I will for sure. I plan on testing charging, without using the phone, as well as while either playing music or Nav or both. Granted, my Note 8.0 serves as my dedicated music player, while in my own car, but my phone is usually where I run NAV, since it is the only one with data connectivity, while on the road.
As of right now, my Kidigi mount doesn't charge the phone, when Nav is being used, so I'm anticipating similar results with the Wireless charger. If it does charge, while using Nav, then it's definitely a win, for me. Anything beyond that will just be gravy.
The more I started thinking about this, rather than buying a whole knew mount, for those of you that have the Arkon Ultra Slim Universal mount, you could probably make a "custom" wireless charging dock, since the ultra slim universal comes with longer prongs. This is all that would be needed:

Amazon.com: Mini Qi Wireless Charger Transmitter Charging Pad/Mat/Plate for Nokia Lumia 920 Nexus 4/5 iPhone 4/4S Samsung Galaxy S3/Note 2 with Blue LED indicator: Cell Phones & Accessories
Glue any of those (or any other "ultra thin" qi charger) to the back plate of this mount:

The bottom portion of the mount is the one that expands, in order to place a device in the holder, but it also comes with extra long holder legs, so that it can accomodate tablets. I know because I use it for my Note 8.0. Even though the one I bought is much simpler and less work, there are ways that people can save some money if they're already using the Arkon Ultra Slim mount. What's great is that, with a Wireless Key charging back, one would essentially get a "dock and go" setup because the microUSB to power the Qi charger would be placed in the Qi transmitter.
