    im currently looking into Carly for BMW i think its the way forward for simple and full all modules BMW diags right across the bmw board to present cars and you use it as an app on android or iphone with the correct suitable wireless interface so its very portable (older models need to be hardwired still to recode for stability), it seems there is little or no setting up the interface at all or arsing about, it's just plug n play self updating and new coding features etc are constantly being released by the developers...


    its getting great reviews everywhere from users it's lightweight and very functional compared to the bulky and bloated laptop based DIS/GT1


    Carly for BMW - The Most Powerful BMW App Solution


    works with cheaper certain version ELM and Vgate etc wireless interfaces too if you want it as a mundo cheap setup...the standalone diags lite app is free but the full app with the coding is 40 quid...

    iphone/ios it has to be used via a wifi type dongle...

    Just had a look at the website, looks great. Shame that you can't seem to programme new options

    its evolving all the time with newer updates and options so its a stick with it and all will come eventually anyway via the android auto updates...the developer is very hands on too with queries and feedback...

    That's great to hear.

    I'd be running it on IOS, might have to invest.

    I have Carly for BMW.

    Its quite slow at the moment but its a good bit of kit.

    The only issue i have with it right now, is knowing what things are and what they do. Its all great saying "controls corner light for drs" but it doesnt explain what that thing actually is. So little teathing issues.

    Also when i tried to write some new options to my lights to attempt to disable corner lights all together as mine are broken, it said "cannot write code" which was a little annoying.

    But yeah easily 12-24 hour response with any issues which is great

    I've looked at the Carly website and not sure if it can be used to turn on the indicators in the HUD. I have a 2007 650i.

    I used a carista on my VW and it has messed it up totally. There are a few things I changed using that and the app says things are on when they aren't, almost a year later and I am still speaking to them regarding fixes.

    You can see I'm nervous using anything like that again.

    Any thoughts appreciated thanks

    I'm looking at buying this soon (days) as it says it can force DPF Regen 'at the click of a button' and as I'm the new owner of a 2007 325d I don't know when it was last done.
    It would also be worth the price of it just to know what other faults there are in the system so I can work on clearing them before they start to cause too much of a problem elsewhere.
    As long as the app works as it should...

    Anyone else been using this recently ?
