Why 09.2014 Xentry XDOS is best for Part D (C3)

The reason why Xentry Diagnostic Openshell version 09.2014 is the best software for MB STAR C3 is that:

anything after Xentry 09.2014 you have to do too many fixes to get it fully working..

For those with Mb Star C3 mux, YOU HAVE TO KNOW:

11.2012 Xentry: best for OFFLINE PROGRAMMING

09.2014 Xentry: the BEST – the most famous and favorite

12.2015 Xentry: advise to use xentry xp/xdos up to 12/2015

05.2016 Xentry: the LAST version working with PartD aka C3

07.2018 Xentry: the NEWEST version but better work with SDconnect C4 or Xentry Connect C5

If there is any chance it will work with C3, the first thing is to play with toolkit.ini

It will be in c:\program files\Mercedes-Benz\SDconnect Toolkit\bin\toolkit.ini or C:\Program Files (x86)\Mercedes-Benz\SDconnect Toolkit\bin\toolkit.ini

There will be a line that says UseComPorts=

Here add the port number you wish to use.

Note that since 2016-01 part D is replace with part Z (bosch vci). so if you want to use C3, you have to use old driver.

In summary, version 09.2014 is the best for your C3!!

V2017.9 Original Software Mercedes Benz MB SD C5 SD Connect Compact 5 Star Diagnosis with Engineer

Benz c5 from www.obd2tool.com can provide complete diagnosis for the newest hybrid W222. And it has a qualitative improvement in hardware and software by authorization of diagnostic interface to control the software.can work on windows xp, win7/8/10 system.

C5 Star Benz SD Connect DoIP Wifi MB Star C5 Xentry Tab Kit Diagnosis Multiplexer
Benz c5 can provide complete diagnosis for the newest hybrid W222. And it has a qualitative improvement in hardware and software by authorization of diagnostic interface to control the software.
The tool we sell do not include the xentry tab, you can equip one yourself or choose other laptop, it is just as a display, no special requirement.

Xentry Connect (VCI+) Technical Parameters:
1.OS: Windows Embedded Standard 7(32bit)
2.Processor: ArrandaieCeleron P4500 oder P4505(38W TDP)
3.Memory: 4G hard disk with 256GB SSD
4.Display: 128*64 PX
5.Battery: 40 minutes (When CPU capacity to 60%)
6.Weight: 1.9KG
7.Network connection: WLAN : IEEE802.11 a/b/g/n2.4+5GHZ
The way to connect: support wireless connection via 1000M workshop switches, also support wired connection.

What the difference on diagnostic systems based on Xentry Connect from other equipment used to diagnose Mercedes cars?

What are its distinguishing features?
Hardware, despite the similarity of many solutions with multiplexers SDConnect –
but the different All diagnostic software is loaded into the Xentry Connect multiplexer itself.
The management software can be installed on any computer with Windows 7 – 32-bit or Windows 8 – 32-bit and serves only for communication with the multiplexer
The licensing system is reworked – now licenses are stored on MB servers – Any license changes are tracked by the multiplexer when connected to the Internet network.

Why should buy Xentry connect
After 2015, all Star Diagnosis equipment is no longer supported. First of all, this means that there is no update of the diagnostic data for the newest cars and their systems, as well as the lack of the possibility of coding and programming of electronic units due to the backlog of the software data level in the device, from data in the electronic control units of the car.
Already at the end of 2014, at most dealerships, almost all of the previously used MB SD Connect C4 with SDConnect DoIP multiplexers were almost completely removed. Instead, dealers received Xentry Kit kits, which include the latest Xentry Connect multiplexers and Xentry Tab tablets from Panasonic. Tablets are custom-made, although they also have a “civilian” version – the Panasonic Toughbook CF-D1,
somewhat inferior in terms of battery life to the original Xentry Tab, but it has a much more powerful configuration.
Honestly, the need to use the Xentry Tab on non-dealer services seems somewhat exaggerated to me. With dealers everything is clear – they were forced to use this equipment.
And what about workshop service? Undoubtedly, the tablet from Panasonic is not very bad … But … Its price is disheartening. The cost of the Japanese tablet is realistic to buy pieces of eight new laptops or tablets from other manufacturers.
So , we suggest buy Xentry connect from us , then buy a laptop yourself . the software from which Xentry Connect is managed can be installed without any problems on any computer that has a 32-bit version of Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10. It’s clear with Xentry Connect itself – there’s no alternative .
After all, in this choice there are many reasons that encourage one to make a decision. The main thing is one: since 2015, the Mercedes Benz Diagnostic Scanner diagnostic multiplexer Xentry Connect C5 becomes the only one used at dealerships.
Thus, by purchasing this equipment, you do not lag behind the progress. You use in your work the best that is available today. Each your client, seeing with his own eyes that you in your work use the same device that he saw at the dealer’s service station, will understand that he made the right decision entrusting his car to your specialists.

Package List:
1pc x C5 Multiplexer (new C5 case)
1pc x OBDII 16PIN Cable
1pc x Lan Cable

MB Star C3 092015 Xentry cannot work on W204

Mb Star C3 Star diagnostic system failed to work on Mercedes W204? Here is the customer solution. You are at your risk!

Problem:

I have DELL D630 with Xentry 09/2015 and MB Star C3 multiplexer. I have connected many cars (W202, W203, W210, W211, W245, etc) and there is no problem with connection – everything is working like a charm. Some days ago, I have bought W204 C280 from 2007. After I choose model, engine and transmission, and I go to diagnostic I see this:

“The diagnosis application is being started…”

27-1

and few seconds later this:

“Initialization of the multiplexer has failed”

27-2

My Mux is not compatible with W204? I searched few hours without success.

Customer solution:
W204 and X204 is the last Mercedes models which working without some special modifications.
You can try:

First try in toolkit.ini delete line skipcomports=all and set line usecomport=2 then you will see in SDconnect toolkit PartD on display after mux connection.

First save your original file for sure.

Try look into C:\Userdata\Config\Xentry\driver – slave.ini and set there com port which you have used for PartD.

Report:

There was no change because I didn’t restarted system. After restart work perfect.

Your solution work perfectly! Probem solved. Everything is working like a charm.

Obd2tool.com solution:

If you need to deal with newer Mercedes models, better go for MB SD Connect Compact 4 or Mercedes BENZ C5 diagnostic system.

Why MB Star C3 Xentry cannot work on W205 recent Mercedes

User puzzles:

I have installed Xentry 9.2014 in Benz star c3 multiplexer. It works well so far. Now, I need to make diagnosis on mercedes w205 year 12/2014 but It can not communicate with the car. C3 don’t work in all recent cars in xentry but in DAS is ok.

Experienced users’ suggestion:

C3 has many limitation regarding latest vehicles in Xentry.
It can’t diagnose it e.g w205, w212, w222, w906, smart 453 etc.

its glory is already passed unless you deal only with vehicles in DAS.
you have to change to MB SD Connect C4.
C4’s support also officially has been stop since 12-2015.

It is no different even you change folder.
it is different protocol with recent vehicles.

For your w205 (nice car) you can use one of this :
1.sd connect c4
2.MB SD Connect Compact 5

Both good at all new Mercedes Benz models,W222, W221, W212, W203, 211,W 204,W207, W212, GL166, B 246, CLS 218, SLK172 and Smart405, 451, 452, 454

Besides the MB Star diagnosis software c3 and c4 own, sdconnect c4/c5 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.

I have successfully communicated wit my w205 AMG using a MB Star diagnosis SD Connect C4 connect all controllers accessed

2017.07 MB SD Connect C4/C5 software can’t be used normally ?
