How to choose MB STAR C3, sdconnect c4 , sdconnect C5 etc

SDConnect C5, sdconnect c4 Plus, sdconnect c4Mb Star C3 which to buy?One senior member shares his practical buying guide.

Before deciding to buy MB STAR C3, sdconnect c4 / SD C5, you need to answer a couple questions why you want a MUX/Diagnostics.

1.  Do you just want to read and reset fault codesin your car?
2.  Do you want to change configurations?
3.  Do you want to purchase something now that you can use for any newer cars you may get?

If you only want to read and reset fault codes you do not need ANY MUX (C3/C4) at all!! You can just use a passthru cable for around $20 or get fancy and get a wireless passthru “cable”. There are limitations with what a passthru cable can do but not sure what. I only used it to read initial codes on a 2017 GLA 250 while I was waiting for my C4 to arrive. I used a Toyota MVCI Xhorse clone.

If you want more support capability than a passthru you only need a C3 MUX for your car and use XENTRY/DAS 11/2012 version (this is the last most thorough version compatible with C3 MUX)If you want to purchase a “future proof” mux that can read old and new cars then purchase a C4 MUX and use the latest XENTRY 2019 version. C3 MUX with 2012 DAS software can work up to 2011 W204 from my own experience.

There are different chipsets (better or cheaper clone copies) on the circuit boards in the C4 MUX so you have to be careful which you buy — many places may have just as good of quality mux but this is where I purchased mine with the better chips (verified once I received it), good packaging, fast shipping and communicated well prior to buying it

How-to-choose-MB-STAR-C3-sdconnect-c4-sdconnect-C5-1

Recently, there is one sdconnect C4 Plus MUX, which is needed for some newer cars with DoIP protocol like W222, covering Benz cars from 1989 to 2019 year.

What make it difference is it is compatible with DTS Monaco and Vediamo.

How-to-choose-MB-STAR-C3-sdconnect-c4-sdconnect-C5-2

C5 MUXs that are being sold are mostly FAKE — they are only C4 MUX with upgraded housings. You can mod a C4 for DoIP if needed. A true C5 is very expensive and has its own HDD.

You can get the software from cartechnology.co.uk for free and another great site is mhhauto.com but have to pay $25 to register — both sites are invaluable!! I have had to use information from both sites.

I myself went overboard and spent a bit on a Samsung 9 Pro laptop upgraded to a 1TB NvME SSD drive with Windows 10 that converts into a tablet that I use dedicated to my car diagnostic programs (325GB+ just in XENTRY/Vediamo/EPC/WIS/Starfinder/SDMedia) I use this wirelessly with a C4 MUX.

If you are not computer literate then by all means purchase a complete set with MUX and laptop with software preloaded. Anyhow hope this helps get you in the right direction but most users can get by with everything needed for only a few dollars using just a passthru cable.

Attach one image of MUX and laptop with software preloaded:

How to Restore BMW ICOM Next in 12 steps

How to Restore BMW ICOM NEXT? This post will show an obd2eshop customer’s solution to BMW ICOM Next restore when you has red LEDs turn on issue when running firmware upgrade. In order to solve your incident, please apply the following 12 steps:

Note: DO NOT UNPLUG the BMW ICOM Next emulator from the {OBD II} jack after an update via {ISTA}, a web interface or an emergency software update.

The {ICOM Next} starts with flashing green SYSTEM {LED}s. After about 10 seconds it shows red {LED}s for about 2 minutes. After this, the {ICOM Next} reboots due to a firmware update.

If the {ICOM Next} {LED}s remain red for more than 10 minutes, or if the {ICOM Next} is unplugged directly after an update, please carry out the following procedure:

1. Please ensure that ALL of the following prerequisites are satisfied:

1.1. You require a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 flash drive. {USB 1.x flash drives are not supported).

1.2. The USB flash drive must be formatted with a FAT32 file system.

1.3. A minimum of 60 MByte free space is required on the USB flash drive.

2. Navigate to “C:\ProgramData\BMW\ISPI\data\TRIC\ICOMNext\ICOM-Image-03-14-08”.

ProgramData folder is hidden by default. In that case, you have two options in order to access the file or the folder:

– change the settings directly in the Windows Explorer (“Tools => Folder Options => View => Show hidden files, folders or drives”)

– or enter the whole path into the Windows Explorer’s address bar and press enter.

