Yep that's expected behaviour. It's about getting the full Carplay/Android Auto screen mirroring experience without needing to connect a cable.

As Soeley mentions, one benefit would be allowing the phone to be simultaneously connected to a higher output charger, as the inbuilt USB port can barely maintain the charge of a handset when being used.

Even slicker would be the option to add a wireless charging pad somewhere, completely removing the need to connect a cable to the phone and getting a strong charge while screen mirroring.

Guys, note of caution regarding the 'android version' of those devices that have been linked. I believe they're only for adding wireless functionality to Android head units, not for providing wireless Android Auto connection to other OEM head units.

This is exactly what I have on the Mini. Wireless charger built in to the armrest so for longer journeys pop the iPhone in there and use Waze on Carplay.

Also set up a shortcut so when Carplay switches off the phone rings so I don't leave it in the armrest which I kept doing to begin with.

lol, if only there was somewhere to actually put your phone in the first place though! :lol:

Have seen an aftermarket charging tray for the auto models that fits in front of the shifter. But in a manual car, there just is no where to put a modern smart phone.

Martin does an armrest and I think there is an option to add a charger. Have a look in his shop.

Haha, that's true, although being an auto owner I get to have a smug face while laying my phone in the perfect cubby in front of the shifter.
