Built in Garage door opener and rolling code garage doors

Anyone who ordered the built in garage door opener for their SLK and who has a rolling code garage door (like me) will find it does not work and Mercedes are not much help.

Their garage door operators only work with standard 433MHZ garage door openers so anyone with a more modern "rolling code" garage door opener (ie the code changes every time it is pressed for security) will find it will not work.

There is a solution however. You need to order a Universal receiver from

and add this to your garage door motor. It then works fine. Costs about 45 Euros.

I have brand new rolling code openers(genie) and found it bit of a pain in the ass to do(running up and down a ladder to press the learn button), but it worked. It did however, take a try or two to get all three garage doors programmed but in the end, no problem. They work.
I never really tried to test the range but my driveway is at least 60 feet from the garage and it opens fine, so range is not a problem. My wife has an E-class and hers works fine too from that range. I wonder if there is any sort of adjustment that can be made to increase the range for those that seem to having a problem.
