The limited trim comes with the Wireless Charging pad, Anyway to turn it off?

My phone dies not have wireless charging, I don't want to add to my phone as I plug in to use Android Auto anyway. Just want to turn it off so I can store my phone in that space without it blinking constantly.

If you review the wireless charger installation instructions (see link) you can figure out a way to disable the feature. Will require extensive disassembling of the console. My bias, keep it. Someone you give a ride to will use the feature, as will your next phone. In the mean time, cover the light in black tape.

Just slide the phone towards the left and it will cover the light.

+1, just put a piece of electrical tape over it or just use the phone slot to the right of it
Electrical tape won’t do a anything...it will charge though a thing case, so the thin barrier electrical tape has would have no effect.
That said, I don’t think the pad would effect a non wireless charging phone in any way.

My phone wasn't wireless charging capable either. Bought the $10.00 adapter on eBay for my phone, now I use the wireless pad in the truck. Screenshot_20200412-112017.png

Why hasn’t the OP followed up on this thread?

Thanks all, I have considered all the feedback, was hoping a simple on/off setting was buried somewhere. Sounds like that is a no.
