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. Pricing: All paid features (see below) 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. 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).

  • Excellent to keep in the glovebox

    By jordy_wd
    I have the full version of VCDS, and whilst Carista doesn’t have the full functionality of it, it is a great tool to keep in the toolbox or glovebox for on-the-go diagnostics or simple tweaks. It seems to be getting regular updates too which is promising for long-term support.
  • Excellent piece of kit 👌🏼

    By !rayboy!01
    Great gadget for customising your car and also finding faults when your Eml light is showing. So simple to use aswell
  • Rear parking images for A5

    By Nick-Blanchflower
    Hi before I purchase have seen comments that the parking sensors shows an image on a beta version. Is this now available?
  • Great app!

    By Cflo6275
    Great app, can’t fault it, I also have VCDS and use carista as an “on the go” tool when the laptop is not available, it currently has nowhere near the same functionality as VCDS but is a great addition to use along side it, however, I was lucky enough to be able to purchase this at a small one off cost early in its development and would probably not have paid for it with a subscription system, it is a good tool though!
  • Excellent App/device

    By Agussy
    Ordered the Bluetooth adapter for £9:99 on Amazon which came with a 1 month trial. Connected to my VW T5.1 with ease and changed a few settings. Great product.
  • Carista Audi A4 B8 👍

    By Alinpreda
    Absolute outstanding device Done all future on my car.👍👍👍👍
  • Works well on Audi A5

    By Bunchy07
    Bought the CARISTA OBD2 adapter and pro subscription. Works well and is simple to use. The customisation is a brilliant option which drew me to the product.... however it appears unless you are a "Beta" user you can't customise the newest options added for the B8 Audi A5 such as the Audi Parking System parking distance visualisation signal. Have emailed CARISTA and await to hear back from them. That is hence the 3 stars would be definitely more if this had worked.
  • Very good for my mk5 golf done a lot

    By the player of bounce tunez
    Love it done boot pop and some custom stuff just needs more now 👌😜
  • Don't work

    By Scott's collis
    Can't connect to my Audi when other apps can.
  • Terrible

    By Adam Loth
    Can't even read data from a 2008 Fiesta but other apps can. Pure rubbish.
