It seems you're correlating reception to phone temperature. Your cellular reception has nothing to do with your phone overheating, neither does your car. But the sun and charging do have a huge impact on temperature.

Leaving your phone on the dashboard or anywhere else that gets a ton of direct sunlight can cause it to heat up enough to overheat. It's a problem I'll even have on a motorcycle in traffic. It gets even worse if you're charging, especially wireless charging, which is already a heat-generating lossy process.

Your smart can contribute to it through the panoramic roof, but it's not the problem. My recommendation? Put the phone into one of the storage cubbies or down low in a cup holder. :)
