Nice Accessory

In one of the threads recently, I found a european supplier, BergvillFX. Among other things they are a supplier of the Continental radios.

But what I got was a $12 USB cigarette power adapter that fits my '01 socket perfectly. Now on longer trips no more battery pack to keep Google maps up and running all day long.

If interested, you can find it here.

No affiliation, just a happy customer.

Also a customer of Bergvill, a nice custom-made radio adapter for my 964. Tore is a great guy.

I shoved one of these into the empty socket on the left side, powered from the cigarette lighter with a few inches of wire and a pair of taps. I had to do a tiny bit of filing to get it to fit, but it's not going anywhere.

I bought one of those for my daily driver, about 3 weeks ago. Good fit.

They have these at Wal Mart for a couple bucks! I have had one in my car for a long time. Works great!
