12V Cigarette lighter locations for dash camera

Hi Everyone,

Just wondering for the owners of G20, can anyone verify are there two 12V cigarette sockets(front centre console and one for the rear passengers)? or three(last one in the trunk)?


Secondly, does anyone know if any of the 12V cigarette lighter sockets are always on or turn off when the vehicle is off?


Thanks!

Yes, those are the locations. As far as I know, at least the front outlet is always on unless it shuts down after a certain period of time.

I wonder if the "secret" one in the passenger footwell under the glovebox is still there like in the F30. That's where I have my radar detector plugged in and I love it.

Yes, I hope that it's there too on the M340, I use that one also in my F30.

My 2020 M340 does not have it in the foot well. Had to run my Camera USB wire all the way in the back.

So can anyone verify that the 12V socket in the trunk or rear passenger 12V socket switches off after a certain time as well or are both always on?

Hi

I have had a UK E91,E91 LCI ,F31 Proff Media, and currently have a G31. All had cigarette lighters in various places, but all turned off after a certain period of time.
I know this because I camp a lot and would sometimes have to lock and unlock the door several times to charge my phone.
I canít see them changing it for the G20 in the UK at least.
