This is a phone dock for the Google Pixel 2 XL (with Spigen Tough Armor case), which fits in the base of the small storage area in the center console of a MK7 VW Golf/GTI/R. It provides a quick and easy connection for wired Android Auto usage. It fits entirely within the rubber liner so it shouldn't scratch anything. I own a 2017 GTI Sport DSG, for reference. I've included the tinkercad link below so you could adapt it for your setup if desired.
This design was inspired by this thing:
but I re-designed mine from scratch for my phone and taste.
And of course, the D-Docks unit is the popular solution to this:
I didn't like how bulky the d-dock was, for the sake of a universal fit. My design allows you to be able to still use most of the space in the absence of the phone, as well as the space along the side. It's also a bit pricey, and I didn't really like the requirement of super-sticky 3M tape to secure it in place.
The design relies on this specific right-angle usb-c cable:
It's the perfect length and minimizes wasted space.
Here's the case I'm using:
Here is the tinkerCAD link:
Rotate model 90deg about X so the back side is on the bottom. It shouldn't need any supports that way.
I used a couple drops of super-glue to secure the usb-c cable once I was comfortable with the fit and docking repeatability.
I used a strip of double-sided tape on the bottom, which provides reasonable grip for undocking. I believe it's carpet tape, and I used 5-6 layers to build up enough to adhere to the rubber liner. This should be a reversible solution.
