And it doesn't work on BMW's G platform also doesn't look like you own one.

It does look like G20 is now supported. Been looking into a coding option, any benefits to Carly vs Bimmercode? Seems like Carly is a yearly subscription?

Explanation?

Sorry if I sound ignorant. Anyone care to explain this? I can code things myself? And code what? How does it work? Not sure if this includes coding for the headlights in NA? Sorry if this can be found in another thread.

You can code things in your vehicle using software. For example you may be able to code auto start stop to always remain off whenever you start your car if you hate having to turn it off every time. Or maybe always starting it in sport mode instead of comfort. You can do tons of things.

After struggling with Carly for 4 months I decided to try Bimmercode and what a difference.

BimmerCode is great, I have everything coded that I need already. The app is much better designed than Carly, the user support was excellent and most importantly, it works.

They let me try their latest version in beta (4.1) which includes many additional coding options, so we know they are working to cover more coding features.

Don't waste your money on Carly, go with BimmerCode.

So far I coded

Auto start stop memory *
Key FOB trunk open and close *
Interior trunk open and close *
Startup Legal disclaimer off *
Tire pressure and Temperature *
Turn signal lane change 5 blink*
Active sound design off *

I just got myself a Carly Universal dongle, and paid for the full android app. I tried looking for help on some aspects of Carly, it talks about a Manual, but all links go back to some Zendesk wiki thing, with like 3 questions/answers for BMW technical, absolutely useless. I am really regretting my purchase so far.
