So I got a new BlackBerry a few weeks ago. I love the phone and love the fact that it has an mp3 player, gps, and Pandora Internet radio. I want to plumb that into the HD head unit. However, using these applications consume the battery fast.

So I need to charge the bike here...

Second problem, all the standard car chargers have the spiral cords that would pull on the BB and the cigerette lighter. The sprint store, radio shack, and the cell phone guys at Best Buy all told me "Good Luck" (which is code for you don't stand a chance).

After speaking to some BB techs and using logic. I found that I could charge the phone off the wife's garmin, and with the mini USB data cord on the neighbors iPhone charger. So I went back to Best Buy and looked for a car charger for USD.

Found this Rocketfish (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=9347968&type=product&id=1218089197330) adapter for $15

Its SUPER small!!!

Run the USB data cord so I can charge the phone while riding.

Then plug in the stereo to stereo headphone inline cord. To the phone and to the AUX port on the front of the HD head unit.

I placed the unit into the tank bag that I generally take with me on long road trips. It gives me a convient place for candy, wallet, cell phone, and other things that are cumbersome when on long trips. The internet radio will be a god sent on my up coming solo trip.
