what is thing below and to right of steering wheel?

I just got my new 2012 Focus SEL Saturday and am still trying to figure out what everything is and how it works. I was wiring in my radar detector and saw a thing that looks like a mic in the panel below the steering wheel. It is below and to the right of the steering wheel. Does anyone know what this is? I will post a pic tomorrow for clarification.
