How to Use the Wireless Phone Charging in the New Land Rover Lineup

Carrying a smartphone has become a part of everyday life, and keeping it charged can be a challenge. Most cars provide electrical sockets or USB ports where you can plug in your phone. Rather than fumbling with wired chargers, several Land Rover and Range Rover models make it easier to charge your phone. We're excited to let everyone in Glen Cove NY know how to use the new wireless charging options.

The new 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport offers wireless phone charging through a unique charging pad. The built-in mat is located in the center console and holds the phone securely in place. It's large enough to fit smartphones in a range of sizes.

This wireless technology makes use of Qi standards for the wireless transfer of power through resonant inductive coupling. The mobile device must be designed for wireless charging, so check your phone model for compatibility. The charging mat provides up to 15W of power and is only available on models with certain trim levels.

The new Discovery along with the 2018-2020 Range Rover Velar, Range Rover, and Range Rover Sport comes with the option of adding a wireless phone charging cupholder. The charger is located on the center console, and it keeps the phone in plain view. It can accommodate phones up to 2.83 inches wide.

When you place your Qi-compatible Android or iOS smartphone into the cupholder, it'll charge at 15W. There's an LED light that comes on while charging and turns off when fully charged. The charging cupholder cannot be used to connect to InControl Apps or while using Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. A dealer like us must professionally install this optional accessory at Land Rover Glen Cove.

As you can see, the newer Land Rover models offer wireless charging capabilities. Depending on which one you own or plan to purchase in Glen Cove NY, you'll be able to choose between a charging mat or charging cupholder. Either option is made to hold your phone securely, so it doesn't slide or fall out of reach. Just be sure that your phone is Qi-enabled so it's compatible with the wireless charging station.
