And an external sense, please. I prefer to connect my radios
direct to the battery (or close to it), but use the ACC circuit
to switch them on and off. It would be awesome if something like
the AP04 would use the external sense as well as the battery
voltage... and yes, provide 5V @ 1W :-)

Those Astrodyne DC/DC units are very sweet looking! Any idea how well
they deal with the wide voltage swings in old generator/regulator
vehicles? My "battery" voltage sometimes dips to 9V, which plays
havoc with a few things that want "12V" in.
