Yes that’s exactly what I was thinking about. I play most of my music via the USB port have my phone on Bluetooth and data.  But no where to plug it in to charge with the stick in the USB port. Was hoping it wouldn’t * * * * things up with two items in one USB port.

It shouldn’t mess it up, not if it is just for charging the second one anyway. For the price worth trying it I guess. Would be nice to hear the result if you do.

Could it see it when on its own? Just asking as the file type could be a problem unless it worked before.

i have a couple of these under the centre console

spliced into the 12v power plug wiring using scotch locks, then the usb cable(s) can be fed under the arm rest it is quite tricky but there are gaps on either side under the arm rest that the cables can get through best using the passenger side gap so as not to get in the way of the handbrake
