When I'm driving, I sometimes (not often, just sometimes <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> ) like to take turns really fast and see if I can break the tires loose and have some fun. But whenever I do that, all I hear is BANG, slide, WOOSH, BOOM, and stuff flying around my car. <p>I keep an air pump with me in my car in case I blow out one of these anorexic 40 profile tires and need to pump up my spare, and I can not find a secure place to keep it! I've tried folding up the trunk divider and holding it with the elastic, jamming it on the side shelf of the trunk, and nothing works. How do you guys secure stuff like that? <p>And then that jacket holder button. I wore a suit one time and got excited cause I got to use the passenger seat button holder. But I couldn't figure out how to use it! Is the jacket supposed to slide between the console/seat and hang from the button? Can someone just take a picture and show how its used? haha. I just put the jacket on the front seat like normal because I got frustrated with it.<p>However, I do love the pen holder in the glove box! It nicely holds my tire pressure gauge nice and snug!<p>Then behind the floating console - is that where you are supposed to keep your phone? Mine always flies out. I've found that that small square box behind the cupholders holds my phone nicely. Whats that square meant for anyways?<p>Then I keep my: <IMG SRC="http://knivesandmultitools.com/library/4605455.jpg" BORDER="0"> in the driver door pocket. Good location for when you pull up next to that Caddy with spinning 24's and need a knife handy. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> And next to that is the Purell hand sanitizer for after filling up the gas tank. Ya never know where some guys hands have been before they touch the gas pump. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>And the iPod simply stays tethered to the aux cable and happily rests in the passenger seat. And within the console/box area thing lays all the cash I get back from paying at drive thru's, as well as my chargers for various devices.<p>So how to you guys keep that S80 organized? Maid service? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Keeping things Secured In The Car (vivek9856)

Not easy to keep items in place when driving as the vehicle has some body roll. I use the small square to hold my iphone, fits very nice. However the 12v acc is inconvenient, too close to elbow rest. I use the rear seat 12 v acc to connect the GPS and transformer for the USB port. Of course whenever someone sits in middle seat they invariably knock off the 12 V plug, so the GPS does not work unitl plugged back in again.<p>Question about the ipod on the aux port. What do you do when you trun the car off and need to get out for about 5-10 min. I always forget to turn off ipod, and therefore have missed 5-10 minutes of my podcast. How can I have the ipod turn off, when I turn off my volvo? And then re-start when I re-start the car?

Usually, every time I get out of my car, I grab my iPod Touch, double tap the square button, hit pause, and throw it into the center console, because I know quite a few friends who have had their windows broken so that someone could steal their iPod because it was visible. So I pause the iPod and hide it from view every time I leave my car - I suggest you do the same to save both your car and iPod!

I currently do so in the centre console where the aux input is and since I only have 6 of them (placed standing up) they fill half the box. Very often I have to pack the centre console because they get tossed around in there and make a mess...

Re: Keeping things Secured In The Car (vivek9856)

I think it's supposed to hug the side of the seat on both sides... but that's if no one is sitting there. <p>My car is the wagon version of the S80 (otherwise known as the V70)... front half of the car is virtually identical. The motor is a 2.5T...
