Use the outlet in the center console instead. I use it and just run the cord up to where the phone sits in the coin tray thing.

I was fortunate to already have purchased this charger when I was on business travel (forgot mine at home).

It has a swivel top...works great in my Acadia and doesn't interfere with the forward cup holder.

The ampege isn't as high as the stock model for my phone, but it does the job.

I don't mean to be a jackass but obviously you didn't when you test drove or looked at the car.

I think others offered up some good solutions.

I use my regular home charger and plug it into the 120volt game outlet in the back of the center console.

Yeah, it's the fault of the $40K SUV, not the $30 charger. ::)

Geeze! Theres so many **** power options on this car I cannot even think how to use them all. My wifes Mazda main and only power is located below the center console. You have to plug it in and then somehow run the cord up to the phone. As there is no opening for the cord to run, the center console will not close as the cord is running through the gap between the top and body of the console. Woo Hoo! Japanese genious engineering!

You guys are mean and hateful. Did you ever think the other charger in the

center console is being used by my kids and their games?

I just find it hard that a 40K car has something as simple as that getting in the way!

AND NO I DIDN'T TEST DRIVE IT...IT WAS A GIFT FROM MY DH - HE DID

I could get mean and hateful here about why HE didn't notice it but I'm above that.

Sorry I posted it. Thanks to all who were helpful and nice.

There's one on the back of the center console for the rear seat passengers (games, DVD player, etc.), but there's also one inside the console, below the coin holder tray. I didn't even notice it was there until we had the car a couple of months. I just thought you might have overlooked this one as I did.

Thank you so much. I hadn't noticed this one either!
