Can you active coming home / leaving home without having automatic lights.
I had it on my old b6 Passat that the lights came on every time the car was locked and unlocked no matter the time of day.
With my Leon, that is part of the `convenience' pack.

According to Carista's FB posting - it might be an option but not sure if it already needs to be part of the above pack.

I don't have the convenience pack so don't have auto lights on mine.

Coming home lights don't work (as expected due to not having auto lights, even if I leave the light switch in "on"), but leaving home lights work if the light switch is on and you flash the high beam before you open the door - then the lights stay on for 30 seconds.

Not coded with Carista, this was already working in my car when I got it.

Nah I can't get it to work. Probably me.
I've done rear parking screen which was the main thing.

I've finally managed to change the main screen to carbon effect.
I've somehow made the graphics and logos bigger?
Tbf this is better for my 50 year old eyes!
Also changed the throttle settings but only driven once.
My daughter leaves home tomorrow, got to take her to Salford uni, see what it drives like then.

Good stuff, you will have selected the skin45 size(can't remember the exact figure 🤔), the normal size should be
SEAT_STD_SKIN_SPORT_80_S

Just got my Carista, had a little play, enabled needle sweep and also mirror dip in reverse.

I have two questions.

One the auto start stop disable, there is a few options, with different voltages can anyone confirm with one I need to select for a 184 FR ?


Sorry if this has been covered before but how do you pair the dongle with Vag DPF:? in Vag DPF the app wants to search for a Bluetooth device but its as if the Catista is hidden or not in a pairing mode?

Any advice welcome .

Not sure if I’m a rare case but by doing a few changes that are common using Carista I have lost menu options in settings and also no longer have sat nav on the screen on the display in front of the steering wheel. Having to get it reset and fixed by East Yorkshire retrofits and whilst I’m there update the mib2 to the more modern tile setup

What changes did you apply which required a 3rd party to rectify.

Needle sweep, mirror single press, reverse display and carbon drivers display. I did try a couple of infotainment skins but went back to the original. I also turned off the compass direction not sure when I lost the nav display or parking settings though so can't pinpoint what happened and when

Have you got it sorted? maybe it was the skins, did you contact Carista support.

Not contacted support wasn't sure what to do really it's not a major issue right now. The update and some other bits I'm assured by Kieran will fix it. Guess I should contact Carista though so others don't have the same issues

Never got round to trying as my beta version expired
Might need to re activate it and give it a try
Ah ok I can turn on coming home lights but they're not automatic since I don't have automatic headlights gotta do it manually but I've still not managed to figure out leaving home lights yet. Let me know how you get on please
