Easiest way to get power to iConnect unit

I want to put an iConnect unit:

Connects2 iConnect iPod Docking Connector

...in line with the connects2 box already installed in my Civic - this will enable me to charge the iPod in use and give me a better connection than the rubbishy headphone jack (I've already checked with In Car Express that this will work).

Trouble is, I need 12v DC to power this device - any idea where the nearest source of this is (the box will be installed under the HU in front of the gearbox)? Should I run something from the back of the head unit, or is there 12V I can pickup from somewhere else nearby? That fat brown connector or the two white connectors one above the other both look like good candidates, if only I had a wiring diagram...

Good idea - maybe I can. I'll check out the wire lengths and see if I can run it off the contacts for the cigarette lighter.
