Re: DYI iPhone Connect and Charging Dock

Here's my run for DIY glory...

Result.jpg

I have mounted an iPhone holder in the "hole" of the central console. Quite a natural position for a phone, actually. Because of the angle the phone takes it does not move under braking or acceleration. The 2 anti-slip pads (see below) prevent if from moving sideways, at least at my cornering speeds (I don't have slicks on Jag).
I have an iPhone X but this solution should also work for other iPhone models with a lightning connector. Of course, if you have a taller iPhone it could obstruct the Jag's lower display.

Here's what I did:
I pulled up the rubber protection of the central console, bending it upward & backward.
Then fixed an "Apple iPhone lightning dock black" to the bottom of the console using double sided tape. Connected it to the USB port under the arm rest (guided the cable so that it's hardly visible).
Finally, I took 2 small anti-slip pads, to avoid that the top of the iPhone touches the hard plastic of the dashboard and slides around in corners.

Does anyone have any experience with this (or another) wireless carplay kit?

I used to have wireless carplay on my BMW and it was so much more convenient.
Wondering if this works well

Ditto.

Guess you could connect this in the centre console and CarPlay will just work when phone is in the car?

Not cheap but effective if so.
