Yep. HDMI port and Micro USB for power. I've just ordered a right angled Micro USB cable for better cable management and a M to F USB cable with a power switch so I can turn it on and off. Also ordered some carbon vinyl wrap to cover the box. Still unsure how I'm going to attach it to the base yet. I was thinking maybe something with the screw holes on the front of the fanatec base but maybe just some mounting tape will do the job.

Just say that the Simdashboard mentioned at the start of this post requires no connection.  It talks to the PC via wifi.
I just start the app, place my Galaxy phone in front of me and it works . . . very well.
