SDconnect C4 Reviews: the best tools for programming Mercedes

This is the latest SD connect c4 reviews

Topic: the best tools for programming Mercedes

I want to buying a device for programming the modules of mercedes which one is safe and updatable?


I use C4 with Xentry works good for me.

First you must buy MB SD C4 or MB STAR C5 if you want coding and programming Mercedes Benz
And you also need other tool which can renew usd control modules
Like avdi Simon tech Mercedes instrument programmer vvd2

I use xentry 09.2016 works great, you can find premade acronis images and installation version here, just search for Xentry.
It’s good for trouble shooting and coding.
In some cases online scn coding requires a MB server connection.
You find members here that offer scn coding via team viewer.
Vediamo is also available I have not used it a lot but it lets you code and program on a deeper level.

Both sd connect c4 and c5 work good in coding and programming Mercedes Benz
but as for china clones, i prefer sd connect c4, c5 just in c4 casing

MB SD Connect C5 vs. SD Connect C4: The software of SD Connect c5 is the same as that of SDconnect c4, but the hardware of SD C5 is better and stable than SD C4:
1. The host communication connection end USES from design, to avoid inadvertently fall in the normal use of the communication port to connect and communication failure, etc.
2. DC 12 v power supply design/host upgrades to avoid the battery installation/battery voltage instability/host can’t enter the shutdown state, etc, caused by the motherboard and rapid aging of the battery.
3. The host CPU radiator surface and perfectly fit alloy shell, good heat dissipation effect. Equipment running smoothly, don’t crash.
4. The host USES the tamper clasp, should to avoid fragile warranty sticker damage caused by the warranty disputes.
5. Host wi-fi protected the upgrade for PC plastic shell, solid quality does not affect the wi-fi signal.
6. OBD main telecommunication lines connected to the host end upgraded to VGA15 industrial-grade connector.
7. Network upgrade for gigabit connections/pure copper wire core/double layer aluminum foil/woven mesh/silica insulation material. Gigabit communication Against interference/pulling open circuit / / fracture in low temperature.


Benz diagnostic tool SD connect c4 wins! It works good in basic obd2 diagnostics, SCN coding, ECU/key programming online or offline on Mercedes cars, truck and Smart as well.

MB Star Diagnostic Tool series

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

MB Star diagnostic hardware:

MB STAR series now includes: WIFI MB SD Connect Compact 4 system, Super MB STAR C3 diagnostic system, MB Star C3 multiplexers (best quality, best price and C3 pro with 7 cables) and MB STAR Compact 4 system.


All Star diagnostic system will do  Mercedes Benz 1989~up to now Car, Bus, Trucks, Sprint, Smart  (expect SP45-C best price MB STAR C3)

MB Star 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.

Star diagnosis software:

All MB STAR Diagnostic 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


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)

All MB STAR system are look similar, are they all different?

All MB STAR system are look similar (Super MB STAR C3, MB STAR C3. SD Connect C4), are they all different?

And following are the obd2tool customer’s clear & precise answers:
a All STAR system shares the basic diagnostic software, like DAS, XENTRY, WIS, ST Finder etc. Super has much more software than other star diagnostic systems. Super MB SATR C3 has Develc Mode, Smart TAN code etc software etc that other Star tools does not have.
b.Super MB STAR C3 multiplexer can be updated online. MB Star C4 SD Connect and C3 Star do not support update.
c.MB SD Connect 4 is the newer and most respected Star tool for Mercedes models.
d.Best price MB SATR C3 version cannot support Benz trucks. Other Star multiplexers work both cars& trucks.

The VT55 triggers all newly mounted TPMS sensors and turns the warning light off. It decodes the sensor data and ensures that the correct tire pressure monitoring sensor is being read and isn?t a radio frequency transmission from a key fob or other sensor. The process allows the user to display the data on screen but also to transfer it to a PC and print out results outlining which sensor is faulty and why.The ATEQ VT55 OBDII TPMS Diagnostic Tool displays sensor ID, pressure, battery status, temperature, accelerometer and more.

Cars in normal operation, the automobile electronic control system signal input and output (voltage or current) will change regularly with a certain range; electronic control circuit when the obd2 scan tool is abnormal and beyond the normal range of variation, and this anomaly does not disappear at a certain time (three continuous stroke) within, ECU determines that a failure of this part, the fault indicator lamp is lit while the fault monitor in the form of code stored in the internal RAM ( RandomAccessMemory: Random Access Memory), is the fault code stored in the maintenance can be read by the fault indicator lights or OBD2 scanner.

If the fault is no longer present, the monitor after three consecutive times to the relevant signal is not received, the command displays the fault light goes out. Fault indicator light turns off after engine warm cycle about 40 times, the fault code will automatically be removed from memory.

Because the United States and Europe, using two different emission regulations, so the second-generation on-board diagnostic system OBD II, EOBD two forms. U.S. implementation of OBD II, and the use of European countries to implement emission regulations EOBD system. From the source, the American OBD II system implemented earlier and more stringent standards. EPA regulations in 1996 after the production of cars and light trucks (load at 6.5t or less) of electronically controlled systems require configuration OBD II system and start all car manufacturers cars and light trucks in the January 1, 2000 are you must configure the OBD II system. In 1998, Canada implemented OBD II system.

Europe began the gradual implementation from 2000 EOBD system in 2001 all new production of cars in Europe (Load 2.5t or less) is limited to the gasoline engine configuration EOBD system, and the Professional Diagnostic Tools for diesel engine cars to the 2004 mandatory EOBD system configuration. In the relevant provisions of the Central European emissions regulations no OBD II our current standard has been promulgated in, but with the implementation of the Euro Ⅲ standard, EOBD use certainly on the agenda.
