    Default 12volt feed on top of dash? (possibly a question for Kman!)

    Hi all,
    I'm sick and tired of having phone charger & sat nav cables trailing all over the car, what I'm thinking of doing is putting a 12 volt socket on the top of the dash, what I'm wondering is is there enough room to run a cable from the socket by the ash tray up and behind the radio to the top of the dash, say, somewher near the centre speaker?

    Anybody had their dash out that can tell me?

    Thanks in advice.

    Johnny Kebab.

    Personaly I dont think having a socket on top of the dash will look very nice. I'd run a multisocket extension behind the dash to where the center speaker is, then feed the plugs for charger and nav through the speaker grill. It will look neater being hidden imo. You could hard wire it to the cig socket or have the plug near the original socket and store it in the cubby hole when not needed.
