I have a 2020 Chieftain Darkhorse. When I plug my Samsung S21 into the USB in the glove box, my phone shuts down. It restarts and then shuts down again. It just keeps doing this cycle until I unplug it. Is this happening to anyone else? I was able to download my Ride Command map to my bike via Bluetooth, and I am able to play Pandora via Bluetooth, but for long rides, I want to be able to have it plugged in to the USB port.

I guess I never tried. I have an Android S10+, if I want to keep it charged I put it into the saddlebag, and hook up the power source in there. Just another option.

Good suggestions. Here's what I tried. I used my work phone, which is an S20. It worked fine. So I think it's an issue with the new Samsung S21s. I did seem to find a fix. If you let the S21 reboot, but don't swipe or put in your password and just let it sit and charge for a couple of minutes and then put in your PIN and let it finish rebooting, it seems to stay on.

I also noticed that it estimates 3 hours and 45 minutes to charge the phone from 47% to 100%. This is very slow. Seems that the Indians have a low amperage USB installed in the glovebox, even on the 2020s. This is a miss by Indian. New phones take more energy to charge and to run. I doubt the charge will keep up with the drain on long rides.

Eh, most cars don't have QC 3.0 either, they're almost always 1 or 2amp chargers at most.
