Got some info on this.For Z5 the option is not there. Probably because there isn't a dock for Z5. But if it will be added I do not know.

I just purchased my Xperia Z5 to replace my Z3 and noticed the home screen doesn't rotate to landscape as it did with the Z3. This is a definite step backwards Sony....

Z3+ hasn't landscape dock too but has home screen rotation on Android 5.0.2.

The home rotation problem also happens when the phone is connected to an MHL/Mirror Link car head unit.
My Z3C has worked flawlessly with my Kenwood DDX5901HD.
Now my Z5C shows the home in portrait mode in the middle of the HU screen that is landscape.
When I open apps (like Sygic GPS) it goes to landscape. Thanks God!
There is also a second problem with Smart Connect; I have it set to turn ON Bluetooth when MHL connected.
But it does do it, if I manually turn it on then it works.
Z3C never failed.
I "upgraded" to Z5C as I was very happy with my Z3C but now I am not liking it... :-(
These things need to be fixed please

I solved my home rotation problem installing a free App called "Apex Launcher". Lots of customisations are possible.
I solved the issue with bluetooth automatic connection to the car head unit by creating a new HDMI/MHL based connection in Smart Connect. The older connection was set to connect to the head unit name that appeared listed there.
Now everything is back to normal.
