How many USB ports in 13 F10

I can only find one USB port in my 13 550xi. It's in center console. There is no USB port in glove box or passenger footwell.
If there should be another one can you guys post the picture. I'm unable to find any other. Thanks.

There is no usb port in the glovebox in the 2013 550, only the center armrest.

Edit: and to clarify, I think this is a change for the 550 2013 model year which is why there is so much confusion.

That is correct there is only 1 USB port and it is in the arm rest. There is a 12V port in the passenger's foot well near the net (it is a bit hard to find). I installed the low profile BMW USB chargers in the "cigarette lighter" places.They are pretty cool can convenient for passenger's to use

I'm thinking of ordering this. Looks pretty slim too.
