Hi all!
I would like to modify the tiny cubbyhole at the front of the center console (beneath the climate controls) to insert an additional cigarette lighter socket. It is pretty useless for me as is cause its too small for anything,
I recently acquired a ROAV VIVA (a Amazon Alexa powered lighter usb adaptor- available here https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075WN2FY5/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1).
I cant really figure out where to place it within the vehicle and I was thinking that if someone could 3D print an insert for this cubby with a solid face and a hole for an after market adapter, I could place it in there. Seems like it would be a decent location.
Anyone want to make a few bucks and play with their new 3D printer toy? :grin2:

Wish I had a 3D printer to help. The things I could do with one...
Maybe there's a printing service near you who can do it for a small fee.

For RHD models there exist a sort of panel with 2 extra 12v and USB ports.. hope one smart Chinese will make such a thing for LHD too.


Powerpanel SY-C5
Yeah DuuCH-R! That's exactly what i was imaging but without the second socket and perhaps recessed farther back into the cubby...
Thanx everyone...

that is by far my favorite feature to have because coming from a history of cars without these, wiring them up isn't always fun and if you don't want to wire it up, paying someone to do it isn't always cheap!

The Powerpanel above is plug and play.. on the right side you see the 12v wire that needs to be plugged in the 12v socket from armrest.

Wire it up seperate would not be more as 30 minutes labour for a Toyota mechanic i guess.
In fact its one wire to ground and another to +12v.

Good eye Dutch! That certainly is how it appears. Is this an aftermarket item? If it's oem, I wonder if I could order one from a euro dealer... Only problem would be that this particular one is for right hand drive and the faceplate is completely opposite of the us version. Anyone like to have one of these? Might justify me be my geeky self and getting a 3D printer of my own and print them for any interested parties ?

If you do decide to venture into getting that 3D printer. You can add me up as an interested party :)
