Wireless Charging?

Hi guys,

First time/long time. Thanks for all of the great info on the forum.

I can't seem to find either confirmation or denial of wireless phone charging in the RDX. Doesn't seem to be visible in the interior shots online, but I'm thinking that it may be in the storage under the center console? I'm pretty sure this is already available in Acura sedans.

Anyone know if it's available or not on the '19 RDX?

Thanks!

If the Accord has wireless charging, I think there's a really good chance that all upcoming Acura products will have it, or at the very least the option to get it (probably on the Tech trim and above).

Iím 95% sure I seen a review where they mentioned it will offer wireless charging. I think itís pretty much a given at this point in the automotive field.

Wireless charging without wireless AA/Car Play is only halfway there, but is better than nothing.

Yeah, BMW is the first to have wireless CarPlay. I'm hoping by the time my lease is done (2020), Acura will have upgraded their system to support that too.

What exactly do you mean by this? I'm missing something. Isn't AA/Car Play wireless via bluetooth or do you have to hook your device up to the system using a cord? Sorry, never used AA/Car Play before! Thanks!

Not sure about Android Auto, but CarPlay requires that you tether your phone to the USB port. As mentioned, wireless CarPlay is new and the only manufacturer that has it so far is BMW. It supposedly uses in the in-car WiFi to do the wireless after pairing it over Bluetooth.

Upper model TLX and MDX have wireless charging, so it stands to reason that the RDX will too.

I was surprised when I found out AA/CP were wired. Seems very strange they wouldn't have been BT from the start, but then they get to nail you twice with upgrades(corded then BT). I just put a Sony AA/CP unit in my Tacoma. It works pretty well, but it should be wireless for sure.

I do believe only BMW offers wires Carplay and then only in some vehicles. Corded would probably still sound better and not have any lag time. I just wish there was a more hidden area to plug it in like the armrest instead on just some random spot.

Wireless Charging

The new RDX does have wireless charging. See pic below. And really love the black interior on the A-Spec too. Photo credit Gallery: Up-Close with the 2019 Acura RDX A-Spec ? Acura Connected
