Mopar’s in-vehicle wireless charging technology for portable devices is one of six finalists for the AOL Autos Technology of the Year award, which honors manufacturers of automotive technology who have excelled in the categories of active safety, connectivity, telematics or fuel economy, according to Mopar.

Judges from several organization such as AOL Autos, Autoblog, Engadget TechCrunch and others, chose the Mopar device as one of the six finalists after reviewing more than 40 product nominations. Other nominees include Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive, Chevrolet MyLink Valet Mode and Volvo Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection with Full Auto Brake.

Mopar’s wireless charging technology, which is installed just below the center stack and in front of the center console of the vehicle, works with iPhone and Blackberry, as well as other MP3 players and Droid-based devices. The product has a built-in charging grid that is activated when customers place their battery-powered devices on it, according to Mopar. The charger is available for the 2013 Dodge Dart.
