T1N owners - Tiny modification, large reduction in aggravation.
Do you know how the second 12 volt
dash outlet is inside the ashtray, but you can't use that outlet and have cups of any size in the cup holder at the same time? Because when you pull out the ashtray to access it, it blocks the cup holder space? OMG that makes me furious, that some automotive engineer would be THAT DUMB to create a design like that.
We can use a USB splitter on the other 12 V dash outlet, but sometimes I want to put an inverter there instead, and it gets cumbersome to have everything coming off that one other outlet. So my husband bought a low-profile adapter and then took a dremel tool and made a tiny cut-out in the bottom left portion of the ashtray. You can see it where the white iPhone cord is emerging through the bottom.
The point being, now we can now plug in at this second location in the dash, and still have access to it when we close the ashtray. We can now use the outlet and we haven't defaced the OEM ashtray in any detectable way in the process.
