The Carista Adapter

  • Compatible with other third party apps.

  • Works on both iOS and Android via Bluetooth LE.

  • Includes 1 month Free trial of paid app features.




Carista have released a new update to the app that will include some serious improvements. It will contain the following features:

  • New diagnostics UI and overall UI refresh
  • DPF regen for VAG (some models only)
  • DEF for VAG
  • Portuguese translation
  • Service reset for Touareg (2nd gen) 
The current DPF tool covers all 2011-2015 (inclusive) model year diesel engines, regardless of their cylinder count or volume. 2015+ 4-cylinder engines (1.4, 1.6, 2.0 TDI) will not be advertised as supported, as we can't guarantee the DPF service tool would be visible in the app for them. 2015+ 6-cylinder engines (2.7, 3.0 TDI) will likely be supported with the current tool. Support for all 2011+ diesel engines coming soon.
