I did a few cool and easy tweaks, but also not sure how to do a couple more things that i wanted.


1) mirror dip in reverse - didnt work. Not sure why???
2) digital clock on infotainment. How would i get that??
3) windows down with remote key. Again didn't work.
4) enabling corresponding DRL when turn signal is on. Didnt see an option for it

Anyone done this with their golf?

Couldn’t get my mirror dip to work either.
Windows down - same... works on my mk6 but can’t get it to work on my 7.

I got Carista before I new about obd11... cause obd11 seems soo much better

You have to enable the mirror dip and windows down on your infotainment system after you enable it on your dongle. Enabling it on the dongle "unlocks" the option to turn it on using your car settings menu in the infotainment.

For mirror dip, you have to have your mirror adjustment knob turned to the right side at all times to get it to work. I think you'll find this feature loses its luster after a week of having to readjust your mirror because it doesn't return to the right spot, or it goes up and points at the sky instead of the ground

Idk. #3 works (up and down) on MK7 GTIs

Mirror dip requires power folding mirrors.
Non power folding mirrors do not have the encoders to detect mirror position. You can code it, and it will "work"... But the mirror will not return to its previous position nor will it know where to stop when put in reverse. I know, I tried it.
Wrong (kinda). You do not need power folding mirrors for the mirror dip in reverse. It will work, and about 80% of the time it works correctly. But the other 20% of the time it works incorrectly is enough to annoy you into disabling it again.
Does it matter which button you hold down?
Lock button for windows up, unlock for windows down

I don't know what you did but it never ever worked for me. Would dip all the way down and would never come back. Installed power folders and it worked as expected.
