Evening, I’m looking for a right angled lightning cable - both ends at right angles.

Has anyone found / used one that is compatible and works / lasts well…

TIA

What lightning to lighting or lightning to USB?

Eugene's would do it Andy. You'd need to ensure the "throw" at the car USB end sends the cable the way you want it, as USB A only goes in one way.

Mine is USB A to USB C and with Cable Drops provides the neatest solution I've had with Android Auto via Volvo's Smartphone Integration.

Looking ahead, when wireless AA adaptors start arriving (could also be relevant to CP), I'd hoped to use a 90° connector to drop it vertically and into the cubby hole. But unfortunately the SI socket is above the "ordinary" USB one so may foul the thumb drive I have for my local tunes.

More thought needed on that one. And ensuring the turn goes down, not up 😂

Good luck.

That’s great, thanks 👍🏻

And it goes the right way (USB) side - ie cable goes towards the driver ?

Yes, the USB side goes towards the driver, exactly as in Mikeg’s picture.
