    Update: Still a worthless ap. Won't connect and technical support is worthless. Don't waste your money/ I bought the Carly Universal adapter and the full version and am very disappointed. The number one problem is connection issues. It looses connection constantly. It takes forever to connect. I've uninstalled, reinstalled tried different setting and it constantly disconnects. You spend most of the time sitting in the car running the battery down or wasting gas trying to get this thing to connect. It takes forever to run. It doesn't seamlessly switch from OBD2 codes to BMW codes. The interface is confusing but you can figure it out- screen space is wasted on how much you saved and a scary warning that doesn't mean anything.

    rae jepsen Although I initially gave a positive feedback, unfortunately I could not get the money back for the subscription. Paypal informed me that the seller did not agree, therefor I understand that the 30 day money back guarantee is not true with them, so please be aware of this when you purchase Carly. I now have a useless subscription for 1 year. The adapter is good, the software is also good (for the little usage I did for testing the app), however I had to cancel the subscription and ask for the refund since the coding currently does not support iDrive for BMW X4 (Feb 2020). Awaiting for the refund. I have decided to keep the adapter because I understand that the coding will be available sometime soon during this year, at that time I will buy back the subscription again.

    bmw I've been using this for years. Lately I can't connect to my gen 2 adapter with my s20. Ill be reaching out to technical support soon.

  4. guest-avatar

    simon The app does not work fully anymore! My bmw is a 2016 with I drive version id4 and your app does not support this!!! The older versions did but they won't work anymore, you need to give support to the older versions of I drive, or give a refund due to lack of support.

    adapter They are apsolutely wonderful! Perfect support.. Good adapter quality and good app also! We just need from you to allow us to scan for individual modules as searching for full modules its taking time and sometimes is not in our interes! Thanks

    chaikin Update. I've been in touch numerous times, my whole ecu is scrambled from doing a few bits of coding. Dash board is lit up like a Christmas tree. Garage is looking into it but they're confused too, looks like I'll need full hardware replacement Do not buy!

    universal adapter Every single update is with fancier design but worse and more complicated performance. I prefer simple design with good and stable performance rather than cool looking design.

    rae jepsen hamburg Have had Carly for a couple of years now and lately it has stopped fixing issues. Whenever I go to clear issues it doesn't seem to clear them. I tried emailing Carly but they never got back to me. Not happy....

    le Overall this is a decent app and tool for performing vehicle diagnostics. However for what it does, plus the fact that you're requiring a subscription, the price is a SCAM. Your users pay a lot of money for your products and you don't even offer a fully unlocked version of the app after paying $80. You would sell a lot more of your products and have better ratings if you provided a fully unlocked version for the price. I have a better business model for you. Please contact me.

    obd Requires subscription. Bought the Pro version but still can't upgrade to the latest. Good for Mechanic but for individuals subscription is expensive. Have GPA number but won't accept it. Thanks for responding. While I understand your point, I believe the subscription amount is too highe if you do not use often. I don't mind paying $30 annually even if I don't use it often, but $82 is a bit much. Discount for those who have GPA.3380-6038-....that are not working?? Just a thought. Added STAR

    Great app So far so good Everything coded as expected. Some folks having an annoying problem with original cars from factory having AC setting automatically coming on, every time they get in the car the AC automatically comes on even when it's freezing cold & have to physically turn off everytime. Frustrating & annoying- I contacted Carly to see if they had this feature to turn it off, the advisor said no. But I used the fob & started coding & came to find out they have it! Problem solved!

    Had huge problems with the Gen.2 Carly adapter on the new version. Don't know if it was software or hardware related but after talking with tech support they sent me a new Universal adapter. At first it had the same problems but after hours of trying it finally seems to work correctly so I can again recommend this app. Good customer support! Loses two stars because it's very slow and some data is not available. Like monitoring each wheel speed sensor. Also can't select individual modules to scan. Or you can in the old design but then the text is all messed up. Update: Live data works again after latest update.

  13. guest-avatar

    It doesnt work. Wont connect. Delete all my bluetooth devices. Really? What junk. These Youtubers pushing this thing get thumbs down and unsubscribed.

