Where did you route your Ipod cable?

I'll be getting a new aftermarket head unit shortly and I'm a little on the fence as to where I'd like to route the Ipod/accessory cable (i.e. to the center console, glove box, loose change cubby by the steering wheel... etc. ). Just wondering where you all have yours routed and if you have any advice. Pictures would be appreciated!

Mine is in the glove box. Mainly so I don't sit there and look at it trying to change songs. Also, I leave my phone in their plugged in to my USB ports. Just run the blue tooth and avoid getting into wrecks or tickets for texting/driving!

This is what I need to do, I have an extra Ipod. I like having my calls and GPS from my phone come through the radio though. The GPS just interrupts the music when it needs to tell me to turn.

I actually have an additional hard drive in my glove box I run music/movies off of. The unit I got has 2 USB ports, and IPod port, and a headphone jack. I love being able to run as much stuff as I can... just wish it was more powerful of head unit.

A hard drive as in, actual USB detachable hard drive? I didn't even think of trying that, good idea. My USB plug doesn't register my android phone as an mp3 device, it tries to open the files that I have on it, but won't play music.

Yes, actual USB detachable hard drive. 500gb hard drive that sits in the glove box with movies and music. Takes a bit to load up sometimes, but it works like a champ when started.

Maybe not enough juice to spin the drive? May need to find a solid state (no spin) HD for it?

...or a shorter USB cable, sometimes a disk just needs a bit more power then a long cable can supply

According to the USB cabling, you can have up to a 5m long cable before it gets too slow. 3m is the prefered amount for USB 2.0. Now, USB 3.0 can actually only be 3m long as well, but it operates upwards of 5gb/s. I just wish I could upgrade my HU to run USB3.0 instead of the 2.0... but I might have to find a better way to power up the HU.

Not talking about cable length as it relates to data signals, but rather that the 5V 0.5A power line in the USB cable will lose amps as it gets longer. Shortening the cable keeps the amp loss down. I had this happen on an older Pioneer HU with a 3.5" 20GB disk. Disk would not spin up with 6' cable, but dropping down to a 2' allowed the disk to spin up.

I need to pull the HU back out to see what kind of cables mine are. I think mine are hardwired in though, which will be my problem to change them. But, they are only 4ft at the max? I really wish I could upgrade the whole thing to USB3.0, but that would take too much work.
