Hi all

My Samsung doesn't wirelessly connect to the car, so I need to use the USB lead they provided.
But, I didn't like the way the USB C ports point the plugs directly out into the storage box, especially as the Cupra lead they supplied had an adapter on it as well making it very long.

Amazon to the rescue....

Bought a couple of 90 degree USB C adapters and a pair of USB C to standard female USB sockets. I stuck the whole conversion to the bulkhead with some sticky pads.
Far neater and now little chance of snapping off a USB C while fumbling for sunglasses :)

Thanks, for this, I also found that annoying, especially as I managed to break the usb-c adapter that comes with the Cupra cable already. Stupid port placement if you ask me.
Anyway, these adapters are perfect. good find.

Anyone got any ideas if it is actually possible to get an ipod classic to work in a Born?
Seems a shame, I have had it forever and this is the first car where it doesn't work.
