Maybe this is a stupid question, but does the Ascent have any 12v power ports? You know, the cigarette lighter type. I can't see any in the interior photos. My kid's portable DVD player uses this type of power port, and I'm wondering if we'll be able to use it in the Ascent in the second row.

That was my concern as well when I started looking at them many months ago. Could find nothing on them (12v) at the time so I found an adapter online - plugs into the USB port but the other end is for your 12v items. I was since able to confirm the two in material on the Ascent.


Since the second 12v is in the cargo area and the vehicle is so long - it will be quite a stretch even with a 10' extension cord - barely made it with the Outback because the extension cord doesn't really stretch out to 10'. So I'll probably be using the adapter when traveling, along with the 12v up front.

My Touring has one in the dash, one in the second row, and one inside the rear tailgate.
Where is there a 12V in the second row? I have a touring and can't find it, but I haven't looked very hard either. I have one under the climate control in the dash, and one in the rear by the tailgate. I also have 120V regular house type outlet in my second row next to the USB ports.

Hello, is there a 12v outlet somewhere in the second row of a Limited 8-passenger model?, I have the wireless WiFi charger accessory installed in the dash. I didn't realize the 12v outlet for my Garmin GPS is right above it. I purchased a 12v splitter with a ~18" cord that give a little more room for my iphone to rest on the wifi charging shelf without the larger Garmin power plug under there. I love my Garmin but may have to switch to Waze or Google Maps and use Apple Play app instead. I would prefer not to have to run an extension cord from the back all the way to the front of the car in order to be able to use my Garmin GPS and the cordless wifi charger I had installed.

Alas, no. It's in the cargo area, on the driver's side, just inside the gate, next to the cargo light.

You can pull 12V from the fuse panel below the driver's side dash using a fuse tap. If the 12V plug on your Garmin is not just a plug but a power supply, you'll need to run the 12V through that or get a wire-in power supply for it.

That's how I set up my Garmin dash cam.
