Battery Registration with Carly (BMW Only)

If you want to install a new battery yourself, this battery also needs to be registered in the control unit of the car, so the vehicle systems are aware of the change. With the Carly app, you can register any battery and battery type that is supported for a BMW car. This saves you a trip to the dealer or mechanics! Keep in mind you have to read out the battery first to see if it is supported. To check if this feature or any others is supported for your BMW model, go here.

Watch the video below to see how this process works!

What is supported depends on the build year and the built-in hardware and software of your individual car. Connect to your car with the Carly adapter and then use the Carly app to check what works for yours. We are always improving the Carly solution, therefore the design of the app might have changed and functionalities may have been added since the video was filmed.
