I have a Dec 15th build Platinum. My Samsung Note 4 was never able to charge wirelessly. I have a feeling it is because it would never sit flat against the charging platform simply because the phone was too big. I know that some members with different build dates and phones have had mix success with wireless charging. I can confirm that wireless charging does work with my car and the Samsung S6, see attached.

My Note 4 does not work either. My Note Edge does. Waiting for my S6 Edge to come.

My I phone 6 plus works when you lay it on the pad before you start the truck. If you pick it up it looses the connection and will not charge until you turn the truck off and put the phone on the pad and restart.

i have a samsung 4s with a otter case. I bought the back for the wireless charger system for my phone.. The wireless charger on my escalade is very touchy.
If i place it on the pad prior to starting the car, it will charge 99% of the time, other wise sometimes it just wont workor will start heating up. I have tried with out the otter case and no difference.

What case are you using with the 6 plus?

I have been using a home charger and a Qi charging coil

and power bot

Not sure about the I phone 6-plus. My charger works most of the time. The case I got is thin and allows the phone to lay flat on the matt.

Joey

I have a tendency to lay my iPhone 6plus in the same charging pad but never notice it charging. Is there an icon that I should watch in the phone? I have a black interior and a black faced iPhone that I don't notice it falling to the back every time I open the ice box.

Did u get a thin case that has a Qi charging coil and a battery backup.
If so that sounds like the best deal for our $1000 iPhones.
Where did u get it?
How much?

I have a 2015i Platinum and have been playing with multiple cases to see which one works best on my caddy. What i found is that no two cases are alike and even two of the same exact cases act differently. I've purchased 5 different cases for my iPhone 6 and found this case to work the best in my car and even with my other charging pads I've purchased for my night stand and office desk. Its called BEZALEL and i purchased it on amazon.

I found this case to work fairly consistent but there are instances when it doesn't work until i pick it up and lay it back down. I also found I have to rest the bottom of the phone on the rubber bumper stop on the charging pad. I've also discovered that all these qi wireless charging pads are very sensitive in the way they behave but due to the the inherent limitations with wireless charging, the phone or case must rest completely flush with the charging pad. This is due to the science of mutual induction and therefore not much can be done when your phone will not rest in the space provided by cadillac.

I've got a Qi charging thingy on my iPhone 5S and it will only very rarely pick up a charge from the center wireless charger. was excited to have this work, but alas, seems very finicky. will tray the case from Bezalel and see if it works better

I have a Nexus 6 with a Bear Motion case (phone has native wireless charging). Its as big as an iPhone 6 plus and it fits and charges great in our 2015i.
Also charges our Nokia Windows phone no problem.

I have a Samsung S6, which is Qi integrated right out of the box. With no additional protective case on it, it charges every time I place it on the console mat.

I bought an Otter Box protective case for it. With the Otter Box case installed on the phone, it is hit and miss (mostly miss) as far as induction charging.

I removed the rubber console pad, and bought a very thin black mouse pad and cut the mouse pad to the exact size needed to replace the rubber pad. I 'secured' the new charging mouse pad via small pieces of double faced masking tape, so that when the console lid is opened, the mouse pad does not fall off. I believe it looks 'cleaner' and better than the rubber pad. Using this new setup, the Samsung S6 with the Otter Box case on it charges every time. The phone and the mouse pad have enough 'friction' between them so that the phone does not slide around on the pad.

The only problem with my Samsung S6 is the movement of the phone during driving and loses contact and does not charge.
