I'm currently playing around with more hildon-desktop patches (see here and here). Turns out that the "Maps" application doesn't support portrait mode (among other built-in apps), but it turns out it can be relayouted using simple HTML/CSS hackery.

The first result of this 5-minute-hack is this: http://thp.io/2011/maemo/portrait_mode_maps.sh. Pretty trivial, and as you can see on the photo, some parts would still need manual layouting. Also, this patch fixes the application into portrait mode, so landscape mode won't work after that (changing the script to change the layout back is left as an exercise for the reader ). I won't pursue this specific app (Maps) any further, but this should get interested community members who know HTML and CSS started on implementing portrait mode support in Nokia Maps

I hope it could be easily integrated with other mods for Nokia Maps like voice guidance. Did you contacted the developers that are currently working on it?

Well, /usr/share/nokia-maps/html/index.html is one big fat html file. And looks like we are not allowed to distribute the file.
A hint for others wanting to take a look at it: The download version of http://jsbeautifier.org/ is really useful.

It's the standard on-screen keyboard under the influence of the forced auto-rotation patch that's going to be included in the Community SSU at some point in the future.
