Anybody replaced the cigarette lighter with a usb port? I'm looking for one that will fit in the lighter hole without enlarging it.

I'm kind of a dinosaur when it comes to things like this. But on the year range of cars we usually deal with here, installing a usb port seems kind of useless. Unless you have new electronics that need a usb port.

The pc based scan program I used on my 95 obd 1 car, required a cable that connected aldl of car to usb port of pc based computer. But the pc I hooked to had the usb port already.

So I would like to try and understand your need for a usb port and what you drive, & what equipment you plan to communicate with each other.

That way, if someone else has this type of question, I can rise up from the prehistoric era to modern times.

I drive a 97 ss convertible. I'd use the usb port for a dash cam. The lighter element doesnt and instead of replacing it and using a usb plug, i rather put in a usb port.
