Your are correct, there are zones the screens have to be in to be legal, if I recall correctly it is 30 degrees sight angle is the max. This why the screen is where it is. Luckly it isnt a touch screen... then the screen would also have to be alot closer to the driver which would stand up the center instrument panel even more.
