    In the manual, it's labeled as a "card holder" pretty much useless if you ask me.

    I use it for calling cards to hand out when I witness an accident. Others use it to store a parking pass. Not much else you can put there.

    Also works good for punch cards like car washes.

    Condensation from the A/C vent will drip down onto that slot. I notice the top of my stack of calling cards has ink smeared by this effect and is slightly curled. I don't know under what conditions this happens.

    So don't put anything in the slot that is paper and valuable.

    If you use A/C with recirculation inside of cabin this will be normal....including fogged rear window when there is not very hot or day....
    All car's will have this effect
    Condensation will also happens when there is high humidity and prolonged use of A/C....
    Try to stay out of Cabin recirculation unless is necessary if you standing still....
    Not very good to use if you drive with this option on
