Default Did you know about the Carista app?

'Sup everyone! We made an Android app called Carista OBD2 that allows you to change your own customizable settings on your A5. That includes the "dealer-only" settings like windows up/down via remote, parking sensor tones, coming-home lights, etc. (see list below). Carista can also do Audi-specific diagnostics of all computers in the car (incl. ABS, airbag, navigation, etc.). The app runs on Android phones and tablets; we're starting development on an iOS version now.

Just wanted to tell you guys that this app exists. You can play with your car's settings as much as you want with it. It's not free: it costs $19.99 for the Pro Package, which gives you the ability to change settings and do Audi-specific diagnostics. Once you buy it, you have unlimited access to changing settings and doing diagnostics as many times as you want on as many cars as you want (incl. supported VW, Audi, Toyota, Lexus, and Scion models). The app lets you see what customization settings are available on your specific car before you buy the Pro Package.

The hardware that you need is a generic ELM327 Bluetooth dongle ($10ish) that plugs into the diagnostic port inside the car, under the dash. See some examples here.

So the total cost is around $30 for unlimited use. Compare that to going to a dealer ONCE or buying expensive computer software and cables and lugging a laptop around.



Here's a sample customization (adaptation) list from a user's 2009 Audi S5 (Canadian model). Your settings may vary depending on equipment and market. Note that we do not yet support "coding", just "adaptations"; however, we're working on adding coding as an option and it will come as a free update to existing customers.

You can set it to comfort-close the convertible top when you hold down the lock button on the remote - is that what you were referring to? However, if that setting is disabled by "coding", then changing the "adaptation" with Carista will not do anything. If you're not sure, PM me and I'll give you a free trial. For everyone's reference, we're working on adding the ability to change "coding" with Carista as well.

Right now it's just for Android. We're just starting to work on an iPhone version of the app now... so it'll probably take at least a few months to get it released. Might have a beta-test version available sooner, but I don't want to make any promises quite yet.

Coding capabilities are coming soon. Anyone interested in beta-testing them? (free of charge, of course)

Any chance you can add "Voice Control On/Off". It gets disabled on the Cabriolet's by default in the US and there are tons of requests to turn it on.
