Hi, I'm a new member and this is my first post so I hope I'm asking this in the correct area. Can one have the phone on the wireless charger and still have it connect to Apple CarPlay so that other Apps work?
Yes, carwow showed the charging tray with his (or his technician's?) phone in it.The owners manual says the maximum phone size in the charging tray is 154.5 x 8.0, but my iPhone 12 Pro Max is 164 x 8.0 . Is the owners manual wrong or will my iPhone not fit? My phone fits in our 2021 X3.
Has anyone looked at the actual tray size in the demo vehicles?
Well that will be perfect as I have a galaxy fold 2.
Why? Is there something tricky about charging the fold wireless? I am thinking of getting one next year when my current lease expires.Well that will be perfect as I have a galaxy fold 2.
Edit: looking at the video, the fold might fit in there but I'll be surprised if it will actually charge.
From the pic, it looks like it doesn't sit flush in there.Why? Is there something tricky about charging the fold wireless? I am thinking of getting one next year when my current lease expires.
Good point, I hope I will have the car before I need to decide on the phone. I would only get back covers though.From the pic, it looks like it doesn't sit flush in there.
I also have a case on mine and with my at home wireless charger , I have to take the case off to charge it.
The older I get, the bigger get the phones.i'm so happy i skipped max version and went for standard 13pro (sorry for offtopic guys)
Let’s hope!!!! Thank you, @Vincent. Let me know if you find anything further on your front, which will be earlier than here in USA! Appreciate it.A few weeks ago I sat in a new 4 series coupe (G22) at the dealership. My iPhone 11 Pro Max (with Apple’s transparent case) did fit the wireless charging tray despite it being 158mm and the tray officially only supporting phones up to 154mm according to the manual (2021 BMW 4 Series Coupe – Owner's Manual – 392 Pages – PDF).
I would expect the tray to have the same size in the G26, but I’ll hold off upgrading to a newer phone until I’ve had a chance to try in a proper i4.
Maybe the problem with bigger phones is that they can’t be cooled, even if they fit?
Yeah, that last paragraph is the concern for me. I do the same charging it overnight, but if it’s critical for Digital Key, then I’d like to know that it fits. We’re on the same page there, including a great storage spot!Sure. I’ll post an update when I’ve had a chance to sit in the i4!
Come to think about it, I wonder if I really need the wireless charging tray. I charge my phone every night (wirelessly to reduce wear on the lightning connector) and it always lasts a full day. The only time I might need to recharge during the day is on a long road trip, in which case I’d have my regular charger and the cable with me.
I do hope my iPhone 11 Pro Max fits the space in general, as that seems to be where you need to put the phone to start the car with Digital Key (the Non Plus version). And also because it’s a good place to store it. It has already gotten too big for the cup holders in my F36.
