    Does anyone have a link to a dual (OEM style) USB port. I want to run 2 music USBs but can only find duals with one being a charger.

    The only thing close is this. My plan is to go from one port to 2 behind the dash.

    I've been looking for one and the one you posted is the only one i've been able to find.

    You might just be better off doing 2 single usb ports, which is what i'll probably end up doing.

    I wonder if the OEM HU would see the second device, have you tried this out already?

    It will see 2 and give you a new ICON on the audio screen. Each USB limited to 9999 files so that would double your library with 2.

    The radio has a memory of sorts. If you keep adding files to the USB the radio for some reason doesn't see all of them. It also messes up the "random" feature.

    To keep this from happening, you have to upload the whole library on that USB and not add. Be nice to have 2 at that point. Loading 5500 flies takes over an hour.

    How did you plug the 2 into the 1 slot? I was planning to do a 1 to 2 usb "behind" the dash and have the 2 usbs in the old location. Just cant find a square (OEM style) dual usb.

    I have the nex which has two usb ports. Do you want both ports to be able to connect to your stereo? Or is the other one intended for a passenger to charge there phone or something like that?

    Screenshot_20180804-104350_Chrome.jpg I'm looking for dual USB both data, no charging. Seems impossible in OEM style.

    I may just buy one and bust it open. If it looks doable I can get another one and combine the 2.

    Then connect them behind the dash with this.