  14. guest-avatar

    I used to enjoy using Carly on my car car until you did the update and now it's asking me to pay again when I only paid for it in October last year? Either refund me or get me off the lite version as I've paid for the full version ๐Ÿ˜ก

  15. guest-avatar

    Ever since you changed the app and connection device to the universal one, none of the previous gen obd devices work. I'm not sure why you wanted to change it. But I won't be buying your new device just so you can change it again to make me buy another obd connecter. Used to love this app

  16. guest-avatar

    App is great, helps me stay on top of maintenance for my e90. Got rid of all the lights on my dash

  17. guest-avatar

    The price is nothing. If you reset one malfunction code, you have paid your subscription for years.

    Fredrick Potthast


    Cash cow app. I bought the app years ago, and it wasn't cheap. Then, they turned into a subscription app. After a fuss and a bunch of nonsense, they honoured the app for previous purchasers. Then, they change it so you MUST use their overpriced adapters. There are better apps for a fraction of the cost. DO NOT BUY THIS APP.

  19. guest-avatar

    Just repurchased full all vehicle version. Wouldn't clear codes on original 1st year car. Tried to connect to my 2nd vehicle kept crashing on 3rd stage/vehicle insights. Followed carly instructions to reinstall app and Bluetooth connections now it will not connect at all however I try to. the all vehicle adapter which is gen 2 and older vehicle plug in does not cover vag models. Have to buy several adapters to cover all vehicles.. very expensive to other packages available from other companies

  20. guest-avatar

    Brilliant app and user friendly interface, all the features work as they should on my android device. After sales support is excellent. No regrets I purchased the app and made my choice towards Carly a few years ago. The app is constantly updating which is also a good thing. So overall a very nice job and keep going.

    just got the new Carly working with Bluetooth connection. easy to connect. but on my f31 320i 2016, there in nothing to change. i have change the welcome screen to Mperformace. now its black. hope with backup will get the original working. diagnostic show 78 errors on the car. i have tried today to backup the setting for the welcome screen. out of success.!!!

  22. guest-avatar

    This app really is so great, I just can't find any bad thing from this app, Without sugar coating this, support team is so awesome, I've got problem with freezed live data for BMW, so I contacted Carly support, the response, not even a day waiting, Julian and Robert are so helpful and so Profesional,, The full version app, is so great, With engine diagnostic option, we easily can delete warning code light anytime, and cars coding system way more advance then other apps, Rainer, New Zealand

  23. guest-avatar

    Easy to connect, that's a plus. When I'm trying to code, I have one window on top of the other, because of that can't read and code anything. That's very disappointing considering that I had payed for the obd connector and I'm running the the latest version of the payed app.

    Ashley Williams


    Been using this excellent software on my 330d for years and it literally does everything I need any diagnostic software to do, plus when I had a problem with my adapter, they mailed me a brand new one, without any hassle at all, amazing company with 1st class customer service.

    There are always issue with this APP , it stops working and again I have to delete the APP only to reinstall. Customer Service solution each time is to delete and reinstall, .How about you fix the APP, iits greatwhen it works..

  26. guest-avatar

    Universal adapter is not so useful! Readouts are not working, only engine chech, that's it! Sorry but waste of money buying it. And i don't like new interface, no easy for use. In addition Carly for bmw is very good and much easier for use.

  27. guest-avatar

    The app used to be good years ago. Now, is buggy and laggy. I get all kind of errors when trying to code some cars. F10, cannot backup actual coding data. F20, can not read FEM (unknown software). Please...make it work as it used to.

    Despa Marian-Iulian


    I have a full subscription and from what I see I can't delete the fault codes from a BMW F30 systems. Not even a single one. As an example a MAF error that I tried to delete with Carly without result I deleted with Delphi DS 150e In a second. Maybe you can update this app to work as it's normal.

  29. guest-avatar

    It was working great until the upgrade. You guys made me buy an expensive USB adapter for my E83. Why is it that the cable adapter is no longer an option in the app for connecting to my car?

  30. guest-avatar

    Almost perfect! Just need some additional things for E models, which I have told developers about. I've been a pro user for year highly recommended it.

  31. guest-avatar

    It is a proper rubbish, they make you to upgrade but is very, very limited on what you can do. The only thing I could do with was to delete the error for my registration plate number... Would not recommend.

