can't see. pic too clear.

wtf am i looking at? satellite radio receiver? I suppose you could pop the wires out from behind the center vents. if you remove the vents and push a grabber tool down the passenger side, it comes out down near the bottom of the glove box. that's where I ran my backup camera's wires (module under the nav screen, behind the vents)

not really. maybe someone else can chime in on that. a plastic trim tool comes in real handy in this case so you don't jack up your dash.

Garage List
I don't have a pic at the moment but I went and bought an XM Sportscaster which is pretty slim and used double sided tape to mount it right below the HVAC controls. All wires are loomed together and tucked under center console and run back to AUX and power under armrest. I'm happy with it.
