just wondered if anyone else has done this as they are quite expensive and i dont want to cut into the wrong wire loom and immobilise my car .Its a 55 plate Mondeo TDCi 130 ,thanks again.....
Welcome back may I recommend an extra socket from ford [url="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-12v-Accesory-Wiring-Loom-Kit-Additional-Socket-New-/380353407053?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item588ed4684d"][color="#0000ff"]Click Here[/color][/url] a L bracket could br made easily to store this socket under the footwell,
sort of like this bracket [url="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Marine-Underdash-Cigarette-Lighter-Power-Socket-Bracket-/370537472156?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_BoatEquipment_Accessories_SM&hash=item5645c1209c"]Click Here[/url] 2 holes to mount under the dash and a bigger bore to slot the 12v socket in to,
The 12v socket comes provided with ford fitting instructions so you cant go wrong, your sat nav charger can be easily unpluged and removed,
a more secure option as their won't be any visible sign from the windows that their may be a satnav in the car,
also if you upgrade the satnav, change model or want to use it in another car you can easily bring the complete charger with you. a more user friendly option.
i dont sell either of these items myself but i will buy one of the 12v sockets also,
