I ordered my up! last week without even taking it to a test drive. I know that will be excellent like VW's are and I fell in love with the styling and cute sinister look.

But what I want to know is that is there a USB connector anywhere on the dash? That would start to be a good idea to include nowadays since since almost all poratble machines charge via one.

No but a Griffin powerjolt type device will sit discretely in the 12 socket and provide one or 2 high power usb sockets, I use one to charge a power-hungry ipad3 on the go.....beware the ebay no-name adapters as they are often unregulated.

Thanks for the tip. I ordered one from Amazon.co.uk since I can't order straight from Griffin (damned EU!). They clearly sell fakes also through Amazon so I hope I chose the right one.

You should have got one of the guys on here to order one for you and then forward it! (damned EU!) bypassed!!

I don't trust some of the cheap 12v > USB adapters on the market, but having said that apple (if your using iphone / iPad in car), don't make their own.

If you look on the apple store though their recommended suppliers are not bad value for money.

http://store.apple.com/uk/product/H8625ZM/A/just-mobile-highway-pro-dual-charger - £30+ (expensive)

http://store.apple.com/uk/product/HA782ZM/A/just-wireless-car-charger (£13) - reasonable

If you look on ebay make sure you get branded items with integrated circuit breakers to protect your gear.
