Wonder if it applies to the USB in the console
I do know the ones behind the rear console do but not sure if inside the console does

I guess I may have answered my own question. I left it sticking out of the console last night where I could see it in the dark. This morning checked it and watched it for a good 10 minutes and noticed it would did not come on until I touch the door handle at which time the USB and the red light lite up. So to confirm after a period of time the USB in the center console does power down.

I just found another bit of good news if you could call it that, on the front USB port and inside console USB port if I were using my Carlinkit 2.0 if I plugged into one of these to charge my phone it seemed to confuse Apple Carplay but if I plug it into the USB port on the back side of the center console it does not interfere with the adapter but it’s the USB port on the right side and after looking at the manual it says that USB port is for charging only and does not work with Uconnect 👍🏻

Here is whats in the manual, I just plugged in a long USB cable and tucked it along the console and have it up by the parking brake so now I can plug in my phone to charge if needed and not have it confuse CarPlay plus my wife can do the same with her phone if needed and I can enjoy being cord free for CarPlay

I used both of these ports for carplay until last week. But they both seem to show up as an iPod when pluged in

Hmm maybe I’m lucky, when I plug my phone into the one on the right it just charges and does not affect my wireless car play at all
