I am using the address field type, but i would like to hide all sub-fields associated with the main field type except for address line 1 and address line 2.  

The reason for this is, i want to force users to enter gps co-ordinates into the 2 fields instead of address details.  This is for better and more accurate location positioning of address details

How about a simple form rule.

In Add Edit mode show two new fields called Lat and Long.

In View mode show the address field.

Form Rule,

When the record is saved

Change the value of Address : Street 1 to the value in the field Lat.

Change the value of Address : Street 2 to the value in the field Long.
