Many members write that xentry passthru is okay with VAS5054A. Read the post and get 64 bit driver for VAS5054A:
i myself use Dell latitude win7x64 PRO, chipsoft mid (usd131) and pro (usd218) as my adventure with xentry passthru. i chose chipsoft because it can handle 24v (max 35v). i bought the famous VAS5054A (usd 60) too but don’t touch it yet because it can’t handle 24v (max 17v). i guess chipsoft lite (usd89) is worth to try too.
PKW (passenger car & van 12v)
i test it at a glance with xentry and das, all are easy, direct and good result.
xentry: w212, w204
das: sprinter, w220, w221
Truck (Actros 2,3), Axor & Bus OHXBC, OC500 24v
i try with unsupported DAS vehicles in xentry passthru (Lkw, Bus k-line).
I add the folders that is not installed with xentry passthru and take it from xdos with same release.
i am help by Denis (owner and developer of chipsoft). He is a savant.
He helps update the drivers several time to help me to achieve what i want.
The first driver when i get, it does not work with xentry/das and vediamo for mercedes vehicles 24v.
– Actros: All ecu are okay but not GM. Still under research but i am already boring right now.
– Axor MB INA (all k-line ecu): Great working now
– Bus OHXBC, OC500 (all k-line ecu): at last, all are great now
– device insulation is not good. i already burn one mid and one pro.
i don’t think it is good for a long term use for 24v unless Denis want to add that protection.
Comparing with partD (C3) and SDConnect
– the price (almost the same) –
– fully compatibility with all mb vehicles —
– Reliability with 24v —
– Size & weight +++++
– Support other Brands +++
Update: collected tests from fellows.. also works
Have used clone VAS5054 w/OKI on 211/203/204 Body styles can be viewed, things can be activated, error codes was able to clear, adaptation was able to be completed, VIN was read, cars was identified
I am testing Xentry Passthru 12.2017 with VAS5054 on C203 2003. everything works without problem. on line k too.
2006 CLS55 AMG, 2007 R Class, 2008 Sprinter:
I used my VAS5054a with the 2006 Mercedes CLS55 AMG, 2007 R Class, 2008 Sprinter, all in DAS. Everything worked except the ignition detection.
C 250 2014
I used VAS5054a with C 250 2014 using Xentry, everything works fine, no sense of ignition, but Xentry gives you a check box to manually select.
2006 for Mercedes:
I have not tried more than 2006 for Mercedes, but I’m sure the limit is in software / drivers.
