Center Armrest

What's the hole in the end of the armrest for? Is there something that's supposed to be in there or is it for your phone or something?

It is supposed to be for your smart phone. Useless as "teats on a bull" in my opinion.

I agree - which is why I asked if it was for something else. Pretty flimsy too.

What hole for phone? Is it toward the front or the rear?

If you have the front center armrest and it is in the down position there is a cubby in the very end of it. It has a small clamp in it to ruin your phone screen... lol.

Depends what year. The 2019 redesigned interior has a holder for a weird cup holder cassette thing that you can stash there when you're not using it, or put in the middle for a second (arguably better) cup holder.

Putting a phone in there is a recipe for disaster IMHO. It has a metal clamp that exerts quite a bit of pressure on the screen as if daring you to put it there and watch it crack! That is why I put my driver's licence in a leather holder in there held in place by the metal clamp. On the odd time (very odd for me) when a policeman asks for licence and registration, POOF! It is in my hand in a jiffy.

It allows me to insert my phone with the pop socket popped out.
