Carly for Mercedes OBDII scanner

[Mod Edit]

Looking for any info on Carly for Mercedes OBDII scanner.

Web site is Carly Shop: Original Adapter für Carly - Connected Car Apps.

They sell a Bluetooth at Mercedes Android.

Looks like there is a app at It loaded on my Note 5. Will see if it works with a BAFX tomorrow.

From what I gather, the app is just for checking for communications. Looks like you have to buy a larger verson of the app.

Does anyone know it the BAFX will work with this app.

If your Mercedes is properly OBD2 compliant, you'll probably do better getting a full spectrum bluetooth adapter like OBDLink MX (search) and Torque app for Android or similar (not sure if Torque supports iphone). The MX has as many available "PID's" as anybody and is updated all the time to add more coverage. Cheap bluetooth adapters sometimes suffer a mismatch on refresh rates vs the ECU (the cheapo's are slow) and malfunction as a result. Pay a bit more and get a real tool IMO.
I have diagnosed issues w/my toad while in Mexico w/my MX and solved a check engine issue and helped solve a misfire problem while miles from a real mechanic's scan tool. Now I have a Deutsch 9-pin to OBD2 adapter cord and use the MX with Cummins code reader app for diesel pusher rigs.
