    O-k, I've been reading a bunch and have found this forum to be a great resource! I just purchased [FONT=&quot]Seidio CK17MTDDC03 Innotraveler Car Kit for Motorola Droid[/FONT][FONT=&quot] and now have it mounted in a very usable space in my car. I am using Car Dock as my docked application. I'm pretty happy with it, but one feature I find mind boggling is that when docked, the phone does not support touchscreen keypad dialing in landscape mode. This seems counter-intuitive to the reason for a car dock. Anyone figure out a way around this?. It seems crazy to have to remove it from the dock to dial a number (that is currently not in my contacts).

    Also, I know the issues with navigating with no destination, so I like to show Google maps while driving. However, this is always shown north up. Has anyone figured out a way to make this show course up?

    Thanks for your help,
