Question Where do you connect aftermarket GPS?

I did not opt for the iDrive option. I want to buy a GPS/Satnav when the car arrives (never owned one of these fancy things) where does it plug in? I thought they usually plug into the cigarette lighter socket, but the 120i vert I was in just had a blanking plug in there. Is the 135i like this or am I missing something? Where does it go????

As far as I know there is only one socket under the arm rest of a 135. You only get a cig lighter when you opt for a smoking pack. Which means that your GPS power cable will have to stretch from under the armrest to your windscreen.... rather ungainly IMO.
