Do you use this app mostly in portrait or landscape mode? I'm looking at vent holders and some don't rotate.

Thanks - Greg

Portrait and I use 2d maps.

I think it gives you a little more visibility on the road ahead. Sometimes I need to see what the route is through a complex intersection and ignore the voice.

Wow, I'm very surprised nobody mentioned landscape. I like to be able to see more on the sides of me.

I use my XM Skydock which I rotate to landscape mode for GPS use.

Portrait here too. I still have the TomTom car kit from 3 years ago and the way the cables hang, Portrait is better. Conceptually wider seems like it would be better, but I've never had a problem figuring out where I'm going in Portrait.

All in all, I'm really happy with TomTom's software (disclosure: Never bothered to try the others because I'm already satisfied).
