remote start on W222

Is there an easy way to add remote start to my MY2015 W222. Don't want to waste money on Mbrace subscription.

I don't think MBrace will do it anyway. Not for a 2015 anyway.

A 2007 Cadillac does auto start. What’s the problem here.

No easy way to do it. There is a company that can turn the stock key into an auto start, but they cannot do it for the W222 cars.

I'm a dealer for MidCity and have been bugging them for this for a while now and they just told me yesterday they are close to cracking the code. So, I hope it should be avail sooner than later.

I see it's been almost a year since you posted that MidCity may be getting close to cracking the code. Any luck yet? I have a 2015 S550 that I'd like to add remote start to.

THIS IS THE RESPONSE TO ME EMAIL FROM MID CITY 1/9/2019Good Afternoon,Unfortunately no update yet. The engineer is going back into R&D in the next month or two for the S class and C class. We should hopefully know something in the middle of the year if it will work.Sincerely, Michael Diamond
