Default Navipanel

I have found the tip to access Navipanel without the dock. A couple of questions:
  1. It seems that Navipanel can only be used in landscape mode - is this right because I tend to have my phone docked in portrait mode?
  2. How do I exit Navipanel once I have finished with it?

Thanks,

James

6. Enable NaviPanel Without Owning the Car Kit/Navigation Dock
Go to Windows folder and copy NaviPanel.exe as a shortcut to Windows\Start Menu folder.
I don't have the navipanel.exe in the windows folder so I cannot copy it anywhere.

That's a bit strange... Are you absolutely certain?

You must use Resco Explorer (AND switch off in setting of resco "Hide hidden files", Hide files in Rom") !

I just wanted to post that RescoExplorer doesn't show hidden files by default. I found it with total commander and then thought it might be an option like that in Resco.

Thanks guys.

1. Couldn't swear to it, but I think I remember seeing pictures or video of the panel in both landscape and portrait orientations

2. Press the Home key - the panel doesn't appear to stay resident in memory - haven't checked this with Memmaid or anything yet, but it certainly doesn't appear in Task Manager (Dutty's version)

A far bigger pain is that all of the links seem hard coded to a Co-Pilot install on the device, as opposed to one on the SD Card - iyt would be nice to be able to customise it!

Hi Gustopher - Thanks. It seems Navipanel starts in landscape and then if it feels like it rotates to portrait. This only seems to happen occassionally which is very frustrating because the most common case it that it is stuck in landscape mode. Does anyone know of a way of starting Navipanel in portrait mode?

To be honest all I want to achieve is to switch the phone to a mode where when I answer calls they automatically go to speaker phone and ideally for screen lock to be switched off. This must be a common use case for people who have their phone docked in a car. Anyone know of how this can be achieved using something other than Navipanel?

Many thanks,

James
