      • accomodate both horizontal layouts

        The clock readout is partially obscured when phone is rotated 90 degrees clockwise on Lumia Icon. It is obscured by the add destination / fly out menu tab. It wasn't always like this, but I'm not sure which update broke this layout. Please fix :)

        • add speed limit / current speed to status swipe

          Where the time / battery / weather icons sit. If you could have an option to show current speed?

          • Support for all WP resolutions, please

            When I click add destination, the coordinates are so oddly places. Half the text block is out of screen on my Lumia 920, and when I change orientation to landscape, its worse.

              • Show status bar

                With the advent of Windows Phone 8.1 and the loss of Glance on the Lumia Icon and 930, having the Status Bar showing is an ideal replacement and I now use Car Dash as my docking station app in lieu of Glance.
                If the status bar would show, then I could see I have notifications from apps, much like the lock/glance screen would show me using the icons at the bottom.
                Please add the Status bar visibility to the app, if even by option only.

                Thanks!

                        Here Drive will be pinnable to app shortcuts, or the main buttons in the next version of Car Dash, which should hopefully be available this week.

                        • Add swipe commands to music player.

                          Buttons are not ideal for in car music player control: swipe commands (like: swipe anywhere inside the music player box from left to right for next song, right to left for previous, or tap to pause music) are much easier and "safe" to use.

                              This will allow me within the application to choose a destination other than Home or Work. If I'm headed somewhere new although I'll be able to use your app for the return trip, I have to launch Here Drive + separately on the trip there.

                                  I often launch Car Starter before enabling location services. The ability to launch the location service from a settings tile would be ideal. I typically keep location services switched off to conserve the battery

                                    I would like the app to show me the configurable apps on startup (page #3), not the #1 page (time, Battery, etc)

                                        • Allow configurable buttons

                                          To be able to configure the buttons on the home screen would be invaluable. What if I like to use GMaps+? How about starting Pandora? etc. Let me configure the buttons that I have and what they do in terms of app launching, etc.

                                          Check out Nokia's Car Mode app to see what I'm referring to. It has the ability but it doesn't persist across runs of the app so it's pretty much useless.
