    So I just bought a new Kenwood radio to replace my factory radio on my 03 Tacoma. It has a USB cord that extends from the radio that I would hook my phone up to in order to use Android auto. I bought the radio from Best buy and since I did they will install it for free. So their idea was extending the USB cord in through my glove box which sounds like a horrible idea. I wanted to see if I could purchase a USB port connector that works with the radio and that will fit in one of the empty ports next to my two 12 volt charging ports. Where would I buy that? Appreciate the help guys.

    I'm pretty sure there was a guy who just posted a thread where he 3D printed a USB mount for those exact switch blanks. I believe he even shared the file to print them.
