    I know my rear chargers are like you said active.1amp over 2.1amp.So these maybe the same,but the website says 1amp.But the advert in VWT said 2.1amp so not positive.I’ll use gps on my phone soon and post the results.

    I asked because I bought a cheap branded single DIN radio/CD/Aux & USB system & lobbed the old cassette deck unit only to find the USB couldn't actually charge my Samsung phone with the Location Settings ON! FFS - chocolate teapot tech!

ID:	13427Also,had acquired new wheels with the help of willtheyfit.com.As recommended by the Sausage.I figured on a high offset set of Mercedes wheels to tuck them in but also,get an 8.5 inch et54 wheel with a 245 40 tyre inside the rear wheelarch.Had to bend the handbrake cable hanger further in to clear the wheel as it was 21mm further in than my old 7.5 wide wheels.Click image for larger version.
