    What "this" are you referring to? The pad is just a hand rest. The knob under the pad is mode control: Track, Sport, Tour, Weather, MyMode. The three buttons in front of it are traction control off, front-end lift, and front curb camera.

    If you mean the silver bar that says "mode," that 's just a label. Doesn't do anything.

      Okay, so My Mode is there. That should be useful.

        I wish they forgot about the fancy little handle, and left that area like the C7, with a mode knob and a 12v power socket. We lost the socket!!

          It's in the console.

            Still lost a socket, as my C7 console has a second socket And getting a wire from a radar detector into the console is less straight forward than the present C7 location

                that little hand pad over the round mode selector nob looks like it will wear and the stitching is suspect...looks like it may come apart. Should be easy and cheap to replace however. Also, would have been nice if they had made the suede steering wheel with at least one portion that was solid leather or carbon rather all suede to lessen the wear on the suede during everyday cruising. I super duper careful with my GT3 suede wheel and when I sold it, the suede on the wheel still showed wear. I’ll never own an all suede wheel ever again.

                  We learned, I think, that there's another 12 volt socket below the glove box:

                    Your hand probably won't be on that pad enough to really cause a lot of wear. How often do you turn the mode dial, or press one of the buttons in front of it? I agree with you about the suede wheel, though.

                      Having seen and touched the mouse pad, I respectfully disagree. The thread on the C8 is deliberately a larger diameter for better feel, appearance and wearability. I have seen and quickly handled the mouse control pad, and it feels good and IMO looks gorgeous.

                      All C8 leather is treated so its susceptibility to soil and damage is significantly treated. GM is known to have excellent wearability test standards throughout the industry. As one example, the dash leather is exposed in GM’s weather testing acceleration lab to 100,000 hours of simulated Arizona 100,000 hours of sun fade resistance. As one specific, in the 2017 GS Collector Edition, that model’s reveal was delayed three months because while the dash’s color fast/fade was excellent at 80,000 hours, it showed minor fail at 90,000 hours; consequently it was sent back to the supplier for improvements, re-tested, and then past the 100,000 hour fade test without any.

                            I saw a socket inside the front storage area. You could probably thread a wire through the dash

                              My wife know my insights are far from perfect. So do I, well in hindsight.
