center console questions

I have had my 2014 Overland for a couple of weeks now and love it.

Can anyone explain the purpose for the recess in the top of the lid in the center console? It looks like it may be for kleenex but can't get any small packages to fit there.

I also am wondering if you have ideas on what to put in the two compartments. The top seems too small for most things and the bottom is so big that you can't find anything. We are going to try using zip loc bags to organize stuff for the large compartment.

Find a good woman. They can fill a pocketbook twice the size of the console, and find a lipstick in there before you can blink an eye.

We were able to do it, also. Maybe OP has a bigger pocket pack.

Re: center console questions

I keep bottled water and snacks in the lower, larger bin. Notepads, pens and my trailer keys in the upper. No special "organization"...

Keep your extra cash in the top compartment. And, by the way, where do you park?

Re: center console questions

In the top bin, I keep napkins, my wallet when I am driving, and my parking pass for my building. On the bottom, I have some useless small things from my old car since I needed a place to throw some old stuff. I like how it has the top and bottom bin in the center console but I wish the bottom would have an air vent or something to cool it so I can keep some water bottles in there.

Re: center console questions

Awindj,

In the 2011-2013's the top compartment also had a USB port so you can keep an iPod or your phone connected to the USB port in there. I believe that was the true use of the top compartment. In the 2014's they moved the USB port to the lower front compartment so the top one in the center console don't have much use other than what others have pointed out.

Mike
