Audi C5 models (’98-04 A6 & ’99-05 allroad) came from the factory with various tech and gadgets however they lacked an easy access mobile phone/tablet/GPS USB Charger. Sure you could use the OEM lighter outlet however its’ location makes it cumbersome to have anything plugged into since it somewhat interferes with the gear shifter.
