Question Create New USB Hub Under Dashboard?

I'd like to mount a mini USB boombox under an ICON I60 dashboard. It uses a standard USB cable for recharging. What is the easiest (and cleanest) method of creating a new USB hub (single port) under the removable cupholder that is powered only when the cart is turned on?

The key switch is not the right place to get power from. Plus it is probably 48v.

Do you have a usb power port in the dash already? You can splice into that 12v if you do. Some icons are supposed to have a 12v fuse block under there. You might be lucky.

Red face Re: Create New USB Hub Under Dashboard?

There is a hub containing two USB ports on the dashboard. There appear to be two wires leading to that hub. I'm unclear whether I can tap into those wires to route to a new hub under the dash (I want it to be hidden and exclusive to the boombox) without screwing up the existing hub. I also haven't verified whether that hub is powered or not when ignition is turned off. If it is not, I'd need to go a different route.

It is switched. You can verify this by trying to run your boombox from it with the key on and off.

Splicing into those power wires will be ok. I use those wires to power all of the 12v accessories in my dash. I added a fuse box to make it easier.
