I generally love my '09 RAV4, but one really annoying feature is that they built one of the cup holders DIRECTLY in front of the cigarette lighter....where, of course, I plug in my adapter to power my GPS unit and cell phone. The result...I frequently cause the adapter to lose power whenever I pull my coffee cup out of the holder and bump the end of the adapter.
So...does anyone know of a company that sells a very compact (i.e., short) cigarette lighter adapter. I've tried dozens of Google searches, but they only turn up units that are as tall or taller than the one I already own. I'm beginning to wonder if it's time to mod something up.
And yes, I could draw power directly off the wiring in the dashboard, but would rather leave my car in original condition (as much as possible).
