Global Diagnostic System (GDS2)MDI (Multiple Diagnostic Interface)

The GM MDI is the Global Diagnostic tool for future vehicles starting with Global A vehicles. It’s a compact communication module that manages the transfer of data between a vehicle’s onboard ECU network with an auxiliary CAN bus.

The GM MDI was introduced in the fall of 2007 for Pass-Thru programming and offers faster programming speed using J2534. Depending on vehicle architecture, the MDI can communicate 20% to 70% faster than the Tech 2. It can be used to perform Pass-Thru programming on all vehicles built since 1996 and into the future. Please note that there are other J2534 VCIs (vehicle communication interface) that will perform MDI functions utilizing GDS2 software.

Servicing the next generation Global A vehicles requires the diagnostic software, GDS2 (Global Diagnostic System 2) running on a local PC device while the MDI is connected to the vehicle.

The MDI connects to the vehicle via the J1962 connector using a DLC cable. Connection between the MDI and the PC can be accomplished via standalone (USB) or through (CAT5, or Wireless) networks.

Should I buy GM MDI if I have Tech 2 already

I have a Tech 2 Scanner in hand, so is it necessary to buy a new GM MDI interface?

I am using Tech 2 off https://www.obd2tool.com/goods-1568-GM+Tech2+GM+Scanner+-CANdi++TIS+(Works+for+GMSAABOPELSUZUKIISUZUHolden).html

Here you go

The Future of the Tech 2
The Tech 2 remains an essential tool through at least the 2010 model year. The GM MDI will not support past models when its diagnostic capabilities are introduced. And, the Tech2 will continue to be needed to diagnose all vehicles fromprevious model years. Remote programming with the Tech 2 will continue to be supported for use on all 2007 and previous vehicles.Additional information will be supplied in future.

HOW WILL THE G-M MDI BE USED?
The new G-M MDI can be used only in the Pass-Thru method. This means you can use it as your programming tool, while your Tech 2/CANdi remains available for diagnostics and other duties.

This is exact paragraph from a sales pitch document for the MDI. I have issues with it, however:

The GM MDI will not support past models when its diagnostic capabilities are introduced.
I’m not sure what this means. The GM MDI WILL clearly support past model years with the tech2win applications. So I’m not sure what this statement actually means. The only thing I can think of is that GM will remove pass thru support at a later date, but since it’s all been cracked already, this shouldn’t matter.

The new G-M MDI can be used only in the Pass-Thru method. This means you can use it as your programming tool, while your Tech 2/CANdi remains available for diagnostics and other duties.
This statement implies that the pass thru method is a bad thing. Considering the tech2win application works perfectly with EVERY function on all GM vehicles as far back as 1996, I don’t understand what this is really saying. It implies that you can’t do diagnostic troubleshooting using pass-thru, when in fact you can.

As far as I can tell from my testing, this is a basic sales pitch in order to encourage people to keep the tech2 as well as purchase a MDI2 unit – both of which are incredibly expensive if purchased legitimately through GM.

In reality, you don’t need a tech2 and a MDI2. An MDI interface is more than enough especially on our older cars like the C5 corvette which GM will unlikely ever release further PCM upgrades for given the fact they were discontinued over 10 years ago.

Xentry DAS & HTT-WIN Star Diagnosis Softwares

Mercedes Star Diagnosis software 2018.12 Version release work with Mercedes SD Connect C4, SD C5 for SCN coding online no error. 2018.12 Mercedes Star Diagnosis come with Xentry DAS HTT-WIN for Mercedes Benz old & new cars till 2018. What’s the difference of HHT-WIN and Xentry and DAS? why choose obd2tool.com 2018.12 Mercedes Star Diagnosis software? Check the reasons below.

2018.12 Mercedes Star Diagnosis come with Xentry DAS HTT-WIN on windows 7 32 bit System

Xentry-DAS-HTT-WIN-1
2018.12 Xentry diagnosis software is the latest version software available for SCN Coding programming, the software such as Xentry 2017.05, Xentry 2017.09 cannot login for SCN online coding again.
2018.12 Xentry diagnosis software installed win7 32bit system with HHT-WIN software work for old model, some other Xentry diagnosis software with 64 bit NOT includ HHT-WIN software.

