I'm looking at a deck with a USB connection in the rear, and I'd really like to be able to get to it from someplace other than the glove box, like the front dash, perhaps? I mean really!

Is there a ready made USB extender that would allow me to "glue" it to the dash (there is plenty of room) so that I can plug in my USB stick or Ipod?


I expect I'd drill a .75" hole in the dash, and thread it through, either screwing it on, or applying an adhesive to hold the critter in place, and that it would look like a USB port in my dash..

Thanks,
Rick

Obviously, I can have a cable sticking out from between the seats, or out from under the dash, or in the glove box. But there are aesthetics to consider. I am no longer single and 22, and cables hanging out ain't in "the plan". Obviously this is not a technical issue, this is an issue of wanting it to look as stock as possible, including no wayward cables hanging out under the dash:-)

Looks like I may have to make my own adapter.

you can get all the parts online and make it look pretty stock, just make sure any wires you cut are sheilded when you put them back
