My Purchase experience MB STAR Diagnosis System Compact3

I purchased a Chinese MB STAR Diagnosis System (SDS) Compact3 (C3) on the Internet purely  for educational purposes and so that I could experiment with some of the settings in my W220  S500, especially to do with my pet subject, the Automatic Climate Control (ACC).

MB-STAR-Diagnosis-System-Compact3-1
Purchasing, owning, setting up and using a SDS has turned out to be an extremely difficult project and one not to be undertaken lightly. There is a plethora of information available on SDS on the Internet but unfortunately it is mostly non constructive, quite often abusive, and fairly often not available without paying a fee to some very enterprising people. My SDS as supplied came without any installation instructions other than a couple of crude videos and an out of date pamphlet for the RS232 Card.

After a lot of assumptions and several emails to the supplier, I eventually got connected and began cautiously testing the various functions and capabilities of SDS. I particularly like the Workshop Information System and the StarFinder applications and have used them many times to date. I have yet to have a real need to use DAS but began self training just in case, and progressed to the point where I could exercise the cabin lights (easy to watch from outside the vehicle) and got to the stage of opening and closing various flaps on the ACC. I was able to read out the list of fault codes stored in my vehicle and was surprised to find a transmission issue which has been there for several years.

I then learnt the hard way that installing and switching on the SDS on a laptop connected to the Internet results in the system automatically downloading SDS “Addons” and in the process, it seems, being “Black Listed” by MB thus preventing the MUX from working/connecting. I could still use Xentry in simulation mode, ie with no vehicle connected, and this is extremely useful for training purposes, but I just could not get the SDS to connect again to my vehicle. It took me two months of full time research and experimentation in order to recover from my predicament. I then ran into the problem that it seems all Star C3 SDS have in that they are prone to cease working three months after the date of the SDS Version. In my case an application or “patch” was provided which reset the SDS software. My guidelines should avoid the need to do this in future as I now always configure the laptop date at my SDS Version plus one month, at the start of each session.

My most important and unexpected discovery was that the RS232 data link is temperamental if operated at the recommended baud rate of 115,200 bps. It seems that the MUX provided could not cope with these high data rates. My SDS worked at 57,600 bps but to be on the safe side I have set host and guest COM2 settings to 19,200 9,600 bps and the SDS is now very reliable and connects every time. (Later note: I now have set COM2 baud rate to 9,600 bps as it seems even more stable. I couldn’t be bothered changing all the figures. I just replaced ‘19,200’ with ‘19,200 9,600’ throughout the document.) I also think the order in which you connect is important and I have slightly adapted a procedure suggested by Taztheman.

Difference between MB Star C3 and MB Star C4

Many times ago, i saw a blog about MB sd connect C4 for benz, the author said he like this tool very much, and make a comparison with Mb Star C3 for a result that Mb Star C4 is much better than c3, I was not too much attention to it. However, a month ago, i also saw a thread on an auto fourm about obd2 tools, the generl mean about the thread is Mb Star C3 is better C4. i think it’s a question, so i want to serach some infos on the internet.

I serach “what’s the difference between MB Star C3 and MB Star C4″ with google, and get some answer. Here i made a discription about C3 C4 and with a share.

Many people on the internet all said the MB Star C3, C4 software is the same, C4 whit SD CONNECT also with this software, and for the hardware, C3,C4 is same function in diagnosing.

For mercedes Benz, C3 and C4 also can do work, in my opnion, C4 work with all the benz and more than C3, but C3 can do benz truck very well, this is advantage for c3.
C4 is much stronger in anti-interrupting ability, when C4 tests cars, it’s hard to influence by the environmenr outside, such as magnetic field,noise. C4 is much smaller in the appearance than C3.

MB Star Diagnostic Tool series are the Mercedes-Benz approved dealer diagnostic systems for troubleshooting and programming.

All Star diagnostic system will do Mercedes Benz 1989~up to now Car, Bus, Trucks, Sprint, Smart
MB SD Connect C4 is the newer Star system for newer models and support Mercedes with UDS protocol. SD Connect supports offline/online programming and Vediamo engineering software as well. Super MB STAR is the only Star tool that can be updated online.

All Mercedes Scan Tool systems come with multi-language basic software applications.

1.D-A-S / Xentry: the automatically Diagnosis Assistance System, Concise interface and straightforward operation with IB M high-quality computer can realize the quick and accurate code reading and the whole car system testing
2.W-I-S net: Workshop Information System Supply the whole view of the wiring diagram in a car, component location diagram and maintenance method. What you do is to enter the chassis number, and then you will get the manufacture data, engine configuration and the car model -all in detail.
3.EPC.net: Electronic Parts Catalog
4.ST Finder: Part location finder
5.STARUTILITIES: the movement management system and self-test
6.SDMEDIA
7.PL69

Super MB STAR C3 comes with more software programs, including Smart Tan Code, Developer model and Benz Disassembly system etc comparing with other Star systems.

There are basic 3 formats Star diagnosis software HDD: IBM T30 HDD, Dell D630 HDD, and moveable external HDD. Internal HDD runs faster and stable then external HDD. While external HDD can be easily replaced and has no computer limitation (any laptop has COM-PORT)
Benz compact 4 SD-Connect is a latest Benz wireless multiplexer. It will connect to the PC by wireless connection.
The biggest difference, i think, is connection wiring mode, C3 need 232 port, but C4 can be used with network port, even wireless.

