    One comment, if anyone's still digging in this--it seems obvious in retrospect, but the magnets in this totally screw up the compass

    If you take the coil out, after about 30 minutes the phone seems to reset, but while it's in there, forget about getting accurate directions.

    GPS compass does still work, and nav seems to be ok, but other apps that rely just on the magnetic compass (like ISS Finder) are likely to be toast.

    I don't have any problems with navigation with the coil in place. I suppose if I were to go hiking or something that actually needed the compass I can always just take it out temporarily.

    Ok folks, I got one of these and a few touchstone chargers. The only problem is that with it installed and plugged in I never get the popup and never get a charge. I've verified that it is installed correctly and that the contacts are touching. Any ideas on what I am missing?

    Edit: Apparently the USB cable I was using had an issue. Seems to be working now with a different cable.

    Glad you got it worked out. Are you using a case?

    I just ordered this aluminum bumper I hope to have it in the next week or so.

    It will not. You need to get the palm inductive coil for the S4 to charge with a Touchstone.

    I'm probably going to be getting an S4 in the next few weeks and this is very cool! I didn't even think of doing something like this with the phone.

    This option says it won't affect the NFC features of the phone and also uses an "original" Samsung back cover.

    I would love to see a comparison picture of two S4's, one with the wireless charging back case on and one without it to see what, if any, difference in thickness there is.

    The same door goes on the back. But there's a slight bulge in the middle with the coil in place. Refer to my original pictures on the first post.
