The whole forum is concerned with first world problems.Nope, sorry, first world problem with which we shall not be bothered.
This is the first thing to check. Is the phone and the Volt compatible? iPhones were not with the earlier wireless chargers.My iPhone X fits but doesn't charge so I'm not sure your 8 would either even if it did fit. I just plug in the USB cable to charge and access CarPlay at the same time.
FWIW, even a raving pinko international socialist like myself can see that the OP's question is a reasonable one for this forum. Now back to the barricades!Yes, but, some topics are more first worldly than others.
