We think it’s safe to say that the fewer wires we have to deal with in general, the better. The idea of charging your phone wirelessly in the car is certainly nothing new or radical, as Audi has demonstrated the capability at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) earlier this year. Toyota made it clear that they would not be missing out on this particularly exciting technology, and has already introduced it in their Avalon line of vehicles as of the 2013 model year.
Toyota continues to make wireless charging a priority for their lineup and has promised the 2015 Camry will sport the nifty feature. Assuming the setup will be similar to that of the Avalon, the wireless charging pad will be integrated into the ebin® lid located in vehicle’s center console. Charging is as simple as toggling a switch beneath the lid to turn the system on and placing the phone upon the lid’s high-friction surface. Drivers should have no trouble charging most phones, as they’ve stuck with the Qi standard – the global standard for wireless charging.
Toyota continues to deliver practical and affordable technology in our cars, and we can’t wait to see what else we can expect from the new Camry. Stop by Wondries Toyota to learn more and to check out the 2014 Toyota Camry!
