every time i exit out of google car home, i get a force close message. i know others are experiencing this as well. i've tried to delete the included apk, and replace it with the one from market, but same results. i'm wondering if it's an issue with the car launcher apk.
are you sure they are not contact photos from your google account? those show up fine for me, but it's the facebook sync'd photos that don't.. again.. they show up fine in the contacts list, but not in the messages list
auto brightness never seems to adjust itself. i could go from a well lit room to dark, and the screen always seems to be on the lowest setting. the only time it even adjusted to a normal brightness was after a reboot from loading a theme.
