Mercedes Benz Star C3C4C5 Buying Guide


Mercedes benz star scanner is a very popular auto scanner in the market. However,Many customer are confused to choose when they want to buy one, because there is four version of mb star:Mercedes Benz star c3,benz star c4, Benz Star SD Connect Compact 4 C4 and super MB benz star C5.

So now,i will summarize their similarity and difference,hope it will helpful for customers to choose.


1.Benz star C3/C4 and MB star sd connect c4,Super MB Star c5 use same software.

V2019.3 MB SD Connect Compact C4 Software WIN7 500GB HDD DELL D630:


V2019.3 256GB SSD Software for MB SD C4/MB SD C5 MB Star DELL D630:


2.For the hardware, Benz star C3/C4/C5 is same function in diagnosing.


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 convience 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 Harddisk.That means when customer want to update,they need to send back harddisk 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 inconvience.

Under this suitation,Super mb benz star c5 is release, it is can update through super mb star official web directly, which will be much convience 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 convience than Benz star C3/C4/c5.

Besides, Professional Diagnostic Tools mercedes star diagnostic 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.

So in all,each version have its advantage,just see which one is most suitable and interested you.

Possible to get Piwis 3 program work with Piwis interface tester 2

This answer for the question whether Piwis 3 diagnostic program can work with Piwis interface tester II

It may be an interesting subject, I’m sure there is some information about this out here.
The Piwis 2 interface is a lot more robust piece of equipment, compared to the cheesy and flimsy looking and feeling interface produced by Actia for Piwis 3.
Originally designed for the VW ODIS system,  the VAS 6154 VCI is quite the service needy piece. [Breaks easily] not a hard comparison to make.
Porsche went cheap on this VCI for Piwis 3. [my humble opinion, way below Porsche standard!]

There is a service from Poland and Ukraine [If I remember correctly] that can make the Samtec based Piwis 2 VCI,  to work with Piwis 3, unfortunately their charges are just as much and frankly cost prohibitive as the New Piwis 3 VCI.  2-3-4 thousand  dollars for these VCIs is simply not reasonable for small  operators. They will come down in price just like the Chinese VCIs did for all manufacturers as the markets get saturated and folks are not buying them as eagerly as in the beginning of the Piwis 3 phad.
They will get as much money as the market bares. [as much as people are willing to pay]

Your more pointed answers will not come in this tread Ibi.
This is CarsFan’s money making tread, he will not volunteer any information, but if U start your own tread, U may be more likely to find out stuff.

Regards, Albert.

Lexia 3 full chip vs Diagbox vs Peugeot Planet PP2000

What the difference is among lexia 3 full chip, Diagbox and Peugeot Planet PP2000, which would be a good idea for a total newbie in car diagnostics software that lexia 3 full chip cable required.

Both Diagbox and PP2000 are used to connect to the car’s ECU and carry out diagnostics and manage settings. Which is a better software, however?

lexia 3 full chip: Citroen
Planet: Peugeot
Diagbox: Citroen & Peugeot

lexia 3 full chip3 – hardware
lexia 3 full chip – Software for Citroen
Planet – Software for Peugeot
Diagbox – Front end which contains variations of both of the above

Diagbox is the only one which is still updated.

The hardware is currently on Revision C.

Diagbox: newer, PP2000: quicker

PP2000 and Diagbox are roughly the same thing , Diagbox being the newer software ,

PP2000 is a quicker software but will become obsolete over the next few years as Peugeot will stop using it this year ,

no point in getting PP2000 then having to change to Diagbox

Peugeot Planet: easier and faster

I have planet and also being a newbie installed planet then diagbox they both worked fine though diagbox was a lot slower (you have to start diagbox then choose planet off the option list) so basically if its just for use on your own car then using planet on its own is easier and faster though if your going to attempt using the interface on other vehicles may as well install diagbox with planet and lexia 3 full chip

lexia 3 full chip + PP200 = Diagbox

lexia 3 full chip is for citreon

planet pp2000 is for peugeot

put both programmes into one software = diagbox

if your going to buy it you might asswell get diagbox which most new interfaces come with anyway.

Both lexia 3 full chip & PP2000 available within Diagbox

They are the same…. the discs supplied usually contain PP2000 and Diagbox on one disc (PP2000 is also available within the Diagbox installation), and lexia 3 full chip for Citroens on the other. lexia 3 full chip is also available within Diagbox.

So if you find an interface with rev C, the software discs will contain everything you need and more.

PP2000 on 32-bit, Diagbox on 64-bit

Planet will only run on 32-bit. Diagbox will run on 64-bit, but when you try to call Planet through Diagbox it will crash because it must have 32-bit.

What I do is install VMWare Player (free). Using that, create a virtual machine XP SP3 32-bit (you will need the disk and key). Then install Planet into that. Works well. Sounds very techy, but it is surprisingly easy, because VMWare is so well documented. When installing Planet, do not plug the lexia 3 full chip interface in to the PC until prompted.

Planet & Diagbox are software lexia 3 full chip cable required

The lexia 3 full chip is the cable required to use the software. Only the cable.

To use the cable you will need software as well, Peugeot Planet and Diagbox are the 2 pieces of software to choose from.

Diagbox is much newer software that supports even the latest cars. However I prefer the interface of Peugeot Planet, much easier not to get lost in there.

Generally when you buy a Mileage Correction lexia 3 full chip software will be included on a disk. As to whether it is genuine or not, you should check with the seller before purchase.
