I concur with all of this.I’ve used Carista and Blue Driver. I used Carista to change some presets. So far I’ve set the remote to roll all windows down and open sun roof when unlocking. I have real time gauges with Blue driver. Carista costs $$$$$ to use while blue driver is free.
I started with Blue driver. It’s a good tool.
Unfortunately you do need the paid subscription for TPMS. It comes with one month free and then there are options to do a year or shorter durations.Thanks. It looks like the Carista device is about $30 and Bluedriver is $100 but the Carista app requires a monthly subscription to get “extra” features. Do you need the paid app for tpms?
I just picked up Carista and was able to get rid of my passenger seat belt chime...which drives me crazy when the size of my dog tells my LC there’s a person there.The base code reading/clearing functions on carista are free, and you used to be able to buy a temporary “pro” week on carista for $9. Not sure whether that’s still the case. Before I had a working techstream system I’d purchase that any time I needed to program TPMS, which was not often. Important to note is that the base free carista app will still allow you to read codes on some modules other than the engine. I had a random SRS light come on on a trip due to my second row removal and was able to read and clear it with the free app and their interface.
For code/data reading I’ve since moved on to OBdFusion, as their dashboard system is awesome for watching data when driving. Haven’t played with it on modules other than ecu though.
A few years back I bought a kiwi OBD module and it has been great, but those are far from the cheapest at this point. In that price range I’d be checking bluedriver out.
Super simple. Takes longer for the app and reader to boot up. Only shortfall is that while It can program new sensors it cannot scan/read TPMS ID numbers once they are installed. Make sure to write down the sensors Numbers before installing.How difficult is Carista to program new TPMS? Looking at a second set of tires/rims and this would be handy.
