Related Question: I don’t understand when we have CGDI tool working all by OBD why lads want the tool to work on the bench???
Answer: For example if car is some further from workshop and you must spent time driving to the car or customer is just TOO far to drive, so then he can sent EIS or drive by himself bringing EIS it with him at workshop. It’s time saver and what if tool will not work via OBD? You will loose many time driving ex. 30 miles x2. If you have on bench, you can work at your place without risk of wasting time. Also calculating psw at the place of car might last 30 minutes, 1 hour in all keys lost? It’s much time to sit in the car + you have to take care of battery charger. If you have on bench, you can drink a coffee or a beer if you want and enjoy the waiting time
Still no tool which can do all merc by OBD anyway…
-> W203 with W209 EZS all key lost, done in the car about 70mn: Successful.
-> Calculation PSW always the first time, never fail.
->Plug USB to computer, software recognise at once. So i take 2 used BE key put in and read. Software say need 12V.
So i plug 12V and read and reset to unused quickly. Will test on bench W209 as key lost later.
CGDI MB tested failure:
CGDI work not on all by OBD
W906 Sprinter don’t work (CGDI Supports W906 only CAN BUS not K-line)
W230 SL55 AMG 2006 don’t work (CGD Supports W230 CAN BUS, you can send EIS and CGDI to factory to add K-line)
Part 3: CGDI MB tokens
This device also work with tokens for password online calculation. what a nice is : free two tokens each day for 6 months.
Feedback: Yesterday test online calculation, very fast, less than minute. And the counter (10) decrease to 9.
Today it become 10 again. So I think for now until 6 months, I can calculate 10 time/day.
Part 4: seems this CGDI MB tool is vvdi clone, or no?
Users already confirm it is not VVDI clone, they open CGDI and say, PCB is complete other than from VVDI and MCU is other than from VVDI !!!
CGDI MB tool update:
After server updated, new software will realease within 2 days with:
[13:43, 7/11/2017] xxxxxx: will update as follows :Calculate erase password, enable password. Erase EIS, enable the password, write EIS data, calculate the current code hopping key track
If you are hesitating for couple of weeks if it’s worth to but this tool, after plenty of positive opinions, will you decide to order CGDI Benz and will make a test as soon as you get it? I don’t intend to push other Member to Buy CGDI MB, but share what it works and not work.
