    When using the navigation I would like to be able to easily start the voice search. But when I click on the search bar, the keyboard slides up and cover the "microphone" icon.

    Only happens in landscape mode but when the phone is in the car dock it is in landscape mode.

    Is there any way to prevent the keyboard from appearing or another single touch way to start a voice search. Obviously I don't want to click multiple buttons while driving.

    TIA
