    It seems that I can only charge my iPhone with the USB port closest to the passenger side and not the driver side.

    I havent had my car for long, so I was wondering what others have experienced.

    Thanks!

    I am charging my iPhone 5 with the driver's side USB plug. You can try rebooting your center screen (push both scroll wheels together for a while). I have noticed that when the center screen reboots, the iPhone makes the bleep sound which indicates it's plugged in. So the USB power is controlled by the center screen processor.
