Hi, Yes, what to do with that empty space on the dashboard. Have you found a good use for it? I'm thinking about inserting a square digital clock or anything that has numbers and gives time since a clock is literally absent from the UVO system. I read on the Web this space is intended for a framed picture in some markets around the world. But then why the piece of non-skid material on the floor of the opening? Mesmerizes me.

UVO has a Clock in upper right hand corner of display
Or a freaking huge one in the middle when you turn the radio off. As for the empty hole, I keep my garage door opener there.

I know that. It's as big as the tiny blue Bluetooth display. Can you sincerely say you can read time from behind the wheel? I can't. It's too small to be so far away and be readable.

I think I'm going to build a little drawer of some sort, and keep all my change in it. :)
Don't forget to put a lock on it though!

I was thinking this is for sunglasses or cell phones although some of the Android phones probably won't fit.

I find it perfect for business cards. But yeah, some sort of change drawer would be good too.

I read in the owners manual (.pdf one) that it's somehow used as a picture frame. That feature must be in markets other than Can/US though...

My girlfriend has allergies and though I keep a box of tissues on the floor in the back seat, it's not always convenient to reach back and feel around for it. So I stuff 3 or 4 tissues in there for rapid access.

Works great!

I have also seen the reference to the "picture frame" and I think it was an afterthought to change to the box. A good afterthought in my opinion!

Don't really have an issue with it. And I would notice since I have the black interior.

Garage opener is what I put there. Still, its an odd item to have that space that high up on the dash. That was one of the first things I noticed when I was car shopping.
