    Powered USB on Dashboard

    Ive tried a few things to get USB power on my Dasboard.  The streight Din Hella connection to USB will not fit, The Right angled one fit, but does not stay secure and also nearly impede steering.   Im really not sure what ducati was thinking with the placement where it is at, its practically useless.

    Ive decided to just purchase a unit with wires that I can mount directly into the right side of the dash.

    The problem is power for this.  I was planning on simply splicing into the EU DIN jack for power, but it does not have power with the motorcycle off.  I would like to have always on power without having to route a line all the way back to the battery.  Does anyone know of any other power lines I can splice into up under the dash that have always on power?

    It would be nice to be able to charge my Sena while the bike is turned off.

    Thanks, any input is appreciated.

    Satnav power...  I found it in another post.  I should have searched more carefully, sorry.

    I would check what voltage is coming from the sat nav cable, as the Sena only needs 5v 1A or it will over heat the battery possibly leading to battery failure/fire

    how about something like this, doesn't obstruct the steering
