I use MB STAR (with DEV mode) for a couple of weeks. It's been really good so far and has been able to do a number of things so far.
1). To enable cornering lights:
Body -> SAM-F -> CONTROL UNIT ADAPT -> READ CODING AND CHANGE...
Set Turning Lamps to PRESENT
2). To enable tank content remaining (gallons left)
Inf & Comm -> Instr. Custer -> Diag. to Plant Spec. -> Control Unit Adapt. -> Variant Coding -> Read Coding and change....
Set TANKINFO in REICHWEITENBILD to ENABLE
- You then need to reset the "kombiinstrument" (reboot)
Reset in DEV: Steuergeraet Resetten (PowerON-Modus) (FN_Reset_SG_Power_ON)
I've written this up after having done this using DAS Simulator.
***Some reading led me to find some sites say to also enable: Menu RR: Reichweite/Tankinfo
But mine works without so I didn't enable this second one...
3). To enable flashing brake lights on emergency braking (missing on my SAM)
Control Units -> Body -> Rear SAM -> Dev. Data -> Control Unit Adapt. -> Control Unit Adapt. (Variant Coding)
Scroll to: Parameter Notbremsung, in the submenu you will have two more options: select zugelassen (enable)
Think the first choice is flashing brake and second is hazard lights, enable one or the other or both...
4). Enable Date in the Cluster (I've yet to do this one)
Control Units -> Inf. & Comms. -> IC - Instr. cluster -> Diag. to plant spec -> Control unit adapt. -> Control unit adapt. ( Variant coding ) -> Variantkodierung Werkseinstellungen: Set "Datumsanzeige Grundbildebene" to aktiv. (active)
- Then reboot the cluster
Our Super Mb star C3 comes with Develop Mode (top version)
Some super mb star from other manufacturer do not have Dev. Mode
MB SD Connect Compact 4 does contain Dev. Mode, but not function as good as Super MB Star
