Thanks again for this mod, gonna be doing it soon!
EDIT: Just finished, very quick and easy. My only input is that there is no reason to use a USB mini-adapter if you already have a USB to Mini USB cable in the first place. I would assert that a USB to USB cable would be unusual to have around in the first place.

FYI, just a word of caution regarding USB2. Just in case anyone runs into trouble with USB2 devices, here's my experience.
I added USB2 a while back, and it worked great for about 3 months. Then, it stopped recognizing the USB stick. I thought the stick came loose, so I re-seated it in the connector, and no luck. I thought my USB2 cable went bad, so I plugged the stick into the regular USB port, no luck. I thought the stick went bad, so I replaced it with another, still no luck.
Finally, I removed the USB2 cable all together, and the stick works fine in the regular USB port. I tried the USB2 cable in my computer, and it seemed to be intermittent. So it appears that a bad cable will take our BOTH USB ports.

Hello all, and special thanks to Vrod21. I just got my 2013 SE and added the 2 USB to plug my phone.
My 2 cents:
-To access the ports you just need to pull hard, the pin just comes out and can be reused. (attached is a picture of the pin)
-It is not easy to switch the ports so that the original USB becomes USB#2, the plug has a notch that prevents it form plugging into the other port. I guess it could be done if you get a mini USB extension (male to female)
-The only way I found to change to USB 2 is by voice command, does any other way work?

Having trouble finding where to put the connector.
I pulled the plate off and now I see everything except where to place the connector. Any high res pictures?

update on mine:
I did get the right one from eBay and installed mine and it works great!

KeithLM is correct! Vehicles equipped with MyFord Touch have two USB ports.
The USB2 found in other vehicles is intended for dealership use, but owners have been using it to leave a thumb-drive loaded with music in their car at all times.
If you have any additional SYNC-related questions, give me a shout.
Thanks for the info, KeithLM!

These folks just want an extra port, either for their phone or for an additional audio source. I wanted to use it to charge my phone, but in the end I used the rear power outlet and ran cables tucked under the passenger side of the console up to the front where I mount my phone. That worked out well for me and it avoids having any cables coming out of the console.

|iAmTitanium||Im a bit lost. I have a 12 Ti with Nav and Sync and MFT. I have 2 USB in the center console, they both work and charge phones. What is the benefit of having access to another USB besides the extra port? Also when you say USB2 are you saying a secondary USB or the normal USB ports are 1.1 Versions and the one discovered under the dash is USB 2.0?|
