MK1 CIgarette lighter to turn off with ignition

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know/have a link to a guide that will get the cigarette lighter to turn on/off with the ignition?

 

I have retrofitted android auto the the car with a raspberry pi, but it's a bit of a pain having to take the screen out to unplug the USB from the cigarette lighter every time I am finished driving.

Why don't you piggyback a fuse that uses ignition live? Would save having to do anything.

I bypassed the existing 12v socket completely and installed an additional power socket fused to the ignition...
