    Hi TMC community,

    As many of you know already, we're Skyline and we try to make cool stuff for you guys - the TMC Tesla enthusiast community. Our products include Case Friendly Docks and Universal Phone Guides. Unlike the limited Tesla quick connection dock, the Skyline charging dock and guides allows you to charge any phone size with or without a phone case!

    We're in the process of transitioning our products from plastic to precision CNC machined parts. Our docks and universal guides will now be crafted from aircraft grade aluminum, bead blasted and anodized to a stunning finish that will look absolutely awesome in your car! We have our initial samples, and would love to hear your feedback on what color would look best in your Tesla.

    Oh and not to mention, we'll even raffle off 2 free sets! All you have to do is vote in the poll and tag us on social media!

    Skyline
    Choice 1: Silver anodized
    Choice 2: Matte black anodized

    Those look great! Now I’m sad I recently purchased. I would have waited for this!

    Do you still need to purchase the dock/cable from Tesla in addition to this updated dock?

    Thanks. I have an iPhone X with an Apple Leather Case and Model S 2015 85D. I am getting this console below, which is a knock off from the OEM original center console. From my understanding some cases have trouble with the factory Tesla dock connector. My leather case probably won't be an issue since it has an open bottom, but my wife's Otterbox will definitely have issues.

    Are you working on a wireless charger adapter?

    Cases with open bottoms where the case is basically flush with the bottom of the phone should be fine. All other cases would need the skyline dock too.

    Just to confirm, the OEM Model 3 cable in the Tesla shop works with the Model S/X dock?

    It seems the original Skyline dock that is available for sale on their site still required you to buy the Tesla Dock for the connector cable. I am wondering with these new docks if that is still the case?

    With the new docks it will still be the case. You must either purchase a Model 3 cable directly from Tesla at $15 or if you've already purchased the full dock kit for Tesla S/X at $30 you can reuse that cable as well... Let us know if you have more questions!

    I have the first generation drop in console like below. According to Tesla, their connector isn't compatible with it. Is this true? So for this console, I cannot get a smartphone connector?

    We now offer products for older version consoles as well. Please refer to our install page to indicate which version console you have.

    Yes this console will work with a 2014 and any model that didn't come with the center console.
