I use OBD Eleven
I have Carista but haven’t used it yet

But then I also have the full version of VCDS (or Vag Com as it was known)

They are both very similar and your find lots of people with good reports on both systems.

You just need to choose the system that suits you.

I personally use the OBD Eleven system and have no issues with this.

Cant talk for Carista, but I have used OBDEleven for 3-4 years across an A3, A5, and now a Tig. Very easy to use.

I tend to stay away from the apps and stick to VCDS style long coding.

A mate just bought a Kodiaq so I am keen to see what coding is available to do on that.
