Hey there!
New owner of an icon dark here. To my dismay I realised they have removed the USB port from this new line up. I like to do long road trips and rely heavily on GPS on my phone, amongst other things.
I'm not very technical so I was wondering if anyone could give me some simple tips on how to get my phone connected to the bike?
Many thanks!

Just use your preferred search engine to look for a USB socket kit for motorcycles. There are literally hundreds of them available. Most come with everything you need and fitting instructions.
I suggest you get one with an on/off switch. Some USB sockets draw power even when the ignition is turned off and nothing is connected. It is something to do with the way that the USB components work. Many motorcyclists have fitted sockets then discovered that their battery is flat when they want to use their bike soon after.

Great! This is exactly what I did. Managed to find a second hand Ducati USB from a super sport model for 20 euros. Looks like it should fit!
