ECU Setting Customisation

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Have any of you tried this iOS/Android app@

http://www.caristaapp.com/

 

It appears to allow you to update config settings using OBD2 adapter.  I have the necessary hardware for this, but it costs money to enable the feature to save settings so have not tried it yet.  It supports the following on my car, although the website suggests it should support some more options around climate control settings.  

 

Doors / Windows / Remote:

    Blink turn signals when locking/unlocking with remote

          YES / NO

    Beep when locking/unlocking with remote

    Re-lock doors automatically if you unlock, but don't open a door within…

          30 SECONDS / 60 SECONDS / 120 SECONDS

    Unlock doors via remote

          DRIVER'S DOOR ON 1ST PRESS, ALL ON 2ND / ALL DOORS ON 1ST PRESS

 

Instruments / Display / Dings:

    Key-in-ignition ding sound

          SLOW / MEDIUM / FAST

    Ding when headlights are left on

          YES / NO

    Seat belt warning ding (driver)

          ENABLED / DISABLED

    Seat belt warning ding (front passenger)

          ENABLED / DISABLED

 

Lights:

    Daytime running lights

          ON / OFF

    Coming-home lights duration

          OFF / 30 SECONDS / 60 SECONDS / 90 SECONDS

    Auto headlights activation threshold

          DARKEST / DARKER / NORMAL / LIGHTER / LIGHTEST

    Dim interior lights after…

          7 SECONDS / 15 SECONDS / 30 SECONDS

    Turn on interior lights when you shut off engine

          YES / NO

    Turn on interior lights when you unlock doors

Yes, so far changed auto light sensitivity so they go off when it is dark rather than when the sun is a bit low or shadey :)

I tried the engine start indicator but couldn't see any difference.

The Lock bleep option doesn't seem to do anything as the UK cars don't bleep. I have the alarm bleep when I lock the doors instead (an alarm customisation option)

More tests tomorrow!

Sadly not, I don't think the necessary cabling exists and the option isn't there :( I have asked to join the beta program and have uploaded my debug data to hopefully unlock more options.

The latest android beta version has additional tools but you need a Bluetooth OBD to work with android. Mine is is wifi

Beta is now installed.  It gives control of the heater settings.  I have used it so far to:

 

1) not turn on AC when i turn on front demisted

2) Remove a -1c calibration on the temperature dial.  I often though it was under reading, so will give that a try.

 

Additional tools such as service indicator resets (not needed on our cars) etc will be coming shortly also.

Hi mate, I can't get down to that meet I'm afraid. Dunstable is a bit of a mission for me. If you are ever up this way I could tweak your car

convoy with the others that are coming down from the North West
