Mercedes Benz Star diagnosis tool DOIP device test report

Thursday, August 9, 2018 6:40:34 AM America/Los_Angeles

Hi, everyone

this is Steven GA from xcar360.

This year there are some new diagnostic tool for mercedes said support doip on market . today i make all test on 7 types mercedes diagnostic tools.

1.Mercedes star C4 SD CONNNECT XCAR360 100925 version

This one is one of the most stable quality in china, price around 480usd . it can support K and CAN and truck 24v ,

but it can't support DOIP . and also no DOIP cable .


2. Mercedes Star C4 sdconnect DOIP device

Recently one factory made a SDCONNECT DOIP device here , they add a DOIP PCB on the normal C4 . looks like the original doip device . price about $600

But after test . we found it can't support DOIP protocol . it support K and CAN protocol , but it didn't support DOIP like they claimed . and it also didn't with a DOIP diagnostic cable .

so this one is same as normal one now . worthless

3.Mercedes Star C5 cheap one

this one price about 500usd .

this one is a joke . it use cheap C4 PCB , then insert it to a C5 case.

it work on K and CAN, but the factory quality not good, easy broken on 24 truck and not stable.

so this one also worthless.


4.Mercedes Star diagnosis Xentry connect C5 real one

this one price about 1100usd .

this one is a 1:1 clone from original xentry VCI , the SSD software is in device, and with license in machine .

it complete support K-line CAN and DOIP protocol . The booting speed a little slow , but diagnostic speed is quick.

it can update use original DVD , and install all ADDONS , it support all mercedes until now .and can use in any laptop .

so , this is worth to buy until now . price is 1100usd and include license update 2year .

 mercede xentry connect doip


this is a original device from ACTIA the price about 1000euro . it support CAN and DOIP , but didn't support K-line .

diagnostic speed is quickly .


6.Xentry VCI

this is a Original Device . but very expensive , perfect support K + CAN + DOIP protocol . Diagnostic speed very quickly.

only problem , price higher.


This is a new device price $600. we test on some car W205 and old ,support K + CAN + DOIP protocol .Diagnostic speed not very quickly . but ok, not sure can completely support all car K+CAN + DOIP .
the problem of this device is 
(1) , maybe not can full compatible for all mercedes like original device
(2) , update , this can't update by yourself .
it made by J2534 and a little like VAS 6154 VXDIAG version .
if driver not update on time , it may can't use on new software .
and this one update by HDD .
2 year update 4times update fee about 400usd .
it is ok to buy now .

vxdiag mercede vci

so, after we test

we give suggestion here .

1. if not need DOIP functions , SD CONNECT XCAR360 100925 version recommend to buy.

2. if you want a DOIP device and you can easy get update DVD, we suggest buy xentry connect C5 . update easy and orginal functions .

3. If you didn't have budget , and you still want a doip, you can buy vxdiag vci .

How to solve SDconnect tookit error SD CONNECT toolkit didn't work

Saturday, November 18, 2017 2:07:09 AM America/Los_Angeles

Here are customer solutions of what to do if SD connect Toolkit COM-Server has stopped functioning.


Some folks inform tried and solved it this way. (i have not tried this)

1. Open Taskmanager an Kill all Processes of SDconnect Toolkit(Tkserver.exeTktray.exe).
2. Go to DTS install folder and find the folder with the Tkserver.exe in it.
3. Delete this folder.
4. Install SDconnect toolkit from here:!rgExUb7Z

encryption key: fQAtu6sTOfHFhfQi5ZObBJr742wGa7_CXuLY33JLhfc

  1. Go to original SDconnect Path (C:\Program Files (x86)\Mercedes-Benz\SDconnect Toolkit\
    6. Copy filesToolkit.ini + SDVersion.dll
    7. Paste Toolkit.ini in C:\ProgramData\I+ME ACTIA\Toolkit\ and SDVersion.dllin Install-Directory of the new SDconnect Toolkit.
    8. Start SDconnect Toolkit from Startmenu (the SDconnect folder in Root of “All Programs”, not the one in “Mercedes-Benz” folder)

but i have another way that seems to work.
have not tried on vehicle yet but at least i get no more errors.

my base is a win 7 x64 system.
i have a clean and working installation of xentry xdos 05.2016.
but it should work with other Xentry versions too.

Now you install DTS Monaco and the Daimler Addon.
In my case it was Monaco 8.3.12 and the “setup_addon_dag.exe”.
Now restart the PC. You notice that the sdconnect toolkit does not start anymore.
Delete the “Start SDconnect Server” shortcut from the autostart folder.
Now restart the pc again or open the taskmanager and kill the process TkTray.exeand TkServer.exe.

Now you browse to “C:\Program Files (x86)\Mercedes-Benz\SDConnect toolkit\”.
Copy everything that is in that folder. (should be 6 subfolders, bin, doc, selftest and the update folders)

Now browse to “C:\Program Files (x86)\Softing\Diagnostic Tool Set 8\8.03\Interfaces\DCDI_DPduApi\eCOM_Toolkit”.
Delete everything that is in this folder.
Now paste the folders/files you copied from the Mercedes folder here.

Open the “bin” folder and copy the toolkit.ini file.
Or go back to the Mercedes folder and copy the toolkit.ini file from there.
Paste and replace this file into “C:\ProgramData\I+ME ACTIA\Toolkit”
(Note, the C:\ProgramData folder:

It is a hidden folderon Win7. I do not talk about c:\program files\ or c:\program files (x86)\ (name of these folders might be different if your windows is not english)
(you can get the right folder by opening the explorer and typing in the adress bar %programdata%)

With Win XP i guess the right folder could be something like “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data”.
You could also try to just search for the toolkit.ini file on the whole C:\ drive. Should give you the location as well.)

