    Someone showed me a replacement for this blank (see pic below). You pop out the factory black and the replacement has a USB holder on the back so any USB M-F cable will snap in then you pop the blank in and it has a slot in it to plug any USB device in. Any idea where I could find this?​

    I am putting in a Kenwood DDX 514 and I want to bring the USB, Audio and Video connection from the back of the Head unit to the cab so I can have more option. If I install the Kenwood KCA-iP300V iPod Video Direct Cable it will have all the ports used for only the Iphone and I loose the USB optin with this cable.

    My next step is to find a way to bring the 3.5m connection next to it as well. This is a little easier because 3.5 are common.

    Wouldn't having something sticking out there be a potentail for getting hit and broken?

    I installed a new head unit in my daughter's Grand Cherokee a few months ago, and it had a USB plug on the back. I routed the cable into the glove box. She can use it for any USB device, or with an adapter, can play her Ipod. It's out of sight and out of harms way.

    Just my .02.

    Yes but instead of buying the Kenwood system online and installing it myself I went to a local car stereo shop and come to find out its an item that Kenwood makes. So I got the Kenwood unit local and had them install the bracket in the dash. They had several in a drawer so I would assume if you went to a local car stereo dealer they could hook you up. See attached file SNAG-6463.jpg below

    I was happy with the final solution. I did the iphone stand myself.

    I used a keystone wall plate and inserts. The wall plates and RCA, COAX, etc inserts can generally be found at Home Depot, Lowes, Frys, etc.

    I used a scroll saw and sander to cut down the wall plate to a manageable size.

    Below is what I initially had setup. Now it has an RJ45 jack(HAM Radio MIC), Headphone Jack(MP3), and powered USB port.

    Unrelated to topic but I have the DF-Toy. one input is for the 3.5mm jack and the other input is for my HAM Radio.

    The 2011 venza, maybe other models, has a usb/aux port both on 1 of the switch panels. Just go to toyota.com, select Venza, and interior accessories.

    Little late but maybe it will help someone next time.

    I had one of those before using the tundra usb/aux. It is very good I had it in the dash below one of the A/C vents. I sold it to someone here and I think he put it in the 12V socket below the A/C controls.

    There is another one which has both stereo and usb input, but I don't have the link for it.

    Check here....but this is just for charging capability. Not sure if that's what you're interested in. Also, you can find those USB ports on Amazon. Hope this helps.

    Check out my build.
    I used an AUX/USB port from a newer truck. My buddy traded with me.
