VCX SE allows firmware update via vx manager. It is compatible with both Xentry Passthru (works as j2534 passthru) and Xentry Openshell version. It is also a J2534 passthru tool.
VXDIAG allows adding other brands software license Techstream, HDS, GDS2, IDS, ISTA etc into the device. MB SD C4 DoIP is for Mercedes only.
VCX SE works without any configuration which is much easier than C4.
VCX SE connects via USB, WiFi, Type C USB, LAN and Donet. VCX SE is easiest to setup and best for the WiFi. With the vcx se the pc simply connects to it, as soon as it sees the wifi. it handles all the ip adress setup on it’s own with the dhcp. It works very fast via type C connection as well. MB SD C4 does not support DoNET remote diagnosis.
MB SD C4 plus supports Vediamo, HHT-WIN software, vcx se software does not. For Vediamo, you will need a special configuration. C4 does better in old Mercedes kline and trucks than vcx se.
The vcx is a passthru device works great if you don’t need hhtwin for pre 2002 cars. vcx se is more versatile than a dedicated device.