  32. guest-avatar

    Well, it's NOT working. I have a 1997 BMW E36, and the only thing this app do is NOT connect the phone with the car. It NOTsays something it is NOT running a car health inspection, etc All apps is locked ...absolutely fail

  33. guest-avatar

    Generally quite satisfied. Still fairly new with the product I've only used it about five times and there still lots to figure out. Documentation could certainly be better and would ease this learning curve.

  34. guest-avatar

    I would say it is not worth paying $ 65 per year when other applications offer the same for a single full time payment. The application also has its complications, I would recommend bimmercode and other similar that you make just one payment for life.

  35. guest-avatar

    bought the OBD carly bluetooth, conected to the car and started this app, they dont get conected even you have paid 59 euro for it and still you need pay for the upgraded version of the app. to use it. waste of money.

  38. guest-avatar

    The app and adapter never let me down. I like old BMW's, and own a older one. Seems like the developer is focused on newer models. Not too many options for old models, so if you have one INPA is better

  39. guest-avatar

    Can't be compared with the professional software. This is only for few coding and errors.

    You want 60 euros per annum, you want 60 euros per adapter, and you show nothing for my own car ! You don't even have the option for a free trial of 6 f**ing hours, to get the proof I'm able to monitor what i want.. So i call this a SCAM. You get a 2nd star only because you're promising something that it might even work, while the missing 3 stars till a supposedly happy end is exactly quantifying my risk that for 120 euros i won't get what i need and you'll most probably not refund anything..

  52. guest-avatar

    I have only used the newest version of the app so I do not know how it compares to the original version. That being said, it is a very easy app to use and navigate. Please not that you cannot do anything without the Carly adapter and that the pro version of the app is subscription based, with an annual fee of close to $80CAD. I've only had one slight technical issue with the app, but the Carly customer service team (specifically Robert) was very quick to respond and help me resolve my issue.

    Carly has gotten me out of trouble countless times. It's extremely simple to use and you can spend hours playing with all the different coding options! Amazing to be honest. It's clear the Carly Team really value customer loyalty. I really respect the help I have been given and it has solidified me as a life long customer. Thanks!

  59. guest-avatar

    Still persistent problems and horrible customer service

  60. guest-avatar

    This has arguably been the worse company to deal after app failed to work. I purchased the app on Feb 2016 via google play and now with their new version the app worked one time and now does not work. I don't use the app often as my car is immaculate. Older customers are entitled to the new app per their statement and I cannot for the life of me all of a sudden have the app work on the same tablet. I have emailed them many times and they expect me to have my original email from goole play store back in 2015 which I do not have but have email form them which states I registered the app to update the new password. I also sent them screen print from my google play store. I pent $58.99 and now I have nothing now and they are incompetent to even look up my info. based on the emails I have exchanged. BMW owners, please stay away from this company and bimmer-tool will do a lot of the same (exclude coding) includng free diesel regernation, batter registration for $14.99 total. This is a scumbag european company who are beyond incompetent and making their money on deception after seling the product to original customes who floated them..

  61. guest-avatar

    So this app needs a subscription to unlock all the features. Paid for the year so you already got my money. I was using a USB cable to read error codes and do coding, but this new update looks like it broke that. Needed to check something last night, but it gets stuck looking for a Bluetooth device when connecting. I guess this update is to get people to spend more money. So even though I've paid, I can't really use the app anymore.

  62. guest-avatar

    Generally works OK. Yes, need to buy the adapter and the full version, but that compares favorably to one shop visit. Support is really poor -- consists of automated responses based on best matches to your question. Really poor, but I guess better than some very amateurish apps. Interface is all brand new... again... and now has more pointless fluff. not an improvement! Lets you log live data but there's no way to view the log -- it's encrypted. I guess the "save log" feature is either there for future use or just to make you mad. Shows error codes in a non-standard format, so makes it hard to google for answers. All that said, it's a cost effective way to get clues as to the source of the problem, much more convenient than a laptop/cable, and I get the impression they're growing, so one can hope they'll eventually actually improve the product vs just trying to grab market by adding compatibility with other brands?

  63. guest-avatar

    Horrible lately. This app used to be very useful: it was fast to connect, fast to diagnose, read live params and the interface was nice and large, easy to operate while in a vehicle. Now it's completely the opposite. The UI is clunky, cramped up and inconsistent (some screens are portrait, some landscape - why?? It's just horrible), the connection is very slow and drops 90% of times and, worst of all, if I clear error codes, they don't get cleared! I paid 60 euros for this???

