Where is Connect+ Phone Docking Located?

I'm racing to get my ducks in a row before an allocation freeze on December 5. I'm getting some mixed information about where the phone dock is located with the 718 Connect+; perhaps there is some kind of misunderstanding involved. I was hoping to clear it up here.

The configurator led me to believe that the phone gets docked in the storage area inside the center arm rest. The salesperson contends that depiction is incorrect, and that the phone is connected in the glove box.

Could someone who has Connect+ please tell me which is correct? And, if it is in the center arm rest storage area - how much room does it take up? How much storage space do you lose?

Many thanks,

The 718 Owners Manual specifically states that to take advantage of the smartphone-integration features of BOTH Porsche Connect and Porsche Connect Plus, the USB port in the center console must be used. On 718s, the USB port in the glove box is only good for (very slow) device charging, iPod integration, and for data transfer to PCM4; it is not enabled for smartphone integration.

This page in the online 718 manual should help clarify things, and lead to other parts of the manual that talk about the PCM system in general:
