This is the presentation deck given in San Antonio by the various engineers. Javier Mota's YouTube Channel - Autos 0-60 - posted a number of videos of these various presentations (Thank you Javier!!)

You can find all the clips on his channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/autosjaviermota/featured

They show the 82 Quart cooler with wheels inside in-bed truck.
They also show Wendy's food bag on sliding center tray tech locker they call it in Pilot. This use to be our fat comfortable armrest spot:smile:

I sent this to my Honda dealership, doubt they will be interested as their head is usually in another place in their anatomy where it is very dark.

I've seen a handful of complete post regarding the fold-down armrest. I guess it's a different strokes thing because I think they're great.
I was 100% against the fold down armrest but have warmed to the them. Many always say the space is a Purse holder. But you can use it for fast food bag as shown Wendy's food bag. You can use it for eating or to store other things on top while driving. They got rid of the shelf over on passenger side. My concern was they will break get loose having had them in 1993 Dodge Caravan many years ago.

My 2006 Highlander has armrests similar to these. 150k miles and no issues, even with my father in law having the car for most of its life, and he isn't exactly a svelte individual.

We actually love the way these armrests are. They are the same as the old CRV's. The wife loves them because they leave a large flat center area for her purse or any other items. I think they are great, like the above poster said, different strokes for different folks.
