Looking for a tool to pair MB headsets with the Rear Entertainment System,  factory installed in a 2014 GL350. The car came to us used without the headsets. We have acquired the correct part numbered set. Will any other tool support this pairing other than the MB Star?


Why don't you try using an external adaptor?


There are tons of them available online and I think they might be able to do the trick. Have you tried any of those?

Not really sure what you mean by an external adapter, adapter for what? My understanding is the headsets and car need to be paired together by the dealer service department using their MB Star Diagnostic system. Apparently headset are apparently registered to the car as in flashing.  This is much like key FOBs. Prior to 2013 this process of pairing the headsets did not require special equipment. 2013 and after now requires the dealer equipment.  I`m just looking for an alternative tool rather than the dealer and the MB Star system.  BB

I would look at Autel Maxidas 808. Also maybe you can find a member with Star diagnostics in your area. Where are you located?
