AUTEL MaxiSYS MS906BT is one of the best Profesional Automotive Diagnostic Tools in the market for technicians and professional mechanics.
In this review, I will provide you with the most details about this Autel Scanner.
Autel Maxisys MS906BT Overview
The Autel Maxisys MS906BT and MaxiSYS MS906 have the same OBD scanning and testing capabilities. They both support reading/clearing codes, live data, actuation tests, ECU coding, and adaptations. Plus they look a whole lot similar in physical appearance.
However, the latter just gets the edge over its predecessor in terms of overall functionality. For instance, it can connect to a car’s OBD system using VCI. That is a wireless connection which basically allows you higher mobility.
There’s the option of adding an inspection camera to the scanner. The camera doesn’t come with the default package though, it is sold separately. Here are more unique features that you will get from the Maxisys MS906BT.
Autel MS906BT Detailed Review
The scanner runs on an open-source Android operating system (OS). It also features a powerful Exynos 6-core processor with amazing multitasking abilities. That is why it is very fast to boot up and run scans/tests.
You can use this scan tool for all OE-level OBD2 diagnostic tasks. That includes reading/erasing codes, live data, freeze frame data, active tests, ECU information, matching, adaptation, data logging, ABS Bleeding, Oil Reset, TPMS Programming, and so much more. The Smart AutoVIN technology makes it so easy to identify a car.
Extensive vehicle coverage
As one of the leading professional automotive diagnostic scanners, the MS906BT is compatible with so many car makes and models. You can use it on over 80 brands of US, EU and Asian-made car models with OBD2 systems.
Advanced user support
The comprehensive help and support you get when using the Maxisys MS906BT is yet another reason why it qualifies as one of the best professional automotive diagnostic scanners.
Fitted with a Wi-Fi module, you can go online to browse for verified diagnostic and repair tips for any vehicle. Even better, the MaxiFix community (used by Autel customers) is a great platform for getting proven fixes and recommended parts.
In case you need further assistance you can reach the manufacturer directly using interactive data logging. They will give you troubleshooting, diagnostic and repair guidance to help you get any job done.
First things first, the MS906BT is well-sized for portability. It measures 25.6 x 16.7 x 7.4 inches and weighs 19.25 pounds. Not so different from a tablet.
As a matter of fact, the 7-inch LED touchscreen will leave you feeling like you are using an ordinary tablet. The 1024 x 768 resolution displays images with unmatched clarity.
Besides that, the built-in lithium-polymer battery allows you up to 14 hours of continuous use without charging. That is a lot more time than you will get in other professional automotive diagnostic scanners.
Finally, the scanner supports USB connection and also features audio and auxiliary connectivity ports.
Who is it built for?
A brief look at the Maxisys MS906BT’s features will automatically tell you it fits among professional automotive diagnostic scanners. The fast speed, multitasking capabilities, database for organizing customer/vehicle data and advanced functionality make this scan tool ideal for professionals who offer auto services.

Q:What is the difference between the “Elite” & “Pro” version?
Autel 908P. The docking station is nice since I can leave it on my toolbox all day. the screen is a million times better than the 908p and it also has more memory. This thing is faster than the 908P in boot up time and also navigation through the menus and connecting to the vehicles. This comes with the newest J2534 which is smaller than the one with the 908P and also has no antenna. Ive used it to code a few cars and also with my Laptop to flash a few different makes of vehicles. You just need to make sure to install the right software. If your a professional this is the tool for you. my snap on versus stays in the toolbox 99% of the time now that I have this.

A:yes, it will work.
Q:Does the mini and the elite scan tools have the same functions besides programming?
A:Hi. No, I actually own both of them. I purchased the mini first. Then realized it’s missing a lot of service functions. The elite allows you to do more things like set adaptations. Plus the elite is a lot faster than the mini. The layout on the elite is much more user-friendly as well. I don’t even use my mini anymore because the elite has more complete diagnostic capabilities.
Q:How often does it need to be updated, and how much do the updates cost?
A:Dear sir, as for the frequency of updating, you can update it once there is update of the car software and vehicle coverage, and you can still use it without updating to the latest version, and it is at least with 2 year free update and the updating fees are 800USD per year!

3. SCN coding importance
1. Question: can clone MB SD C4 support Mercedes online SCN coding?
The answer is yes. Newest MB SD C4 2019.03V / 2018.12 can perform online SCN coding perfectly as long as you have online software account or buy one-time SCN coding service.

1.) After ordering this service, prepare mb sd c4, car, laptop and teamviewer.
2.) Send Teamviewer ID and Password to customer service
3.) The engineer will access to your laptop to authorize SCN coding function.
4.) After finish, the system will display “The SCN coding sequence has been completed successfully”.
2. SCN coding importance
The move to SCN coding was *very* important. There are too many configuration items in every ECU now to have someone set options by hand whenever an ECU is changed, or to understand how changes on one device have to be done on other devices. These cars are really very very complex, and unlike your laptop, if something goes wrong can result in fatalities.
There are software dependancies between different ECUs, and actually loading software into ECUs is now needed regularly – and thus so is up-to-date diagnosis equipment and up-to-date firmware disks too. A simple example is the Audio system. If you update the firmware in the COMAND unit the firmware in every other MOST device needs also to be compatible (if you want it to work reliably) and thus they all need firmware updates. If you change one component then all components need to be updated to be properly compatible.
The latest equipment even now uses ethernet to load firmware into some ECUs (so it takes 20 minutes not 20 hours).
Without SCN coding it would take considerably longer to change any control unit, would result in mistaken configurations, and thus the cost of repair (or re-repair) would go up and up as systems got more complicated. SCN coding basically allows the correct configuration to be loaded into the car.
Imagine what could/would happen if you had to “hand code” the airbag controller after replacing it ? Would you trust all of your airbags to work after the local mechanic had to set all the options correctly ? I certainly would not.
Your comment that “The capital cost of the latest version, plus the monthly subscription, means it is beyond the reach of many smaller independent garages” is just wrong.
If your garage has the skills to deal with the technology (and i’d argue that if they don’t they shouldn’t be doing complex things with the newest vehicles), then it is completely affordable.
If you want to work on older cars, then most independents seem to use a clone machine and use it for limited things.
The EU competition commissioner has previously taken a good look at this market and enforced rules that mean diagnosis equipment (for newer vehicles) is available at sensible prices. This is not true in the rest of the world. Mercedes diagnosis systems in USA are more expensive, and in the far east (and I think Australia) are not available at all to independents.
Sorry to be so contradictory, and in summary, but without SCN coding there would be mis-configurations and un-reliability – possibly dangerous to life – occurring quite regularly. And if you are going to need to work on newer cars, there are very affordable Xentry diagnostics systems – you just need to talk to Mercedes.
