I have been anxiously awaiting this car kit and I must say that I will be extremely disappointed if this will not work horizontally.
I was about to post this find as well and notice you had already started a thread. Good looking outTwitter: @neekoadams

I DID see a Seidio rep mention in another thread that there were engineering difficulties getting the dock to work in the horizontal orientation. It was because the Evo has the USB port on the bottom of the device or something.

Honestly, why is horizontal better for navigation? I have 2 stand alone GPS units, as well as the EVO, and the extra width is useless. I don't care what's way to the side of my path, I care about what's in front of my path. I've used my Evo in both horizontal and vertical, and vertical works just fine, honest.PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

That being said I purchased a universal mount for my EVO and have used the navigation in both Vertical and Horizontal and there is little difference.. I just hate the universal mounts... I want a car kit made just for the phone... Still can't believe there is nothing on the market yet.... Amazing...

As mentioned the landscape profile is a preference thing, true. I'm partial to landscape for navigation, music playing, movie watching (for passengers of course). Additionally, overall less driving view obscured horizontal vs vertical from dash mount.
Waited a long time for an Evo specific mount similar to the moto Droid one
Shame. Well, the HTC EVO mount should be out soon. I'll keep an eye on that one.
Hopefully follows this pattern:

I know it's all personal preference but I like portrait navigation better as I can see farther up ahead than I normally can with the same zoom in landscape.
As someone else previously stated, I don't see the need for extra width in navigation mode.
Edit: For those that think portrait navigation is "useless" are out of your mind. I can understand personal preference, but I can't understand how you would consider portrait viewing unusable.
