    Hi there
    I'd like to fit my DAB Highway unit into the glovebox. The power lead uses a cigar lighter type adapter which i don't want to use in the fitted one as it sticks up too far.
    Could I fit another one of these cigar type sockets somewhere in the glove box area, and where would be the best and easiest place to draw power from?
    Thanks for any advice.
    Chris :yes:

    Hello buddy, what's the power rating of the unit? Should be available on the user guide or maybe on the data sticker on the unit?

    Well played. 0.5 amps is MUCHO for a radio. That must be fuse rating?
