    In order to view my home screen(s) in landscape I have to open the keyboard. Is there a setting to change this?

    No, that's the way Android OS works.

    Now, if you're running a home screen replacement app, then that's a different story.

    Ah well. I guess I'll have to live with it. I'm not interested in home replacement stuff,

    The home screen rotates in the car dock - so if you really like it, I suppose you could rig up a case with a magnet in the right place . . . :D

    Or download the dockrunner app. Run it then hit the home button on the top left of the screen. Cumbersome, but it works. To get back to normal home screen. hold down the normal home button and select dockrunner again.
