Phone won't rotate 180⁰

After the latest phone update, the screen won't rotate 180⁰. After speaking with Samsung, this appears to be down to the latest OneUI not supporting 180⁰ rotation. Very frustrating, as it worked perfectly before. 😡

AFAIR none of the Samsung phones I've had do this. Just out of interest, why would you want the screen upside-down?

I use Google maps as a satnav in my wagon and when it's plugged into the charger it stands up properly

Try the 'Rotation Control' app from Google Play.

If you don't want to install an app, open Google Maps, select a place at random and start navigating to it. You can then invert the screen and exit from Maps and the screen stays upside-down.

How the heck did this get past testing!? Guess im forced to use a 3rd party app to fix what wasn't broken to begin with on a phone that cost $1000+(Z Fold 3) Is there even a plan to fix this!?

As above, it was fine before, why take the rotation out? I need to put my phone in the holder upside down because of the charging cable!
