Thanks Matthias.... Thank you for mentioning this. I completely forgot to mention this. When I first installed the two switches ( one for the GPS, and the other for the led driving lights) I wired the gps from the bottom side of the BMW plug. I had spliced into that harness, as it is switched by the ZFE. Just in case the ZFE acted up,I installed the switch, which I rarely use. I simply just tapped into that, so the usb charger and the voltmeter switches off with the ZFE. When I designed it, I first wanted it to be removable, and thought that if I would make more, it could be customized to plug in with a BMW plug, as an option, for easy removal, as some might not want it bloating up there. But then as the prototype started to take place, I thought it flowed very nice with the lines, and as it might interface with a new intake system in a few months..... I wanted to make it permanently.
