I mean to buy a mb star.But I don't know to choose which one.
If C4 is the replacement for C3 why C4 is cheaper than C3.
Mb star c4 there only cost about $400.But the C3 there may cost 600 more.
Does C4 support MB up to 2011?
What are the main differences between them.
What C3 can do which can't be done by C4 and what C4 can do which C3 can't be done.
Does someone have a operation guide which you can forward to me to read more about it.
And if you know more about them,you can reply me.
Thank you!
:confused:

C4 is no replacement of C3 but a cheaper version Chinese made from the C3 and named it to C4 to fool buyers, and it worked for years and still many have problems figuring out what it is about.

You can find the same circuit boards from a cheap C3 clone too, so be careful with those.

It is the SDConnect tool that official workshops use today, sometimes this is called C4 when used with a Compact4 tablet.

Cheap C3 clones and C4 clones are sold at $300, you can save a lot if you buy one. And even better, since these fail so often, you can save a few hundred dollars soon again. ;)

As long as each tool works, they do mostly all the same as long as the SW is the same.

O I See now. Thank you very much.
So I think it is better to buy a C3
