The car works well in one of the most expensive gasoline locations ($4.20/gal) locations in America! Photos taken at hotel with sea views. Did not get GPS because it was costly and cumbersome. Instead, my old but updated Garmin Nuvi fits perfectly in the phone caddy package provided in my trunk. iPod Nano is great via USB. iPhone on bluetooth! All this and my penchant to dial up Sport Mode makes me a happy camper!

I have the same Garmin unit and just ordered a CT. Looking for the best option to install the unit (without using the windshield mount). I have mine hard wired in my current car & am so used to the setup, I need to figure out what makes the most sense in the CT for a similar setup!

Sorry, not trying to jack your thread w/ scenic photos, but did notice your GPS location. Can you even use the power/charger with it in the accessory holder?

Yes you can!

Hi!

All you have to do is open the hatch, pull up the rug, open the cover, and voila, you will see a mounting bracket in a hard-to-open plastic wrapper. It fits neatly and securely into an obvious slot, and will adjust to your Garmin well, even with the antenna up. Just below this mount are two power options; a lighter plugin 12 V, and USB. If you don't have either of these wires (with one end the "mini" USB plug matching the GPS unit), they are common and at Best Buy. Take a picture and post when you are done!

Uhhh, try to resist the Sport Mode if you can...you will love the car!
:D

More CT Scenery

All you need--besides the car--is jazzy scenery and Nikon D7000 with a trio of fun lenses. Note CT peeking out beyond the benches and trees..sneaky, aren't I?

How about posting pix of CT 200h in scenery? All invited here!

I think the car is even nicer photographed amid beautiful scenery (vs. cars in driveways with trash cans). Whadd'a think? here are "examples," and what the heck is Photoshop anyway? :D Please post your CT pix in (real) scenery so that we all enjoy!

CT could have went with ad's like this based on its eco-friendlyness

Day at the Spa! While my dealer has laved my CT twice, TODAY was its first "spa" day! This is the place on The PCH in Newport that washes The Batmobile (no kidding; the REAL Batmobile). I've been taking my cars there for years and they do a great job for little money. So the guys know me and know I name my cars--like Trigger (Mustang/saddle leather), Sparky (red Prius), Greenie (Mustang Bullitt), etc. They had not yet encountered a CT, but liked it and named it "El sinorita hermoso de la ciudad (CT, get it?) por el mar" or, for short "Cutie." Go figger. :)
