    Sorry if this is not the right place to post this...I am having a bit of hard time finding a good place for my sunglasses.

    Where do you put it without damaging it?

    Mine fit in the little cubby under the touchscreen, I have them in a soft case. Backup pair in the glovebox. My car has the yatch floor so I occasionally leave them there ...

    I'll second using the compartment below the touchscreen. I have mine in the cloth bag that came with the sunglasses and I haven't had any problems.

    In a hard case inside the center console compartment of the EVAnnex Center console I bought. I also now have a cubby drawer. That would be a good place too.

    I use the little compartment below the touchscreen as well, but be warned if you decide to floor the accelerator. My Ray-Bans got a nice scratch right in my line of sight from one such misadventure, when the glasses came flying out and struck lens-first against the unforgiving yacht floor. So either don't gun it or use a soft case as others do.

    My drawer just below the touch screen, they are on Amazon. Several brands available. Beware of the stuff from China, made of wood.

    In the handle pocket on the door. Hoping for a under-screen cubby drawer for my birthday.

    I keep mine in the cubby in a hard case
    I guess I was too cheap to buy a cubby drawer but I used a piece of rubberized shelf liner cut to size to line the cubby. It's black and you don't see it
    Cuts way down on noise and movement

    Our cubby drawers are still on sale for $49

    They are ludicrous mode proof ! Won't fly out like our competitors!

    Ours stay closed and lots of room for sunglasses.

    I use a fairly thin strap and hang them from the mirror. Works well.

    Also love Norm's cubby, but use that for my readers, screen cleaner, Kind Bar, etc.

    I need to check out the cubby drawer :) I can't put anything on the shelf due to Ludicrous mode. I currently put my sunglasses in the driver's door handle, however one time I found them broken in there and I wonder if a valet driver pulled hard on them or something.

    I used one of these plastic clips for a while, but eventually gave up and now keep them in the cubby below the screen, like everyone else.

    Keep mine in a hard case at the front of the yacht floor -- the case doesn't fit in the cubby, or I'd keep them there.

    I place mine on the floor, between the driver's seat and the up-turned edge of the floor-mat. I've never seen anything fall off from there -- and it can't roll around to where my feet are. So far so good - and they are relatively tucked away from 'prying eyes'.

    I have the hand-made cubby from Carina that is so popular. I love it and it never comes out when accelerating. I keep my sunglasses and anything else small that needs a home like pens, charging cards, gum, etc. I couldn't live without that drawer.
