    USB Y-Cable with Toggle Switch

    Hi All,
    I am looking to connect an iPhone and an external hard drive to the USB receptacle that came standard with my 2011 Dodge Charger. The system will not accept the two devices connected at the same time, so I need a Y-cable with a toggle switch so that I can go back and forth between the two devices. I've so far been unable to find a product out there like this. Any advice would be very much appreciated!

    I'm not sure that such a product exists. There are USB switches, but they are for sharing a single USB device across multiple computers, but you are looking for the opposite. There are also of course USB hubs that allow you to connect multiple devices to one USB port, but it sounds like you've already tried that and it didn't work?

    Can't use a hub because the software wouldn't support it - unless that hub had a switch that allowed me to 'activate' specific devices...couldn't have them plugged in at the same time.

    I think that might just work! And it won't cost all that much to give it a try. Thanks!
