Where is auto headlight sensor?

Last weekend, my wife bought a 2014 CR-V EX-L AWD @ 72,000 kms /47,000 miles on her drive home. Its Bright white with a front ram bar. One of those impulse buys she often does.... She picks it up in 2-3 weeks - after inspection, insurance and being platted tasks. See below for picture.

Was reading online reviews and it has a factory "auto headlights" feature. Newbie question.... Where is its headlight daytime light "sensor"? re: In the front grill area, on the dash surface or ??? As you can tell, I know very little about vehicles and even less about the CR-V model. If wondering, I was told to keep its sensor super clean - or it acts up. Appreciate location and part number - so I can do a G00gle search on it as well.

The sensor is located inside the cabin, on the top center of the dash, near the bottom of the windshield. It will appear as a little dome
Perfect. Sounds like the same on the Pontiac Vibe. Thanks for the details on the CR-V....
After our used purchase, one of the 1st things I did was get into the menus and select "factory default". I didn't want any weird settings from the previous owner. At factory default, our "auto" headlights feature seems to work great - even in dim lighting conditions. The other thing I did was convert its factory FOG lights to be "always on". Yes, Even when its high beams are on. re: This simple MOD worked great for me as well....
