Have you installed any additional USB ports for charging devices in your Spark? I have a 2015 Spark 1LT manual and have been thinking about putting in a couple dash-mounted USB ports. I found a few aftermarket backlit USB ports available online; obviously the install would require some dash/panel modification and running wire either to a spare fuse block or directly to the battery. Was thinking they could be mounted on either side of the factory USB/aux ports on the little panel below the A/C controls. My GPS occupies the 12v lighter outlet, and my wife likes to plug her iPhone into the factory USB port to charge, but then the MyLink always randomly switches to "iPod" playback which automatically disables the Bluetooth music function...really annoying. And the factory USB must have really low amperage because it takes forever to charge the phone. Just curious if anyone else might have attempted a mod like this for better charging. Thanks in advance!
I bought a 2015 spark this last year, and have recently upgraded my phone to the iPhone XR. with that being said, I don’t have a USB input to my radio. Just the aux, which means that I cannot charge my phone while I listen to music. I wanted to try to swap out my aux for usb. I don’t have a large amount of knowledge of wiring, and electrical. But I’m good at learning how to do just about anything. Any suggestions from anyone? Part suggestions? I’ve found a couple replacement USB sockets for my year car. BUT I’m not sure if that will work with the wiring I have, or if I’ll have to rewire something. Hopefully that all makes sense! Any suggestions are appreciated ps. I don’t have Bluetooth either. Just radio and aux input. Not even a CD player lol
