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
From what I've read, the "leaving home" lights can be manually set (this is for when you're leaving the car (car=home)).

But without automatic headlights, the coming home lights won't work (when you're returning to home, ie, going back to the car).

That's how mine currently work in my Leon FR without auto lights. But I've not tried coding it any differently as don't have Carista or anything yet.

Hi
Is there any negative to turning off auto stop/start with the Carista app? Only as I've read it changes the voltage .

Has anybody managed to disable the exhaust valve through Carista? Having trouble where it just throws out an error saying it lost connection half way through applying the changes.

I read that maybe it is not possible to do on a facelift model. Can anybody confirm?

No seats have an exhaust valve. Its all faked through a little speaker called a Sound Actuator so you're not disabling anything.

I have activated the off road menu using Carista app but not seen the sports info on there as yet. But not looked through the green menu

Would you be able to tell me how you managed to do it? Couldnt see any option for it in the actual carista app when connect to the car. Thanks

Open the app
Customise
Display - instruments and dials
Then it’s the last 3 options on the list. You have to do one after the other.
then reset the unit by holding the power button until it comes back on and then it’s in the vehicle menu

Hey folks,

Is the app worth it? Can the ownership/subscription run out and the changes stay, eg if i did needle sweep and then got rid or the app will it go back to not having it.

Car is 2016 FR ST 2.0 150hp. Has cruise, start stop, carplay etc, don't want to risk compromising those things also.

The dongle is well worth it because it works with other apps as well. I have mine talking to VAG DPF and InCarDoc Pro. With the Carista app, you usually get 30 days free to make any changes. The changes will remain as they are made on the car and not linked to your subscription.

I've always found it very good value for money.

Is it a case of purchasing the adaptor (30 euro) and then having to subscribe for 1,3,12 months for additional costs? or is the 30 euro for the adaptor alone and it comes free with the subscription?

You are just buying the adaptor but I'm pretty sure you get 30 days free Carista App with it. Enough time to have a play before you have to pay a subscription. Even then, you can just pay for a month, which is £10.

Once in beta can you skip the 'send feedback' part before customising options appear?
Want to change something but don't want to send feedback everytime
