Where the nav screen would be there is now a storage hatch. I read that this hatch will have a 12v plug for charging of garmin or cell phones.

The storage hatch makes a lot of sense. I like the idea a lot.

Interesting, you could prob rig up a 7 inch tablet to fit there to use for streaming music and navigation through Bluetooth

All the other pictures I see have a smooth hatch, no storage area..
Is this something that has changed for the 2012s?

I'm looking for a switch that would turn off the proximity notification noise, anybody see any possibilities, perhaps on the left?

I don't think there will be an off switch. Here's another view. The only switch I can make out looks like the windshield de-icer.

Is that floor mat gray? I thought all CTs had black carpet? The premium mats are only available in black.

And the dash? The upper portion looks lighter. Hasn't that always been in black? I've always considered the black a compromise.

The photos have poor lighting. They were taken in a dealership with a phone camera. Also, the black components in the CT are varying shades of black....much to my dismay.

Damn, really wish they thought of that the first go-around. Would be a great location to hardwire and mount a non-factory aftermarket NAV (like I did in my last car).

On Lexus.ca it is listed in Touring, Premium, and F-Sport packages (Canadian). Not sure if it comes on Base model.

Thanks!
I've got a 2012 Touring on order, and I am looking forward to mounting some sort of screen in that compartment.

I'm surprised (and disappointed) they didn't do this in 2011 as well. It's not as if they haven't done it before. My 2001 IS300 had a tray which apparently had a cover in the Japanese version. I bought the cover and made it into a useful storage compartment. The CT is lacking in storage IMO.

The later year IS300s came with this as well. They learned their lesson after the first year. But I personally liked the open tray on my 2001 IS.

Look into putting a 7" tablet there. It's what I would do if I had that slot.
You can easily streaming nav and Pandora through the Bluetooth streaming .
