Almost exactly what I wanted

Written By Josh, San Diego, CA on Monday, December 22, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product is almost exactly what I was looking for. It installs perfectly and sits flush with the surface you are mounting it to. It is square so it can easily replace a blank switch port in a car. I just wish it came with a 12v to 4v converter so it was more plug-n-play in a car.

Pros: Easy to use mounts

Cons: Wish it had a 12v to 4v converter so it could be wired in a car.

Easy installation

Great little kit to extend USB and have an easy mounted spot to plug in ipod or USB drive. Makes for a clean install. I used mine to relocate my ipod to the center consul of my truck.

Very nice kit

Written By Lofdog, Delavan, WI on Thursday, July 18, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this to extend the USB port of my App Radio 3 so when I have to do firmware updates on it, the port is readily accessible. I like the inclusion of both types of mounts and everything you need to make a USB port look nice and clean installed.

Pros: The kit has everything you need to make an accessible USB port

Cons: It came with a USB to USB mini cable, I didn't have a use for this and think that it shouldn't be part of the kit.
