Well, this is a revelation! Seems Ikea can sell you a wireless charger that fits under a desk and still work, but Genesis cannot provide a charger that will charge through even a very thin piece of plastic. Terrible!!

What phone do you have. There's a known issue with iPhone 12 not wanting to charge wirelessly with or without a case. The fix is to reboot your iPhone and see if that helps. If you google iPhone 12 not charging wirelessly there are tons of pages about it.

I have the iPhone 12 Pro Max. However, from what I have seen from others, it is not exclusive to the 12s.
I have several wireless chargers at home--brand name and no-name, and all work well with my 12!

No issues with Samsung Galaxy 21 or Flip 3. Both have cases on them.
I think it has to do with the Magsafe charging on the newer phones. I did see this recently...

Apple's MagSafe chargers do support the Qi wireless charging standard, but only up to 7.5 W, which is far short of what current Qi EPP chargers are capable of providing.

So not sure if that has something to do with not being able to go through a case or not. But positioning seems to be a factor for the 12 pro max at least. You have to have it in just the right spot to use the GV80s Qi pad.

It actually works. Face left or face right, it works. I have to adjust L&R just a bit, but at least it works. Unbelievable!


Now, what to do with my Otterbox MagSafe Defender case and my very nice, but cheap Blue leather case? Anyone interested? Half price plus actual mail charges.

Both for iPhone 12 Pro Max

I tried totalleecase on my iPhone 12 max. Still no luck with case on. Charges fine with case off.

I have the Totallee also. have to slide the 12 Pro Max toward the driver slowly about ½ to ¾ inch to get it to work.
I'll use the Totallee, BUT only try to charge when I really need it--never routinely. The GV80's worst feature!

My theory is that it either has the coils too far from the surface, or the power is just not enough to 'reach' the phone. The latter is the most probable and could be increased by software.

Embarrassing if u ask me. I can’t wait to go back to BMW or Mercedes- Genesis has too many quality issues that make it less than luxurious… I rather pay more money and get what I want / features work.

Every feature works except the wireless charging. I do not care, as I will likely never need it. If the time comes that I need a charge, I carry a charge cord in the glove box. Haven't needed it in 15 months!

I have seen one of two of your posts and I see your not happy with your Genesis. Fortunately for me, I have not had any issues with mine. Everything works on my car and I love it. I traded in a 4 year old Audi, and I will never go back. I have seen people with a lot of issues here, but I have also seen plenty of issues on the Audi forums. Check out the resale value of your GV as you might be surprised what you can get for it. Used cars are still hard to come by and this one is in demand.

I would say I’m disappointed. This is year 3 of production for the GV80 and would have thought a lot of kinks would have been worked out by now. I get compliments for the car and again, beautiful aesthetically but also I expect for the price of the vehicle that things are just going to work the way they should. I’m happy for those on the forum who have had no issues but there are seemingly too many that have. As u stated, not to say the big boys don’t have their issues as well but seemingly Genesis brand is still trying to find its way in the luxury car segment quality wise. I’m going to take your advice and see if I can unload the car -I only have 208 miles on it after 2 months-car has full ceramic coating - 9 year paint protection. It was even a chore to get the illuminated door scuff plates-that was another trial-but they look great on the vehicle as opposed to what came stock.
