      I see.

      My comment on post #2 was not meant to disparage - I just couldn't figure out what I was looking at. It is obvious now.

      cai,

      A somewhat less prickly response to your question: I could give you several links on the Bluestar but they are irrelevant for you. The system uses the defunct Onstar system that was licensed...

      One final comment:

      I did have success when searching for "car charger holder f-22". It looks as if the official name of the unit is "Briar Rose C47+F22 Dual USB Port Car Charger Holder"
