    Phone is awesome; got the GPS dock and it works great however the map orientation isn't correct. It seems to always be in the north-south and instead of showing you streets coming up to where you are located it is upside down, or worse shows you going left instead of right.

    I've looked everywhere on the phone and haven't been able to find a setting to orientate the map in the direction of travel (like a normal gps)

    Perhaps it does this in navigation mode? Going to try that out in a bit.

    Any help or thoughts would be great

    Thanks!!

    In the Maps App you will see a little compass icon on the top right of your screen. Tapping it will center the map on your current location. Tapping it again will rotate the map to the arrow points in the direction you are moving.

    Nav is this way as well. You can choose between having the map point towards north always or point in your direction of travel.
