I found the problem was they supplied enough power to charge a phone or sat nav, but not enough power to keep them going on a long ride. So I could not charge and use my phone as a sat nav at the same time.

I paid around £8 for one and it's pretty good off amazon I think in the end.

I found the same thing with my one. I had to have the screen on max to see it which didn't help.

I bought a 5A converter box and some USB sockets which I might get round to fitting one day...
