Part 1. Add only key “with key“
-> W220 first test, Read Blank Key, Read Write Erase key OK, read EZS and Password from Key…works
-> Tested on W212
Read EZS —> OBD work Fine
Calulating PW from EZS —> Work fine Online Server
Key Calculating —> v041 & v051 Work fine online Server
-> Mercedes W212 2010 e250 Petrol Automatic works
-> W203 2004 spare key making:
Total time about 13 minute when begining to programming new key. Read pass NEC key by IR and calculate PSW
Key still working after get PSW.
Done in car.
-> Mercedes W221 2010 Facelift S600 V12 works
-> 2007 w221 from Japan: Add key on bench
First try i use vvdi
But 2 time upload also failed cannot get pass
1 time upload successful
So i was change device Cgdi from vvdi
Good and very fast 10 min got pass
-> Just did some minutes ago ML350 W164 2006
Read EZS, add key, write BE key all done in 17mn.
Really fast and i’m happy with the first try on car.
Use late software 184.108.40.206
I just plug in the OBD, put key and turn ignition ON and read.
After this step, CGDI will ask only put in EZS and in CGDI. Just all
PSW query is more longer than 209, about 12mn to get PSW.
-> W221 2008 with key v57 from Japan:
Add key success after 30mn, get PSW in the 2è upload.
He said VVDI MB or Diagspeed need usual 1 or 2H for that.
Part 2. Program new key “without key” when all keys lost
-> test all key lost on w164, need gateway.
-> Tested w212 ALL KEY LOST !!! In car, done by OBD
Work realy realy good!
W212 is from 2012
Read ezs About 30mins
Read eis info
Paste key password
Then key calculation
Very nice CGDI MB tool
-> CGDI Prog work good to do W207 W204 lost keys on bench, use with VVDI cable report by:
Alessandro silva w204 all key lost ok 100 percent.
W204 get data: About hour
PSW W204: 11 minute all key lost in bench with VVDI cable
had VVDI MB and CGDI, CGDI is faster and no problem to get Password:
Test with my W209 545 31 08 on bench as add key: 15mn all done
Trying all key lost, failed. But a friend do with W209 545 05 08 success PSW by IR without gateway
Related Question: I don’t understand when we have CGDI tool working all by OBD why lads want the tool to work on the bench???
Answer: For example if car is some further from workshop and you must spent time driving to the car or customer is just TOO far to drive, so then he can sent EIS or drive by himself bringing EIS it with him at workshop. It’s time saver and what if tool will not work via OBD? You will loose many time driving ex. 30 miles x2. If you have on bench, you can work at your place without risk of wasting time. Also calculating psw at the place of car might last 30 minutes, 1 hour in all keys lost? It’s much time to sit in the car + you have to take care of battery charger. If you have on bench, you can drink a coffee or a beer if you want and enjoy the waiting time
Still no tool which can do all merc by OBD anyway…
-> W203 with W209 EZS all key lost, done in the car about 70mn: Successful.
-> Calculation PSW always the first time, never fail.
CGDI MB tested failure:
CGDI work not on all by OBD
W906 Sprinter don’t work (CGDI Supports W906 only CAN BUS not K-line)
W230 SL55 AMG 2006 don’t work (CGD Supports W230 CAN BUS, you can send EIS and CGDI to factory to add K-line)
Part 3: CGDI MB tokens
This device also work with tokens for password online calculation. what a nice is : free two tokens each day.
Part 4: seems this CGDI MB tool is vvdi clone, or no?
Users already confirm it is not VVDI clone, they open CGDI and say, PCB is complete other than from VVDI and MCU is other than from VVDI !!!
If you are hesitating for couple of weeks if it’s worth to but this tool, after plenty of positive opinions, will you decide to order CGDI Benz and will make a test as soon as you get it? I don’t intend to push other Member to Buy CGDI MB, but share what it works and not work.
Then, where to order one CGDI mb tool?
CGDI is a new tool, so no copy so far, there are not only one seller supply this tool, but I think I am happy with www.obdii365.com, the CGDI Benz key programmer is available here:
Click on “Read EIS data” then “Computer password”
Click on “Copy key without key” then “Collect Data”.
Prepare to collect data, please wait…
Please insert the simulation key into the lock in 30 seconds.

Click on “Query password”
Wait for 2 minutes, query password succeed.
Click on “Lock (EIS)” then CGDI MB display password, copy it.
