Yeah, I should have connected the dots on this before I asked the question Why else would they be selling the port installed cable combo set-up? Duh! 🤪

I drove 50 miles yesterday and my phone overheated again. Interesting idea that the position matters. I will try and test around with that, but I could see where you place the phone might make a difference.

I also think the wireless charging seems like it charges pretty slow. Haven't calculated it yet, but what do you all think?

Actually, when I first started using the wireless charger in November, I felt that it charged my phone rather quickly. The phone became a bit warm but not hot. Seemed to work well through December but then overheated our phones in January. I'm on a business trip now and only briefly used the charger today--the phone became warm but it wasn't a good test....not long enough to really prove that the positioning kit really solved the issue. More to come later this week.

Looks like Audi released TSB 2053916/1 in regards to this issue.

Just returned from my business trip...my phone didn't overheat to the point of a message appearing on it that it needed to cool off before being used--but it did become quite warm....much warmer than I remember from November/December usage. (This is with the 4 piece plastic corner kit that centers the iPhone X from side-to-side.) Will need to continue to use it to determine if this is a true solution to the overheating.

Having been an inductive charger user for years, this is "normal". The 5W inductive charger on the D5 doesn't help either, as while these charge phones quicker, they also cause phones to be warmer and thus, the battery lifespan to be shorter.

There is nothing better than charging a phone via a USB cable, FWIW.

Can you share a picture of the new 4 pieces that are holding your phone center?
