    How does the free trial work? I used it with my device once, what happens if i give the bundle to someone, is she/he gonna get a free trial as well?

    It runs from your Apple ID details so your Apple ID has got a month for free, if the new person (your friend) downloads the app and connects to your carista dongle then he would also get a free month using his own Apple ID details


    Same for android too with the google play account

    I can't seem to make the carbon effect and the different infotainment themes work with carista beta. When I activate these they just don't change anything. I've tried to reach the developer mode as mentioned earlier, but the only thing I seem to activate is "Testmode menue". In this menu the only thing I find is "skin style" in the HMI Debug menu, and even when I press it here it just doesn't do anything. Anybody over here who has an idea what to do?

    Hi @Turb0 I have a 2018 FR and I think I chose option 2 in the skin style menu.Not sure if you have to reset infotainment or not

    The latest beta for the app says it now includes DPF regeneration tools for VAG. I can't find it anywhere though. Anyone know what's included or where the options are?

    Does anyone know if you can enable “phase out” indicators with carista? Do you need specific lights for this to work aswell? I know I can’t enable pace indicators as i think you need led lights for that

    I don’t think so, not seen it on the original or beta app. Someone changed the lights to the page version I think but it only last a few days then half of the indicator stopped functioning

    I just invested in the carista and set the beep option on my cupra 300 but it is a quiet beep where as when I did my wife’s Leon FR it was a loud beep is there any reason for this? Can’t get my head around it

    Hi....
    I changed skin to carbon as follows....
    Developer menu > Service mode > Testmode > HDMI Skin Change > SEAT_STD_SKIN_SPORT_80_S

    The Developer Menu has to be enabled in Carista first.

    The extra ambient light colours are in the Lights section, but you have to have the beta version to access them.

    I made my Mode light red by taking the switch apart and putting red cellophane (from a well known sweet) behind the lens. To remove switch you need to remove air con panel and then the switch just unclips. Then just carefully prise apart the two halves.

    Hope this helps

    Edit: You can change the Instrument Cluster LCD background to Carbon using Carista (Instruments/Display/Dings) but again you need the beta verion

    Has anyone managed to get the coming home and leaving home functions to work via Carista? I’ve changed my lighting dial to one with an auto lights sensor (which works flawlessly) and I really want the leaving home function to work. it’s activated and I can see the option in the infotainment display.

    Any help appreciated.

    Are you using the beta version?

    I have the following set, but they are all in beta version.

    Coming-home lights ENABLED
    Leaving-home lights (req. auto headlights) (step 1 of 2) ENABLED
    Leaving-home lights (req. auto headlights) (step 2 of 2) ENABLED
    Leaving-home lights duration 30 SEC.
    Menu for coming/leaving-home lights duration ENABLED
    Coming-home lights mode AUTOMATIC: WHEN IT'S DARK
    Coming-home lights trigger WHEN DOOR IS OPENED

    Edit: I did this after retro fit of auto lights/wipers

    Thanks. Yes I have the beta and I THINK this is how I have mine set up but I’ll check. does the auto wiper mod mean adding a sensor behind the rear view mirror? Presumably that’s different to what I’ve done where the light sensor comes out of the lighting dial.

    Yes it does. There's a (humidity) sensor there already.... just for light I think and you swap it for a light/rain one. I think the one you're talking about is something to do with dimming the instrument lights. But I could be wrong. Maybe someone else could confirm that.

    EDIT: try looking here....

    https://forums.seatcupra.net/index.php?threads/rain-light-sensor-coding-mk3-fr.421370/

    EDIT 2: Sorry, that is using OBDEleven. Try this...

    https://forums.seatcupra.net/index.php?threads/retro-fit-auto-lights.443686/

    it uses a separate sensor, making me think it's not the one you mention. This looks like an alternative if you haven't got a sensor behind your rear view mirror. Although, if you have climatic control you should have the humidity sensor

    thanks that’s spot on. Mine is the second link where there’s a sensor on the switch.

    For the life of me, I can’t get the leaving home function working. that’s the one I really want. It would be massively helpful.
    manual arriving home works fine. I think I might need to use oDbeleven to code in auto lights.

    Anyone else struggled to get leaving home lights working?

    Just got my Carista as I borrowed one for the one click mirrors and Dealer reset it after a recall.

    It said that the customisations was a PREMIUM item so needed to subscribe then free for a month.
    No problem I get it.
    I thought that some things were free on it and this was one? Does anyone know what they are?

    Also has anyone enabled the 'LOCK CAR WHEN KEY IS OUTSIDE CAR [AND YOU HAVE LEFT IT']
    [That was what me old Renno RS did with keyless. As you walked away it locked. I liked that.

    PLUS I hate all the washer fluid 'deluging' the bonnet what are the suggestions for a good delay or number of washes before it kicks in

    I believe theres different options, one for the alarm to make the sound or one for the horn? might be worth checking. Mine is set to the alarm and is fairly loud.

    Hi all,

    Just trawled through 33 pages but couldn’t establish is the headlight washer delay is a beta setting or included as standard now?

    I saw some reference that beta was closed now for the Leon (facelift FR)...most of the options I want are already enabled on my spec fortunately but the constant headlight wash is frustrating already as need to fill bottle within a week at the moment so would like to order Carista and change this setting or is it something dealer can do? Wasn’t sure about all the debugging info for beta...does that provide any sensitive data or just car settings?

    Thanks all

    Geoff

    Hi,

    My car is about to go in for a safety recall and as part of this I believe they will reset my system and I will no longer have my Carista app modifications. The only one I really care about is the park pilot display so I am keen not to lose that. As I am no longer in beta program does anyone know if this feature is now available in the normal app (i am happy to pay for it)?

    Thanks
