    Dongle arrived today, plugged in and followed instructions, paid my subscription, got most everything working apart from drive away locking, I've got two options A or B neither work neither will the coming home lights when I remove the ignition key, anyone help please, being a dumb arse I assume you remove the dongle when done......

    Coming home light is activated by flashing high beam - not just removing the ignition key.

    I think the fix for Carista to enable Auto-Lock is on the way - currently in beta release. That has been discussed in other thread Carista App?

    Both those functions work on my 67 highline

    I'm sure they worked before I joined the beta program too

    Andy - send an email to carista saying some features dont work and they will offer you a beta version of the app - its free and the drive away locking works. I never did get coming home lights to work even with beta tbh - mines a 17 plate MY18 model

    When did you receive it?

    My18's started delivery about September/August and come with the square radar sensor on the front bumper for city brake as standard.

    If you ordered adaptive cruise before this you also would have that radar unit though

    Yeh I ordered my van in January 16 but didn't arrive until November 16, I think VW were looking for a world record in the longest lead time to build a T6 and see how many excuses the salesman could come up with to sand bag me, I've not got the square on the front so I assume mind is a MY 17

    Carista arrived today and I have a month free use of the Pro software with the App if anyone is local and wants to use.

    Was fiddling with Carista today to clear an airbag fault (unplugged the key switch for the passenger airbag and turned on ignition) and noticed there is an option now to turned off the drl when indicating. Don't remember seeing this when I used it 18 months ago.

    there is a wink option which switches the DRL off for the side which is indicating.

    I have seen other vehicles that have that, I don’t think I like it - it looks odd

    Does draw your attention to the indicator though if a vehicle has bright DRLs

    I have enabled it, would have preferred a dimming option.

    Yes it works for me, but only when the headlights are off.
