Hey Mike - Instead of using the USB ports for power, can you get a 12v cig lighter adapter for the CD player so you won't need the batteries?


That will still have the ground loop issue.

That is pretty much what I was trying to do with my Panasonic. A bit spendy. Thanks.

There is only one 12V hookup in that truck, and it is up by the windshield on the dash. I have to use that for my GPS. That truck has evolved way past my equipment. Thanks.

I hear you on this..

Never enough outlets for DD alone in the back in our vehicles..

But, that is why they make aftermarket power ports..

Found HERE for $8.. Find a good spot and drill a hole, run some wire and done.

Walmart often carries a few aftermarket power ports to choose from that have a bracket that mounts with a couple of screws.

I do this to all of my vehicles as the newer vehicles "manage" the power ports and turns them all off after 10 minutes when engine is turned off.

Mounted one right under the drivers seat wired directly to the battery so I can plug in and run my fuel transfer pump (I carry a 15 gallon landscaper tank with extra gas) without the need of using the key..
