With V2.77, TomTom starts in whatever orientation the phone is in at the time (and if it's portrait, I can only change to landscape by exiting TomTom, rotating the phone to landscape, and then restarting TomTom - which is a pain).

Just to let everybody know that the problem I have been having with TomTom has resolved itself - it now always starts in Landscape regardless of the orientation of the phone. Not sure why it didn't before (perhaps I hadn't waited long enough, or it needed a soft reset?)

This usually happens if i get a text/incoming call and I turned off the screen while it's still in landscape mode. Not a big issue. Works great otherwise. Thanks!

I've had that happen to me too when I briefly used S2U2. I'll try to find time to install it again and determine why that happens. In the meantime, if you can pinpoint exactly when it happens please pass it along to me so I can fix it. It may however be an issue with S2U2 - which means that theres nothing I can do. Regardless... let me know. Thanks!

I've found out how to replicate it.

Basically it happens if any app is not in portrait and I turn the screen off.
So when I turn it back on, S2U2 will start up (as expected). Then when I slide to unlock, it will do so but right after it unlocks it will lock again.

I'll look into it asap & get back to you. Thanks for doing the research!

Does this only happen with Tomtom or with other apps as well?

I have noticed it only with tomtom and with the game nfs undercover.
I have also noticed that, if I launch tomtom with the phone in landscape it works fine.

It happens also with Opera or Klaxon, after the direction is changed, windows taskbar will appear. Both are the full screen applications.

Prevent rotation while sleeping?
Hi folks - I have a sideways holster and find it annoying when I wake the phone up and it's landscape after being asleep in the holster. Any way to disable the rotation sensor while sleeping?
