Thanks Max12 and darkride,

Seems like it would be hard to see around. How is the visibility when it is there?

I agree with Max, is the view obstructed with it there.

I've worked a bit with ergonomics and the viewing areas in vehicles and how slight changes in obstructed views can prove fatal to pedestrians or increase the potential for accidents. And I've always thought the rearview mirror was already low and big in the CT blocked more of the view then needed. Just be cautious :) Don't want you hurting yourself or your CT.

From the 2nd picture, it seems you have a device holder in place to the right of the mode-selector. Does that have the capability of holding your ipad. If so you could place it there and have it tilted up and towards you.

Another question, just out of curiosity how is the nav on the ipad, is it delayed?

Kind of an update. There are a bunch of solutions out there if the device holder from Lexus doesn't work. There are a few products from a company called RAM that makes Ipad mounts.

Some of them are pretty cool such as cupholder mount

I don't think that would fly here. Too big of obstruction. If you look at LEO squad vehicles their lap top is below console . I believe if it cluttered their view and had an accident some city would be footing a big bill.
I like the one Darkside posted and may try one down the road...

Beautiful car. Is this the color that was replaced with mercury gray in 2012? I don't see how they could improve on it, unless they thought it was too close to black. If so, this will be the rare color. I love it, it would be sad to see it go.
