Default Uconnect usb

I recently upgraded my stereo to the 430n rbz radio and added uconnect to my truck. I hate the usb in the glovebox. I am curious where you have moved it to or placed itif you've done anything with it. I bought the GM USB connector and will try to replace the switched cigarette lighter power outlet with the GM cigarrete lighter socket usb adapter. Anyone else tried to do this? Anyone thought of it? The gm adapter has a small usb female on the backside.

Thanks.

i got the GM usb today and it went in like a champ. the project took me fifteen minutes and no more ipod cord in the glovebox! I removed the switched power outlet and replaced it with the GM usb connector that looks like the power outlet. I like this mod am hoping someone else has done this/will do it. very simple and easy.

i use my cigarette lighter socket to plug an LED light into for night driving
the green light in the overhead console is about as worthless as tits on a boar hog

That's a nice setup. Do you have the PN for it? Where did you order it from and how much was it? Thanks
