Usb hardwire mod:

Bought this at O'Reilly Autoparts

Split the plastic case and cut the 12v adapter portion off

Used a soldering gun to remove the 12v hardware and soldered in the positive (where the nipple for 12v was) and negative (two places on either side), running the two negatives into a connector, with one negative wire coming out of the opposite end and shrink wrapped.

Sanded all four sides of the remaining square portion of the platic until i got a snug fit, where i popped out the console tab.

Using a terminal tester, i found the positive wire on the 12v wire harness (center wire on my car), spliced the positive wire there and the spliced the negative wire into the remaining larger gauge wire. Reinstalled the console. Final product.
