I want to add 12 volt power for sat radio - 2016 EX-t

I noticed there's no line-in (aux in), but I can likely use a aux to USB converter in my console plug.
I have a sat radio receiver that i move between two previous vehicles and now that one has been replaced with this '16 EX=t, there's no more aux-in.
I'm willing to try the USB to Aux in converter, but if it's a no-go then I'll settle for the FM modulator output of the sat receiver but I'd still like to power the radio from the ignition.
Can anyone tell me what/if a fuse in the cabin is energized with the ignition? I'd use a fuse tap and power the sat radio that way.

thanks, I guess i didn't explain myself well enough.
I want to wire the sat radio dock permanantly to a circuit that is switched with the "ignition".
I don't want to use the cig lighter socket because I use it for two other devices already.
