Default Album cover disappears?

Is there any way to show the album cover of a song while driving? It disappears as soon as you put it in drive. Not sure why a static graphic would be a liability.

Yes, North America Lexus stopped us from seeing the Gracenote covers for all radio stations unless you are in Park. I heard there was a liability lawsuit due to an accident claiming driver was distracted by cover. CRAZY. Next will be the map on the screen, etc. If someone calls from your contact, and you have a picture associated with it, it will not show unless you have your foot on the brake like at a stop sign. The case for all phones. Though, if you cross a state border, the picture from that state shows up for a few seconds. Register complaints as I have done with corporate. They started this with LS 2018 and forward, and the ES 2019 and forward as they phase this restriction for all their models.

thanks for the info. Wow. Completely inane. The navigation causes more distraction than a picture that doesn’t even take up a quarter of the screen real estate. Smh.

Imagine asking someone how they crashed their car and they say, "I was staring at my album cover art" LMAO
