Autel Maxisys MS906BT Professional Car Diagnostic Tool (Upgraded Version of MS906)

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

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

Android OS

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.

Superb construction

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.

No doubt, its not a gadget to keep at home and show-off. Its
designed for the professionals and repairing shops. More precisely, for

Autel maxisys elite FAQ

autel-elite-4

Question: Does the Maxisys Elite scanner comes with troubleshooting feature?
Answer: Yes, it does. The Autel maxisys elite diagnostic scanner can diagnose vehicles, read and clear DTCs. Also, it can do ECU coding and programming. As a matter of fact, the maxisys elite scanner is one of the most advanced tools on the market with a wide range of outstanding features. It can used on the different car make and performs all OBD2 functions.

Question: Can I use this Autel Scanner to calibrate seat sensors?
Answer: Of course, you can. This Autel maxisys elite scanner can do on most cars. But before you buy it, get in touch with Autel and find out if it’s compatible with your car make or model. Some users have reported compatibility problems and you don’t want to be one of them.

Question: How important is the freeze-frame feature in a diagnostic scanner?
Answer: This is a standard feature built into all OBD2 systems that normally takes a snapshot of data when an emissions-related diagnostic trouble code sets. By default, there are some scanners that may only retrieve one frame of captured data on demand. But some manufacturers build in expanded freeze-frame data capture routines that show more than a standard frame. In order to pull this expanded data, it normally needs a scanner with expanded freeze-frame retrieval capabilities or an original equipment diagnostic scanner.

Xtool PS90, Foxwell GT80 plus, Autel MS908P, Launch V

Let’s talk about what I know about XTOOL PS90, Foxwell GT80 plus, Autel MS908P, Launch X431 V 8″. What special features, what they can do, is it good investment etc.

1.The reason to vote Xtool PS90:

Xtool-PS90
OK list:

– In English or German, it’s really great and there are no problems with it.
– I am using xtool ps90 is ok but the translation is poor even. Counts do the things that have a list of memory programmer works generally recommend.
– As for the PS90, I can update only in Polish and English.

I made injection programming in my Espace (2012) and everything went quickly and smoothly.

– In the VAG group in previous softkeys, it was possible to enter the option of byte options and program everything literally (as in VCDS).
– Generally, shortly after the purchase, the PS90 performed beautifully with the first versions of the softs.
– Ford quick reset is done, Nissan 20digit,Hyundai,Kia bypass are working.
– ps90 reset toyota new immobilisers using h-type chips incase all keys are lost, no 16 minute wait.

The claimed Xtool PS90 vehicle coverage

Fail list:
In Jaguar XJL (2014) I tried to calibrate the air suspension, unfortunately without success. (I did it with the device for 127PLN in 2 minutes).

I was told by a UK selkercthst the x100 pro pad 2 only covers 4 diagnostic systems whereas the ps90 covers more.

XTOOL X100 PAD2 function coverage: Eeprom, mileage, immobizier, obd2 scanner, and more

2.The reason to vote Autel ms908p:

ms908p

In any case, if the price difference is small, I would prefer Autel, bigger company and support, etc.

Autel Maxisys Pro MS908P reviews:

Quick processor speed and boot-up time:

It doesn’t seem to make a difference what model of car I hook it up to

The MaxiSYS (MS908) is the fastest (scan) tool I’ve ever used.”

It saves us time on every job we use it on with its quick boot-up time, ability to look at live data and ability to use bi-directional controls while not being bound by a cord.

Easy to use because of the manual included:

The MS908 system comes with the manual, which was loaded onto a CD. So it’s easy to use, there is little need for the manual.

It also included 12V and 120V chargers, a USB cable, non-OBD adapters, a strap/handle and a screen cleaning cloth.
According to both reviewers, the MS908 is easy to use. Even right out of the box, minimal setup was involved.

MS908 system good at update:

Once the scan tool arrived in the shop, the only i need to do is to register the device on Autel’s website in order to perform updates. If you choose to not update it, you can use it out of the box within five minutes.

Autel is really good about updating their tools. It’s a tool to check for updates like once a week, because as soon as Autel comes up with solutions, they put them on the internet for our users.It is kind of cumbersome to pick and choose the updates through the Autel Scanner, without having to hook it up to a computer, as the tool is fully Wi-Fi capable. It would be nice to set a profile of vehicles that you work on, or a sort by vehicles that you need…available updates on all vehicle makes and models, including European vehicles not serviced in the U.S.

I’ve updated mine on the road. It saves me a ton of time.

Advanced & function-able:

This MS908 offers 100-percent access on the anti-theft security systems, it allows me to send reports via Wi-Fi to another computer, it comes pre-loaded with direct links to repair info (AllData, Identifix, Mitchell 1, iATN, etc.) and that it stores vehicle histories and complete customer history, which can be retrieved through VIN auto-identification.

And I have used the tool for many advanced functions, which include performing diagnostics and resets on many vehicle makes and models and even programming keys. Have used a lot of OE scan tools before. Autel lays out data the same way OE scan tools are laid out. I am familiar with this setup logic, that if technicians are not familiar with a factory menu layout, this may be difficult for some users.
Perfect in auto key programming/module coding:

I used Autel MS908to program keys on several vehicle makes including Ford, Dodge, Nissan and VW. And also used it to diagnose a faulty PCM in a 2010 Dodge Ram and faulty headlight modules on 11 5 Series BMWs. After replacing the new module, it had to be coded and he also had to run reference for the adaptive headlights. The MaxiSYS performed flawlessly.

3.The reason to vote Launch X431

x431-v-8-inch

The price of all the same is still heard that the launch is cool and also at a similar price.

Launch X431 V 8″ tablet scanner for all makes should be a good investment. It can do more but sells as cheap as $759.

All what you want to know about Launch X431 V 8″ tablet scanner is here
incl. vehicle coverage, update, how to operate, comparison with other similar scanners.

In conclusion:
All of the above universal diagnostic scan tools are worth to own. But it doesn’t include all, any more tools you are using and would like to recommend, please email at: Sales@obd2tool.com telling your test reports and advice.

The review for the MS-906

I wanted to write this review to hopefully help some others out there. One thing that I really wanted the ability to do is program keys. I could not find any good hard information that this was supposed to program keys. Because of this, I was leaning towards the older DS-708. I decided to give Autel US a call and gather some information.

2-1

They told me that the Autel MaxiSYS MS906 was the replacement for the DS-708, but the DS-708 was end of life. They said if you buy a used one, and something happens to the card, then it will essentially be a brick if you don’t have a backup. They also told me that the MS-906 would not program keys and that I had to get the pro version that was quite a bit more expensive. This did not make sense to me because if the MS-906 replaced the DS-708, it should do everything that the DS-708 does.

I ended up messaging the seller on OBD2TOOL. and he told me that it would not as well. I figured I would order it and I could always return it. Turns out, the MS-906 DOES program keys! I’m very impressed with the scanner. Comparing it to an older Snap-On Solus, it blows it out of the water! The graphing is nice, has a TON of features!

I am very happy with my purchase. Your 1 year worth of updates starts from the time that you register the Autel Scanner. The problem is, you HAVE to register it before you can use it all. Therefore if your plan was like mine and to use it for 2 years or so, then register it to get the free year worth of updates, then that will NOT work.
