Hi, I still have a few weeks before I get mine delivered. It is also a new Highlander, and I was wondering if the 12v socket under the seat is a standard fitment, or has it been fitted as an extra?

It is a standard part of the Highlander 'kit' which is fitted by the dealer pre-delivery.  I would have preferred to have a cockpit mounted socket as I have limited use for one mounted under the seat (although could possibly charge my phone with it).

I've fitted a double USB supply for my Drift camera and satnav to my handlebars and powered it from the connector under the left hand panel.
Works really well and only £18.

Here is the power supply I used on my handlebars.

I used a couple of bootlace ferrules to connect into the plug under the left panel. Next time I have the panel off I'll get a couple of pictures !

Hope this helps you.
