Product Description

Carista checks your vehicle for engine faults, and allows you to clear any existing fault codes. Using a standard Bluetooth adapter that plugs into your vehicle’s diagnostic port (known as OBD port), Carista can determine the cause of your “check engine” light. The app also shows whether your vehicle is ready for emission testing. Carista is ad-free and it's free!

The easiest way to check your vehicle’s health:
Carista is extremely simple to use, with no configuration necessary. There are only 2 buttons in the entire app: “CHECK FAULTS” and “RESET FAULTS”. Carista automatically discovers and connects to your Bluetooth adapter. There are no settings, no device configuration, and no menus.

Are you ready for emission testing?
Carista shows you whether each component in your vehicle’s emission-control system is ready to be tested by the authorities. The system may not be ready if you’ve just reset your fault codes; in that case, you must drive the vehicle for a while until the emission-control system gathers enough data.

Hardware/software requirements:
- Android phone or tablet running Android 2.1 or newer (including Kindle Fire)
- ELM327 Bluetooth adapter, which you can get at many online retailers like Amazon

Vehicle compatibility:
- US-market cars and light trucks since 1996
- European-market cars and light trucks since 2001 (petrol) or 2004 (diesel)
- Japanese-market vehicles that comply with JOBD

Note: For now, Carista is just an OBD2 scan tool with no "pro" features and does NOT display any real-time sensor data, gauges, performance, horsepower, torque, or any other live data. The idea of this app is to provide a simple and efficient way to diagnose your "check engine" or "service engine soon" light. Nothing more, nothing less.

Had a intermittent fault code on my Peugeot 206,it took the Carista OBD2 about 10 seconds to check and clear the fault,at a cost of £0.00,plus the cost of a ELM 327,about £7.00,what would a garage have charged £30.00 or more.Can't fault the app.

ToyotaPrius owner...greatest answer to the usless sestbelt chimes or irritating reverse beeps

Carista its a excellent app. Coding user friendly..simplified via macro buttons.

But like few other apps u can only buy the full package via other form of payments excepted.

To the few mindless minions out there..I dont need reminding bout the seat belts or my own safety. . So carista allowing me to affordably switch these options off is brilliant.

Would not read or connect to my Jaguar X type OBDII I'm sure it works well with other manufacturers. Nice touch was the ability to send error report to developers.

Fairly simplistic interface, but linked to a budget USB device okay and read the codes from my Ford Focus. Also managed to clear an old error from the log. Not much of an interface but it was free...

Didn't work on a BMW Z4 but neither more expensive kit.
