From a recommendation on here I bought one of these flush(ish) fitting usb plugs.
Works well and is a nice snug fit in the cars socket.

FYI - just in case you weren't already aware from other threads on here - your radio reception will go to hell while you are charging your phone.... and I seem to remember it will also suffer while this is merely plugged in i.e. it has a slight draw at all times


As long as you know that is the cause, you don't risk spending a fortune and time on a new head unit, etc


(more than a few of us seem to have spent some time down that particular rabbit hole! Wall )

It's an expensive rabbit hole, unfortunately.

A good friend of mine (who designs and makes amps, amongst other things) reckons that it's the Nokia amp having an issue with other electrical items (specifically the DC:DC converter in the charger) sharing the same ground as it.

The issue should not appear if the car has no amp, is the good news (if we are right).

It even interferes with the radio in my 3 year old VW Transporter.

Think I'll file it under F Rolling Eyes
