12v Power, ground and ignition accessory wires?

Hello,

I am installing a GPS device in my 2008 Wrangler. I am in San Diego and have had one Jeep stolen from my driveway and can't afford to lose another.

Where can I find a good source for 12v power, a ground and ignition accessory wires inside the jeep cabin? I want to out the actual device on top of the uconnect radio. This the unit I have:

You can get ground and constant at the radio plug and accessory at the cig lighter.

I'm sure it is under the dash somewhere too but idk where exactly.

Maybe I will look it up

EDIT:
ok so I decided not to be lazy.
12V is yellow/red pin 1 of the gray radio plug
Ground is black pin 12 of the gray radio plug
accessory as I said you can get at the cig lighter. (there is no accessory at the HU, data signal tells it to turn on)

Hope that helps

The unit works with the wires you specified. I have another question.

Does the Yellow cable provide constant power? Or just when the key is inserted and turned to on or started?
The device is installed and working with the ground and power.

What other options are available for on/off functionality in the radio. Space?

Yes the yellow/red is a 12V constant

there is no accessory turn on in the radio area. The cig lighter is the closest one.
