Default Escort Live, Android 8.1 Headunit - Landscape mode menu access

I have a Seicane head unit installed. It's running Android 8.1. I'ts always in landscape mode (makes sense for the unit) and I cannot seem to force portriat.

I'm trying to get to the 'devices' menu so that I can pair my max360, but the menu does not show in landscape mode.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Anybody? I really hate to get taken down by something this stupid. It's one of my pet peeves as a 25 year software developer ...

You’ve had this question out there. I wish I could help. I am not too familiar with your setup. But please give me a few hours. I am going to try and get an answer for you. Sorry you’re having trouble.

Hi madhtr.

Much of Escort is presently locked-down owing to the Coronavirus. Essential services remain available by phone because many employees are working from home. However, because Support doesn't monitor this forum, I suggest that you call Escort directly.

800-543-1608, option 2, M-F, during business hours.

Ok I checked on this. There is no orientation settings on the Escort Live App. The App relies on the devices settings for orientation. I recommend that you contact the manufacturer for your product to ask about orientation and if that can be changed.


Good luck!

Yup my Android Phone is the same way. In Landscape mode there is no way to access the menu. I have to take it out of the magnetic mount and turn it into portrait mode to access the menu.

Interesting. That would be a good thing to put on the wish list for Android Users to have this options in both orientations.
