Buy a ZB and drop an LS in it.

Or look at ZB parts list and consider if you can retrofit such parts into your VF ;)

I looked at the Equinox setup. Too expensive just to charge a phone

Some guy on Facebook had posted a photo of his charging pad siting in the bit at the front of the console.

Still had to have it plugged into a power source though, which defeats the purpose of "wireless charging"

a project that I have not managed to find time to finish is installing a wireless charging coil under the rubber insert below the ac controls.

its pretty simple to just use the guts out of a charging pad and connect it to a 12v>5v usb charger and hard wire it to the wires that go to the 12v acc socket.
doing it this way I can just put the coil below the rubber insert so everything looks factory but placing the phone there will allow it to charge.

This

Yes it involves some work however its the cleanest method

cut into the rubber mat and then wired it the cigarette plug for accessories power.

I charge mine at home as well but when I’m in the car I tend to run the dash command app and it DESTROYS the battery like 30mins running the app and my old phone was dead.

I have one of the samsung ones and even if I removed the rubber it would be too big.
The coil is the neatest finish taped to the bottom of the rubber insert but if you can find a really thin wireless mat it may work.

I use this which works great for me. I use a Samsung not sure if it'll work with Iphone.
