Can any current owners tell if the Kaiser works the same way?
Thanks in advance.
The answer is yes it does use a magnet operated switch.
BUT - the Kaiser rotates the screen much much faster than the TyTn and so even if you use a magnet to rotate the screen it instantly goes back when you take away the magnet. In fact I carry mine in a Hermes magnetic case and not once have I seen it in the wrong orientation.