HHT-WIN vs Xentry vs DAS:
Xentry took me to DAS, and DAS switched over (automatically) to good old HHT-WIN, again. Guess my 16-year old SUV’s system is a bit ancient in the scheme of Mercedes-Benz technology.

From what I’ve seen:
All MB from late 80’s to 99 = HHT-WIN
All MB from 2001 to 2009 = DAS
All MB from 2010+ = Xentry

The year 2000 is a weird transition period — some MB made in 1999 but the model year is 2000 will be diagnosed from the 38-pin under the hood and thus use HHT-win. Other MB made in early 2000 and sold as a 2000 model will have the OBD port and the SDS will require the OBD cable to diagnosis….and will use DAS.

And then there are orphan cars, like some SLK models — some 2000-2001 SLK require the 38-pin.

I’ve even seen a 2000 E320 that had both 38-pin and OBD port — I could use either port to conduct a full diagnosis. That was funny.

HHT-WIN supports modules on Mercedes vehicles:
HHT-WIN should be able to read all Modules.
Having said that, for Model Years 1990 – 12/1993, the Roadster Soft Top Module has 30 possible fault codes associated with it.
Whereas for Model Years 1/1994 – 1996, the Roadster Soft Top Module has only 11 possible fault codes associated with it.

IMPORTANT: HHT-WIN is updated to 09.2018 Mercedes Star Diagnostic software disk. Software released in 2017 and 2018 doesn’t come with HTT-WIN. But now, it comes again!

How to connect CGDI MB to w164 EIS on bench

Looking for the wiring diagram that CGDI Prog MB connects to w164 EIS on bench? read this post.

Question:

my cgdi mb can’t connect to w164 EIS on bench – I have got gateway emulator but need to make proper cable for it, could You help me with wiring diagram ? – I know that aliexpress has got nice kit of cables but can’t wait a month or so for delivery.

btw.
I have got XHORSE Power ADAPTER with direct cable for W164, but it doesn’t work with CGDI – I noticed that this adapter doesn’t allow to pass power and data when connected between cgdi and w164 EIS, seems to be useless for CGDI owners for now. That’s why I decided to connect ordinary gateway emulator but need connection diagram to build a cable.

here you go for  wiring diagram that CGDI MB connects to W164

How to erase 35080vp R270 vs. VVDI Prog

Topic: 35080vp read: R270 programmer or VVDI Prog?

What’s the difference between the EPROM chips as listed:
1.35080V
2.35080VP
3.35080V6

Car year difference:
35080 and 35080v6 are different for example 35080 is in bmw until 2004 and 35080v6 is in newer bmw cars

Data erasing difference:
this eeprom has incremental area which cannot be erased by default.
ETL, xprog, upa are able to erase them by using special way.
M35080, M35080_6 can be erased by upa, xprog and a lot more programmers
On M35080V6 and D80D0WQ you need special programmes like ETL or Codiprog or machines like digiprog, enigma to erase them.
In any case incremental area has to be erased before writing.

How to choose a decent programmer for 35080vp erase:
VVDI Prog: works

review 1:
35080 VP is erase full with vvdi programmer. good luck

review 2:
R270 vp series cip eraser need 5-10 hours

vvdi normal eraser
R270: need luck
review 1: 1-2 hours
R270 OK! Sometimes 1-2 hours.

review2: no luck
Left it 3 days with no luck….
Stopped it myself

review 3: not work
R270 wont do the 35080VP but other it do fine an I do not have blank at the moment

review 4: tried twice
R270 do job very well, sometimes need try for 2 times, because reading stop

review 5: change
for change U also can use 080D0WQ eep

review 6: need pcb rework

R270 can work but the board needs rework.
1- Change the power supply to good quality: 12V 1.5A !
2- Change capacitor :
r270-pcb-rework-for-M35080vp-1
3- Change resistor:
r270-pcb-rework-for-M35080vp-2

And to make R270 Auto key programmer better on M35080, please replace the resistor R11 by 200-1K resistor.

r270-pcb-rework-for-M35080vp-3

Other programmers:
Eraser from Tacho.de work in 3 Sek

Tip: 35080 vp eeprom most equipment struggle erasing different results..
dont think 95080 will work in place of 35080 different characteristics of eeprom.
