    I'd like to place an NFC tag in my Model S that can be used to enable/disable the travel settings for my cellphone.


    I was looking for suggestions for the most effective/least obtrusive location for the tag.


    My interior is carbon fiber/alcantara, and unfortunately the carbon fiber appears to interfere with the NFC connection.


    I also have an Evannex Center Console (also in carbon fiber), but before I stick it on the upholstery was wondering if someone else had already come up with a clever solution.

    Not in a tesla, but in my personal vehicle, and my work truck, I have an NFC tag on my visor, somehow it feels like a decent place for it.

    This console has an NFC integrated. I think somewhere in the console would be best if you can work around the carbon fiber.

    I have my tag below the USB ports.

    *slaps head* of course. And this works great. Thanks.

    That's where I actually got the idea from. Unfortunately, no place on the Evannex CCI seems to be a good spot.

    The CCI interferes with that space.
