Lack of outlets (or cigarette lighter plugs) in front of Georgetown?

We are looking at new Georgetowns and I'm noticing just one single cigarette lighter plug up front. Am I overlooking another one perhaps? Seems a bit limiting...if I'm charging my cell phone, and my wife Iwants to charge hers as well...and wants to be powering the laptop as well (or whatever) ??? I know you can buy a splitter, but seems like there would be at least 2 outlets up front? Not a deal breaker, but just saying....

Not sure which 12 volt plug you ar etalking about?
YOu do have one in the dash array but you also have one where the TV antenna amp is located. Depending on what model you are looking at.
My 378TS the additional plug is located in the back of the upper compartment where the passenger seat is. This is where my cables and DVD player is located.

Adding 12 volt plug is not a major issue as you can install one in the future for a few bucks. You can also buy a multi head adapter to plug into the one in the dash at Walmart.

Good luck

In My 378 there is a 110 outlet under the dash on the passenger side as well as the two
12v outlets as mention above. I also have a 12 v splitter that adds 3 more 12 v outlets up front. Another 11 outlet on the side of the fireplace.
Seek and ye shall find.

My issue is the lack of 110 in the kitchen area. In our 329 we do not have one plug on or by the countertop. I have to run an extension cord from the media center. Very silly.

Yikes, bummer on that. We are looking specifically at the 351's. Anyone with a 351 can to comment on outlet placement in kitchen (and in general for that matter).

Thx!

For 110V duplex outlets.......

Check the underside of any cabinetry in the kitchen area.........we have two 110V outlets there. I added a multiple outlet to the 110V outlet under the dash in front of the co-pilot. There's another on the underside of the cabinet behind the co-pilot seat. I also added one of my own on the wall behind the driver's seat.

For 12V outlets......

Factory equipped, there was one in the dash near the radio, and like Iggy mentioned there is one where your TV boost button is near your amplifier and such.

Installing multipliers from auto accessory shops is a quick way, as long as the total draw doesn't get too high. Installing your own 12V outlets is a piece of cake. Just tap into any 12V source wires on the underside of the dash........some are "live" all the time, some are controlled by the ignition key...............your choice.

Our 2013 351 has 1 power outlet in the kitchen - it's upside down under the top cabinet - admittedly NOT the most convenient location.
