New Project - Custom Iphone Mod Center Console


Recommended Posts

i was snooping around on ebay, and i came across a mint condition duplicate of my center console.

it was only $150 so i bought it immediately.

im planning on integrating a custom iphone charging dock into it.

any ideas or suggestions?

im thinking of drawing power from the cigarette lighter.

I mounted my palm treo 750 by just cuting a piece of black plastic and cutting a binder clip to keep it from bouncing or moving. this way i can just use my phone book instead of using the car phone book. Also I need to reference my calendar quite often to schedule things while im driving (I know its not safe), but this allows my phone in view and easy access. I ran an "add a circuit" to the passenger fuse block for the cigarette lighter and ran the power cord out between the driver seat and the black padded panel side of the center console. Ill post a few pics. works good enough for me.

nope. just put it in there. bought an add-a-cigarette lighter from Pep Boys. grounded one side to bolt and positive to the add a fuse. just plugged in the car charger into that. works fine. I dont use the phone charger much. when its not in use it just tucks between the center console and seat out of view.

Might also add a thin/stealth Valentine detector remote in the ash tray.
