Default GPS in Sunglasses Pocket (05 Accord LX Sedan)

Thought I'd give it a go ... Turned out pretty cool.

I think it looks great and quite a space saver. I was wondering how you deal with power, is the cable hidden or do you just pull it out of the sunglasses pocket and run it to your lighter?

I buried the cable under the headliner, down the A Pillar, and then connected it to a cheap USB Car Charger Device (the kind you plug into the 12V Power outlet in your car - or, for you smokers, the cigarette lighter port). I hard wired the USB power adapter directly to the fuse panel (which is just above the driver's kick panel.)
