Does Anyone Else Hate The USB Port, SD Slot and Cig Plugs Location?

I had how it's deep in a "pocket". Hassle reaching and finding it in there. I wish it was more shallow and then the pocket can actually be used for something.


Also, I had the way the glove box. You cant fit anything in there, or you wont be able to close the box.

Re: Does Anyone Else Hate The USB Port, SD Slot and Cig Plugs Location?

I'm fine with the glove compartment and the storage area in the center counsel. I did use the USB in the 2011 center arm rest storage to charge my iPhone via the USB cable on occasion....but with no USB connection in the 2014 center arm rest storage, I guess I'll either have to use the USB in the center counsel or get a cigarette charger to use in the center arm rest storage. It is a bit odd that they eliminated the USB in the center arm rest area though. No hate here.... LOL

No hate here.

Dan,

The USB ports the back of the console are for charging only. There is a notch in the right front of the tray in the console to pass the wire through.

Re: Does Anyone Else Hate The USB Port, SD Slot and Cig Plugs Location?

I'm perfectly happy with the location of these items on my particular JGC. (no SD, obviously, since I have a MY12, but I wouldn't use it anyway) The storage compartment handles everything I want it to just fine...some chewing gum, the wife's Carmex. Important stuff you know.

Re: Does Anyone Else Hate The USB Port, SD Slot and Cig Plugs Location?

Those connections are a little bit deeply recessed in the 2014 making it a minor PITA to connect, but there could be worse problems. Not a huge deal for me.

Re: Does Anyone Else Hate The USB Port, SD Slot and Cig Plugs Location?

Use the SD and USB slots all the time. Took a little getting used to at first, but no problem now. The glovebox isn't huge, maybe that's why they call it a "glove" box. The storage space in the bottom of the center console is cavernous, I keep all kinds of crap in there.

Re: Does Anyone Else Hate The USB Port, SD Slot and Cig Plugs Location?

If I'm being honest I do find the recessed USB difficult to reach. I use it all the time since you don't get full function with the iphone via bluetooth. But then again anything beats that little usb cover that had that latch on it that was impossible to put on straight and kept falling off.

Re: Does Anyone Else Hate The USB Port, SD Slot and Cig Plugs Location?

I like the location of the USB and cigarette lighter plugs just fine on my '14. The cubby underneath the radio stack is deep enough so that I can keep a charger plugged in and connected to an iPhone and still be able to close the lid and hide it all (including the charging cable). Great design IMHO.

Re: Does Anyone Else Hate The USB Port, SD Slot and Cig Plugs Location?

No. I like out of sight.

Regarding storage (glove box, etc.)...Between glove box, center console arm and media areas, and door pockets (likey the extra drink bottle slots) I have ample room for all my doo-dads.

I like that the center arm rest (in my 2012), has the pass-through on the passenger side of the seat. I can charge the phone and access pandora, etc.

NOPE --- In my 2014 the only USB connection is in the center console below the radio touch screen in that little cubby. I do NOT have a USB connection in the center arm rest (my 2011 had one in the top try, my 2014 doesn't). The only connection in the center arm rest is a constantly on cigarette adapter while the center console below the radio has: the aux audio input, SD, USB and 'ignition on' cigarette adapter.
