Hiding Cables

I use the aux port in my cobalt religiously, but think it's so annoying how it's in the center of everything. I already hid my charging cable by running the cable under the e-brake and pulling it back up by the cup holders, and I just leave my phone in my cup holder.

I can't think of anything for the aux cable, though. I was thinking of getting a flat cable and running it through my cup holder, but that would be completely obvious. Is there a way to run the cable behind the head unit and have it come from the ground, up?

There is always a way but is it really worth the time, effort and cost?

True, if it is that big of an issue go that route. I just bunch up the cable and use twist ties to keep things somewhat neat and out of the way.

just run it from the aux input jack down into the slot right under where your dash trim ends on the center console and run your wire where you want it.. this is hard to describe without pics lol

Yeah I'm kinda confused on where you mean, you mind pointing it out on a stock photo from google or something? I can get flat wires, which would allow me to slip it into places that I normally couldn't.

alright i dont know exactly where u keep your mp3 in your car? i keep mine in the shift boot so this is how i got my car set up. i run the wire behind all that plastic so then its not hanging everywhere. keeps the car looking pretty clean w/o wires everywhere.

hope this helps!
