The 2013 Accord has a square-shaped cup holder (photos below). Are there any cup holder mounts that will fit this and have a solid snug install with no wobble or flimsiness? All the ones online are round. This would be to mount a mobile scanner like a Uniden BCT15X or BCD996P2 which have some weight to 'em.

that is so awkward...there is no reason they couldnt have designed round holders...you might be able to get a handheld mount in there..i use a RAM suction cup and arm assm...that is if it will fit....the ol round plug in a square hole thing

If you're handy with a welder, and like diy, I'd recommend going to a junkyard or steel scrap yard and see if you can find either I-Beam that'll fit or even part of a car frame. Hitch assemblies would be pretty good and probably near the right size to fit in there snug. Depending where you go, they might not even charge you

Those scanners are relatively large and heavy. I would think that any solution that puts them "in the air" will be difficult to engineer without affecting the vehicle interior. Isn't there some location where you could fabricate a more stable mount? Is there an adequate cubby space forward of the shifter?

I must have missed the part about the OP wanting to put a mobile radio in the cup holder. What about removing the cup holder from the console and building your own mount and an escutcheon out of ABS plastic?

Pull that plastic cover off the transmission hump and see what kind of space you're working with down there. I don't see any realistic way of fitting something the size of a 15X or 996PS in there without some cutting and/or custom fab. cheif21 is on the right track - there's likely a void behind the coin tray area just in front of the shifter.

Juice boxes. It's a millennial thing.
Come on now, be nice to millennials - they will be serving you your juice box in a few years... :p

Well everything it’s designed to hold is round (cups and bottles). So I’m sure a round cup-holder mount would work just as well as if it was round.
