I went this route.The only other problem with that location is that it makes it extremely hard to hit the Active button, and fiddle with the settings. Love it for temporary nav so that I don't have to yell at the OG capacitive touch screen built into the car, just as you show in the photo. If you go ahead with the Lightning installation I'd love to see the final pics!
On a similar note -- is there any good way to attach a Valentine 1 radar detector to the 12C without blocking much visibility? I tried using the suction cups up front, just above the center vent in the dash, but it never sticks for very long. Might just be caused by the Miami heat, but I've yet to see anyone with a V1 attached and would love any other ideas!
You might consider using the visor mount, or possibly just above the rearview mirror if you can get a bracket off the rear view.On a similar note -- is there any good way to attach a Valentine 1 radar detector to the 12C without blocking much visibility?

I feel the same about all that carbon. Interior looks too dark in all CF. The metal finish actually looks higher quality n sets the interior off better especially with stitching n tutone alcantera/leather option. You have a good eyeI know it's the cheap interior, but I like it. I don't know why, but I'm really not into the carbon fiber finish's. The carbon fiber airbrake is something I would have preferred to do without. Funny thing too, my favorite rims are the diamond cut light weights (non flower) and the base rims. I like the look of the base rims a lot.
So two points from this. I have cheap taste! Or, I suspect the original aluminum/rims are what the designers came up with and then started pivoting design options around it. I'm going with the latter just to make myself feel better.
If they could only make an app for the iphone to interface with my radar detector - that set up would be perfection.So the guys at Philly Mac made this a reality for me. They roped a lightening connector from the center armrest glove box out under the parking brake.
Kevin "magic hands" H. fabricated a custom dock and got things snaked through. Matt G. and Chad rock for putting up with me and making this real.
Here are a few more shots of the dock Kevin H. at McLaren Phili made for me. The felt'y fabric he put on the sides is great, it's really snug in there, and even during high G turns at the track, it won't budge.
Also included a shot of the small 3 port USB hub. It lets me plug in the iPhone dock, a USB stick and some 3rd device (like an iPod) simultaneously.