Also, the price C3 and C4 is very different, now C3 is the half price fo C4 as far as I know. could you some guys add more infos? i want to know more, thanks.

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:

2018.09 Mb Star C3 Benz Diagnostic Tool For Benz Trucks & Cars

https://www.cnautotool.com/goods-145-Mb+Star+C3+for+Benz+Trucks++Cars.html

Difference between MB STAR C3 / C4 / C5 :

1.For the functions, MB star c3 and c4 are almost the same,C4 can do all the works what C3 does and it is the replacement of Compact C3.

Just benz star c4 size is small and weight is light,much convenience and the anti‐interrupting ability is better.

One more thing, as customer feedback, the advantage of c3 is can do trucks best.

2.MB starC3, C4 just can support Mercedes Benz cars manufactured after year 2000. Super MB star c5,Benz SD Connect C4 can support all current and new coming MB vehicles.

3.Benz star c3,c4,SD connect C4 update by Hard disk.That means when customer want to update,they need to send back hard disk to supplier,after finish update,then send back to them again or just buy a new HDD.For the long international distance,it may need about 2 weeks can complete one time update,so it is very trouble and inconvenience .

Under this situation,Super mb benz star c5 is release, it is can update through super mb star official web directly, which will be much convenience and time saving.

In addition,Super mb star C5 work with W204, W207, W212, 405, 451, 452 and 454. Besides the software c3 and c4 own,it added three more software: SD Media, Xentry and Smart TAN Code.

SD Media: Video and PDF lessons;

Xentry:New software released by Benz Company after 04/2009 by diagnosis new cars. Xentry software for diagnosing W 204,W207 and W212 which C3 and C4 does not support;

Smart TAN Code: Opened special function in DAS program with Smart cars 405/ 451/452/ 454.Besides, it also opened more special functions, such as engineer mode, remove limitations,etc, which Star C3 and Star C4 do not have.

4.Now we turn to MB star SD connect C4 again.MB Star SD connect C4 not only support KL diagnosis and three lines CAN BUS diagnosis, but also support UDS diagnose protocol, Because it have UDS chips. Star C3,C4,c5 don’t have this chip, so they can not support UDS.

The most advantage of SD connect c4 is: It can connect to PC by wireless or Lan cable.So it will be much more convenience than Benz star C3/C4/c5.

Besides, Professional Diagnostic Tools Mercedes Benz star SD connect C4 interface components used the military quickly inserted techniques that can support one million times plug, more stably;And all of the its core components adopt new original packaged chip, plus 24 hours fatigue test, to ensure its stable release.

Hope all above information will be good for your selection now .

Thank you

Clone Xentry Connect C5- Good & Bad Things

I bought “Original Clone Xentry Connect C5” from China’s retail store in 2017/12.

Good thing:

1. Unlike bad products of C5 type C4 motherboard, texture is good
2. DoIP specification

Bad thing:

1. Because it is VM system + 32bit, the reaction is slow (SSD though …)
2. Vediamo can be used, but feeling like driving with DELL D 630 (unsuitable)
3. The DTS Monaco software is installed but the connection with the vehicle is NG (currently retail stores and manufacturer engineers are thinking about how to fix it)
4. Passwords are applied to each drive, making it hard to customize
5. Retail shops and manufacturer engineers lack knowledge (take time to support)

My thoughts

I think purchasing this product is still early.

There are too many trouble elements.

I’ll report it when the situation changes.

What I currently use (stable and comfortable)

New car: eCom (64 bit)
Normal: Clone SD Connect C4 (64 bit)
Old car: Clone C3

How to do NTG2.5 coding with SDConnect C4

I’m here to tell you

It’s possible to coding NTG2.5 on the benchand test a few things, using SD connect C4 etc.

What you need to do is connect NTG2.5 with your SD Connect 4, you need to connect KL30/KL31/CAN-H/CAN-L, you don’t need to connect the ignition pin because NTG2.5 doesn’t have KL15.

And, you need to attach a 120ohm resistor as a terminal between CAN-H and CAN-L, it’s a request of CAN BUS protocol. You can check this. Found it on a forum

Then, if your connection are all correct, you should use vediamo to code your NTG2.5, the CBF file is HU25.cbf, you can’t use Xentry/DAS because there is no ZGW on your bench, so the Xentry/DAS will never be connected with NTG2.5.

If you want to test rear view camera, you just need connect your camera to the NTG2.5, but you need supply +12V power to your camera manually.

Manually trigger the rear view camera output via Vediamo:

Just press “Rev. Cam.” item like below image in the system setting page, the rear view camera will active if you power the camera up.

On a side note: KL31 bridge

KL 31 just means the Negative Battery Terminal / Ground (I am from germany and the schematics here and in other countries say that Klemme 31 (short KL. 31) is the Minus Terminal of an Battery.

So just connect Pin 15 (A-Block of the Quadlock Connector) to 12V+ (KL. 30) and Pin 12 to the Ground/Negative Terminal of your power supply (KL.31). And now press the ON Button and pray it works (which works always for me )
