Using Fremantle Maps in portrait mode is important for pedestrian navigation. The user would carry the device in his pocket, taking it out with one hand to quickly glance at the map. Portrait orientation gives following advantages:

1. No need to rotate the device, stored vertically in ones pocket.

2. Possible to hold and use the device with one hand, like Nokia's Symbian phones.
