Default App running in landscape mode

I posted to the feature request sticky, but wanted to call out the hope for a landscape mode for the app.

I hear this feature is being discussed, but I hope it is reviewed very seriously. There is a growing segment of owners that have android displays, screens or headunits in our cars, and the VAST majority run in landscape mode. I have a 10.25inch display in my BMW F32, that is also an android 9.X system. The app installs and runs just fine, but because the app is cut off at the top running in landscape mode, I am unable to get to any of the controls or connect the detectors.

This should, I am assuming, is a relatively easy detect switch to add to the app as so many applications can handle this portrait to landscape mode switch, and hope that the app here can be updated.

This is the "killer" app I have been waiting for with my display and PLEASE consider adding this functionality.

Thank you!

The current app for Android and iOS works in bot portrait and landscape mode. When I'm driving, I typically use landscape.

Correct, the application will RUN in landscape mode, but it does not reconfigure the layout to recognize it is in that mode.

The top drop downs are not available. I can demo this 100% of the time on my Samsung s10+ if I flip sideways, or on my in car display that is ALWAYS landscape.

the top green bar is there, but you cant the top controls of the triple has (upper left), MAP/Dashboard selector and anything on that top bar.

Support acknowledged that this is the case as well, and encouraged me to post here to help raise this to the DEVs attention.

What version are you running, The current version is v3.1.11, and it should be automatically switching between landscape mode and portrait mode.

I am running v3.1.11 and it does switch automatically, but in landscape mode it cuts off the top of the screen. It doesn't reformat the resolution properly, so the top of the app is cut off. The green pull down bar is the very top of the screen, nothing above it.

I have spoken with support 3 times about this, and they acknowledge landscape mode formatting is an issue.

Fantastic thank you! If you could see the app running on my 10.25 display in my F32, you would be amazed.. this really is that "killer app" I have been waiting for, with that system.
