Awesome. Thanks for the info. That should fit. But, if it doesn't, you could just plug a regular cable out of sync usb port and then plug it into that. There's plenty of space back there to hide excess wiring too.
WAIT WAIT!! That adapter's molded plug is too big!
Remember, the USB-Mini plug is recessed inside a wiring harness clip. While 'regular' USB-mini cables have a plug and molded boot on the end that could be whittled down a bit, this one flares out (to accommodate the USB-AF end) too quickly, and I'm afraid whittling that down will get you into componentry too quickly (not sure how much plastic you'd go through before you hit metal).
You may want to get a very short USB-MiniA cable with a small molded plug, to best accommodate the fit.
Sorry for being MIA recently, I've been swamped at work and doing some 12-hours days, so I haven't been posting and replying as much as I'd like to be. But I wanted to make sure I headed this off before anyone bought anything.

I'm willing to bet it's Mini, not Micro. However, Monoprice has such great prices you could buy both. Your second link looks good. I would try to get one without the Ferrite core as there may not be enough room for it. It shouldn't be needed anyway. Let us know how it goes!
If you used a cable like the one below (link), and dremeled a small square in the glove box, you could make the second USB port look very OEM. You would need to use a second cable to convert USB A to Mini B.
I just ordered this cable Panel Mount USB and with one of these USB to Mini and one of these USB Coupler I'll get this mounted in my glove box and it will hopefully look all nice and pretty. Then I'll just leave my thumb drive with all my music on it in the glove box and have the extra one in my center console for whatever I need.
Can someone please clarify the connectors for me?
Is it a micro USB (like on a Galaxy S3) or a mini USB (like on a GoPro)?
I have everything else to put my thumbdrive in the glovebox, and have found the port, I just want to make sure I get the right adapter cable.
