Shocking really should be a fast charger for the price of this car!

It is what it is. A fast charger may have cost 拢1.00 more and would have been manufacturer specific so the accountant's computer said NO. Get used to 'corner cutting'. Some more enlightened manufacturers provide wireless charging plates in different 'flavours' to accommodates specific manufacturers. Ford do not.

Please note that there is no single "fast-charging" technology, each company (such as Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi etc) has its own protocol. So I'm guessing that the in-car wireless charger defaults to the Qi standard and its nominal charging rate, which admittedly is much, much slower than Samsung's own fast-charger.

I put my Galaxy A21S on the wireless charging pad and nothing happens,does the pad have to be activated ? or is it automatic detection ? the phone is fast charging Qi equipped.

I notice that the phone does not sit fully flat down on the mat,due to the phones camera being slightly raised above the rear of the phone.

The wireless changing just works. I've charged iPhones and OnePlus android phones on it. If you remove the rubber cover from the charging area can you see the wireless pad underneath?

thanks for replying. Yeah i have tried another phone and still no joy. Both work on other wireless charging docks. I havent tried to restart the phone though. By 'restart' do you mean just turn on and off?

okay thanks i'll try that. I've even reset Sync in the car itself and that didnt work. I've contacted Ford and they just said take it in for them to have a look.
Sync says its all up to date, cant understand why it all of a sudden stopped working.
