  1. I bought a 2017 Tahoe Z71 and found that my iPhone 7 couldn't use the wireless charging station in the center console. When it was time for a new cellphone I decided to get the new iPhone Xs so, among other things, I could use the wireless charger. Imagine my annoyance when I realized that the 2017 GM products wireless charging followed a different standard than the iPhone X QI standard for wireless and charging and I was still SOL. SO...being in Costco one day I found a wireless charging pad (2 pack). For a while I put the wireless pad on the center console and plugged it in to the inverter. This was annoying as it constantly slid off or the kids kicked the plug in the back seat. SO...I resolved to fix it; to replace the wireless charging guts of my GM product with the wireless charging guts of the working charger. This is the story of that replacement. 1) Figure out how to take apart the working wireless charging pad. Not too bad, remove the bottom rubber pad and remove screws and pry it apart. 2) Figure out how to get the bottom of the center console cover off. Much harder. Got special interior tools and pried again. It feels like you're going to break it. But if you start at the bottom; near the hinge, it goes easier and feels less like you'll break something 3) Remove wireless charging box from under console lid. Open the box and remove the guts. They're glued in. You won't be able to use the metal heat sink part, but will need the plastic box. It is wired in with a plug..so just remove the plug. 4) Remove the guts of the working wireless charging pad. 5) The next problem is that the wireless charging pad runs on 9 volts, while the car charging pad runs on, you guessed it, 12 volts. You need a little buck converter or power regulator to get the voltage where it belongs. If the electronics part is beyond you, contact me, I have a few extra I could part with. 6) Wire this all together, fit the parts into the box from the Tahoe, hot glue them into position, connect the power coming into the lid of the console and the concept if complete. But not the build. 7) There are some issues: 1) The new coil must fit VERY closely to the edge of the box. In fact it seems like it has to be pressed into the box. To accomplish this I cut a new top for the box and padded the coil so it was under pressure to contact the top of the box. 2) The rubber pad in the top of the console lid does not position the phone exactly right to get the most reliable charging. I recommend removing the rubber pad and reversing it (so the little reminder not to put metal on the charger is near the back of the console). 3) The coil has an orientation. I had it working flawlessly on the bench but when I installed it realized that I had the coil cross wise to the needed orientation; had to take it all apart and start again.

  3. Apologies if posted before, I searched and found nothing. I updated my phone recently and noticed something very interesting. I did a console swap for my truck, and confirmed it had the early model wireless charging. I was testing the fit of my new S10E, with and without case, on the console to see if it would rest nicely when it started to charge wirelessly. I haven't done a full set of tests to see how fast, to what percent, location, rubber orientation, etc. So if anyone wants to feel free; but I did want to pass this along for those who have yet to upgrade and might have this phone.
  4. I have a 2018 center console armrest with wireless charging part number 84330208. My parts guy at the Caddy Dealership wasn't paying attention when ordering my console to note that some consoles come with the armrest and some don't. Well he ordered me the console with the armrest and the armrest separate. Since I special order purchased Chevy truck parts from a Caddy dealer I was unable to make a return with out a ridiculous restocking fee. It has never been installed, only removed from the box to take pictures. List price for it is $451.17, Im asking what I paid for it which is $260 plus $15 to ship in the lower 48.
  5. Anyone know of a compatible charging case for the iPhone 7 Plus to work on the charging pad? All I can find are cases for iPhone 6S and older models. Thanks for any help ahead of time!
  6. Hey guys, I picked up my 2015 Silverado CC LT Z71 a few weeks ago, and I love it. One of the first mods I did was to add a wireless charger to the tray on the folded middle front seat. With a triple-coil DIY Qi charger element and a direct wire to micro-USB converter from Amazon and some hot glue, it was a piece of cake. Pop the plastic cover off the bottom of the lid, remove the four screws that hold in the tray, and lift the tray off. Grind the standoffs off and smooth it out with sandpaper. I opted to cut the fabric square out from underneath the tray and hot glue the edges in place. I tapped into the 12v power point in the console for power, and completely concealed the wire. Bring the wire into the opening, plug it into the Qi charger, and do a test-run to make sure your phone charges. It took me a few tries to get the positioning just right. After you're sure about the positioning, hot glue the Qi charger and cords in place, close it all up, and you're good to go! I'm enjoying having wireless charging in my truck, all for $25 of parts from Amazon. I can't figure out the images on this site - pictures of the install are on a Google Photo album - https://goo.gl/photos/X2iA3xF9aygZfiqP7
  7. Does anybody know if it's possible to upgrade the middle armrest to the one that has wireless charging? I saw the part online but I'm not sure if it would work since my truck does not already have wireless charging. http://www.gmpartsdirect.co/chevrolet/silverado-1500/23450838/2016-year/lt-trim/5-3l-v8-gas-engine/body-cat/center-console-scat/?part_name=armrest-assy
