    I like that. I'm not a fan of the exposed USB because it makes it easy for people to see what you have. That's a pretty good solution!

    Great idea. I can't quite tell by the picture, but how did you do that?

    I was thinking about seeing if I could run a usb splitter in the dash and run a new usb port to the center console for an external or ipod or whatever. That way everything would be hidden and there wouldn't be any exposed wires. I just don't think I have it in me to take the new car apart yet.

    Thank you guys!! I made a small hole on the bottom and ran the cable through the
    back of the console so that it come out through the glove box.
    I mainly did it cuz I was tired of seeing lots of cables and the ipod expose
    making it tempting for anyone to break in to my car..

    I specifically use a black ipod connector cable because it doesn't stick out like the white does so it's a bit more "stealthy"

    I too have my ipod connected to my V and don't like it looking all loose there.

    My solution is getting a super small usb drive (16gb) and never disconnecting it.

    Here's the one I ordered: Amazon.com: SanDisk Cruzer Fit 16 GB Flash Drive - SDCZ33-016G: Electronics.

    Will post before/after pics when it arrives.

    In the non-frozen tundra months I also leave my 160GB ipod classic in the car hooked up and inside a nice black neoprene sleeve, you can't even see it or the cable from outside the car.

    I got the 8g version of that and finally filled it up with songs and stuck it in. The way the car's built, you can't even see it.

    It's dark out, I'll take a picture tomorrow

    You guys who do USB drives for music- quick question- will your V play MP4's from the drive or did you have to convert any MP4's into MP3's? Also, have you guys got folders to work? My V won't read folders. My music is a big jumbled mess with no rhyme or reason...

    Nifty idea and I like the idea of the black cable with Tohns setup too! Great mod!

    No it will not play MP4 but I found a cool app which converts an iTunes playlist to an mp3 catalog. If you have take the time to enter album art onto iTunes it inserts the art into the mp3's and shows the art when playing the music.

    The app is called TuneClone and is about $35.

    good idea, I was thinking of doing something similar and using a black cord as well to make it even harder to see. Hate those white cables anywise.

    Nice. Like others have mentioned, I would switch out to black cable for extra stealthiness.

    Also, does anyone know if the USB port has enough juice to power up a USB hub?

    Been thinking about sneaking this hub into the glove compartment or center console in a similar way. Leave a couple of ultra compact USB drives connected and also cables for iPod and iPhone and such.

    Just gave it a shot. The hub works but only recognizes one drive at a time.
