Heres a game for you ,who can come up with another use for the card slot just left of the stereo.Ihave no use for it and need an alternative.I have fuel cards in a slot on a works van,but feel there is not a lot of use for it on a family motor.No prizes just for fun.

Good thinking. I reckon you would have to make sure it didnt protrude over to the left and was well clear of the airbag area. I think it would need to come over to the right and up trouble is it obscures the air vent.

I used double side velcro fitted to the dashboard for the satnav. Luckily it's the same colour so you don't really notice its their. Allows me to position satnav either for driver or passenger.

HI , I REMOVED THE RUBBER MAT IN THE STORAGE HOLE , THEN THE 2 BLACK PIECES OF DASH EACH SIDE OF THE STORAGE AREA JUST UNCILP UPWARDS NO SCREWS HOLD THESE . THEN UNSCREW THE SELF TAPPERS THAT CAN BE SEEN SO THE CABLE CAN BE THREADED THROUGH OUT OF SIGHT , I REMOVED A SMALL BIT OF PLASTIC WITH A STANLEY KNIFE SO THE CABLE COULD RUN UN TRAPPED . IN THE PASSENGER FOOT WELL I DROPPED THE ACCESS PANEL TO THE FUSE BOX SO I COULD THREAD THE PLUG DOWN [ A BIT FIDDLEY AND JUSTCHECK THE CABLE IS NOT CATCHING ON ANYTHING ] . THEN JUST SLIPPED IT UNDER CENTER CONSOUL . WHEN NOT IN USE THE PLUG IS OUT OF SIGHT UNDER SEAT

Hi, i fully understand your directions ,this is on the new cmax i believe. the previous cmax has a different top on it with a big opening. so may not be possible to do the same but could be modifyed to suit.
