Advanced Diagnostics has released its ADS2298 key-programming software compatible with Mercedes-Benz models produced from 1996 to 2014.
The software is designed to program slot keys compatible with Mercedes models. The software is activated automatically when the Smart Programmer ADC260, required for programming these keys, is connected to the Smart Pro.
A maximum of eight keys can be programmed. You don’t have to delete existing keys to add new ones. The security password is calculated in the background by the server, and the Smart Pro must be connected to the internet. The four-button slot key by Ilco POD-BENZ-4B1 is required for this software and provides the same infrared technology used by original keys.
This software doesn’t use tokens. It’s free with the purchase of the ADC260 Mercedes Smart Programmer device. Support for all-keys-lost situations is coming soon, the company says.