3. Copy “{ICOM_Next-rootfs-010002.tar.gz}” to the root directory of the {USB} flash drive.

4. Copy “{ICOM_Next-app-010008.tar.gz}” to the root directory of the {USB} flash drive.

5. Disconnect the {ICOM Next} from the power supply.

6. Plug the {USB} flash drive into the {ICOM NEXT}.

7. Press and hold the button pressed on the {ICOM Next} and connect the {ICOM NEXT} to the {OBD II} jack of a vehicle.

8. Keep the button pressed. The {ICOM NEXT} starts with all {LED}s glowing red. The {LED}s stay red; some may flicker orange/yellow. Keep the button pressed.

9. Keep the button pressed. After about 4 seconds, all {LED}s turn orange/yellow. All {LED}s now glow in the same colour.

10. Release the button and then press it three times within five seconds. The {LED}s glow or flash red and orange/yellow again.

11. Wait: This procedure may take several minutes. Do not disconnect the {ICOM NEXT} as long as any {LED} glows red.

12. After about 5 minutes the SYSTEM {LED} turns green again. The {ICOM NEXT} has been updated and is ready for use.

IMPORTANT: When the software update is complete, the {ICOM NEXT} needs to be connected to the dealer’s network in order to be reconfigured.

All previous settings are lost during the update. If there is a “{user.settings}” file on the {USB} flash drive, it will be applied after the firmware update.

VXDIAG VCX Nano GDS2 & Tech2Win Work Good for GM

VXDIAG VCX NANO is PC-to-vehicle interface compatible with multiple software applications, minimizing your investment in multiple brand-specific diagnostic interfaces.

Today we’d like to share user’s experience with VXDIAG VCX NANO GDS2 Device , it is for GM/OPEL, this one support WIFI connection . You can use tech 2 to view and diag BCM, HVAC, issues, BOSE issues, etc…

I had a 4.0+ amp draw since I purchased the car, problem is I thought it was intermittent issue, 2nd issue was once the voltage dropped below the threshold the amp draw would disappear… in the end it was reproducible after 3 on then off, then lock, key cycles. ended up being the MSM memory seat module (aka seat control module) well the dealer wanted time to program it for $90. Since I already replaced it, I was tired of paying the stealerships for 5 mins of coding. New MSM’s are blank and require programming, hence the need for this tool, nothing comes close as for cost and end result.

Now on to the good news, new MSM installed and coded and working great and no amp draw, also playing around I found other control modules that needed to be updated, some things I saw available as well like – After blower option for our HVAC. Looks like we might be able to update to add a rear camera if we have the factory parts.

I even updated my Magneride suspension F55, radio, HVAC, Drive door control module, some others had updates available.

GM MDI GDS2 programming…

Tech2Win DIAG….


USB Drivers, and software setup was a little bit of a PITA, its not exactly a straight forward install, and no instructions other than some youtube videos.

If you just want a Tech 2 its comes with the VXDIAG, you access GDS2 programming its via GM’s acdelcotds site to install that software, there’s not a lot of documentation.

The CD that came with my interface only had tech 2 & MDI software, and VMplayer to run GDS2 for 30 days, I am still trying to figure stuff out.

Which version do you have wifi or usb? also try downloading the new VX manager from all scanners website (Chinese everywhere but you will see it towards the bottom), then update the VX interfaces drivers I believe as of writing this is 1.5xxx, (VX manager was buggy, I had to restart the application a few times and reboot once) from the VX manager of the left make sure to install pass-thru & GDS2/T2W drivers, I was not able to connect at all without all the drivers installed of this completed correctly.

Getting the SPS working took a lot of Java updates and requiring me to turn off windows defender and firewall rules, also on GM’s site, you may purchase their version of the emulation software for tech 2 which is $275 (1x time fee) which I skipped on. I only pulled fault codes and looked at some tech 2 stuff but seemed ok, also did you have a battery charger on when you where bleeding? key on engine off eats power, as a former MB tech we always hooked up the battery charger anytime the SDS (MB’s tool) was connected. I will try playing around with the tech 2 some more I need to bleed the brakes on my 2016 Sierra.

I mostly used this for programming via SPS, best part is it will work for 2008-2017 GM vehicles for programming which for me and my entire family works perfect!

GDS2 as it is global diag systems, only seems to work for most new vehicles like 2012 CTS since we are on a CTSV site, otherwise Tech 2 is the diag… tool used for most vehicles which would include abs bleed function.
