Mine was stupidly placed on the silver mount around the gearstick when I bought my civic, meaning my hand bashed against it everytime I went into 5th gear. I've moved it into the little compartment above it instead and it actually looks quite smart. Can fold it away too when it's not being used. I'll take a picture later when I'm in the car.
Looking through the forum it seems that most folk put it up beside the radio display, no idea why it wasn't done that way in mine.
