Updated wireless phone charging for your GM vehicle

Problem: the factory charger in your 2013-up General Motors vehicle isn't compatible with iPhone 8® and iPhone X®. Brandmotion's FDMC-1285 wireless charger kit fits right under the factory charger pad in select GM models, updating your vehicle's wireless charger without modifications to the vehicle. You'll be able to charge your Qi-compatible smartphone without searching for that hard-to-find charging cable while you're driving.

How it works

Once you've installed the charger module in your vehicle, simply place your smartphone on the factory charging mat, and you're good to go. The inductive charging system powers up your phone's battery. And once the battery is topped off, the charger will trickle power to the phone as needed. If you don't have a phone that's Qi-compatible, you can select one of Brandmotion's Qi adhesive coils or Qi-compatible phone sleeves, which work with this charger.

Install overview

Since you're simply replacing the charging module, you'll be able to retain the factory charging mat. You'll remove a couple panels, screw in the new module, and plug it into the factory harness. Brandmotion created explicit, illustrated instructions for your GM vehicle. The final result is a seamlessly integrated phone-charging system in your coupe, sedan, truck, or SUV.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Brandmotion FDMC-1285 Qi replacement charging kit is designed to replace the factory wireless charger in select 2015-2018 GM vehicles, allowing it to now work with Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone X smartphones.

Qi: The FDMC-1285 uses the Qi wireless charging standard to charge compatible phones. Qi works by using inductive charging technology to charge select smartphones without the need for connecting a wired charger.

Functionality: Designed to replace the factory wireless charging module, the FDMC-1285 reuses the factory non-slip charging mat that securely holds the phone while driving, and won't interfere with the vehicle's Bluetooth functionality while using the vehicle infotainment system. An audible tone will be produced when the phone is engaged to charge, and after charging to 100%, the charger will then taper off to avoid overcharging.

Installation: The FDMC-1285 is designed to be a direct bolt-in replacement part, reusing the factory mounting location and wiring connector. All hardware for installation, along with installation instructions are provided.
