Check your trunk on the 2012/13s:

"Now you can connect a compatible Apple® iPod® player or other USB mass storage device, such as flash drives that contain MP3, WMA6 or AAC music files, and control them through the Gold Wing’s audio controls."

if you're referring to a 12 volt plug, the 2012 doesn't come with one as standard equipment. It does have the USB connection in the trunk.

What type of accesory? If it's a music player you really don't have to. Instead you can put your music on a flash drive and plug it into the USB connector in the trunk. Then you can control it using the radio controls aux function.

We use it to play our ipod on and to charge our cell phone. newer phones come with two different connectors to charge with, one regular wall plug and a usb. If you don't have the usb just go to radio chack and pick up a usb. just tell them what you're doing.

Inside the fairing up and left of the left hand glove box are two connection points for Aux sound input and Accesory power. They are in a little black rubber boot, a 2 wire power and 3 wire Auxiliary audio input. You can order both from EC (Electronic Connections) or Wing Stuff and install in 30 minutes. The Aux sound wire is a 3.5 mm stereo plug that every portable sound gadget uses for it headphones plug. You might opt to get a USB plug in for the Accessory power (cigarett lighter style) socket while you're shopping. Why these are not both standard is a mystery. You only need a drill and two bits to prep the glove box, instructions are easy and unless you drop one of the re-useable popout plastic revets you'll be done in nothing flat and enjoying both of these simple upgrades.
