We have some exciting news!
OSCA can now proudly announce our latest developments on DoIP(Diagnostics over IP). Back in March, we rolled out our first release of DiOP updates. However, we can now announce that we have the capacity to support DoIP communication with JLR and Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
The Mercedes C-Class (W206) and S-Class (W223) are DoIP-only vehicles, which for you means that they no longer support diagnostics over the CAN-bus. Great news, you can now code them with the latest DiOP release from OSCA.
All OSCA 2 tools are updated automatically.
The update process will have little to no effect on you using your OSCA 2 tool, with only a slight delay when you first start up your device after the update.
The update is already online, and all tools will be automatically updated to the latest version as soon as they connect to the OSCA network.
Select the communication profiles “Mercedes DoIP” or “JLR DoIP.”
For all the vehicles that support DoIP communication, we have added the required profile to the system. However, as previously mentioned, for the Mercedes vehicles, this will be the only communication profile available for this model as CAN-bus communication is no longer supported.
However, for JLR, there will be an optional profile that you can select after opening a ticket with OSCA, similar to Volvo DoIP currently.
Due to some technical issues, we slightly delayed providing support for JLR vehicles. But exciting news for JLR vehicles produced from 2021 onward, OSCA can support JLR vehicles that have migrated to a newer version of DoIP.
The process of involving multiple gateway nodes meant that we had to adapt our software to support this feature. Which is now live and implemented.
As with all other releases and updates, OSCA goes through thorough testing to ensure that the updates are ready to release. This release works as expected; however, we have noticed that with significant module updates, programming and flashing procedures (20MB+), they are not always completed successfully.
Therefore, we strongly advise refraining from performing diagnostics procedures requiring large module updates until further notice. OSCA are working hard to release an improvement for this soon.
To improve the OSCA service overall, we work on this alongside developing DoIP support for other brands, such as BMW and VAG.
