Has anyone run a USB cable from the center console USB port to the front of the console for a phone dock?
I'm having the CarPlay/AA upgrade done this week and want to mount a phone dock somewhere on the dash.
Thanks for that thought. I'll be installing the new hardware this weekend, hopefully. Running a USB cable from the armrest of my Mazda 6 to the little cubby in front of the shifter will make it easier to lay the phone up there without having the cable snaking across the console.
I installed the hub this past weekend. After installing the new USB "hub", I drilled a hole in the bottom of the armrest cubby near one of the lower mounting tabs and ran a USB cable from the hub under the drink holder and forward and brought it up at the front corner of rubber flat area ahead of the shifter. Works great as a place to plug my phone straight into the USB hub. CarPlay works great. Easy install.
