I just ordered a CarLinkit 4.0 and a Sighill Wireless Car Charger for my 2022 GLC300 4Matic SUV. I have my fingers crossed. It looks like the charger will fit into the ‘astray‘ compartment and allow me to charge my phone with the lid closed. The CarPlay connection is in the center console so I should be able to hide the adapter in it.

I’ll keep you posted.

Guess what? They work! 🎉 It took me, who doesn’t know anything about cars, less than 5 minutes to have both up and running.

The charger fits snuggly in the console and leaves room for the cup holders. And with the phone charging the cover closes cleanly.

The CarLinkit took less than 30 seconds to popup on my screen. It took less than 30 seconds to pair it with my phone and BINGO! wireless Carplay. Turned the car and phone off, started the phone and then the car and it connected automatically. My only question is why the Carlinkit showed up on my phone as Volkswagen 1234, rather than the Mercedes name that was displayed on the main display.

So for about $200 I have wireless charging and wireless Carplay, no phone or wires in sight 🎉 Pretty happy 😄

I wonder if this will work in my 2018 GLC 300?
If your center console looks like this the wireless charger should fit. I’m not sure where your CarPlay port is. On the 2022 it’s in the storage compartment of the console so the dongle is out of sight.

I am thinking that my vehicle does not have CarPlay. There is a USB port in the console, wonder if that will work
For it to work the car has to have factory installed wired Apple CarPlay. The wireless dongle leverages the factory installed wired version.
