I replaced one in my 2017 Impala, as mentioned in above messages.
My Galaxy 7s now works and so does my wife's IPhone Max (expect she must
remove the pad to charge because of the large size of her phone).

Yep, old with old one and in with new.

The kit is a customer pay install and is not covered under warranty and is for the most part a plug and play operation. Please note this just replaces the charging module and if your phone doesn't fit the charging pad now, it won't fit after the upgrade.

The msrp of the retrofit kit is $99 usd. Labor time to install is up to your dealer and may vary, but gm recommends basing the time on warranty replacement time. So expect labor to be up to one hour.

Lane14 Did you ever find out if you could add thew wireless charging into your 17' Impala? I have a 15' LTZ and would like to know if I can add it.

hisstory32 In between snow and thaws, I decided to install the updated phone recharger kit.
The kit includes recharger plate and adapter cord. You reuse the rubber pad.
Installation requires the removal of 4 T20 screws. Front screws came out relatively easy.
But the back screws were a PITA. I have big hands and now scunt knuckles. Finally, I made my own
tool with the T20 bit... After all and said is done, it works great for my Samsung. I have yet to try my wife's iphone.

Keller I have a Samsung Note 8 and a 2016 Impala 2LTZ ME. I had to use a razorblade to modify the mat, but the factory 2016 charger charges my Note 8 just fine. It also worked with my S7 Edge and my Note7 before that. I have never had to upgrade anything.

This is what I think of when I read the thread title. Realize I am probably the only one here that thinks that though.

ltlar200 This is one of the features I wish my car came with, I have a 17 LT without the wireless charging, Does anyone know if the plug is there for me to just simply plug the unit into?

hisstory32 Found it online at place for $60.94
with shipping approx $76.00

2016 Impala LTZ Note # 7 in the chart listed shows you can upgrade your 2016-2018 to work like a 2019 vehicle. As the S7 (and others listed) will work in a 2019 now, once you install the upgrade the S7 will work in your 2016-2018.

At least that is how I read the chart, maybe other can chime in with a opinion.

The way I read the chart is the Samsung Galaxy S7 (and S6/S7 Active and the S8/S9 Plus) will not work in my 2016 Impala now but WILL work if I upgrade to the Gen 2 wireless charging.
