Just ordered one of these, looks perfect for charging and ACP while keeping the phone in a non slip position. Will post photos once arrived and setup. Hats off to the guy who designed this.
No disrespect at all to the maker of this pad but it’s not needed IMHO. There is no wireless support for ACP in the Velar yet, you have to plug the phone into the USB port in the central cubby for it to connect. This of courses also provides power to the phone.

The ‘hidden’ storage area behind the lower touch screen is rubberised and has raised edges so your phone won’t fly out... even when driving like a loon around tight bends.

Unless I’m missing something here ?

We use the storage area behind the lower screen for sunglasses and the square phone cubby that this dock fits in was mostly worthless for us.

FWIW the same etsy store has a wired version of the same phone dock that we have been very pleased with:

Yeah its the wired version I have bought, Ive found the loose USB cable and the inconvenience of leaving the phone in the cubby hole a bit annoying and this guys solution looking good. Time will tell.

Ah :) that’s what I was missing. A dock version not the wireless version 👍🏼

The wired version looks good/useful!

Out of interest, in the pictures for the wireless version it shows and states the armrest will slide... I wasn’t aware the Velar armrests slide? Was/is this an optional extra?

Standard as far as I know. Lift the catch at the front & they will slide forward to cover the cup holders (but leaves an ugly gap at the back IMHO, so best to go with the cup holder cover & leave the armrest at its rearmost position).

I assume that all models have sliding armrests as it isn't listed as an option on our invoice. I'd point out the wired etsy dock does make it a little tricky to slide or lift up the driver's side armrest. It's not a huge deal for us as we simply access the storage area from the passenger side armrest.

This is why I love this forum! Had no idea this was possible and was annoyed only last weekend I couldn’t move it to make myself more comfortable while driving! Thank you!

A candidate for the “What is the feature you discovered by accident and love the most” thread perhaps? Well, not quite by accident [emoji23]
