Qi wireless charging retrofit

Post by Borat1987 » Sun Sep 22, 2019 1:15 pm

I’ve done a bit of a retrofit on my XF, by installing a wireless charger for my iPhone under the rubber mat just in front of the gear selector.



*I changed the fuse to the cigarette lighter, as this one is only on when the ignition is.
Parts cost about £10.

Should be similar for the XE.

It's a very handy space that's missing a useful bit of tech.
I've not watch the YouTube video, is it a guide?

Yeah more if a rough guide than a technical guide but should help if anyone fancies doing the job.

I did the same a while back on my XE-S and people said what a bad idea it was... I think it's actually an official option from jaguar now!

Handy isn't it?

Bad idea? What did people think was bad about it? Yeah i thought it was standard on xes but probably an option.

I think it was just the fact of it being on whenever the car was on and not being official so future owners wouldn't know about it.
I never had a problem, and the guy I sold the car to said he thought it was great.

I'll be doing the same again on my new XE when (if!) It arrives. Been delayed by another month now.

It is now an option on the mid cycle refresh XE and is located in the 'fire place' as per the above install.

That said, the fireplace is now wider/larger to get it to fit and the actual charger has a lot of protection in it so you don't fry bank cards, keys etc.
