If you have a BMW, Audi, Volkswagen, Seat, Skoda, or Mini you can optimally code your car to fit your needs with Carly. What is coding? In modern vehicles, there are functions that the manufacturer has not activated. Changing these settings is called coding.

„That manufacturers lock features that obviously are already there, is just ridiculous.“

How it works

Understand coding

A vehicle suitable for coding requires an OBD2 port to access the built-in ECUs. The coding changes pre-programmed options and these options depend on the type and number of electronic features already built in.

Most Common Questions

How is Carly different from other coding software solutions and coding tools?
Arrow down/
Until very recently it required a complex coding tool set — an OBD to ethernet/USB adapter, a laptop/computer, and coding software — if you wanted to code a car. With the Carly Universal Adapter and the Carly app you can now code your car easily through your smartphone.
Before Carly you needed to buy different coding tools or dedicated software for individual car brands. But now with Carly, you can code BMW, Audi, Skoda, VW, Seat, Mini, Toyota (in beta), and Lexus (in beta) with one Carly app and one wireless Carly Universal Adapter, which works for almost all car brands in the world with an OBD2 port.
How do I know which coding options will work for my car? Is there a car coding list?
Arrow down/
The coding function is available for BMW, Mini, VW, Audi, Skoda, Seat, Toyota, and Lexus. The coding options vary based on the car model, hardware, and software in the individual car. You can check here, which coding options could be supported for your car brand. Please connect your car with the adapter to the Carly app to see what exactly is possible for your individual car.
Can I break my car, or could my warranty expire after using Carly?
Arrow down/
The Carly solution is safe to use and should not break your car or affect the warranty if you use it correctly and in line with our recommendations. Just like with every other car tool. Carly makes a backup every time you code, and you can quickly return to the original settings if you want. Also, Carly is the only coding solution worldwide that has a proactive ECU check installed. We check before coding whether your controller has a “clean” firmware. What you need to be careful about is not changing too many options at the same time. And in rare cases, there are controllers with firmware that could potentially cause problems after a coding process. But don’t worry, we will inform you about it in the app.
What do I need to do to get started?
Arrow down/
You just need the Carly Universal Adapter and a mobile phone to download our Carly app. It runs both in Android and iOS and works for almost all car brands in the world. Plug the adapter in the OBD-port, connect to the app, and start with your first diagnosis.
What does coding with Carly cost?
Arrow down/
A workshop charges between $50 and $80 per individual coding function or activation. With Carly you can do all coding yourself for the price of a single coding function. And in addition to coding, Carly offers you even more — diagnose your car and use other features that help you maintain your car in the best shape. Click here for more information on prices.
