Would be great for when my 5-year-old asks "are we nearly there yet" for the 1,000 time

Yes, I was talking about the ashtray area in front of the gear selector that has the removable plastic insert, I throw my keys where Conquistador has his missile launcher buttons, but would like to make use of that area in front for something when I remove the ashtray.
