How to change W222 speed meter and temperature from F to C

I have a Mercedes-Benz w222 manufactured in the USA. I want to convert the radio and speed meter and temperature from F to C.

It means change speed meter from mph to Km/h , and command (Head Unit) from US to ECE , it will via xentry?

I am new at this field. Any one know how to change it be xentry or vediamo ?
I have SD Connect C5 and  Dell D630 Star Diagnostic Tool With Vediamo V5.00.05.

Ps. here is the ECU chassis number :WDDUG8CB9EA009893

Solution by experienced MB technician:

ECU version is required so can get the steps. They vary from car to another.

According to your chassis Number, this is the ECU details:

Diagversion: IC222_E007_2_Muster

Steps Via Vediamo
1- go to CBF FILE (IC222)
2- Select ECU Variant (IC222_E007_2_Muster)
3- Tab Coding then Variant Coding
4 Coding window will open up

For the temperature C Scroll down o Anzeigeeinheit Temperatur (Unit_Temp) and Choose C.

All other Functions are in the same window

Steps Via Xentry
After reading the car go to the ECU Called IC- Instrument Cluster (A1)
Then choose Author data then click on alle_Codierungen. on the right side choose whatever coding you want to change. It should do if the Star Diagnose function is available.

How to use SD connect C4 + Xentry/DAS on Macbook Pro

I’m running Xentry/DAS 2015.12 (not OpenShell) on my MacBook Pro together with SD Connect C4 via LAN cable and VMware. Works without problems.
Need bridged networking in VMware. And adjust the network settings/IP addresses.

VMware:

Use VMware Fusion Professional and and allocate enough resources to the VM.

Mac hardware specification:

MacBook Pro, Core i7, 16GB RAM, 512 SSD, 15″ 1GbE, SuperDrive, Mid-2012

Virtualization:

That is the magic of virtualization. If you can locate a copy of Star Diagnosis that was intended for the IBM ThinkPad T30 running Windows NT 4.0 Workstation, you could easily install Windows NT 4.0 in a virtual machine and replicate that environment with near native performance. If you prefer to use a Windows XP-based version, that is easily done as well, up to and including Windows 10 1709 or Windows Server 2016. Almost any computer you purchase now will not have drivers available for Windows XP, so either an old PC such as a Dell D630/D830 will allow you to install Windows XP natively and make it work, but virualization takes the headache out of that. OS X us built on UNIX, so it is a very stable host OS and can run nearly any version of Windows was a guest with easy, stability and performance. The only think I would refrain from doing at this point in time, is if you are using OS X 10.13 High Sierra, do not use APFS just yet. It still is not as stable IMO as HFS+. You certainly don’t want to introduce system instability when programming a control module!

Battery:
The battery life is good when running Windows in a VM, as OS X has excellent power management. Allocate at 2 cores to the Windows VM, and if using an XP-based version, 2048GB of RAM should be sufficient.

In detail…How to setup Xentry/DAS on a Mac OS X

It is very straight forward. I elect to not use the automated installation of Windows, as it automatically configures the partition sizes, formats them, etc. Instead, do a custom installation and select your ISO. It will then determine the contents of the OS ISO and select your low-level hardware components automatically, such as CD-ROM bus, HDD bus, etc.

For the network cable, it defaults to NAT, so it shares the IP of OS X, but cannot receive unsolicited network traffic due to the nature of NAT. You can select Bridged, and it can have an IP on the same subnet as OS X.

I think I would prefer to install my installation from scratch, as the pre-built images that are distributed have an unknown product key, and also could contain malware or other unwanted applications.

If you are installing the XP version of DAS/Xentry, specify your virtual disk to be about 120GB, and when Windows XP asks you to specify your partition size, instead of pressing Enter and allowing it to consume the disk specify 20GB and quick format as NTFS. Create the remaining three partitions in Disk Management after XP completes installation.

Also, the first thing you will want to do is install VMware Tools after XP installs. If you want to install all available updates for Windows XP, and download WSUS Offiline version 9.2.3 and it will get your all of the available updates that were released when XP reached EOL.

I have used 12.2015, but if I still used it, I would revert back a few months to avoid the hard-coded timebomb that was implemented at the end of 2015.

Result:

I have used this setup for many years for control module programming and SCN coding with no issues from OBD2TOOL.

How to use 2017.12 MB Star C5 hard disk and how to update Star C5

MB STAR C5 moveable hard disk is used for containing Xentry DAS, please do not use it as a computer system hard disk.

39-1

Here two tips to follow.

Option 1. you use C5 disk on your own computer. Tip: advice you not rework it or dismantle it and plug it to the computer to modify the data.

Option 2. you buy the extra computer together with MB Star C5, then you are advised to prepare one blank hard disk for system installation because the computer you bought doesn’t come with hard disk.

39-2

How to update DoIP Xentry Connect C5?

Usually you are required to send back the Benz diagnostic tool MB Star C5 hard disk for update unless the engineers can make out the updating software for download.

Attach one picture which shows the hard disk location in the C5 mux.

How to SD connect C4 LAN & WiFi Configuration

Topic: How to configure SD connect C4 LAN & WiFi to solve DAS fault (1.1)-1.501.9500.

Tool: a clone SD Connect C4

Software: 2011/3 Xentry

Status: I’ve started up SDNC to see if the connection is okay, and it turns green when I connect the multiplexer via LAN, but when I try the wifi it stays red. It can also read out some data from the multiplexer so I am assuming the the multiplexer is working fine too

Error: If I connect it to a car, DAS keeps popping up the (1.1)-1.501.9500 error (as I understand that must be some kind of communication problem). The car’s wiring is fine as KTS 520 can communicate with it.

Photos:

See the ceaser test post results

24-1

see the error message DAS gives

24-2

SDConnect toolkit says that my mux is available, but when I click on the button in the middle I get an error message, with an error code 750. That button is supposed to be for searching for multiplexers. This kind of gives me the impression that something isn’t quite working right :S
In the toolkit admin, it displays a serial number, says the mux is available. See in the attachments.

24-3 24-4 24-5 24-6 24-7

Solution:

It’s working!!! (At least it’s working via LAN, have not tried WLAN yet.)

I can’t believe it :O

Changed value in cal.ini to PART_W (to be exact, didn’t need to change it, it was PART_W, just left it that way :P).

As for the rest of the instructions, I haven’t been able to follow them exactly. I also got a vid with instructions and it’s a little bit different (I’ll post it here if anyone needs though). For example the LAN IP address is 172.29.127.112, but it seems to be working that way. Also I haven’t been able to configure the “road WLAN”, because it doesn’t matter what I enter into the “key” field, it keeps saying that the key cannot be divided by 2 and therefore it is not hexadecimal

Hope this isn’t going to hinder my chances of using WLAN…

But I’m going to find out in a few anyway.

EDIT: Also tried with LAN IP: 172.29.127.119, it doesn’t make a difference. MB SD Connect Compact 4 works with both IP-s.

Damn….I clicked on the “Delivery condition” button in the SDconnect toolkit, and now I cannot turn on the WLAN on SDconnect. I think it wrote something into the MUX’s software :S

The LAN connection still works though, so the MUX is not blocked yet luckily….

Then go to the drop down tab and change it from PRESENT to NOT PRESENT, and click F3.
After that, turn off the car, with the doors closed.
Wait 1-2 mins and start the car back up (no more ABC codes and no white or red lights).
