    Read it the other day, could be interesting although doesn't do some of the more detailed coding by the sounds of it

    Loads of people on the audizine forums are using it successfully, from what I gather it very much depends on luck of the draw with the Bluetooth devise.
    some work and others are a load of tosh. ive ordered 1 from Fleabay so will report my findings on if it works.
    I just want to enable dial sweep and a couple of other simple changes which are not available through my audi concert

    they are beta testing the IOS version at the mo
    I have an S5 so will give it a try and post results on here.

    if it works its well worth it for people who don't want to spend £350 on ross-tech kit for change a couple of setting.
    No doubt the Ross-tech stuff is much more in depth etc but this is like a 10th of the cost.

    Just downloaded it and had a play. Seems pretty good I enabled the Needle sweep and the chirp on locking the car. for £15 for the dongle and the same for the software I'd say it's pretty good value.

    I have tried mine but for some reason the app will not connect to the ELM327 thingy.
    I can get the torque app to work so I know the Bluetooth devise is working.
    grrrr. I want the needle sweep :mad: :banghead::keule:

    Damn that sucks, I did look around to see if any other apps had the same functionality but haven't found anything yet. One thing I did see is that if you have Torque running in the background it might interfere with another app trying to connect, might be worth killing all the apps on your device and then just running the carista app?

    I didn't see the dvd lock but as I don't have it I don't know if the scan would pick it up etc.

    MODS: If the like breaks rules etc please remove.

    I just searched and read the reviews, not selling them myself honest. :)

    I like the sound of this for a total outlay of £30. (£15 for the box and £15 for the app)
    I want needle sweep and alarm beep on lock so may give it a go.
    Have liked Carista's FB page and will watch this thread to see how other forumites get on.

    The dvd drive in the boot is in (I think they call it transport mode or something like that) basically the eject button was deactivated at factory to stop people from stealing the sat nav disc,i got a 2014 disc but cant update

    Got my Bluetooth device 5 mins later, dial sweep activated, blip on alarm lock and faults scanned and cleared. Had to pay for the full features but think it's worth it!

    Mine is a 2008 and I've enabled it.
    Think it only does it at night when head lights are on though. Good for the country roads
    Loving the chirp on locking and also enabled the signal flash when windows goes up via the key and brake lights flash and hazards when emergency braking

    Had a play today and enabled gauges swip, passenger mirror drop when in reverse and bip when closing.
    Do you remember what was the option called for fogs as cornering as I didn't see anything like it.

    Pretty much did exactly the same as you, great minds and all that. :) I did ry on my mates MK4 Golf yesterday but it was a year too early so it didn't allow any customisations by it did collect fault codes. Still a very useful app hopefully they will extend the customise options at some point.
