    Hi, this is my first post to the Forum, and I have 3 questions for all of you tundra savvy people out there, I apologize if this has been previously answered:

    -I have had my tundra for about a month now, and decided it was time to upgrade the dashboard a bit, Im adding a Dual USB port mount in one of the four dashboard spaces, and I was wondering, is there a better place behind the dashboard to plug the port? I included pictures of the mount, its a toyota part, and it has the end bare cables, but it also has a plug that seems to belong somewhere specifically, any guidance is appreciated, before I simply splice the cigarrette lighter and connect from there

    -secondly, in removing the blank covers, I found out that the one to the right of the auxiliar port, actually had a female plug sitting behind it, after scouting the internet for a while, I found out that the 2 far blanks are for heated seats, but for the life of me I still cant figure out what the center right port is for.

    I included another picture, and any help is appreciated.

    -third, is there an after market adapter that would allow me to connect the toyota AUX plug to an actual 3.5 AUX Jack? I replaced the stock stereo for a Pioneer, and even though it has bluetooth, it also has a 3.5 port, seems like a waste not to connect it.

    so, I did some reading today, as I suspected, the two extremes are for the seat heaters/coolers, and I found something interesting, the center right one has a diamond shaped thing that says "toyota security" any idea what that is for?

    so, I finished my install. I wired the USB directly to firewall cables, and zip tied everything behind the console, should stay neat until the end of times. WhatsApp Image 2018-10-17 at 9.49.37 PM.jpg

    as far as the toyota security thing, it seems to belong to a RS3000 or a RS3200 OEM Alarm Interface, and I just dont care for that system. will be installing a compustar or viper remote keyless system soon.

    as far as the 3.5 aux cable goes, I'll have to settle for Bluetooth for a while, I haven't find a proper harness to convert from OEM aux to 3.5 aux.
