No 12 volt

I really dislike the fact the power ports turn off when the car isn't running. 🙁

Add one, just power it off a live fuse tap. I have one for my dash camera.

Most cars do this as it prevents power draw off the battery when the car isn't running preventing the 12 volt battery from running down. I have never owned a car that kept the power ports on when the car was off.

My past VWs did, but I don't think my last one did (2014 Passat TDI)
