Carista OBD2 iOS App Details

Carista is a mobile app which empowers you to seamlessly diagnose, customize, and service your car. Just plug in your OBD2 adapter, launch the app, and save time and money on dealers and mechanics. Free Features: • Diagnose: Carista checks your vehicle's health and enables you to clear any fault codes to reset your “check engine" light. You can also ensure you are ready for emissions testing. Paid Features (supported vehicles only): • Diagnose: Unlike regular OBD2 apps, Carista gives you access to advanced manufacturer-specific diagnostics related to various vehicle electronic control units (ECU) such as ABS, airbag, immobilizer, navigation, and traction control. • Customize: Carista lets you personalize the way your car behaves. Say you want your headlights to come on automatically when you start the engine; or you want the doors to lock when you start moving; or you want to change the type of beep that the reverse parking sensors make. It’s as easy as customizing the settings on your smartphone. • Service: Carista gives you access to electronic service tools for your car. You can reset the oil & inspection service indicators, service your electronic parking brake (EPB) to replace your brake pads by yourself, and see your launch control count. Is my car supported? See: Hardware Requirement: In order to use Carista, you need an OBD2 adapter - a separate piece of hardware that you plug into the vehicle's diagnostic port under the dash. You can use the Carista OBD2 adapter or a generic ELM327 v1.4 WiFi adapter (just make sure it’s not fake/defective; note that generic Bluetooth adapters are not supported). See: Pricing: All paid features are available with an in-app purchase of our Pro functionality: a 1-week pass for $9.99 or an auto-renewable annual subscription at $39.99 USD (auto-renewing can be disabled in your Account Settings in iTunes after the purchase). If you use the official Carista OBD2 adapter, you will receive a free one-month trial of all paid features.

iOS App Reviews

  • Must have for anyone with a VWAG product

    By Io333333
    Many of the VW/Audi defaults are incredibly annoying. This app will let you customize the behaviors of all the automated BS to be the way YOU want it to be. I probably would have sold my car without this app. New cars are AWFUL with all the computerized "features" constantly beeping and flashing at me, turning things on and off when I don't want them too, etc. This app and the genuine Carista adapter have been worth every penny, and then some. I also use the adapter with other apps to dig performance info out of the car's brain, check and reset fault codes, etc.
  • Slowest app on this planet

    By peter.alt
    I really tried and was hoping to customize some of the behavior of my Jetta (2017). I purchased a compatible ODB II adapter (double checked reviews and compatibility list on Carista website to make sure it works) and was full of excitement. Connecting the dongle and starting the app was fine, but man, the app is slow. Even just reading the diagnostics took 10 minutes. I tried to see what modifications are available for my car, but I gave up after 20 min when the progress eventually hit 24%. I tried a second time and almost made it back up to 24% but a stupid gesture when swiping to the left (by accident!) caused the whole progress to reset. In short, I have not been able to use this app at all. Good marketing department, but lousy engineering team.
  • No American cars?

    By DikoObraZ
    No support for American cars, please add American cars to customization list.
  • Great Device/App

    By cloudmusic
    I have a MKV VW GTI , I was able to set all the custom features I wanted. It's good for about 99% of what you would use a VCDS which would be much more. I used it to reset an airbag fault, and settings for controlling the windows and roof with the key fob. Customer service was great too I emailed them and they responded the next day.
  • Works great on my MK5 & 6 GTI's!

    By Teh Falcon
    Awesome app for quick diagnosis on my elm obd adapter. Would be awesome in more coding options were available though.
  • It works great!

    By jonatj
    I own a 2017 VW Golf 1.8TSI and wanted to tweak some of the factory settings. In just 10 minutes I enabled comfort windows, set auto-flashing turn signals and passenger mirror down on reverse. VCDS from Ross Tech and ODBEleven are great tools for doing this type of modification. But cost and level of technical knowledge requirements are pretty high. The Carista ODB-II Bluetooth dongle and app were cheap and easy. It just worked out of the box and I didn't need to understand long coding or complex steps. If you want to do simple customizations, read engine faults or want to dip your toe in with ODB-II monitoring, this is a great option.
  • VW Golf Owner

    By ljrisner
    Bought a vw 2017 golf and want the key to open the hatch (it's on the key fob but not programmed in the control computer). Bought springed struts and took car to dealer to enable remote hatch opening - no luck. Bought Carista but it does many other things but no hatch control so I contacted Carista and they programmed this into their next release and it works great. There are also many other nice features available but the golf model must be equipped for accordingly for some to work. I am very happy not having to fuss with dealer and also the minimal cost to be able to access many additional features. I don't and hope I won't need this to diagnostic the car. With springed struts the hatch is a bit harder to close but it's worth it the key operated opening. Big "high five" for Carista programmers!!
  • Cons outweigh the pros

    By jptomberlin
    Bought the device to modify the beeping when I put my 2010 Prius in reverse. That worked like a charm. Made the mistake of running the diagnostics. Now I have a Brake warning light and ABS warning light on my dash permanently. Won't turn off. Guessing I have to take it in to a dealership to have it cleared.
  • Whole lotta wait for a whole lotta nuttin'

    By Priusodb2scan
    Was hoping to see what I could change on my Prius and I have been looking at different scan tools. Came across this one that the Pro feature would be able to change a number of "dealer only" settings. Yeah! Finally someone who has done some good work! So I ran the scan.... 10 minutes later.... nothing. Well, very little, as in the free features. Ok, so lets in-app purchase the pro features? ... crickets. Can't find it. Wasted a lot of time to get no where. Maybe I'm missing something, but from my experience this was not intuitive.
  • Great app for tweaks without Vagcom

    By Eskimo2k
    I just had a remote starter installed in my VW CC and wished the car would remember the seat heater settings from when it was shut off (they default to off at each startup). Sure enough there's a setting in the VW computer for seat heater retention and a few minutes with this app and $10 later my seat heaters now come back on to where they were set when the car shut off. Since the $10 gets me a week of pro access I'll look around tonight and see if there are any other settings I want to change. The app worked perfectly with my generic wifi OBD adapter.
