Few things are more frustrating than being miles from a charging point only to find that the item of electronic gadgetry you’re hoping to use is flatter than a ironed hanky. This simple and inexpensive USB socket (£29.00, Nippy Normans) is the answer to all your woes. On the RR it simply plugs into the GPS socket on the harness (ditto all 2004 onwards BMWs), but you can get a straight-to-battery connection, too. Phone, GoPro, GPS etc – all charged at will. Perfect.
