    Horizontal Phone Call?

    I searched with no result.. does anyone know if you can use the phone in car dock/ horizontal mode?

    Its annoying to be using nav in the car dock horizontally to have phone calls come in and it switches to vertical mode while still on its side.

    THanks!

    Consider using your Car Dock in Vertical mode, IMHO it works better for Naviagtion because seeing more in front of you instead of more beside you is better on the road.

    Just a thought.

    I was able to initiate a phone call from the car dock (in horizontal mode). I just touched home then phone (like normal). The dialpad didn't show, I was driving down the freeway, so I couldn't look into this further (I will next time I'm in the car), so I just went back and clicked the "Voice Dial" icon (I put on my home screen) and said Dial x.xxx.xxxx it worked perfectly.

    Love the car dock - definitely worth it. My phone is about 2 to 2 1/2 feet from my head while in the dock. The other caller could hear my fine and the droid speaker phone sounded great.

    I have a habit of losing my bluetooth earpiece, but now I don't need one.

    ok well thanks for all the info.


    I'll try the vertical thing out next time. Now that I mention it, I can't really think of a good reason why I was obsessed to keep in horizontal.. I guess all the pictures or something.

    I love my car dock. I have an aux input on my stereo so I connect the Droid to that and when I get a call I hear it through my car speakers. Same with navigation, music, etc. I like listening to Pandora while I drive to work lol

    I also like responding to texts at red lights and whatnot. It's actually pretty easy and with it on the windshield I can see when the light turns green. Doesn't take my attention from the road at all IMO

    That will work for the Car Dock, but the Multimedia Dock has the same issue when answering calls horizontally. The problem with using the Car Dock vertically in my car is that the position of the car's power outlet puts a strain on the microUSB when it's plugged horizontally into the DROID, and I suspect that might cause some weakening of the connector over time. The plug goes in vertically when the mount is horizontal, so there is little to no strain on the connector.
