Thumbs up CarSoft

A guy walked by my house the other day and stopped to talk to me about my car. Seems he has a MB multiplexer and wanted to know if I wanted it. When I asked "how much" he said nothing you can have it. So today he dropped it of. It's actual called "MB Diagnostic Interface" trouble is he has lost the software (carsoft 7.4).

I went on line and from what I can read the downloadable carsoft 7.4 doesn't work right it's from China and maybe a scam. Can anyone tell me if this true and if so is their any good software available on line for this unit.

If you have one of these and it does what it says it does please let me know, or I'll just bin it

Any info would be great.

Assuming your neighbor had a legit copy -- Carsoft (the company) required me to register/login to their web site when I purchased one of their products. And I needed the serial number of the hardware to register. I'd suggest you ask your neighbor if he still has credentials, and if yes, see if you can request replacement software.
