I have a friend that has asked me to make them a phone docking station to mount in the center console area just below the USB ports of his Model S. Before I spend any time on this, I wanted to find out if someone has already provided a docking solution for the Model S yet. So is there a product out there yet that is a iPhone / Android phone dock / cradle that syncs with the USB port? I don't want to re-invent the wheel.
What I would create would be made from a solid piece of 6061 aluminum, precision machined to snugly fit in the console area. I've got a cable that has both the Apple lightning connector and the standard Android micro USB connector, so you could use either type of phone. I would probably anodize it black and laser etch the Tesla logo on it. Maybe I'll even make it a little bigger and mill out a pocket as a cup holder, since a lot of people complain about the cup holders.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
