i dumped my "civic" (RSX) for the STi. no thanks.
I had mine level, but it kept switching so I have been trying different positions. I would bet it has to do with bumps, suspension, I am driving a Jeep, so it is a pretty bumpy ride most of the time.
It does not save all your maps incase the data is lost. it saves the entire route but not the maps. What happens when data is lost in navigation is that the phone goes back to the route page and it says, "data connection lost follow route to reach destination" or something like that. so it may be data refreshing the route when it flickers.
you guys realize that each of the joints can be locked, right? have you tightened down those joints as best you can? mine are rock solid because i like to take in-car video, so the position never changes.

lol i'm just not seeing this level of vibration. are you guys off-roading or something? lol. i'll have to try this on a bumpy road for a test.
there's two joint locks. one direction behind the droid, and one on the arm.
maybe it has something to do with how mine is positioned too. i keep the suction cup to the right and the DROID to the left, so that the camera has the most optimal view of the road.
My joints are locked, but I am not experiencing anywhere near the amount of flipping that Dro is talking about in his Jeep.
Mine will just on occasion flip to portrait( I notice it most with pandora), when I whip around a corner or hit a pothole or something.
640, surely you can reproduce this in your lil rocketship.. go out and pull some g's in some bends, it will switch... make sure you have something open that will switch, like pandora. Correct me if im wrong, but it doesn't switch in video mode.
