Great App so far, but i got a few questions...

When i start my navigation app (Navigon) and go back to the dashboard homescreen to make a call or something and then wanna go back to the Navigation screen by pressing the navi icon, Navigon restarts itself instead of bringing me back to the running navigation.
How can i prevent it?

Another thing: some of my shortcuts doesn't show up in the shortcut window after selecting. They're going to the phone homescreen instead

Can you please take a look at these issues??

otherwise a nice app!!

Car Dashdroid
Zen,
This looks like a nice app. I noticed that because I do not have a Car dock the app locks in one orientation. It needs to be unlocked for any orientation. I also noticed that startup seems a little slow but you did state that it is in Beta. Fix the orientation and I will start using it. Thanks!

i will try fix the navigon issue with a intent to not restart (should work in the way its working but weird) about shortcuts its difficult because the developer of the shortcuts explicit put the icon in the home screen perhaps i will try to see if i can do anything, wich apps you had this problem?

it happens with the shortcuts of screen standby. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1934495

another thing i noticed... i'm not able to place the widget of your app on my homescreen, if i try a window opens, saying the app is not installed.

I would be very grateful if you could iron out those issues

oh, and a little suggestion... is it possible to implement some media shortcuts (play/pause, skip tracks)? that would be awesome!
