    I've got one euro mini port under my bars and two devices that need power. A Garmin 62 and an Iphone that both get mounted on the handbars.

    Garmin takes a mini USB and Iphone takes standard apple plug. I've looked through the available products from Powerlet, initially looking for a single plug with a splitter but realized there has got to be a cleaner better way to do it. Maybe with a permanent plug to GPS from battery.

    If you had this setup, how would you power it?

    or

    looking at my setup, is there a better way to mount both the 62 and phone?

    The handlebar mounts look good. I'd add another 12v socket around the bars to power the 2nd unit. And with the 12v sockets you can get an adapter to fit whatever electronic device your trying to power.

    P.S. never thought I'd see a garage in Afghanistan housing a pink bicycle, a john Deere tractor, a bmw motorcycle, and a basketball net in the driveway...

    Good luck
