2015 model year Toyota Camry to have wireless charging available as an option

Wireless charging in cars is not new, but it is not so widespread either. By now at least, one might expect to see it as a feature in some of the more affluent brands. However, most automakers have been focused more on the automation and integration with mobile in general rather than a “nice to have” feature.
Toyota brought wireless charging to its Avalon vehicles for the 2013 model year, the company chose to incorporate the Qi wireless charging standard. Toyota has continued with that standard as it brings wireless charging to the 2015 model year Camry vehicles.
The wireless charging can be turned on via a toggle button as part of Toyota’s “ebin” features. Since Toyota has chosen the Qi standard, those of you with a Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nokia Lumia 920, Nokia Lumia 928 or Lumia Icon, to name a few, will be right at home.
The 2015 Toyota Camry is not yet available, but you can expect to see it make its debut sometime this summer.

I don't listen to the radio and play my music almost exclusively from the phone when driving. A car charger is a must. Especially when you're streaming your audio through bluetooth. And don't even get me started with the phone's GPS (although I would imagine this car has its own GPS).

I love old cars -- no gizmos, no gadgets, no gimmicks. Driving is about the journey, about the people in the car, not a bunch of zombies with their heads jacked into The Matrix.