  64. guest-avatar

    Very intermittent to connect so I need to set aside about 3 hours to connect. Sometimes connect after 3 or 4 tries other times will not connect after 30-35 tries. Does not always take a code. Recent updates did not help. I am updating from 1 to 4 stars. It seems my connection issuesare no longer and it is now connecting reliably. I have always liked the interface and now have 0 issues (fingers crossed). Support has tried to help on several occasions and they were prompt and courteous.

  65. guest-avatar

    I've purchased this app (Pro for BMW) and device (Gen 2) 2017 and besides the rare connection issues, it worked great. Since I paid for Pro I could change settings and run diagnostics. Since the recent updates, it is a pain to connect even with the online help (1 1/2 hours). And then once it connected shock and horror to find out you now have to pay a yearly subscription just to run diagnostics! Why?! To me this app and device is no longer worth it. Will be looking for another app and device :-(

  66. guest-avatar

    Your new update is just HORRID. I had been using a landscape view layout for my car and your new app switches back and forth between vertical and horizontal layouts forcing me to dismount the phone from my holder to hold it. Too many new buttons and screens to get between functionality simply to "be flashy". This new version of the app is much less usable than previously. Put it back, it was easier to use, navigate and view up until this new layout. I'm extremely unlikely to continue my subscription after this.

  67. guest-avatar

    I bought the adaptor first, but then found out I had to purchase the paid app as well, then found out it's not a one off payment but a yearly subscription. I am part of an M5 group and several people have this and recommended it, but when they bought theirs it was a one off fee for life, which is better for the likes of me. I am a private user and will use it once in a while, but a yearly charge makes this a very expensive bit of kit, especially when you need to buy theor adaptor that is also expensive. For me there are much cheaper options, I will buy a cheap adaptor and use bimmer code instead, such a shame.

  68. guest-avatar

    was amazing when it was first released. now just another unusable heavy pointless sales pitch. icing on the cake! did the update and they have really locked down the ability to use anything other then their branded dongles. i purchased this app when one could use the app with 3rd party or existing obd interfaces. i was reluctantly gradfathered into the new version, and now they're unsupporting me out to grass. where is the loyalty to a customer that was invested $90 bucks in the app store?

    It works, but there is better programs to buy. Got this to code stuff on my e91. After coding sidemarkers (USA) i got error codes everywhere. Left headlight stopped working. Had to take it to a dealership to get it fixed. After installing new breaks i had big problems with reseting the service light and ended up doing it The normal way, same with oil change. Wouldnt recommend this to be fair because of the price

    The very first day I started to use the app I was very disappointed to learn that I cannot use it as much as I expected (was told) and in order to use all features of the app I had to pay additional fee of $ 82.99/year. It's a pitty that I was not fully informed about it before I purchased the adaptor. I treid to read as much as possible about the device at the website of the seller/manufacturer and I didn't see any information about additional fees. I felt very tricked, upset and dissapointed

    The continuous flow of updates (and move to 'all vehicles') are of no real value to long term customers whose benefits are lifetime subscription for their original vehicle only. Now the app is becoming bloated and confused. It was a relatively expensive investment years ago and has served it purpose but the developers have lost their way. A real shame. The 'all vehicles' latest updateable adapter is not worth investing in unless you are prepared to pay subscriptions.

    Horrible customer service. I purchased the paid version as well as the universal adapter. All worked well for 2 months until the adapter randomly no longer connects or has power. I have since submitted 4 tickets through the Zen desk asking for just a new adapter with absolutely no response. Stay away. UPDATE!!!!! 1-22-2020 I finally received a replacement and guess what? It does not work as well, I verified this with 9 different BMWs and it smells burnt. Can I please get an adapter that works?

    Well, it's NOT working. I have a 2006 Seat Ibiza, and the only thing this app do is connect the phone with the device. It says it is running a car health inspection, i let it run for about 30-35 minutes, was at 100% since 5mins, but was not able to complete the scan. I have ran it twice, both times failed to finish the inspection. For anything else, it asks for premium package witch is extra ๐Ÿ’ฐ

    Works pretty well, but the interface is horrible and the sequence of menus doesn't make sense. Pricing is annual, which is insane given that you have to buy the adapter. On the main menu, it suggests the likelihood of a fault code, but you can tell that it isn't informed by anything real. It's probably just the time since you last scanned the car.

