Uber without entering a destination? I know in the native app that is possible. Thanks!

    Nitin- Since the "Request" endpoint is essentially placing the Uber experience in your own app, you control what you show in your app. So essentially if you wanted to mask designation and not show it you would be able to since it's your interface. However, if the user opens their Uber app, essentially they can see where they are going because the app would be linked to their account. Hope that helps.
