Cobra Connex ICD31

Cobra Connex is a sophisticated vehicle tracking system with a 24 hour 

Secure Operating Centre (SOC) theft monitoring and stolen vehicle 

recovery service.

Should your car be stolen, the SOC will instantly be able to pinpoint the 

exact location of your car using the latest GPS and GSM technology. 

Police liaison is conducted nationally and in Sabah and Sarawak by 

the SOC.

Once  located,  the  police  will  know  the  speed  at  which  your  car  is 

travelling,  the  road  it’s  on  and  even  the  direction  of  travel  -  vital 

information to help them track and recover your car without engaging 

in a potentially dangerous high-speed pursuit. 

In short, Cobra Connex gives you the best chance of ensuring your 

Mercedes remains your Mercedes.


To reduce the possibility of the car being broken into or stolen, the 

following precautions should always be taken when leaving the car 



Close all windows. The smallest gap could present an opportunity  

  to a thief. Take all valuables with you, or lock them in the glove box 

  or boot compartment. 

•  Never leave the driver card in the car, refer to information under   

  the heading  “Driver card” on page 4.

•  If towing, transporting or servicing the car, refer to information under 

  the heading “Transportation and service procedures” on page 5.

•  Ensure all doors and boot compartment are locked and the anti-theft 

  alarm system is armed.

•  Always park in an area where there is GSM network coverage - you 

  can verify this with your mobile phone.  

•  At night, park in a well illuminated area.

Cobra Connex ICD31

2 driver cards are supplied with the system. 

The driver card should always be carried separately from the car keys 

e.g. in your pocket, wallet or purse.

Cobra Connex recognises you as the authorised driver by detecting 

your unique driver card when you are within approximately 1 - 5 meters 

from your car. The ADR LED will blink when the driver card is out of 

range and goes off when the driver card is detected. 

If your vehicle is driven without the driver card, vehicle tracking and 

recovery procedure is started automatically. You will receive a theft 

alert on your mobile phone followed by a call from the SOC – and if 

theft is confirmed, the SOC will initiate stolen vehicle recovery (SVR) 

procedure  on  your  car  i.e.  liaising  with  the  police  and  continuously 

updating it’s location for them to recover and return your car to you as 

quickly as possible.

Driver card 

The driver card has to be switched on for it to work. To switch on, briefly 

press the button on the driver card until the LED starts to blink.

To switch the driver card off to conserve the battery – for example if it 

is to be stored and not used, press and hold the driver card button for 

around 8 seconds until the LED goes off. 

Automatic Driver Recognition (ADR) overview

As many as 4 driver cards

 can be used with the system at any one 

time. If additional driver card is required, contact any Cycle and Carriage 

Bintang Dealer.

To reduce the risk of car theft, lost driver card should immediately be reported 

to Connex Customer Service where the lost card will be excluded from the 

system. You will need to purchase a new driver card to replace the lost one.



If the car is driven with the ADR LED still blinking, vehicle tracking and 

recovery procedure is automatically started and you will receive an SMS 

theft alert followed by a call from the SOC.



The driver card should not be left in the car as this will compromise the ADR 

protection function. In case of valet parking or servicing at a service dealer, 

keep the driver card with you. 






 leave the driver card in the car. 

The driver card should always be carried with you. If it is left in the car, 

the ADR function is compromised and in case of a theft by stealing or 

duplicating your car keys, the system will not be able to generate theft 


Driving the car 

With your unique driver card with you, the ADR LED should be off 

when you turn or press the ignition on to start the car. If the ADR LED 

is still blinking, this means your driver card has not been detected by 

the system.  

The detection of your driver card should happen within approximately 

1-5 meters of you approaching the car. If it is still blinking, briefly press 

the button on the driver card to manually switch the ADR LED off before 

starting the car.

To turn OFF, press the button on the 

card for at least 8 seconds or until 

the LED is off

LED on the card is 

not blinking

Turn ON by pressing the 

button on the card once

generating false theft alerts.
