I added one to the side of the heater and on the underside of the bulkhead. This allows me to run the leads to satnav / phone through the back of the glove box and out of sight.

There are ones that are temporary that you connect directly to the battery and have the socket come forward into the cockpit. Useful for those that don't want a permanent installation or for those that need it only on longer trips for GPS or phone. https://www.amazon.com/NOCO-GC018-Socket...ords=12V+socket

Of course when my 1992 plus 4 was built people were not gadget mad. I fitted a 12v socket to the rear bulkhead directly from the battery but put in an inline fuse. From this socket I can run sat nav or what ever but also connect my battery conditioner.

12 V socket


this one too can do the job but you can also fix it head down back on the dashboard so he is out of site smile

In my previous car , a 4/4, there wasn not one fitted. I fitted one behind the dash screwed to the ash frame on left hand (passenger) side. I used the feed for a radio ( none in the car! ). An inline fuse put in too. A pretty simple job.
On my current ( no pun intended!) car there is one in the glovebox. I intend replacing it with one under the dash as it is more accessible then. It will have a usb socket as well.

Mine is just in front of the hand brake so not very useful when the sat nav is plugged in ...

Mine is in front of the handbrake as well so not ideal for the sat nav as Peter says, my 2004 was on the inside right hand side of the the glovebox but well hidden and used to vibrate loose often at incredibly inconvenient times, losing the power on an autoroute without noticing until I missed the junction was one of the most memorable, and my 1981 didn't bother with such modern innovations.