    Firstly, I have seen so many reviews on YouTube sponsored by Carly saying that it's a one time subscription for lifetime. But, after I bought it, it turned out to be a yearly subscription which means it's a fraud. Secondly, the adapter rejects pairing at all. I just paid money for nothing. Either I get the pairing issue solved and the subscription for lifetime as advertised by many on YouTube, or fully refund me.

    I purchased the Carly Gen II some years ago and paid for the pro app, plus paying to unlock various features in the app. I was told this was a lifetime purchase with free app updates. Now I'm told my "lifetime" purchase has become an (expensive) annual subscription. This is fraud. People who purchased with the understanding they had bought a lifetime product should continue to receive free app updates. People buying _since_ the transition to annual subscription should pay the annual rate.

    The user interface is poor and both difficult /confusing to navigate. You will be continually switched between landscape and portrait, over which you will have no control and will have to reorient your phone. The app offers a very restricted set of data PIDs for VAG and will not talk standard OBD when I tested with another non-VAG vehicle. Support is poor. Response is quick but glib and unhelpful. Judging by the ticket numbers, these guys are getting many tickets per day. Look elsewhere.

    each time I read errors, it throw me different number of readed ECU's.. sometimes 22, sometimes 16 and so.. this is causing that I can see active steering error, and on second read no errors. and please remove that saved money banner on top, it is wasting screen space so much. rather put there more options, like DPF, transmission etc.. I ended with using only right button menu, but there are not that fancy features + make bigger coding text font, it is small now

    If you want to waste monney this is the product for you, dispite the fact that you pay for the scanner you Also have to buy a subscription for the "full" version (this in my opinion ridiculous). With all this being Said the app just doesn't work it constantly has to reconnect to the scanner. I've sat in my car for a good 2 hours waiting for the scan to "Finnish" and well it never did. To conclude all of this, its apsolute shite

    I bought into this app years ago, before it was even called carly (BMWhat, i believe) every update it gets worse and more polluted with garbage and worthless animations. went to use it this weekend and now my USB cable and Branded Bluetooth adapter are obsolete? well, i needed this weekend to do the brakes on parents Audi, so i broke down and ordered the new adapter on amazon because their website said it would do the brake reset. got into the audi side of the updated app and our B8.5 s4 was not compatible. dongle is being returned, im done with this company.

  81. guest-avatar

    I've been a Carly BMW user for a few years now and have been very satisfied with the app's functions. Connectivity used to be very slow until this last update. Now the connection with the bluetooth dongle is a bit faster. I'm not a fan of the new UI but maybe that just because I was so used to the older one. All in all worth the purchase. They also have a Carly Toyota/Lexus now so I've been playing around with that since I have a couple Toyota's and a Lexus.

    My scanner broke and they gave me a new one free of charge.

    Hoping developer will repair broken app. Edit 12/6/19, still no option to pick the cable connection. Still can't use this app that I paid for. I'll update this review when it is fixed. Edit 12/11/19 Cable connection works again!

    Won't verify full version which doesnt expire until September 2020. Had to not only buy the adapter but also bought the stupid app subscription / premium. "To validated your purchase of Carly for BMW Pro we require the GPA number from the original receipt." App is slow to load, slow to connect, & fails to validate that you have the paid version so you cant use it to do anything. I got a full refund so 2/5.

    I just received the adapter and connected it to an 04 BMW e46. I had some problems getting Live Data to work so contacted support and was told Live Data does not work on my model and to use OBD Functions and then OBD Parameters instead. I did this and it worked but you first have to select what parameters you want to read. Up to 6 can be displayed. Then you have to know what it all means and I do not, except for rpm, water temp, etc., the easy stuff. I only have the basic version and still deciding if I want to pay the added money for the full version. Support has been very good except for the apparent time difference which is okay as I'm sure they do not have 24 hr support. Below is the message they sent about Live Data. Maybe this will help you also. We currently support approximately 100 different motor variants for the manufacturer-specific parameter function. For all these engines we offer between 50 and 500 different parameters. Almost all of these engines require a different way to read the parameters. It may be sufficient that only two engines differ from each other during the production month and can already be read in a completely different way. The app reads the values directly from the control units. If these are incorrect, the control unit does not display these parameters correctly or a sensor is defective. As an alternative to the manufacturer- and engine-specific parameters, we offer the so-called OBD parameter function for almost all models, which we use to read out the standard OBD parameters. This is less complex and similar for a large number of different vehicles. Here we can display the most important parameters. The function can be found under OBD Functions -> OBD Parameters.

