I don’t think so. As the OP I tried several options before heading down this road. On one hand it might work, as it’s before the modules hub. But then the modules hub might not work correctly.

I also noticed that my R4.0 with 2015 software were a lot less prone to give the black screen when connecting than with the old one.

Now the radio is updated so now it works every time like it should, but the old software liked the new USB one better.

Maybe the added power, made the voltage more stable.

I agree it must have been the power requirements of the LG phone were too great for the original port.

My Samsung phone normally drains when it is connected if in use, Android auto etc, today battery went from 53% to 75% on my drive to work with waze and google play going so definitely a worth while upgrade.
