Features Of The Smart Pro Mercedes Solution:
Guided procedure: The Smart Pro guides you step-by-step through the programming procedure. You can read data either from the OBD cable, which is always connected to the vehicle when programming or from the immobilizer unit using the key emulator.
Online connection: The Smart Pro must be connected to the internet and an original key is required to complete the procedure. Data is decrypted from the original key and encrypted into the Ilco Look-Alike Remote key via a cloud solution.
Password retrieval at no cost: The password needed to complete the programming procedure is calculated in the background by the system. Its retrieval requires no additional costs.
No tokens needed: The Mercedes® Solution is always available to customers purchasing the Smart Programmer. No additional tokens are required.
What does ADS2298 software do?
The ADS2298 software is designed to program slot keys compatible with Mercedes® models 1996 - 2014. The software is automatically activated when the Smart Programmer ADC260, required for programming these keys, is connected to the Smart Pro.
A maximum of 8 keys can be programmed with this solution - you don’t have to delete existing keys to add new ones. The software shows the unused slots among the 8 keys available on a Mercedes vehicle to avoid overwriting an existing working key.
With ADS2298 software you will have a choice of standard OBD or emulator key procedure to ensure maximum vehicle coverage.
The security password is calculated in the background by the server - the Smart Pro must be connected to the internet. The 4-button slot key by Ilco POD-BENZ-4B1 is required for this software and offers the same infrared technology used by original keys. This software does not use tokens. Online connection is required.
The software is included for free with the purchase of the ADC260 Mercedes Smart Programmer device. Support for all keys lost situations is coming soon.
