      wireless charging

      New owner of 2020 xc90. I'm still baffled about the fact that there is no wireless charging. Has any one used the center console storage (there are two USB ports there) for wireless charging tray?

      There are a few threads on this showing an after market insert. I bought mine from Ali Express and I am pleased with it.

      Woah! Pretty cool. I wish our cars had wireless Apple Carplay to couple with that wireless charging pad.

      A couple of comments.

      If you are a Apple customer, there is an adapter people are using for wireless Car Play. They sell it Amazon and elsewhere. Sadly, nothing for wireless AA yet unless you want to kluge something together.

      For wireless charging, what I did is used the ProClip base for the Xc90, and I glued a wireless charger to it.

      Try this for wireless charging:

      The CarPlay2Air or Carlinkit wireless CarPlay adapters can be a bit tricky to get connected initially but they do work as advertised and are a reasonable alternative if you want wireless CarPlay.

      Do they interfere with the remote key? I have a regular wireless charger. If I position it in the mid console area, I cannot turn the engine off unless I move the charger apart. I know it's very strange but did anybody notice any abnormal behavior of the car with the wireless charger? Thanks

      No issues for me in the very short time I've been using the wireless charger. Others have had this version for longer and have not reported any issues that I am aware of.

      I bought something similar from Alibaba for about $70, which works very well. I’ve had it for several months and never had any issues with charging or interference with the remotes.

      That's coming in the next gen SPA cars. For now, Volvo prefers a hardwire connection and putting your phone away in the center console for safety. The last thing you want happening in an autobrake scenario is your phone flying around the cabin.
