Terrible company and customer service!

This company is crap!

They just changed their app to a subscription plan (pro vs. full). They sell it as better for the customer but it really is better for the company and only the company. People do not like subscriptions. I hope they lose tons of money.

So, I just bought the darn adapter on Thursday (3/15) but it didn't come until 3/17. I emailed customer service to get their 5% off coupon on Thursday 3/15.

Then I read on their website on Friday about the subscription service and that if you bought the pro version as of 3/15 I would have gotten the full version at no extra charge and no subscription. So, basically, I missed it by 1 day! The customer service person that emailed me on 3/15 didn't mention anything about this benefit.

So, I email them and they immediately say no. Now I have emailed them back and put a terrible rating on their free app as this is horrible customer service.

It's not like it is 3 months down the road. We are talking about ONE day! Geez. If they only acted like Amazon it would be taken care of already.

Not sure I want to keep this if I have to pay $60 per year! That means every time the dealer updates my car I will have to pay for this and then when I want to change my battery I have to pay for it again. Crazy!

They advertise this as great for the customer because they now get everything included with no add ons but if I bought the pro version and added a couple of things it would cost me like $80 instead of probably over $200 over the lifetime of me owning this car.

Again this company is a bunch of crooks! Stay away!

Then I read on their website ...

Come on man...just because you didn't get the deal you wanted doesn't mean they're "crap". They provide a decent alternative to ESYS for those who don't want to code directly themselves...

You do have another alternative with BimmerCode if you want "options"...

I have both and am satisfied with each...just my .02

I am usually a reasonable person but their business plan is not good for the consumer. Do not advertise it as such. I was ok with the add ons as a one time charge. I would even be ok with a flat fee of say $80-100 for lifetime updates and access (keep the subscription fee as well). The fact is a good company would make exceptions to keep customers happy. They didn't even offer an alternative.

I am sure you or anyone would be pissed off if you missed something by a day and the company could have given you a heads up before you missed the opportunity.

I have looked into bimmercode. It seems more reasonable but I have read people having issues with the OBD device that he suggests.

I am still waiting to hear back from the Carly again to see if they can help out. Other bad part is they have no phone number to call it is only via email. This could be solved quickly via a phone call.

Hi,
I got a F31(NBT)and looking to code enhanced bluetooth. Found Carly and if I look up my model it should be possible.

From the carly website:

Audio source iPhone 1/2
• on
• on (alternative)
• off
If an iPhone is connected via USB (either in the glove box or in the center console) it can be used as an audio source. (codable in NBT)

Audio source iPhone 2/2
• on
• on (alternative)
• off
Only change this function with ‘Tire pressure menu in iDrive 1/3’. (codable in NBT)

Anybody knows what the last part means? Time pressure menu 1/3?

Thanks!
