Problem is its not exclusive to the C7 all the newer Chevrolets have this area behind the radio even the Impala. It appears to be a parts bin Chevrolet radio. You know something is going to fall in that track and jam the screen sooner or later.

Don't stick your crayons in the track while the screen is down after you are done with your coloring book at the olive garden and you will be fine.

You find any little thing to bash the C7 to justify your 2013 C6 purchase.

I agree. What else is everyone gonna put behind the cool touch screen? Here are a few useful items I've mentioned before...

Man it must suck to be you and live day after day always with your negative waves . . .

Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves. Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Also the USB connection is back there so you can plug in your Ipod there and not take up any space in the arm rest.

I have a cubby hole (with a door) like that in my 07 Camry...and I don't have to turn the screen off to get at what is in it. With so many cars with places like this, I fail to see the attraction.

Yeah, likely would along with brass knucks and a throwing star or two.
