Maybe still worth it
I am adding to my original review which is at the end of this new write up. I have recently been surprised by the makers of the carly app by then sending a massage on the old version of the app offering a free upgrade to the new version of the app with all features unlocked. I have not yet check all the features to make sure they are unlocked for use but i am sure they will be. I will say this app is very handy and with this new development where you may not have to pay every year to use it then i would recommend you get it if you have a bmw. As long as you do not need a yearly subscription and it is a one time payment i say get it other wise read my previous review below.
This company is getting greedier by the minute read my review on the old version of this app. This new version nothing seems to be changed except now they want to to get a subscription of 59 dollars and some change and pay that every year just to diagnose your car or to use your device you bought that also cost 85 to 99 dollars and yes it is also from them. So in other word buy the hardware then pay them 59 dollars a year to be able to use it we need to boycott all purchases until they agree not to be so greedy
So worth it
I know a lot of hooplah has been made about the subscription fee, but honestly it's worth it for what the app allows. For me specifically, I have an R61 Paceman S All 4 Mini. One of the biggest pet peeves for me in the car came down to the gong and alert sounds the MINI makes, constantly interrupting my music in car with nagging reminders. In my case I changed my lights to LEDs and due to their low power consumption the car would notify of bulbs being out that weren't. I'd get at least 5-10 audible canbus errors on average as I drove and the Carly app allowed me to disable the system nag. As well as this, I shut off the seatbelt alert and set my car to auto lock as soon as the ignition went on. Additional touches include setting mirrors to autofold and window control from the fob; lows and fog lights coming on with unlock instead of just the parking lights. Well worth the price in comparison to the cost of an aftermarket audio system (which would remove the mini alerts completely) or purchasing an expensive set of *maybe* canbus free LEDs, on top of the other capabalities. Hoping for future coding to completely disable speed sensitive audio in the car but for now I'm cool with finally being able to drive without my car incessantly nagging me lol this thing is awesome I can't say it enough! Must buy for MINI owners fed up with their car's uppity shenanigans.
Worth the lifetime subscription
I’ve been using Carly for many years now and seen them evolve. I’m very protective about my BMW. I’ve been very happy with the stability of the product. The devs are responsive and quality conscious.
Initially I would tinker around with the settings, tweaking it and customizing it.
Recent my car overheat and went into limo mode while driving in the mountains suddenly. I had the adapter, plugged it in and fired up the app. Within a minute it diagnosed the codes and captured something called sub freeze frames which are specific to BMW and told me what the exact problem was - a failed water pump. It told me exactly when it failed and how long I had been driving without a water pump (less than a mile thankfully). That helped me determine the next steps, I made a few phone calls to get some quotes on installing a new water pump and I had the car towed to the appropriate workshop and I knew exactly what’s needed to be done and I had the best price for the job upfront. No haggling or surprises.
That was the neat part, knowing exactly what was wrong at the right time. I knew I could wait for a few minutes for the engine to cool down and then start the car and move it off the road into the shoulder and I knew that I couldn’t drive it more than a minute. Okay peace of mind knowing exactly what was wrong.
Totally worth the lifetime subscription.
Plus the new digital garage feature is very cool
