no wireless charging with touchscreen package

I picked up my new countryman all4 s today. I paid for the nav package but it did not come with wireless charging???? Dealer said it's an option even thought is is specified under the nav package. has this happened to anyone ? Dealer knocked off $500, but not happy. Does anyone have any guidance on how do handle ? Thanks, Peter

To be honest it is not a big deal ... do you have the arm-rest in the middle? You can easily fit a Qi charger of choice there.

Here we go: 17€ for the genuine Qi charger alone (05), or the full set of components if you need any: https://www.leebmann24.de/bmw-ersatz...=51&bt=51_5621

I have no idea to be honest. You will have to open it up to find out if you need the wires as well.

Actually I might have misread the components set last night. 17€ is the bottom side of the console for the wireless charging part (probably contains the wires). The entire armrest with the actual charger is 350€ ... too much if you ask me.

I have the factory fitted induction charger............. my iPhone 8 Plus is about 1.5mm to long to fit into it so money wasted and I have to have a wandering white USB cable in the car instead so do check that any charger you buy will actually hold your phone.

Mine came with wireless charging with the sat nav (if it says so in the catalog, like mine did, you should make dealer fit that now).
However, my experience with iPhone XS is that it is slow and is in a place you can easily forget the phone on the car (happens a lot with me). Itís good to maintain battery when using gps, but donít expect the behavior of the usb cable.

ro_explorer, do you have access to the under seat storage bins? My car came with none, I’d like to fit these if they are not a stupid price.

Unfortunately there are no more factory fitted under seat storage bins. They (BMW) removed those as a "cost saving" feature but I'm disappointed (as a customer).

Anyway, these guys I found in Germany do have the under seats storage boxes (for both left and right seats apparently (but with BMW price tags on them ):

See item number 07 from this list: https://www.leebmann24.de/bmw-ersatz...=52&bt=52_3988
