My phone fits in the little tray in front of the console quite well at about a 45 degree angle. I use the audio over bluetooth (which is excellent) and I can glance down occasionally to look at the map if I really need to. Although I dont have to most times because im using Google Maps/Nav and its great about being very descriptive about distances, screen names, etc.
If it really bothered me I would get a windshield mount but 99% of the time I can go just on the audio because the software is that good. Since I am not concerned about resale I would pass on it even if I ordered a car because those systems quickly become out of date and are usually crap compared to what is built into Android.
