phone cradle/USB outlet

Has anyone installed a Phone holder and/or USB or "cigarette" socket on their GS?

Or have recommendations on what to look for.

Thanks!

I had this USB port installed like this, connected to the lights so it switches off automatically, and have a RAM X mount on the left of the handlebars. Works for me to use my phone for navigation.

Check out my posts and photos in the following thread: https://www.g310rforum.com/forum/169-...-location.html


I installed my USB socket in a nice discrete location beside the key cylinder. I also use a quad lock mount and case (best solution IMHO)

I wound up ordering these from Amazon. I'll let you know how they work out.

That's the USB port I have ordered. It shall be mounted next week at the first service. I need the Part for my cellphone as a route guidance system.

The good thing about this plug is that if it's connected directly to the battery, you can attach a trickle charger directly to it as well.
