What Else Can I Use A Cup Holder For?

As I don't use the dash cup holders for anything, being that I made a coffee mug insert, for the space in the centre console. (previous project).

I decided to see if I could do something dash cup holders without destroying them.

Since I have an iPhone I decided to make something for that. I have the oem sat/nav so i don't need the iPhone for that but seeing that the Toyota doesn't included speed cameras then I could use my iPhone for speed/safety camera alerts.

As an iphone would obviously fall straight through I needed a removeable base I could put in and take out to close the cup holder.

So since I am lucky enough to work with composites what better than a carbon fibre insert.

This was made from a few different pieces then bonded together to get the latch to grip it on the cup holder. So it wouldn't slip out.

Slipped into the cup holder.

And with the iphone in place.

I have been using it for a good few weeks now and even on bumpy roads and tight corners the iphone has stayed put.

When not in use it slides off and lives in the drivers map pocket. Simples.............

Whats more the 'POI-Warner' app for the iphone works a treat. Spotted all the speed cameras I've come across so far.

That's so cool when you do something yourself. It starts from the idea and finally you've got a ready product! NO to ready sloutions :thumbsup:

I like the idea and also how you did it, it looks cool and is obviously working too :)

Best regards, Alex

I'm just the same, use the dash cupholder for my Nokia N95. You couldn't ask for a better fit.

I also tried this but the iPhone is too wide for the ashtray.
