    I have looked through all the posts on the forum and I'm curious about car home. When you are docked in car home with the car mount for the droid the phone screen when a call is in progress does not rotate to landscape mode; so basically everything is sideways instead of facing up and down. Will we only be able to make this possible in a custom rom or is there a way to do this now?

    I'm sure that is all possible. Perhaps instead of trying to squish everything top to bottom, you can still have things orient horizontally but left to right.

    phone calls are always in portrait orientation, no matter what application or orientation that you're in. someone will either need to release a new phone app, or google will have to make a change.

    I'm sure it wouldn't be too much work for a decent programmer to make a second "landscape" version of the phone app and run a conditional statement when launching, but I think that is still a little ways down the road.

    ok

    Yeah i was just wondering is all... maybe somebody will see this here and decide to do it. It would be great and I like the above post about not cutting everything off but just orienting everything on the screen from left to right. I don't know how to code or anything but I wish I did.
