When I bought my car, I paid for the 12months subscription and used it to enable a few function's my car (e.g. Needle sweep, alarm beep, fog lamp on during turning etc), but that's expired now, so was looking to re-purchase, but was thinking is it worth using something else, as I know with carly you can pay a bit extra and can use on other makes (as my wife has a Mercedes) plus Carly gives a better description of the fault code, but with Carista and OBD11 you can use it to do dpf regens etc, so they all have there pro's and cons.What do you want to do?
I started with VCDS, too damn difficult for me. Carista does all I want.They all have their Pro's and Con's. Some are more simple and easy to use, some work with non-VAg cars, some allow long coding. You need to look at each and decide what suits your needs best. I started with VCDS then Carista then OBDeleven.
I've looked a VCDS and feel the same as you. I've used Carista before to enable a some features but my subscription expired, so hence seeing if something else around, as may need to requirement to do Battery registrationI started with VCDS, too damn difficult for me. Carista does all I want.
Ok thanks, the email I got back from Carista yesterday said that to do Battery registration the 'Pro Version' is required which is the paid subscription, so will check with them again.Me too. Couldn't do battery registration with Carista so went to local vw audi specialist. £20. (Watched it done, it isn't simple).
Me too I changed battery and got Audi to code it. I see Halford offer replacement battery with coding. Not sure I would trust them to change a fuse :-(Me too. Couldn't do battery registration with Carista so went to local vw audi specialist. £20. (Watched it done, it isn't simple).
