    Anyone ever come across one of these?

    Hi folks.

    Specifically, I'm looking for a short USB cable with an angled male end and female at the other. My HU (Alpine CDE-102Ri) has a USB socket on the right side. Unfortunately it's incredibly close to my left knee (aye, wrong side of the car, heard it, lol) and I ve managed to damage a couple of flash drives because of this. A short cable which could be hidden somewhere on the central armrest would go some way to remedying this as long as it had a discrete angled male end.

    I've Googled but so far come up empty. Any of you guys ever seen such a thing?

    Gordon.

    is there a usb jack on the back of the headunit? you could possibly run a cable into the center console from the back?

    Unfortunately not. This HU is a stop-gap until I free up the funds for something better but I was hoping I could make it last until after Christmas.

    Yes! This is exactly what I'm looking for, although sadly they don't ship to this part of the world and I can't see anything similar on eBay.co.uk. Good find though.

    Found it! Thank you very much for the inspiration to look a bit harder.

    Gordon.

    Possibly but it should be good enough for me. Anyway, 3 bucks.

    can you get amazon? they should have tons of them from different people for dirt cheap.



    *IF I have forgotten to exchange feedback, please let me know*
    i buy broken amps....
    No, i will not "gift" paypal. please do not even make it awkward by asking. if the fees are an issue, I am usually inclined to add them. unless you have discount elsewhere, shipping is through usps flat rate, through usps parcel post, or through the roof..... i am in alaska. thanks

    Thanks friend. I found it though, check post No. 7. It ships from Hong Kong though so it'll be while but for 3 and postage-free, that's good enough for me.
