Im getting over the fact that I have a 400.00 phone charging system, but heat in electronics is never a good thing unless its by design (like a heater ).

Any insight would be most appreciated.

Repeat... I've noticed that the phone doesn't get hot as long as you make sure the screen is off. You'll notice that once you plug it in it lights up. If you push the button at the top of the phone and make sure the screen is blank before you close your center console the phone shouldn't heat up. At least that's my observation...
