The charger is Qi compatible. That is, it should work with both, Samsung, and IPhone.

I didn't see my new (first phone !) Samsung Galaxy J3 orbit on the qi compatible list. Am I out of luck or should I try it again? Thank yu for the quick reply before

If it's not in the list, it won't work. Sorry to bear the bad news. There are options though.

Thank you all for the replies. I got the phone free with my Tracfone service on a deal for $99 for the year with a large block of MB included for phone/texting/internet. It was a good deal and for that price I can't complain that I will have to use a wire to charge the phone in the car or at home.
I love the car so if that's the worst part about it I'm still very happy !!

Wow, Josuet - That link from Ebay for a wireless charger for my Samsung phone you posted is very inexpensive ! Would I just sit that charger pad on top of the Sorento charging pad and then put my phone on it? Is it that easy ? That would be great.

Yes, it's a great solution.You have to remove your phone's battery lid then place the pad and put the lid back. You'll be able to charge your phone by placing it on the sorento's charging pad or any other Qi compliant wireless charger.
