It needs more than one USB port, standard

Is a USB hub difficult ?
Hah! You're right. I feel dumb now LOL

Maybe ... I don't have much experience but if memory serves you may need a powered hub depending on the draw of your devices.

No offense, but in a modern vehicle I shouldn't HAVE to get a hub. It should have two front and two back, standard.

How'd you like it if you had to buy 3 tires because it came with 1? I know, that's a big extreme.

But as improvements go, I'd certainly just add the dang usb ports.

As to some others, since both my wife and I drive it, memory seats and mirrors would be nice.

Rear AC would be a plus.

Few things such as those.

I'd choose Around View over more USB ports or rear A/C. Priorities vary by person.

We have one of those 12 volt accessory to USB thingies that we use to get the second USB port. We can both plug our phones that way.

Hey maybe that will be the token 2020 improvement on our 2020 Eplus that we get in February. Woohoo. :)

Given that car USB ports are often underpowered, a powered hub might be a good thing. The back seat riders could then plug in USB heated slippers, USB fans, USB coffee pots, USB missile launchers (look it up!)...

We do the same thing with the usb cigarette lighter plug in to have 2 up front.

Kids have one of those usb blocks in the back for long rides. In some ways it’s easier than rear USB as they can keep it between them.

I don't sweat the small things I can fix easily to my satisfaction.
The battery on the other hand is a sorrow

At least it doesn't catch fire like a Tesla battery.

You are hilarious! Talk about being an over the top with your exaggerations. I have 2 Leafs on recall for possible fire or short with their battery grounding... :lol: But let's not talk about that, right?
