Hi Steve,

I think you can buy a widget that has two or more USB sockets that fits into the power point.  My son has one in his X type.

Regards,

Peter.

hi

you can get the plug in ones that convert the cigarette socket in to two usb, there on ebay and cheap

I fitted usb sockets into my glove box and arm rest, so I can plug items in and there out of sight

cheers

Joe

This is a job I have intended to do for some time (I did it in my previous Merc, see below). To me the Jag ashtray lends itself to such modification better than the Merc but until I take the whole thing to bits I won't be able to confirm that. Incidentally the two into one widget Peter mentions above won't fit (I have one.....)

Thanks everyone for your replies. I have the plug in adaptors, but wanted something more permanent. I had hoped that someone produced a unit that replaced the whole ashtray area.

I have also looked at fitting the USB in the glove box, but I have mine full of CDs, yes I know, I could use the mp3s from my phone instead.... Also I want to assist the Jag satnav by using WAZE apps etc from my phone, and so wanted a USB closer to the dash.

hi,

If its ash tray you want it, then I'd buy a second hand ash tray and have a play

the vaneer just unclips, lift front edge, I use one of those plastic trim tools, then push towards the dash and it comes off, so thats not a issue

get one and see whats your options, possible cut the cigarett socket back and fit a new piece of black plastic, so you have a blank panel to start with

then get some 12v usb sockets to add, possibly a 12v aux socket and or even a voltmeter

there loads of options just mix and match

cheers

Joe
