The Easiest Way to Clean Up All the Power Cords In Your Car

You can make your portable GPS look as clean as it would installed at the factory in just a few minutes. Whether you use one of our creative and adjustable FlexPod mounts or are still working with the suction cup, you can still get rid of the clutter of power cords in your car.

Use The Hidden Power Plug to Add a Lighter Socket

To get your device wiring hidden you'll need to start with our hidden power plug. The plug is a socket, just like the cigarette lighter socket already in you car, that comes with quick connect tabs. To install it; you clip the included two blue connectors to the wires running to the lighter socket, then you can plug your device's car power adapter to it instead of the socket on top of the console. The cord to your device can be easily tucked away behind the interior paneling. In most cases you will not need to take anything else apart while still hiding the wires until the reach the device. Your original lighter socket will still be fully operational and free for other needs, or just a better, cleaner look. This product also follows our FlexPod principals, it can be removed just as easily at it was installed without leaving any scars.

    Works Great 5 Star Review

    Makes for a VERY clean interior. I love it.

    Install in a Fiat 500 is harder than they make it out to be. Unless you are contortionist, or a hobbit. It's not by any means impossible, but I recommend stretching before hand.

    Also I found that if you cut then left most lip of the panel under the AC vent, you can run the cord out of the resulting gap. This makes for an even cleaner install, and far less exposed cord.

    iPod power extension core 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jan 2013

    I thought I could use this extension cord to extend the cable from my iPod to the special connector cord in my center panel.
    The Mini sees the iPod normally and recognizes it as an iPod, but this cord must be missing some internal connections.
    When I plug it in, the Mini radio thinks its a direct connection. But, it does supply power.

    So, didn't do the perceived job. :-(

    Does the job 5 Star Review

    Took maybe 15 minutes to install and I have my front power port to plug in other things. Highly recommend if you always use a GPS or non-factory SAT radio.

    Garmin hidden power adapter is power only. It does not have the receiver for traffic information.

    Easy Install 4 Star Review

    Just installed this as part of a Flexpod Garmin GPS mount. Instructions were clear and all parts were included. I had to set the connectors a second time because a live connection wasn't made the first time.