Now restart the pc again.

In my case, deleting the autostart prevents the toolkit to start from the mercedes folder.
thanks to monaco the toolkit from the softing/interfaces/ecom folder will now start.
by replacing the toolkit in that folder we trick the system into starting a copy of the original toolkit.
my toolkit now starts without an error. i can open it again and everything seems to work. before it did not start at all or i got error messages.

Some Solution for WiTech connection issues - need to register device

Thursday, August 31, 2017 6:19:27 AM America/Los_Angeles

This is solution from forum user about  WiTech connection issues - need to register device

Note as of 8-22-17 , .
Chrysler issued an update in July that effected many owners of the original Mopar MicroPod2 and the clones. I'm one of the people effected. So I started messing around trying this and trying that to see if I could get it working again as I need it to scan my own family members vehicle. 
So I started looking into MicroPod2 issues and maybe its a firmware problem or something along that nature. Well the Micropod Model ID does cause an issue because its now on a blacklist unless you register your device. 
When playing around I found a string in one of the files that I deleted and I was able to connect to my vehicle again....
So using the latest 17.04.27 Witech I removed this one line of code and I get an error once connected to my car about the whole Witech 2.0/1.0 crap.....
So I removed the Witech 17.04.27 software and jumped backwards to Witech 16.05.15. I went back in and removed the same line of code and reconnected to my car. I would get an error message of "*********" . So I ignored it and "X"'d out the window. Clicked "Next" so the next screen shows up and I selected "Offline" for usage. 
Now keep in mind this whole time I am "NOT" connected to the internet!!!
Using Witech 16.05.15 I was able to connect to my vehicle without any issues at all! Now someone may know a fix around the error window that pops up and that's great, I'm hoping someone figures that out 

Anyways, in the added pictures you will see the error screen that pops up when using Witech 17.04.27 and then the actual connection to my vehicle when using Witech 16.05.15. (pictures are now removed)
Now I have tested various versions of Witech to see if I can make it to the connection screen to where it wants to connect to the car. Granted I was "NOT" at my car when the software was trying to connect as I tried 8 different versions of Witech in the past 3 1/2 hours and I did not want to go back and forth trying each one. It's also currently 2:41am while I'm typing this....
Now the code I changed was in the Witech software itself. I went to the file:
"PM me for the information"
Then edited the file titled "********"
There is a line in that code about half way down in a section titled "*****". I simply deleted the code for *************....
You may need an editor to do this, but my "NotePad" allowed me to edit it. Here is what I deleted:

"As of 8-19-17 the info is no longer posted"

Now your "value" may be different, I don't know as I'm not a programmer....
Once I deleted that section using the notepad, I saved the file. Closed everything out and restarted the witech server and the witech software and I was able to connect to my car. 
Remember, my internet was SHUT OFF while doing this 
Hope this helps you out, and maybe there will be more people chiming in on this topic

(as of 8-20-17)
Using MicroPod2 Clone
PC used: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit with SP1
Also used MacBook Pro running Parallels with Win7
Witech verified to connect: Vs 16.01.18 / 16.04.10 / 16.05.15 / 17.01.18 / 17.03.10/17.04.27

witech softwarewitech 16.04.10

How to register BMW New Battery by INPA or Ediabas

Thursday, August 10, 2017 8:39:24 AM America/Los_Angeles

The battery needs to be registered when you replace it on BMW 7 series (5 series, 6 series etc). Here is the customer solution to show you how to register new battery with INPA or Ediabas toolset32.

—-Xcar360 Automotive diagnostic tool , diagnostic software

Credits to bimmerfest BMW experts.

Note: This is just for REGISTERING THE SAME SIZE BATTERY. You are at your risk.

First with BMW INPA software:


With Ediabas toolset32:


first go to file then click F3 then select POW_E65.prg

in the second pic double click the command (steuern_batterietausch_registrieren) just ones and you are done .

remember this is for registering the same size battery not for retrofitting another size , if you want to retrofit 90AGM battery you need to register the battery with DIS/ISTA because DIS/ISTA well register only 90AGM battery , if you want to retrofit another battery size you have to use NCS expert.

FAQ about register BMW battery:
Q: We always used inpa. Should i use both or registering with inpa is enough
A: registering ones is enough , some ppl have problem with INPA registering there battery so i put toolset32 .

Q: what is this battery thing ( registration ) with what the car computer
So if you take out the battery and say get a sears diehard gold . what happens can someone
explain . will another battery work ( doesn’t it just see a 12 volt power supply

A:You need AGM battery. It must be registered. Otherwise it wont charge properly. Our cars are very sensitive. If your battery is low or doesn’t get charged properly u will get different errors and faults. Your car need to know how it needs to charge battery thats why u need to register it. You can go to dealer, or u can set up bmw tools and do it yourself.

Q: Where do i get the software and cables to register my battery ?
A: BMW ICOM Next or BMW ICOM A2 with ISTA and engineering software INPA, Ediabas, Ncs expert etc. Check here BMW ICOM NEXT A+B+C with V2017.05 Software ISTA-D 4.05.20
ISTA-P etc. You can also download ista torrent on forums and use with INPA K+DCAN cable. (You are at your risk. Better using ICOM emulator). If you are not good using software programmers, you can buy Foxwell NT510 BMW multi-system scanner that can be directly plugged into the OBD II port. It is located by the drivers door Behind a little flap near the lower hinge area. It is more expensive but can do more things and is specifically programmed for BMW/Mini.

The error above should be with INPA (using INPA ) I get “group file: D_POW.SYS-0012: Identification error” with no space between D and : but the system is making it an emoticon.

A:You might need to Update your Daten files . Better buy newer software package.
