just go down to your local audio shop or best buy or whatever you have around you and get a female 12v plug. they should have ones that just have a positive and negative wire coming off the back. then just wire it up behind the dash and you can run all your wires out of site. just make sure you tape up your charger and the outlet to prevent any metal contact behind the dash and ensure everything stays plugged in.

If you don't want to do it your self. Have a audio shop or best Buy install bay install a 2nd female cigarette lighter.

Best Buy

No found them OK !!!

I read the above to say there was a cup holder under the armrest, I didnt think this was the rear cup holder... Maybe thats what was meant.

If you do NOT have OEM navigation, you have 2 cup holders next to each other by the e-brake. You have 2 cup holders next to each other behind the armrest. The last cup holder is directly underneath the armrest. You push on the clip on the driver's side of the storage area, the clip pops out, and BAM, you have another cup holder.

Well mine must broken and or gone.

The two by the e-brake are missing the insert as well.

Oh well the joy of buying a used car !!!
