Carly, the disruptive CarTech company that directly connects drivers with their car’s under-the bonnet data, launches their hotly anticipated Universal Onboard Diagnostic Scanner in the UK on 19th July, following significant success and over two million users across Europe and the US.
Carly aims to revolutionise the car industry by giving drivers the ability to directly access their car’s diagnostics systems, without needing to visit a garage. The Carly app and its accompanying scanner offers car owners, regardless of technical expertise, the opportunity to perform vehicle diagnostics, view live data, and take advantage of expert guidance from their in-pocket Smart Mechanic feature.
The Carly scanner packs innovative technology into a sleek, compact device that can simply be placed into the OBD (On-Board Diagnostic) port of a vehicle made after 2000. When partnered with the user-friendly Carly app, the scanner can effortlessly read and clear fault codes, perform advanced diagnostics, perform battery health check and, depending on the user’s car make and model, code certain car features and check for mileage manipulation.
Although scanning data from the OBD port of a car is a method that has been used by mechanics for many years, this data has never been made directly accessible to consumers.
Carly’s revolutionary technology aims to disrupt this narrative and put car owners back in the driving seat, by providing access to the data behind the bonnet and making it understandable for users. With its pioneering app you no longer need to be a mechanic to take control of your car’s health.
The game changing Carly technology offers users access to six primary features including Diagnostics, Smart Mechanic, Battery Health, Engine Live Data, Maintenance and Coding. The Carly Diagnostics feature provides a detailed picture of the health of your vehicle by reading out fault codes from up to 80 electronic control units (ECUs) and combining them with additional consumer friendly information.
