A front camera would be good for parking but I would not use the wireless charging much since my phone would be plugged in for Car Play. However, my wife could use it to charge her phone.....

I am definitely going to get the Entune and weather packages-back on the fence for the advanced tech package.

Thanks for all for the input!

This inexpensive holder/charger work just fine for me. Its claw grabs a vent louver nice and tight. It has a simple yet efficient design such that as you set the phone down on its bottom arm it pulls the side arms inward to cradle the phone. Actually pretty ingenious. The Qi charger works well too.

Here's a question... I have the limited hybrid so it comes with the Qi charger. If I have the phone plugged in for Carplay, what takes priority, the charging through the USB cable or the wireless charging? I assume it won't attempt to charge by both methods at the same time. Just wondering if I have the phone plugged in for Carplay, can I just switch the wireless charging pad off?

USB charging will happen whether you want it to or not when connected to the USB data port, best advice is be sure the wireless charger is off before you place the phone on the pad.

If your phone isn't smart enough to sort that out - you need a new phone.
