    I bought the SR model and just have one USB port that I think it tied to the radio. If I wanted to add some more USB charging ports that are high amp in the switch location is there any recommended solution that make it look stock, or at least neat?

    I dont think there are any in the console. I walked out the door so all the cool options are missing. I plan to add more USB and then heated seats. Maybe some lights.

    I believe he means the center console that you store things in. The box that separates you and your copilot. Should have 1 in there

    Nope, there are non in there. I know most of the specs I looked at mentioned two USB ports in center console but the one I bought only mentions the 1.

    But either way I want to add at least two more in the dash as I have a GPS that needs to not be hidden. Are there any good charges that would fit in the blank switch spot or look stock if I dremel out a hole. I also want to add a USB port to the back of the console for rear seat passengers but this would be surface mounted so really any would work.

    What I guess I really should have asked was.

    There are a ton of 2.1 amp Toyota usb chargers on eBay that seems to fit where the blank switch would fit. Anyone have one with more amps or a known source for their that they like

    Did have to drill out the original hole, I used used a step bit.

    The Part is very good quality, charges my devices faster than a home wall socket.
