As per the title......

Does anyone have the phone box and use it for wireless charging. I bought my car at 3 month old and I'm told it has the phone box, this is confirmed by the printout from Audi.

I've just bought the Audi iPhone 6 case for wireless charging but can't seem to get it to work........... any suggestions are welcome.

AFAIK Wireless Charging by Audi isn't compatible with iPhones

But you can get a case which supports the wireless charging for iPhones 6-7... it's in the Audi store on their website, basically has a little dongle which pops into the charging socket on the phone.

That's the case I've just got but for the life of me I can't get it to charge

Have you plug the case into the charging socket on the phone?

Yup, tried it in mine and the Mrs's ......... it's causes no reaction on the phone and both fail to charge? My centre console has the wireless picture on the mat inside and Phone Box is listed on my build???

Humm... do you have the advanced tech pack? Might be a part of that... also, you need to turn the ignition on?

Yeah someone kindly ticked every option box I think, its got the tech listed and the phone box listed separate. I've had it just with the ignition on, then with the engine running and with a hard reset on the phone......... still nothing?

Thanks for the response though, the mrs certainly isn't listening to my dilemma :blush::blahblah1:

Works fine for me. It has a wireless charging logo on the bottom of the slot under the armrest, and when I put my phone in a message pops up on the MMI screen telling me the phone is being charged.

Is it a pre facelift car? The facelift doesn't have the Audi music interface. If so, I don't think they have wireless charging - only the Facelift models. You get the benefit of the external aerial though.

Yeah that looks like a signal boosting icon rather than wireless charging. I might be wrong though, it has been known to happen

I'd like to retrofit that charger in to my car. Does anyone have a part number for it?

Anybody?

Really? No retrofits?

This QI symbol is what designates the wireless charging I believe

Hi mate could you send a pic from the other side just want to see if the box has a net on the other side! And you wouldn’t happen to know if this phone box and antenna module would fit into a RS3 saloon 2017 cheers mate!
