Car Models: 9-5 linear estate
So I bought a Saab today. It's 2005 9-5 LINEAR. However, I've come up against a confusion. I have a dash cam, a sat nav and various things I usually plug in (like a charger for my phone) but I cannot for the life of me see where I should plug them. It's got no cigarette lighter that I can find. Not a problem as I don't smoke, but I need a way to plug in the dash cam and satnav and the plug thingy with the charging points and USBs so where do they plug in?

Try the rear fag lighter socket in between the front seats. Has your 9-5 got the blanking plugs in?

Is the socket hidden under the cover of the ashtray?

Alternatively, being a Linear the socket may have been an option that wasn't taken up by the original purchaser.

Didn't realise that was a possibility - though it is what I have on my 9-3.
