    Does anyone have the iPhone 8 Plus AND the white center console? I thought I had plenty of room for the new phone when I ordered it but the charging tray is a fraction of an inch too small to accommodate it. But I also have the black cover which takes up some space. I'm thinking of taking it off but I'd like to be sure that will solve my problem. I never cared about the black cover in the first place but it came with the car.

    So does your iPhone 8 Plus lay flat in the porcelain white console?

    Yes, I have an iPhone 8 and an Apple case. My phone lays flat in the charging station without issue. Sometimes it moves right to left and loses connection, but the amber light keeps me informed.

    Looking at the photos of the insert, it looks like it would reduce the size of the tray by much more than the thickness of the plastic at least - removing it is likely to increase the width:

    The original has a widened section which isn't followed by the insert (at least the one above - there might be variants)

    Do you have the 8 Plus or the smaller one?

    I have the tray and it also has quite a tick bottom to it so I would have thought that would reduce the efficiency of the charge too?


    You are correct too in that it definitely makes the volume of the tray smaller.
