    My Prime Plus came with the black center console, but the place where I would put a phone or sunglasses is just hard shiny plastic, which means things would slide around and make scratches.

    So I picked up a "Carbon Fiber Style Center Console Tray Storage for Toyota Prius XW50" on eBay for $14. I wasn't sure if the fit and finish would be good, but for the low price I took a chance. It's made of molded rubber and fits nicely in the center console and matches the style of the interior.

    That's not bad. What advantages does this provide over the existing "tray?" Do objects in this tray stay in place better?

    The stock center console is shiny & hard black plastic, so it has no cushion or grab to keep items from sliding around.

    Do you find that this insert prevents sliding around?

    Yes, it's made from rubber so it prevents most of the sliding compared to the stock hard plastic.

    Looks nice. I did a search and all the ones I found were from China and don't say how long delivery takes.

    Mine took about 2 weeks to arrive from China.

    I bought a set of these fitted rubber mats right after I acquired my Prime back in 2017:



    In addition to preventing objects from sliding around in the console, they also catch dust and crumbs in the cup holders and door pockets, making it much easier to keep the car clean.

    My set has blue trim but is otherwise identical to the red trim shown on the Amazon site. You may be able to find this from some other supplier.

    The link and graphic are there, perhaps it is your ad blocker. I posted it below.

    I saw those and almost bought them.

    I ended up choosing mine because it covers more area and is divided into 3 sections.

    Maybe post some installed pics of the ones you bought?

    No. It won't even charge my phone through its phone case. In fact, when in the case, my phone won't even lay flat in the charger.

    Thanks for the info. I was thinking of something like that. Looks like the rear cup holder piece will not fit on PRIME.

    Don't think so. But even if it did work, Qi charger on PRIME is almost useless for today's power hungry smartphones. Unless you have Qi enabled Nexus 4 or something similar from yesteryear, the remote charger will not keep your phone full charged.

    Looked at the ones on Amazon, but decided on this one. I already have liners for the cup holders and I like the shape of this one better. It'll just require a little more patience since it won't get here for about 3 weeks. But sipping was free, so heck of a deal at $13.95 total.
