    Default Carly Coding OBD device...

    Hi,
    I found this youtube clip on coding Minis and really fancied a few of the mods...
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9woJLUrL7I

    Does anyone know if the Carly Code device is good and would help in achieving those mods?

    Mine is F54 2017, Cooper S Clubman.

    Also... What difference is the Carly Lite and Carly Pro - apart from price - for Android?

    Thanks in advance.

    Carly light won’t allow you to code and you will also need to purchase a Carly OBD. adapter as well as the app

    Also what Idrive system do you have? The one shown in the video or the newest version as some of the coding in the video isn’t available for the latest version

    There does seem to be a difference between the Clubman and Hatch when it comes to certain functions.

    I've used the Carly Pro, for example, to turn off the Active Sound Design (sound generator) in both my own F56 and in my wife's F54. In both cars the attempt was successful. I've also used it to activate the tyre temperature display but I've only had success on my F56. According to the Carly Pro the function has been activated in my wife's F54 but there's been no change to the in-car display.

    Aside from that though the Carly Pro has been handy for changing things like the temperature of the heated seats.

    I'd recommend holding off until the next available MINI run if you can and then you can have a nosey at the Carly (if those of us with one remember to bring it) before buying it.

    EDIT:

    Also, as William's mentioned above, the Carly Pro isn't fully up to date with the latest MINI version so if your car has been updated recently by MINI then you may not be able to access everything.

    Thanks for the response...
    If by "iDrive" you mean the control interface for the central control screen... then I have the panel beside the parking brake switch with the touch sensitive knob, (no tittering) and the menu button with 4 other buttons around it... plus a back button & option button behind.

    Pardon my ignorance...

    What functions does the Carly Lite have then, please?
    Just the warning code facility?

    I mean the actual programme it’s self shown on the centre screen.. Does it match that in the video or is it the new version.

    Not a great deal. Can’t fully remember what but next to nothing

    No, my screen looks different to the one in the video.
