Has anyone been successful in adding an additional USB C port? I would like to close the cover and just have a wire snake up to the top of the dash.

For additional clarity:

1. I would like to retain the center stack USB C.
2. This new USB C would need to work with CarPlay.

Thanks for the help.

Both USB ports have identical Mini USB interface behind the cover, as you might see at 17:18 in So, just get or build a Mini USB Female to USB C cable, plug it in place of the non-C socket, and route it where you need to.

Thank you very much for this insight.

Did you do it? How did it

Did you do it? How did it turn out?
I got an adapter and plugged in behind the dash. Did not work. I don't know if the block the mini usb plugs into behind the dash is providing power back to the usb port to the radio.
