Odd question regarding USB port (2013 Focus SE)
 
I did a search of the forums and didn't find anyone else asking this question. It is bothersome to me but perhaps I'm just nit-picky. When you connect an iPod or phone via the USB port, did anyone else notice that you can't close the console without seriously pinching the USB cable? Does anyone have suggestions or a work-around for this? I just upgraded from a Mazda 3, which had a groove for an aux cable right under the area where the console snaps in and it was great design.

I'm just hard to please I suppose lol any suggestions would be great :)

There is a groove - I can post a picture if you'd like...

Sorry for taking so long, I've been busy moving and stuff...

Here is a photo from my vehicle. My center console doesn't look like yours :( Sorry about the finger that got in the way. The area right below my cable looks like a groove however that is where the lid handle snaps in and pinches the usb cable.

Run it out the back side. [thumb]

Hey Ron,
My console looks like yours. It's not ideal, but I just run the cord off to the side. I find that the cover doesn't really pinch it. I haven't thought about it too much, but an alternative would be nice.

R to the O to the N and then
I say Swanson's got swag the size of Big Ben clock!
