About the Scosche TAQ02
Secure wireless phone charging for your Tacoma
Secure wireless phone charging for your Tacoma
Scosche's TAQ02 combines the convenience of the MagicMount™ phone mounting system with the functionality of a Qi (pronounced "chee") wireless charging system. Top it off with the fact that Scosche designed this charger to fit right in the front console location in your Toyota Tacoma, and you've got a charger that looks like it came right from the factory. You'll need to remove a few panels and drill a hole, and Scosche includes the "T" harness for your Toyota's wiring — eliminating the need to cut and splice. Once it's in, you'll be able to charge your Qi-compatible smartphone without searching for that hard-to-find charging cable while you're driving.
What you need
You'll need a phone that includes the Qi charging system, or you'll need to add a Qi-compatible USB coil, battery cover, or charging sleeve to your existing smartphone. This MagicMount system includes the MagicPlate™ to attach to your case or directly to the back of your smartphone, so it'll stay in place as you drive around town. Scosche includes the detailed instructions for your installation, as well as a template for the placement of the MagicPlate magnets.
Note: This charger is not compatible with Tacomas that have a manual transmission or bench-seat models that do not have a center console.
This charging system will require permanent modifications to your vehicle's console. These modifications aren't visible upon the completion of the installation.

Scosche TAQ02 reviews
Product works exactly as designed. the mold for the qi charger is a bit small if you have a phone like the google pixel 3 xl in a case. but will still charge the phone just has to sit at a slant inside the qi charger. would give it 5 stars if no drilling was required to make the wire fit thought the existing trim panel. took me about 10 mins to tear down everything than 5 mins to mark and drill the hole for the type C cable. another 10 mins to test fit and button up everything. Would recommend if you like me want the new features on the 2016+ Tacoma's but like the 05-2015 model year better. Happy Tacoma now. Thanks Crutchfield for the good quality products and timely shipping to Hawaii.
Pros: Does Qi charge the Pixel 3XL will come with backing plates for the Samsung S9 and S9+ among other little plates. plates not required to qi charge.
Cons: drill a small hole but at least you wont see the hole.

I would love to give this 5 stars. Seems like an awesome product and would absolutely solve my issue of having charger cords in the way, yet it does not fit with a manual transmission
Pros: Qi charger works great, no cords in the way
Cons: Doesn't fit Manual Transmission

I got this to upgrade my Tacoma and to have an easy way to charge without cords hanging all around. It does just that. Its a nice edition however you will need to remove a fair amount of your center console and dash to install this. It doesnt fit exactly side to side snugly but does stay put. Given its a darker area the gaps aren't too notable but are there. All in all I think it will be a good add on to my vehicle.
Pros: Does exactly what it should do
Cons: Minor gaps on the sides

Qi Wireless Charging: Qi (pronounced "Chee") is the global standard for smartphone wireless charging. Wireless charging uses electromagnetic fields to safely transfer power from a transmitting source (such as the MagicMount Wireless Charge) to a receiving device (Qi-enabled smartphones or add-on wireless charging accessories.) to wirelessly charge the device's battery.

A MagicPlate Template Guide is also provided to make sure you position the MagicPlate(s) in the proper location.
Note: The included MagicPlate should be installed on your Qi-enabled device to avoid interfering with wireless charging functionality. It is not recommended with use of a wallet case, and should not be used with any hard-drive based devices.
Mounting Options: The Scosche MagicMount Charge comes with a mounting cradle where the Qi wireless charger will install. The MagicMount Charge OEM vehicle specific models are designed to fit perfectly in your compatible vehicle. It replaces the vehicle's factory tray in the front center console without modification and provides a factory OEM appearance.
Wiring Harness: The Scosche MagicMount Charge OEM includes a 5' T-harness for your vehicle that integrates into your factory wiring. The T-harness has a USB-C connector which plugs into the MagicMount Charge.
