The power port > USB adapter is still working fine for my Galaxy, but I'm considering this as a more permanent solution:

I will probably install it on the back of the console, above the power port if room is available on the inside. 2.1A output will be more than enough when paired with a dedicated charger cord.

Battery started at ~90% and was down to ~80% over the two hour stretch. Plugged into the USB port in the center console the entire time.

I'm considering a higher powered USB charging solution instead of the factory plug. I don't use the USB for data anyway, so it's no big loss IMO.
If the slow loss of battery continues to bother me, I can always go to Walgreen's and buy a cheap $5 USB charge adapter for the 12V outlet. I used to have one until I gave it to my niece. It worked fantastically better than the more expensive one I got at Target. I can't remember what brand it was or how much it was exactly, but I had to exchange it once and it still would not work. I just threw it out eventually.

I got my ProClip earlier this week and just finished installing it. It looks great and I can't wait to actually use it! :D

proclip mount tomtom


My tom-tom on a pro-clip mount, I put in a switched 12v power socket in back of glove box (GPS goes on and off with power), when I wired a Gentex dimming rear view mirror with homelink door opener I had from my previous car.
