But the good thing is that once you have the hardware (ELM327-compatible device), you'll be able to see what settings Carista offers for your particular car BEFORE paying for the app: you only need to do the in-app purchase ("Pro Package") if you want to change a setting.

Also, it's possible to collect some debug data from the car using a debug feature of the app, that will show me which specific settings are supported. If someone is willing to do this with a US CT200h, please let me know and I'll give you instructions on how to collect and send me the data. When I get it, I'll post the list of available settings here for everyone to see. Again, this would just be an example of one specific car of a specific year and with specific factory options. But it will give you guys an idea about what kinds of settings are available on these cars.

And yes, we are indeed adding more settings as we go along (and they'll be available as a free update to the app). We aim to cover 100% of what the dealer can change. We're not quite there yet, but we're close.

We've specifically not included the seatbelt chime setting for legal liability reasons, but if it turns out that there's no law against disabling those in any country where we offer the app, we'll gladly include this setting. We're still in the process of consulting with lawyers on that.
I would be happy to provide the debug data. PM me the details and I will send.

On the seatbelt chime, just stick in a disclosure when someone removes it... Pop up that you agree to waiving liability, blah blah blah.. just my 2 cents

So, out of the settings listed above, which one do you guys think is the most useful? Reverse beep? Or something else?

Open trunk via smart access button
DISABLED / DOUBLE CLICK / LONG PRESS

So... not much to write home about, sorry! We did add about 30 new settings, but a lot of them are related to the power tailgate (for SUV models) and advanced seat-control options for models with lux seats or higher levels of equipment. Some are also related to the smart-key access system, and one of those applies to your car. Actually, if you don't mind, would you please test that setting in the beta? I'm not 100% sure what exactly it controls. I believe it applies to the unlock button if your smart remote has one, or maybe to the soft-touch lock button on the door handle if the remote doesn't have one. I'd appreciate it if you could try it and let me know, so I can update the description to be more precise. Thanks in advance

Not in the VERY near future, but some months down the road, maybe. See http://www.caristaapp.com/ios/

Just a quick update: we're starting development on an iOS version now
And we've officially released version 2.1 for Android that some of you guys were beta-testing earlier.
