Hi guys. We’ve had our V2 for a few days. There’s a place under the armrest that looks like a wireless phone charger. I put 3 different phones on it and nothing happens. There’s a symbol on the charger hinting that I need to read the manual. However my car doesn’t have a manual. Just a tiny read me booklet. Is this pad an actual charger? If so how do I make it work?

It is a charger, but on my test drive it didn’t work with my iPhone SE.

I was told I need a different case and that iPhones are an issue, fix by said case.

My Samsung S20+ works just fine, but I have the top of the phone near the bottom of the compartment and not had any issues. Hopefully that makes sense.

It's really not very efficient and makes the phone quite hot in charging - far better to plug in, if you got a cable. Maybe the S20+ being a little bigger than most has less "shuffle room" in the tray than my S22.

Apologies if this is a repeat post. I thought I already posted but I don’t see it.
I pulled it apart and there’s no wiring there. So I guess that explains it :)
Seems it only comes with tech packs. Didn’t want to pay for keyless entry (please steal my car) so I guess I didn’t pay for wireless charger either :)

I'm working on a DIY retrofit for adding a wireless charger to non-tech pack vehicles. I'll let you know how I get on.
