new battery coding, what dongle?

Post by andyedwards » Mon Jan 04, 2016 2:25 pm

Happy new year.

Going to get a new battery in the next few weeks, what the best Bluetooth dongle to work with carly?
Had a look on ebay and they are as cheap as £5 but they all seem to state "android", when I search for "IOS" then the price goes up to £60.
I can borrow a friends android phone if I cant get a cheap one to work with my iphone.
Im not bothered about all the functions working so just need to get the right cheap dongle to register the battery.
Also does the lite version of the app allow you to do this or will I have to purchase the full app

You need the carly one, as the cheap ones only connect but don't really allow much function. They used too but the dev's disabled the function at some point. You would also need the full version plus pay about £8 for coding IIRC.

Don't want to fork out for that dongle and app as I prob wont use it afterwards.

Once you see what the Carly app can do you won't regret buying it. If it reads one fault code to aid a diagnosis it's paid for itself.
