It works as advertised, and is very simple to use. I turned off the "wink" DRL feature, and enabled remote top/windows operation.

Also activated flashing brake lights in S5 and Q7.

App is basic. Cost me $20 for the pro version. So a total of $60. :thumbsup:

Nice job of listing all that... sounds pretty good to me. I'm not after an all singing all dancing reader and certainly can't be bothered buying a laptop just to read my car once in a blue moon. Anything out of the ordinary I get an expert to read it... but looks like a good starter unit to start getting more familiar. :thumbup:

Ok bit of an update, at present the App doesn't let you clear service warnings

BUT

whilst playing around with my wife's S1 I managed to stumble across a known glitch in the Audi software which caused the wipers and headlight range finder to stop working. After a call to Carlista tech support (who were superb by the way) they sent me a Beta version of the software which does include the function to clear service lights etc this will be released as an update in a few weeks.

I would also like to know if you can reset the maintenance light. Seems like a hell of a deal at a tenth of the price of a vag-com.
By maintenance light do you mean fault codes?

Screen shots I just captured from my phone.
