Why will you choose Xentry connect C5
23-1-1-1-1
Original Plan 1:1 Copy Mercedes Wifi Xentry Connect C5 multiplexer For Mercedes Car And Trucks.
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 Star Diagnosis Compact4 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 you buy Mercedes Benz DoIP Xentry Connect C5 MB Star C5 Plus Panasonic CF52 Laptop from OBD2TOOL , We will install and activate for you ready to use. What’s more, this package offer saves you money than buying them alone.
After all, there are many reasons to choose Xentry C5 Connect. The main thing is one: since 2015, the diagnostic multiplexer Xentry Connect C5 becomes the only one used at dealerships.
Thus, by purchasing this equipment, you will not lag behind the progress. Each client of of yours, seeing with his own eyes ,that you are in your work using 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

MB Star diagnosis C3 and MB SD C4

The difference between MB Star diagnosis C3 and MB SD C4 is vey complicated, so i collected some data about them to let you know. Here we take one of my customers’ case as an example to share with you about how to find a right way to deal with MB STAR diagnostic system.

MB - Star - diagnosis - C3 - and - MB - SD - C4-1

Hello, I am new to STAR diagnosis field. I have been considering all of these questions:

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

2. Is the MB STAR diagnostic tool can operate on a Virtual machine? The shops sell Star tools with T30 and Dell 630 are running on Virtual Machine?

3. Can we order a MB STAR (C3 or SD C4) multiplexer + cables and install DAS/XENTRY alone (ie not buy everything HDD)?

4. What is the difference between Mercedes Benz Diagnostic Tool DAS and Xentry software?

That’s a lot of questions, but it is difficult to find clear and precise answers. So I leave it to you! I’m interested in explanations, information, links etc, in French or English, Thanks!!
And following are the vipprogrammer.com customer’s clear & precise answers:
MB - Star - diagnosis - C3 - and - MB - SD - C4-2

First.
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 Develop 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 SD C4 and MB STAR C3 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.

Second. Yes, MB STAR external software HDD can be loaded on Virtual Machine. If you get T30 or Dell D630 format HDD, you can only loaded it on T30 or Dell D630 laptop. If you buy external HDD, you can install it on Virtual Machine. But internal HDD runs faster than external HDD.

Third. If you need to buy Star Multiplexer without HDD, then go for this: Best quality MB STAR C3 without software HDD. The better suggestion is that you get the MB SD Connectand Dell D630 laptop which software in pre-installed, you did not need to install software by yourself.

Forth. MB STAR DAS: the automatically Diagnosis Assistance System
Xentry: New software released by Benz Company to diagnose new cars.

DAS in old software

XENTRY is newer software
The Star diagnostic tool it self determines which software you are going to use. That means STAR diagnosis will read your vehicle and enter into Xentry first, if your vehicle has to be done via DAS, it will go into DAS, otherwise it will stay in XENTRY)

Multiplexer STAR Compact 3 (Auto-Link Blue STAR) realizes all the functions of official factory BENZ Star2000: reading out and erasing trouble code; reading the real-time data of sensor and actuator; coding and programming. It applies the latest high-tech central gateway system of car model 221/211 and 203 with software version updated to October of 2006, can enter all the Benz cars, such as autobus truck, saloon car, sports car, smart car and so on.

The overall ways to keep the cost of car ownership low

The total money that you spend on car insurance, maintenance, repair and vehicle ownership in its service lifetime is not less than that you hand to the car dealership at its purchase, and these expenses continue to rise. Take fuel as an example, its price reached record high in 2008 and best obd2 scanner foretell a possible continuing rise in the future. More and more people find it hard to sustain their car ownerships. However, there’s always something called solution. Below are some simple and easy ways that everyone can have a try to reduce costs with one’s car.

* Get slick to reduce maintenance costs and to save fuel.

Upgrading to one of today’s modern high performance motor oils can make a meaningful improvement to your car’s fuel economy and engine life. For instance, independent studies have documented that Royal Purple motor oil improves fuel economy by as much as 5 percent and significantly reduces engine wear. Using high performance synthetic motor oil, as opposed to conventional oils also allows for more miles between oil changes, reducing maintenance costs and the amount of time spent on maintenance. You’ll pay a little more for premium motor oil but the savings in fuel and reduced maintenance costs more than make up for the higher price.

* Reduce your insurance costs by doing your homework.

One of the simplest ways to reduce insurance cost is simply to shop around. Prices vary from company to company, so it pays to do your homework. Get at least three price quotes. You can call companies directly or access information on the Internet. Your state’s insurance regulator may also provide price comparisons. Other ways to reduce insurance costs can be found by visiting the U.S. Insurance Information Institute’s Web site.

* Mind the air to save money on fuel.

The U.S. Energy Department reports that under-inflated tires can increase fuel consumption by up to 3 percent. One Benz diagnostic tool  estimates that 50 to 80 percent of the tires rolling on U.S. roads are under inflated. Astonishingly, we could save up to 2 billion gallons of gas each year simply by properly inflating our tires.

Secondly, a clogged air filter can increase fuel consumption by as much as 10 percent. Air filters keep impurities from damaging the interior of the engine, so replacing dirty filters will save gas and protect your engine.

Auto Scanner Tools can save hundreds of dollars a year on automotive expenses without buying a new car or changing lifestyle. All it takes is a little time and research, and the good sense to choose better performing products.
