Is there any way or any plans to be able to disable the dot view screen?

Using normal rubber case with the magnet for the mountek dash mount and it continues displaying the dot view screen....

Usually for stock apps, even if it says "uninstall" it'll just uninstall the updates.

I believe it's the Dot Matrix App if you go into the App Manager. But I am unable to disable it =\

You could of course root then freeze it with TB.

Unistall Dot View on WP HTC M8
I also need to uninstall dot view. Whether it's "turned on" or not, my magnetic car holder turns it on, making it so I can't use my nav program or anything while I'm in the car unless I hold it in my hand (which defeats the purpose and is not safe). Any advice would be helpful!

The only thing I can think of is to root your phone and flash a rom that doesn't have it.

When I uncheck the "turn on HTC Dot View" from the app my screen no longer reacts to a magnet...
