Question Charging mat too small

Hi, I just bought a used 2018 Impala, with all the bells and whistles and I'm loving it so far (this is my 3rd impala).

So far one of the minor annoyances I've found is the rubber charging mat the phone is supposed to rest on to charge wirelessly. The issue is that the cutout area for the phone is too small for my Galaxy S9+, so it rests up on the lip of the mat and won't charge. If I remove the mat and put the phone directly on the charger it works fine.

Does anyone know if there is another mat I can put in there that will fit bigger phones?

I have done the same thing, just remove that rubber mat but I'm always plugged into the usb inside the arm rest so Android auto is running.

I cut the mat with a razorblade to fit my Note 8, holds it perfect now without making the mat look too wrecked.

Thanks for the info friends. Kind of surprised there is no aftermarket replacement for bigger phones. But I guess its not really a big deal.
