Yes, it's not too bad to reach if I really need to (and I have long arms), although I don't tend to do that while I'm moving. Below is another picture for perspective. I think that if I needed to adjust it more frequently and/or when moving, I'd want it mounted higher. But it would be harder to see in that respect. Some folks have installed it in the bin in the center console, but that does require making your own cable as the pre-terminated one will not reach that far.
