    I am currently investigating a minor issue that i have found in HTC Sense. It seems that whenever i dock my Evo into my HTC car kit. I am able to view the dialer and music player in landscape mode, only when docked. But as you can see.. It appears that this a bug.

    I am not rooted
    Firmware version: 3.29.651.5

    Earlier today, i had one of my first in-call conversations with HTC, regarding this issue. They have assured me that they are looking to into is.

    Music player - Album art and background image is not displayed.

    Im a little confused. So you are saying that you want to be able to view in landscape mode while not docked? Or are you saying that when its docked something is broken.

    I can kind of see why they kept the phone-ish functions in portrait mode and the obvious reason why they allowed it to go landscape when docked. It must be a root function of sense because I am on Google's car panel and it also lets me view them in landscape when docked.

    Edit: I also added a link to Calendar/Clock/etc (you can add buttons in the most recent google car panel) and everything would allow it to appear in landscape when docked. It must be a very deliberate thing by HTC.

    I am saying that the two issues that i have pointed out only occurs when docked. Something triggered for those applications to go into landscape mode, which they shouldn't at all. My only interest is finding out why it is capable of doing so.

    HTC has conformed that it should not work in landscape mode. Which makes sense. HTC did not intensionally develop a lot of their Sense applications/UI to work in landscape mode. But for some reason my Evo can, when docked.
