12-volt sockets in the 159

Hi all

As I make plans for my 159's imminent arrival, I'm trying to sort out where gadgets will live.

Is there a 12-volt socket in the boot? If so, my work mobile can just stay in there and I can forget about it.

If not, does the USB socket in the glovebox charge and is it possible to get a USB splitter so the iPod & phone can live in there?

Any ideas much appreciated.

No socket in the boot.

Pass on the USB for B&M, I think a hub would confuse the system as it will see 2 devices.

You'll be OK if you're getting a Sportwagon. If you're getting a saloon you'll have to hard wire or make-do with one of those Halfords multi-socket thingies.

I've found a few of my gadgets don't sit in the socket very easily, the plug for my sat nav pops out when I go over bumps.
