DAS/Xentry cheap alternative

Hi
I installed today xentry/das with vas5054a ( not sd connect c4 ) device 55 ( a chap from California ), and we tested on a c230.
It has the full functionality of my 500 sd connect c4, take 2 days but what a great result.

Moderator addition-->Per a PM I sent re equipment needed (at post 13), reply received: You need a vas5054 oki chip, a laptop with windows 10 or 7 64x and i can do the rest remotely.

For 55 hardware + installation you can have a fully das/xentry system on any laptop, no brainer.

Actually is 58 just order one now.
That is the hardware is a pass-thru device instead of sd connect c4 and then you need the software. The newer the car the better.
Next week I will receive my device, install all software and do extend testing gon my 2 cars.
Again if an old c230 can be read ( all modules, air bags ezs module ) plus the ability to do all the testing and actual startup on modules.

Just finished a 1h session ( in California ) playing with this and very impressed with the cheap obd tool. So far seems to see/do exactly like sd connect c4.
