Tapped into the auxiliary wiring via the glove box to power a USB multiport splitter. USB multiports are not recognized via the single usb port, pending on your model Bronco. This is a simple job and is well worth it. If you plan on running more than one dash or interior powered accessory, it eliminates what could end up being a mess of cables running from the single usb port or center console power ports. I also wanted the ability to install my Alexa Auto, still working on its location, and my multi-mmb box, installed under seat, to watch TV, cable, etc. The wiring/cables can be easily tucked away, just remember to ground the initial hub/accessory. Another dash powered solution was to secure my portable power bank to the dash. Many of these units can last a very long time without recharging, or you may consider a solar powered power bank. This helps with those wanting to use their phones as temporary dash cams or any other device that requires power. It's always nice to have a clean look without all those cables. Although the only cables you'll now have are the ones coming from the multiport to your devices. The unit you see in the glove box is a hard wired phone holder from my minibike. It's temporary but whatever you decide on can be hidden behind the glove box. All cables, and pending on the device, can be stowed/hidden away.

do you think you could plug in a GoPro to see live on screen to use as a camera view?

I can confirm you cannot go full screen on the 12”
Why? why? why? why? why? why? why? why? WWWWHHHHHYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!???????????????
Why would it be set up this way? I paid for a 12" screen and now I'm hearing that I can't even use it? So is it just an 8" with a visual menu on the side or what? My 2010 had a 10" screen in it with a disc player in it that I could watch movies while waiting somewhere and it took up the whole screen. This sucks. :cautious:

The box does, yes.. The usb splitter allows multiple devices to be run simultaneously. The one stock USB port under dash will not recognize a USB splitter for multiple devices.
Wait... Which USB plug did you wire the splitter into? It adds fully functional USB ports, not just power?
Reason I ask, is I run a 2TB USB hard drive in the Escape for music... Not all USB ports will recognize it.

Do have any pictures of getting into the dash and screen.............I am guessing you had to go there to tie in.

Awesome! Thanks for this, I've been waiting for a post like this (got into an argument with a forum "COP" a couple months ago about this exact idea). This will be perfect for the family while camping or long road trips. Now if we could just get someone to figure out a way to have our bronco's cameras have a sentry mode like the Tesla (for if someone tries to break into your vehicle)
