I wanted the ease of wireless charging in my car and being free from the wires, plugging in everytime I get in/out, and most 12v adapters output 500ma, which isn't much power and slowly charges it.
I ordered an extra charger/dock in hopes it would fit in my cupholder (DT 910), but it doesn't. I decided to use my DT 900 for my car and dock for home.
Luckily the charger takes 12v. I looked at the plug and it's 12v and 0.75a. I cut the wire, and screwed it into an amp I installed earlier. Positive to positive and ground to ground. I plugged the other wire to my charger and now it works in my car! Works great and it actually does recharge about 5-10% battery on my commute. Better than nothing and will help on longer drives!

Keeping your phone to stay on that flat surface doesn't worry you? What if you have to stop fast or take a sharp turn? I'd be afraid of my phone sliding off that and landing between the center console and the front seat

Anyways, I can really attest that with my phone/car setup, it really fits very well and I'm 100% confident of it. I was initially worried about how to arrange it, but it is perfect! If you got a VW golf/sportwagen and a 920... go for it!

Not bad. I think I would like a cleaner install though... Would like to see some sort of mount with wireless charging built in. Do they make something like that (not necessarily Nokia)? If not... someone needs to get the patents rolling. ;)

Has anyone sucessfully been able to pair their 920 with a newer Audi? I just cant seem to get it working correctly. And OP, i were able to do that I'd probably wrap both together using velcro so it wont slide around but good mc guycver skills

ill take quick charge over wireless. I bought this 3.1A USB charger and it charges much faster than wireless or the low power input in the 2012 Fords.

I want to do this as well. I was thinking of using the Energizer Qi Charger and a non-slip pad on top of it. It's good to know you can just hardwire it, because I was initially looking for a 12v universal auto adapter (I found one on Amazon).
I think I'm going to put a non-slip pad on top of it and just mount the charger using strong double-stick tape. I can just sit my phone down and it'll charge. I'm going to have to see if these Energizer qi plates are 12v power in as well.

Unnecessary if you hardwire it:
