    Cigarette Lighter is 987 Passenger footwell....

    Can any new 987 owners confirm there is a second power point in the passenger footwell?

    Re: Cigarette Lighter is 987 Passenger footwell....

    Don't know. There's one in the 997 so I bet there's one in the 987.

    Re: Cigarette Lighter is 987 Passenger footwell....

    In USA cars, there is the cigarette lighter to the right of the handbrake and a power plug inside the storage compartment behind the handbrake.

    That will be handy for the radar detector, then!

    ...and PDA Sat Nav!!

    Re: Cigarette Lighter is 987 Passenger footwell....

    Re: Cigarette Lighter is 987 Passenger footwell....

    Yes its there.
    But the power stays on all the time.
    Also when the car is off

    Oi! Don't make me come over there! What colour stripe did you say you'd specced? It can be arranged...

    Watch out for mobile speed traps if you're heading up the A37. They're a bit active at the moment!

    Re: Cigarette Lighter is 987 Passenger footwell....

    Thanks for that! Haven't arranged to fit an anti-cop device (sorry I mean an accident black spot safety warning device) yet. I wouldn't break speed limits while it is running in, will I? My local high-repute car electronic specialist will fit one for Pounds50. Porsche Centre Bournemouth wanted Pounds175. I want to get it wired in properly as I don't want wires all over the place. Probably get an Origin B2 as my Snooper S6 in my daily drive is, yet again, broken. And the box is too bulky for the Boxster.

    Re: Cigarette Lighter is 987 Passenger footwell....

    I don't know how long we're going to be still able to legally use speed trap detectors in this country. Sounds like the government's toying with banning then (but keeping GPS based fixed-camera locators legal). B2 would be on my list, but I'd also look at a Road Angel 2, though is a bit big and bulky I concede.

    Re: Cigarette Lighter is 987 Passenger footwell....

    I've looked into this. The road safety white paper is still currently a discussion document. Several issues have still to be resolved, as it stands even park distance systems and the excellent Mercedes automated speed control which automatically maintains a safe distance from the vehicle in front would be illegal. In any event the GPS based systems will still be legal as the government will have no problems highlighting the location of fixed safety cameras. The timescale is such that legislation is at least 18 months away.
