What hub are you currently using, are you happy with the product.
I am looking for one and not sure what to get.
I downloaded the tapatalk app and returns no results when searching USB hub. Odd

next project? subaru brz
I like the Ram Tough Hub.
1999 Mercury Grand Marquis GS with: ASRock E350M1 w/4GB RAM, 80GB Intel SSD, Opus DCX3.120, Visteon HD Radio + HDR-USB, PL-18N wifi, OBDLink Scan Tool, BTA6210 BT, BU-353, Win 7 Ultimate, CF 4.0, Alpine MRP-F240 + MRP-T220, RF Punch 1572s, Kicker 8" Comp.
Diito on the Ram Hub. It's expensive but worth the money. Adjustable Auto shutoff and easy to power. It takes 12v so no PITA trying to figure out how to use a 5v typical hub for home use how to power that and how to make sure devices are properly shut off with no power draw when shut down.
I think it has 7 ports so good expansion.

Considering I just paid for a 12V PSU that has auto-off and all, I don't think I need it in my hub. Are there any basic 2.0 or 3.0 hubs that will take filtered 12v?
I don't have 3.0 yet, but hope to upgrade the PSU later so was thinking of getting a 3.0 hub now just to future-proof a little. I may use the USB for video capture on multiple cameras, so the 3.0 would help bandwidth a little.
I'm way too cheap to pay that much for it. I did see a Cool Gear 4 port hub on Amazon for $47, but that seems like too much money too.
Buy generic 5v powered USB hub and a 5V LDO (Low Drop Out) Voltage Regulator (probably 1A or more). Hardwire the USB hub to the 5v VReg and to a switched wire in the vehicle.
I spent another hour or two shopping last night and finally ordered a hub.
Since I have an unused output on my almost-here CNX-P2140 that I don't yet need, I'm going to set it to 5v and use a standard 7 port 2.0 hub. If/when I need that output at 12v (my longer range plans), I'll get one of those Current Logic 5V 5A supplies with the big heat sink on them for $14.50.
Total invested: $38.50, and I'll have a 5V source I can use with for other things as needed.
It's not that I'm cheap really, it's just that I can't stand to pay too much.