    New interface is dreadful, constantly. Having to reconnect to the dam car. Keep telling me it works perfectly while car is running. I cannot connect as per my email to you no matter the state of the car, I have running or not. Your update killed the app. I have cancelled found free app connects perfectly ever time

    Good app. Had a couple of issues: 1: it (unknowingly) turned off my head lamp wash and subsequently failed the MOT. When coding it on again (even though it showed it was already on) it doesn't make a difference if I set head lamp wash to every 3 or 5 windscreen washes, it does it only once at the start.. then not at all. :/ 2:Indicators set on as day running lights doesn't work. Fault reading and clearing works well.

    Very good app with intuitive menus and messages; Outstanding user support and logistics: as my Gen 2 adapter very often had issues connecting to my car, they have offered me the new Universal adapter for free, which has been delivered in a matter of days and it is indeed extremely easy to use and connect and no issues connecting to my car since then.

    The Carley APP works very well. I suspect that most of the negative ratings are from people that do not understand how complicated BMW diagnostics and coding can be. Carly cuts through those complications and makes things much simpler. I have been using it for 3 or 4 years and not had any of the technical problems describer in the negative ratings. As for cost, if you have ever taken you car to a garage and paid thier prices you would have to agree that Carley is a bargain.

    I feel like the app is getting unnecessarily bad reviews so here is how I feel. I bought the pro version back in February 2018 and the 2nd gen Bluetooth adapter to go with it. The app was overhauled at one point and the old pro users got the new version fully unlocked. For me (and my bmw e90) this has worked flawlessly, whether that be diagnostics, coding, battery reg and so on. While the new updates have made it harder to navigate the app still works every time so giving it 1 star seems harsh.

    Good app and superb support!

    Able to do some stuff... but the was GUI looks and what is showing is just terible or lets say user friendly for complete amateurs. There is no way to see nicely all units and open them to read status, serial, version, errors, adapration, programing etc. So if you ever used any car diagnostics before Carly will look more like some web site that app. Wish I could use carly hardware with some other app. Paid so much money for only one year license to look at children looking app๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž

    Good app but forces you to use their expensive yet lousy adapter. Mine worked fine for a few months, then was difficult to connect to, and now won't stay connected at all, leaving me with the choice of repurchasing an overly expensive BT adapter or abandoning the app I paid for.

    I have used Carly for BMW for many years - from about 2012 - and on to the New Version. Along the way, I had a few issues which the software team remedied. As car technology progresses, the software team have also had to progress. My Pixel 2 is now operating on Android 10, and earlier issues have disappeared. I really like the revised design and functionality.

  95. guest-avatar

    Alot of people are not liking the app or having trouble connecting. You need basic i.t skills. Also it states on the google app that there is a yearly subscription to use the app. So many people are not reading before they download the app are are giving the company a bad name. I have been using carly for many years now and i can say it really good and user friendly. Customer service is good. Also the interface has changed and many people not liking it please contact them first

    From bad to better, i had problems with my USB cable, got the universal adapter for free (thanks for that) now everything is back to normal. The app works fine, the connection is smooth, customer service is great. To be honest, I wasn't expected to happen that fast.

  97. guest-avatar

    Well after a bit of back and forth with emails and shock of horror an update cable connection is now working. They are sending me a free adapter too which is a bonus. I did also report the app to Google and everything is good now. Customer service is good when they dont just send an automated email back. Happy customer now ๐Ÿ˜

    Do not get this app it is $60 a year and you have to buy their adapter. If you have your own adapter it will not work. If I could do negative stars I would.

  99. guest-avatar

    It would just sit in the connecting screen and never actually connect to the car. I was willing to buy it if it turned out, but was never able to actually test it because the trial counts the time it takes to read the ECU. Very disappointed
