  • The best

    By godfathernice
    Thank you for your app
  • If you have a BMW you need this ASAP

    By chris cardet

  • Rip off

    By your monna
    I upgraded to the full version for $59. And most of the functions are not supported.
  • Unreliable, difficult to use

    By Speedracerindy
    I’m done with this product. Wish I hadn’t wasted my money on the app and the adapter. Getting the app to connect with the adapter (that I purchased from Carley) is nearly impossible. And when it does connect, it will conveniently lose the connection to the adapter just before you are ready to upload adaptations. As a last ditch effort to recover my investment I updated the app and now it won’t recognize my original purchase and wants me to pay another $60 to use it. After several years of use with very spotty results, I won’t be paying any more money. It’s a great idea, but appears to be poorly executed. 5 minutes with Carista’s adapter and app were significantly more productive.
  • Rethink this purchase

    By Scscottish
    I was an original Carly user back many years ago when it was first called BMW What. I was then a beta tester for Carly then I was a Carly Trainer, offering support and advice to enthusiasts looking to purchase an OBD app for their BMW. 4 years ago I was very excited about ivini and this product. They took user suggestions for product improvement seriously and the single purchase fee was reasonable. By the way, I still get commissions on sales of this product so you can be assured that when I offer this review it is from a purely professional perspective and meant as impartial to the thousands of enthusiasts who ask me for advice via the Bimmer forums under my pseudonym “BMW-North”. Today, this product is simply not worth it. There are other products that can perform the same or better functions (for a BMW anyway) that are a single purchase fee and better value. The decision to move to a subscription fee was nothing more than greed. Shame, as it will ultimately see the demise of the progress and acceptance by purists that was occurring. Worse though is the loss of trust by many of the early users, beta testers, and Carly Trainers like myself. We spent countless hours providing free feedback on product development and improvements only to see greed take over the business development aspect. If I were buying a product today to support a Bimmer as an owner, Carly would be bottom of the list due to its subscription basis and relative high cost for basic functions. Other apps are actually better at a lower cost BimmerCode, ISTA, INPA etc. Further, for an automotive professional, Carly simply does not have the capabilities that are demanded and offered in BMW factory tools or others such as Snap-On. It is worth $59, but once, not annually. Apple is as much to blame here as Ivini, it was they who recommended moving to subscription basis as it generates added revenue for them and the authors in a win-win scenario. Unfortunately there has to be a loser in a win-win and that is the prospective purchaser of this app. Look in the Bimmer forums for tools that surpass Carly at a fraction of the cost. Happy motoring. P.s if you purchased the full version prior to March 19, 2018 and ever get charged a fee, look in the future for a website where details will be correlated. The search term will be “BMW Carly Subscription Rip-off”
  • Terrible yearly fee

    By I._@ love this thing here/7\
    I bought the Carly adapter and unlocked some of the features through the app with the previous version and now I can no longer use either the old app or my adapter to code my car. I don’t use the app enough to make the $60 yearly fee reasonable enough.
  • Excellent Support

    By wyshyvanuk
    Quick, accurate, support from Robert while finding my way through some coding questions about the BMW Z4M. He resolved some issues concerning the Brake Force Display capabilities of the software, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Thanks, again, Robert!!!!
  • Disabled old version that I paid full price for.

    By Anonymous01234567899876543210
    This company has disabled the old version of the app where I had full access despite me paying full price for a perpetual license. Now you have to pay the same amount every year to be able to do the same things that I could in the old version for a one time price. Do not support this greedy behavior. Do not buy.
  • Very poor and misleading

    By lkcjjckl
    I purchased the full version of the Carly app after testing with the free version as they suggested . I changed the battery In my 06 series 5 Bmw from a 110 Ah lead acid to a 92Ah agm battery the change was supposed to be easy according to Carly. However when I tried to register the new battery Carly crashed . I tried a couple of times and it did the same thing . I contacted Carly and they told me they new of the issue crashing yet they still sold me the app with no mention anywhere of the issue on the free version . They said they have an update for the problem . I don’t know how a lot of comments on here say their tech support is amazing , it’s not . I can’t get a date from them for the update even though I’ve tried a couple of times I just get the same generic response all the time . I have asked for a refund as they are promoting an app for a considerable price that they know does not function as described . Very disappointed in the app, tech support and generally everything with Carly . How can you charge someone almost $60 for an app and then have to buy the adaptor for a further $80 and you know your product doesn’t work ? Carly you should be ashamed of yourself and apple for allowing an expensive app that doesn’t do what it should be sold .
  • My idrive keeps resetting after coding

    By AntonyKwok
    After watching a lot of reviews for this app for over a year, I decided to give it a shot. After purchasing this app, I was so exited to custom coding my own 2013 bmw F30. However, it said I was successfully coded everything, my CIC keeps resetting such as mirror, cic drive setting, and seat positions. Moreover, I just replaced a new OEM 92Ah battery instead of the old 90Ah battery, I was trying to code it following a video from Kies Motorsport. When I was coding it, it just suddenly shut off from the app. I just unplugged it, forget my phone network setting, turn off Bluetooth, and shut off my car waiting more than 2 minutes. Redo the whole process again, after setting a new battery of 90Ah, I enter “register”, it was failure. Honestly, I put a lot of hope when I purchased this adapter, and upgraded it to have a full function, but now I don’t see anything worth the money, and time I spent on. Very unreliable in my opinion. I wish one day it could be better. Thank you!
