Using Pontiac Vibe's Unique Power Plug with iPad

Cover hinge won't accept an iPad plug
One of the unusual features I really like about the Pontiac Vibe is the power plug built into the dash. It is turned on and off with the switch next to it. I wanted to see if it would power up my iPad on our vacation, but the large square plug wouldn't fit far enough into the socket with the bottom hinge for the cover. Turns out this problem was easily solved but getting an adapter plug, which fit upside down into the outlet. With that adapter in place, the iPad plug fit fully into the socket and the iPad battery was happily powered up as we drove from one location to another.

Problem solved!

I do enjoy the Vibe!
