    Nice, I have got the Carista OBD adapter coming today so over weekend I hope to be able to do some mods.

    what other options were available for you when you went through the carista app?

    Go to Carsita website - the Vehicles tab lists all the cars and what you can do.

    I haven't tried the newest beta yet.


    Lucky 2016 model owners can do all of this without any add-ons - the new SEAT Media System Plus has a menu for "Car Settings" which does the same stuff.

    I thought so, wasn't sure if we had same features, Unsure if the windows from remove would work as we do not have one touch in the Toledo, but I guess it may do,

    but the large MPH and unlock single click are the two I want most :), Plus i have the Beta version so see what that may include :)

    The all windows feature doesn't work - the hardware isn't in the car.

    large MPH is very nice, but single click locks - Halleluja, all that frustration - Gone!

    Haven't tried much on the Ibiza - SWMBO will kick off if I mess about with her car without her say-so - but I have added digital MPH to the above the line display options, which also binned the KPH display below the line.

    set region to Australia.

    go into maxidot Settings and untick "diplay alternate speed"

    then in the MFD where you choose what to display mpg distance avg speed etc the is a new Speed option - tick that one and you've got it.

    ^^^^ Video of Dial Staging and Large MPH ^^^^

    So far very happy with the changes,

    Also played with the Torque Pro app and that's fun to play with,

    ECU speed and GPs speed were very similar, but Speedo was at 30 with Cruise on.

    Is it worth £45 though (software and branded OBD2 dongle) ?

    I think yes.

    But If I already had a compatible dongle and was only splashing out £15 then certainly yes.

    Just for the central locking re-program.

    Agreed,

    I feel the £45 for OEM and software is, as I can use it on other units too and not limited to VAG Either

    Ok you don't have the same ability's as VCDS but it does what most need :) granted I have spend more like £60-£70 in total with adapters that wouldn't work but such is life, still worth it, (esp when its birthday money used) and not wasted on food/drink :)
