Carly launches mobile app to increase car performance

Carly launches mobile app to increase car performance

-    Android app can unlock 25 per cent more power in less than ten minutes


-    Available only for diesel  BMW’s for now

Tuning a car for better performance is a lengthy process depending on what part is being tuned. However in this age of smart phones, extracting more performance from your car is just a matter of a few buttons on the phone thanks to Carly. Connected Car, a world market leader in mobile vehicle electronics, has unveiled its first Android app for motorists to change their vehicle engine mapping by phone. Available initially for BMW diesel models, including certain 1,3,5,6,7 and X models, the app has been comprehensively tested with over 5 lakh km of driving in the real world. Results from Carly’s own testing have shown improvements in acceleration, reducing 0-100 kmph times by up to 25 per cent alongside gains in mid-range acceleration to increase responsiveness, offering a helpful boost for overtaking.

Apart from the increase in performance, the app also offers additional paid options like disabling the maximum speed limiter and exhaust gas recirculation. Fully-secure, the app is reversible and unlike traditional remaps, it can be uploaded and restored to standard configuration at any time. This makes it easy to revert the car back to standard at any time but also makes it ideal for those wanting to have different maps; for example, a performance configuration for track days and then return to standard settings for road use.


For now the app is available for BMW models built between 2003 and 2009, Carly will be coming out with the app for other brands soon. Approximate prices start at Rs. 13,000 and includes a specific wire and diagnostic connector that plugs in to the OBD port. While the app has been released in international markets, it remains to be seen if the same is applicable for the Indian BMW models.
