    Does anyone know where I can find port inserts for the unused ports (next to the aux input) on a 2nd gen dash? Specifically a USB port as I just installed an Alpine ILX650 head unit.

    Attached a picture for clarity:

    This might fit I'm not sure. I thought about going a similar route. My truck is older and doesn't have any of those ports. When I got my new head unit I thought about using a similar usb port except it was round instead of rectangular because it would be easy to use a stepped drill bit to insert the the round adapter into then plug the male usb end into the back of my head unit.
    Round one:

    I installed the same Alpine in my 09 in Aug and used this cable: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078LRSZDB/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Works great for Apple and Android. Just got a blank and used a exacto knife and a dremel to make a hole in the blank so the plug fit.
