Other difference… all feedback from users!
PCB: VVDI MB TOOL wins!
Original: VVDI MB TOOL wins!
VVDI MB is original device of which have made a copy and that is CGDI MB
Vehicle coverage: VVDI MB TOOL wins!
Vvdi mb tool support more vehicles than cgdi mb prog
Old EIS: CGDI MB programmer wins!
I think, you should buy Vvdi prog too, because the are some eis and ecu’s that you cant do with MB Tool independently. For example some w210 eis or Sprinter 906. I have both, MB Tool and prog. If I had to buy some tool again, I would think about Simone Touch, but its more expensive.
But if you have a CGDI MB, you have a chance to program a new key through OBD. All done with a tool. That’s the reason why I bought it.
ESL: VVDI MB TOOL wins!
vvdi mb can renew esl, cgdi cannot
Token number: VVDI MB TOOL wins!
vvdi mb tool can buy tokens alone, it is more suitable for those customers who need more tokens one day, cgdi mb prog do not offer tokens alone, you can get two tokens for free every day, it is enough for personal usage.
Token cost: CGDI MB wins!
CGDI until 6 months after purchase, you have 2 free by days. After 2 free by days. If you need more, you can buy:
free token for the first half a year, then 70 usd for half a year
You can calculate password with tokens twice a day if you have a cgdi or cg pro.
But you can have four times if you have both cgdi and cg pro. (I’ve sent the serial number to vxdas.com team and they helped make them a combination. Now i have 4 tokens to use every day)
So, in the token VVDI md tool is very more expensive
It’s 30 usd per time
And 380 usd without limitation for a year
Tech support: VVDI MB TOOL wins!
CGDI is poor support and no has yet many functions like VVDI, that is a fact.
But CGDI is young, came from a small company without reputation…..
Also in the fact, token is fore more cheaper, calculate PSW very fast and alway first time from server.
CGDI is 1/3 VVDi mb tool price, and VVDI mb is out from almost more than 2 years. So for me, let it grow up and time will tell if this is good tool or not.
In conclusion, compared with other mercedes key programmer, vvdi mb tool is the best choice for you now.
