If you end up buying a thumb drive like I did to save precious console space dont get one where the tip slides out of the body without measuring it for clearance with the console lid while extended. In my case I already had a dedicated 32 gig thumb drive like that from my last car and plugged it in only to find the lid wouldn't close. Since I have no other use for the drive I took careful measurments and cut the tail end off while it was extended. Put some tape over the end just to keep anything from possibly falling in and called it a day. Only took a minute and salvaged the drive from being tossed in a drawer to never be seen again but if your buying you may as well get one that fits from the get go.
