Ratings and Reviews
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 every penny!!!!
Into the second year now and had the adapter fail. The carly team has your back no charge 0$ had it here in a couple days. Never before have i seen a group of people so deadset on making sure u are taken care of. without a doubt the finest in the buisness. You all rock...just renewed the subscription to the every brand and still no complaints. Yes is not cheap but neither was that beautiful german engineered aww inspiring machine. Nor is the dealer repairs. With this little tool you can save thousands of dollars just in the coding of what the dealership charges as a “upgrade” . BMW’s are some of the most complex electrical nightmares ever to be created. A simple .5v bulb can send you into decreased enginge performance mode. A dead battery now ya have a missfire if it starts. The carly app lets you clear it all. View live data open those exhaust flaps fold the mirrors windows up down with the fob and more .. soooo much more ... dont wait just buy it already. If ya dont like it ... well than ur weird and you prolly dont like anything else either..lol... great job carly team ..... keep up the good work....
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
