2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI: Every Kind of Port Except USB
March 25, 2014
If you need to charge your iPhone, you're golden in the 2014 Volkswagen Passat TSI. There's a dedicated plug right there in the center console. If you want to plug in an MP3 player, there's a port for that, too.
You want to charge your non-Apple phone? Far chance, there's not a USB port to be found anywhere. Kind of odd for a car that's so technologically advanced in most other respects.
Luckily, it's an easy problem to fix. As you can see I just used a cigarette lighter adapter to turn one of the 12V outlets into a USB port. Total cost: $1.50.
