Smart 450, Carsoft, Key learn ?

Hi .. I wonder if any body might know if a MB carsoft (the type sold on ebay) works with a Smart car ( 2012 vintage) and can put the car into learn mode so it can ... well ... learn a key or two ..

Or in my case re-learn ... its not a problem YET .. but I hear the smart cars sometimes get out of sync and start flashing their indicators a lot instead of unlocking the doors !

I have been told the C3 Star WILL do it .. but was wondering if the Carsoft will as well ..

Many thanks to you for any help or info you may be able to let me have.

(This is for my sister by the way ... I have a real car ... W124 !)

You have a real OLD car! LOL

Well all I have heard about the smart keys is that a DAS-STAR system is required to code the car, and furthermore that all keys need to be present at the recoding in order that the other (presumably working) key doesn't de-synch. So it's a dealer-only situation unless there is a smart indy garage nearby.

Hi .. yes I have a real Mercedes ... when they made them well ( with metal !) .. Thanks

This was the question .. it is ONLY the star system or is there anything else that will do it ? ( Carsoft for example .. as I have heard that name .. )

Not likely, but send your sister to a smart specialist, preferably an independent, to find out.

I don't even really like Mercs, just bought this unreal one (B) for the practical shape and decent fuel consumption. It is our winter beater car, the smart is the summer car, it has never seen salt and never will. Would have bought a Renault Scenic had they been available here.
