    Hi. Although I have been using a Droid since the Droid one (actually, not sure how I lived before getting this first smartphone for myself), I just picked up the Bionic. Actually, had to as there is no more support of the Droid 1...and it was slow as molasses and WAY running out of memory.

    I am totally enthralled with the Bionic so far. Fast; easy to read, etc. As a behavioral health professional, I want to be sure I am able to get the most out of this smartphone, so I will regularly peruse the list, and ask questions. The first is:

    When the phone is in the car dock, and either on maps or navigate, and I turn it so it is vertical in the dock (rather than horizontal), I find the orientation of the map does not change. Always stays in landscape mode. If not in the car dock, the orientation for whatever screen I am on (including maps, etc) switches nicely for however I am holding the phone. Any thoughts about this?

    Welcome to the community and congrats on the Bionic. As for the problem it seems that the bionic is almost sensing the car dock. Wish I could help out more on this but I don't use a car dock and this is the first I've heard of this but I could offer the welcome
