everyone with a nbs has this problem
i have heard of a few ways to fix this problem but none that i have tried myself so if u brake something then its on you
1st one, bend the shifter arm alittle bit to clear
heat and bend it, don't know how that would work but wutever
3rd buy a billet unit and relocate the tow-haul buttom and bend it to clear
4th, i remember seeing this in a mag about 6 months or so maybe 9 months but anyways
it was in the new products of the mag
it was a billet shifter arm that still had the tow/hual buttom in the stock place, all u had to do was unplug the switch and unplug in the new one and it was good to go
and of course mode it to clear the screen
live with it and just move the arm alittle bit to clear
number 5 is what i have been doing on my nbs for almost a year now

yea ive been doin that too, but it is getting old quick. Lately ive jus been closing the screen right b4 i get where im going. Idk i wish there was an easy solution that didnt involve the chance of me breaking sumthing.

i just switched mine over to manual mode and i leave the screen out all the time.

Trade that flip out for a double din unit. You will be happier.

i think the single din's are better because u can close up the screen and it looks like a reg hu, nothing to crazy because the controls don't look high tech
and the double din, someone looking can tell its a screen or a high tech deck because the controls and what not look pretty crazy, u can tell its highend ez-er pretty much is what im trying to say
i like to be low key with the fact that i have a bad a$$ system in my ride

I've never got anything stolen out of my vehicle so hiding my HU does not seem to important. Especially since I have a lifted truck(can't see it outside) and an alarm system.
