first thing I did is remove center console. 2 screws at the front sides and 2 at the back side. These are under little covers

Then I lifted the console out, three spring clips around the front to pull carefully out. Disconnect the cig lighter, solder on the leads to the back of the lighter spades m,aking sure the connector can go back on.

feed the lead behind all the pedal bits and tye wrap it out the way you dont want it coming down while driving. Then I attached a ci lighter socket on the end with a 5 amp in line fuse and tye wraped it up above the fuse area so it can be accessed with the panenls refitted. Sorry this pic is a bit fuzzy.

You then have to rebuild your car!!!
The end result is worth it the bit of cable you see in this pic is the only exposed cable there is, and I can disconnect it without taking the car apart if I need to.
This is my PPC/phone/sat nav. O2 XDAIIi

Can I ask why you picked up your 12v from the console rather than directly from the fusebox which is where you located your female cigar socket?

I just wanted to keep all the cig sockets on one circuit. There is going to be another on the other side soon

Had a spare cigar socket fitted in the glove compartment, powers mobile and satnav. and can't be seen from outside.

This was done by the FOC dealer before I collected it

I followed the first 3 photos but then I drilled a little hole in the under armrest storage area; fed the wire through there and I have 4 spare cig sockets in that area for a selection of my chargers.

Which is exactly the same routing that I am considering.

I have a TomTom with spoken camera alerts that I intend to locate and power from within the armrest area.

That will avoid having to use the fragile ciggy socket and also avoid loose wires.

Proper Job :)

Excellent, thanks.

Not collecting car till Saturday but it's one of the jobs on the list for a later date.

I've already got the TomTom One alternative mounting kit which provides loads of possibilities and I don't need to mount the TomTom in any line of sight as I solely intend to use the verbal camera warnings setup.
