Key Programming Software ADS2298 & Smart Programmer ADC260 for programming Mercedes* keys using the Smart Pro.

Advanced Diagnostics is pleased to announce the release of the ADS2298 key programming software compatible with Mercedes® models produced from 1996 to 2014.

What does the software do?
The software is designed to program slot keys compatible with Mercedes® models. 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 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. It is free software with the purchase of the ADC260 Mercedes Smart Programmer device.

Support for all keys lost situations is coming soon.
