For 2013-15 models that don’t have 2nd row USB ports, you can easily add them by ordering the Cllena Universal Car USB socket (Amazon), which I find looks the best OEM wise and is backlit in white.


I just tapped into the 12V socket.

Looks much better than my ghetto job. I ended up pushing a short 2-USB port into the lighter socket. I'm sure your version pushes more wattage.

Yes they are two port DC 5V 3.1A USB socket charger, input: 12-24V.

That looks very nice! If I hadn't read your post, I would have just thought the picture was a stock photo of factory production. That looks amazing! Great job!

Golftango, I bought the same USB socket (thanks for the link), any suggestions on how to pull the 2nd row panel off to access the wires? I don't want to break anything assuming you just pull....

Also, I'm assuming you used a rotary tool to cut the hole?

The entire panel pulls off, you'll see the line around the top of the vents, down the sides of the console. Just grab it by the sides and tug. Example:



I used a sharp utility knife to score the cutout, then kept at it. You can use a dremel too.

SUCCESS!!! Only took about 1 hour including setup/install/cleanup. Install was about 15 minutes since I used wire taps, and no soldering.

Thanks again...

Here is mine - remember to measure twice and cut once as you only have one shot at doing it right. :D

I don't have a power outlet in my 2017 QX60 to tap into? Wonder if I can just split the USB. I also just assumed it had CarPlay so shocked and very disappointed it doesn't. I've been looking to do a Raspberry PI in the console since there's audio/video inputs.

I installed an Asus Nexus under my seat that runs Kodi from an attached USB, all connected through those Yellow/Red/White cables. Works well for roadtrips.
