    As many of you know the Home screen does not change when going into landscape. In Froyo there is landscape for the home screen when in Car dock mode. Will there be a way to force car dock mode when going into landscape. Maybe an app that can solve this.

    There's a "Car" widget that will cover this for you. No worries, mate.

    I want it to automatically go into landscape and show a converted home page. I'm not familiar with widget's since this will be my first smartphone. Will just hitting that icon switch everything around.

    There are custom roms for the hero that do this. So worse case is once we have root access I'm sure someone will cook something up with this capability.

    Well, it won't - not with Sense, anyway. The Droid will...but not ours. So, keep the widget on your home screen, and right before you plug it into the dock click the widget and away you go. A 1/10 of a second minor inconvenience. You'll survive.
