Has anybody done this in a car with a handbrake? I think it's a bit trickier than one with an electronic brake and I'm keen to get some advice.

I'd have thought the procedure ould be very similar but you'd need to feed the console past the handbrake lever

Hello Guys,

I'm asking it here maybe you know better:

I have a dashcam but in Astra K the power on the lighter is turned off when turning off the car.
I found also some devices that connect to the battery and power the dashcam constantly, in the meanwhile they check the battery power level but I would not like to install this...

Do you know if it is possible to have uninterrupted USB voltage supply in the car?

Thanks!

Installing these USB ports for the kids is on the list to do next. Ordered from pentagon and will take 1 week to arrive. I'll post some pictures when done.
