Hi all,

I've just taken delivery of my Kodiaq Edition. I thought it came standard with wireless phone charging but it does not work? I've tried latest Samsung and iPhone and neither charge. I'm guessing I've got it wrong and the phonebox must have been an option? :?

I understand new cars no longer have wireless charging / signal amplifier- it appears there were licencing issues with the amplifier - my new Edition doesn't have it either. So I bought this instead....

It appears to be a UK-only regulatory or licensing problem resulting in the withdrawal from UK specification last year.

FYI, my new Kodiaq came with the wireless charging pad/box, and it works perfectly with my Samsung S7. Unfortunately, I don't expect it to get much use, as I will usually have Waze on the car's screen (using Android Auto), which means the phone has to be plugged in via USB anyway.

My Edition has QI charger and phone LTE amp.
There were some software issues with the functions detecting a phone and turning the amp on - seem to remember topic on this somewhere on this forum.
Mine works fine with Samsung S9+

Also I have looked at the aerial amp functionality and strongly believe it assists in the phone and car connecting via rSAP quicker (not available on iPhones I believe). My phone seems to connect to the Columbus Infotainment system almost instantly via Remote SIM mode when I dock it in the centre console on wireless charger.

Wireless Charging no longer available ?
Picked up my new Edition on Friday 1st March only to find no wireless charging which had been in the spec when I ordered six months previously. Told by dealer Skoda no longer offer this. Perhaps you should check before deciding on a phone .

Did they say why they discontinued it? Is there any problem with the existing one we should know about? I only picked up my 2019 Kodiaq around a month ago.
Thanks,

I asked about it when I order mine in January. Dealer said the phone signal amplifier caused some sort of security problem in that it exposed peoples locations to hackers or something. No idea if that’s true though!
