request map endpoint issue

I am playing with request map endpoint. I can obtain response but href link does not work. Have anybody experienced such behavior before?

    The HREF returned from /v1/requests//map endpoint when communicating with the Sandbox is not a valid URL. For an example of what a map will look like in production, you can see an example here: https://trip.uber.com/-y-HO3YzT (this is for a completed test trip).

    Okay, it worth to mention before. Does it mean that if I am doing ios application I have to move to production api before to submit my project? I did not plan that.

    Apologies that the `/map` endpoint is not behaving the way you anticipated. You are correct that to be able to present the best hackathon demo, the application should be set to use the production environment. When you say you haven't planned on doing this, is there a specific reason why? The change in your application should be straightforward.

    Mostly because of testing. Good testing takes some time and money since I need to make real requests. So I planned to simulate behavior on application side using sandbox endpoints. Like const 5 sec to find a car, 10 s to arrive to pick up and so on.

    will the full Uber API including endpoint be still available to developers after the 17th?

    Len- Our API is public so you will still have access to it after the hackahon is over.
