FM reception

747 3
I’ve noticed that when I charge my phone via USB adapter in the power outlet (cigarette lighter for us old folk) in the center console, my fm reception goes to shoot. If I leave the USB adapter in there but not connected to the phone, it’s fine. As soon as my plug my phone in, my channels are almost completely fuzzed out. Is it just a crap USB adapter?

Is the radio still stock or an aftermarket one?

Is the phone the only USB device that causes issues charging from that port?

Does that phone cause problems charging from the other ports in the car?

I keep my old school iPod plugged into the dedicated USB port in the console to serve as my music hard drive.

Everything is still stock.

I haven’t tried charging anything else from the USB adapter.
