    I wondered if any late model Boxer owners might be able to tell me what the cup looking item is in the following picture:

    Is it a cup?, seems to have some sort of electrical connection on the bottom. I haven’t received my vehicle yet and I see some pictures with it fitted and others not.

    I have no idea what it is/does, but know I cannot live any longer without it!!

    It's an ashtray (or container for bits and bobs) which can be pulled out for emptying. We had one in our Citroen Berlingo.

    The two sockets (the left one of which has a cigarette lighter in it) are completely separate.

    It's the ashtray, in the form of a cup. same as shoguns, volvo trucks,fiat ducato's etc.
    The electric things are the 12v sockets.

    Thanks, damm I'll have to take up smoking cigarettes again :confused:

    Sorry, I meant it seemed to have some electrical connection on the bottom of the "cup", I assume now this is a screw to enable turing the space into a proper cup holder.

    Well, I have found that if you take the 'ashtray' out, you can fit a medium Caramel Latte Cooler (with extra cream) from Costa in there! Perfect! :drink:

    We coil the wire from our Tom Tom up and put it in ours, looks a lot neater than having it trailing all over the dash board.

    It should be a screw under the removable rubber base. This, plus a number of plastic clip lugs is what secures the panel that contains this, the 12v sockets, hazard switch, etc to the rest of the dashboard.

    I'm not sure if this will work with the latest Boxer/Ducato but it does on ours (2003 Ducato).

    Buy a tub of facial wipes from Superdrug and push the empty tub into the cup holder. The top is just right for mounting the sat nav. See photos.

    Surely having the Nav that close to the radio would cause interference ?

    We keep the garage keys in there and change for car parks and tolls.

    Not in our experience. Certainly no electrical interference. The sat nav instruction voice is loud enough to hear above the radio.

    When you think about it, in positional terms it isn't much different from using a vent mount for a sat nav in a car.

    On our van putting the Garmin Nav anywhere near the radio sets of crackling.. The Nav instructions say not to put the Nav near the radio and in our case they were right.

    Very strange, I've never heard of that.

    I've used both the Noza Tec and the Garmin Camper 760 in the position shown by the photos without problems. I've also used a TomTom Go 820 and Garmin Nuvi 2569 with vent mounts just above the radio in our Skoda Roomster, also without any problems.

    I mounted our Garmin directly above the radio in our van which is a late model Boxer. I bought one of those round had plastic pads from Halfords and stuck that on the dash and put the Nav on that. It was a great place for us as both of us could see it clearly which with my hopeless sense of direction was great.

    But the crackling on the radio was irritating ! The wife read the Garmin handbook which stated clearly that the large magnets in the unit will interfere with electronic devices if close by.. Dopey here had been tuning in the radio thinking it was that.

    The nav now resides to the right of the steering wheel up on the dash and all is well. Except of course the gaffer cant see it and help me out.. Mmmmmm
