What do you think about that Autel Maxisys Elite?

2-1

Thinking about trading my modis ultra for an Autel Maxisys Elite. What do you think about that?

Reason being the shop I work at has a Very Edge and with my Modis it’s kind of redundant. Sometimes the SO won’t do what I need so I’m thinking the Autel might fill some of those holes. And if the Autel won’t do it I can use the shop Verus. Plus the updates are cheaper and I’d like to be able to print from the scanner without having to transfer to my computer first.

Review by Moderator:

I’m glad you brought this up, as I’ve had the exact same thought. I think the Autel would definitely fill some gaps in the Snap-On coverage. The wireless adapter is always nice. The two years of free updates is tempting. :ohmy: That’s about $2,000 worth of software on the Snap-On truck, if you’re buying every update.

What scanner do you have Tyler? I think I’ve about talked myself out of switching brands. You really kinda need both. SO seems to have more reliable PIDs and if it lists a test or function, it works. Not always the case with Autel. I’m gonna price it out with AESwave anyway, but I think it’s around $3500 but comes with 2 years of updates.

SO rep told me yesterday they had a buy 17.4 and get 18.2 free. I said that’s not really a deal is it. He looked at me funny and I said “well 18.2 is about to come out” It comes out in April.lol .

I have a Modis Ultra, and the shop has an Autel Scan Tool MaxiSys. It’s like you said, you really need to have both. :angry: Too many gaps in the SO coverage to rely on it exclusively, and I can’t stand how the Autel displays data. :silly: Autel is far better with Euro makes, as well, IMO.

I see the Elite going for around $2400 on OBD2TOOL? On other retailers, anyway. I figure AESwave would be close.

The Modis has 17.2 now, and I’m seriously considering letting it lapse.

What different between autel maxisys elite diagnostic tool maxisys 908cv

1.How well does Autel Maxisys Elite reflash? I do alot of dodge, chevrolet and ford diesel diagnoscatics, does it work well with these?

Answered by John R
you will need a laptop hooked through the j2534 pass through module to program gm ford and dodge but you have to pay the subscription fee to do your programming.it works well on most vehicles bi directional controls it does power balance also for ford and gm not sure on dodge.

2.Yes im ready to purchasee is this the us or the chinese version ive heard conflicting reports about differences in repair and support policies

Answered by Ron Jon:
It’s the US version and I to had the same concerns but bought it. I’ve had to call the tech support one time and I had very good results. It is Us support. Trust me you won’t regret this purchase. I can almost do anything the dealers can do . I’ve already paid for mine since I can program now

Answered by Herbert Brown:
The US version. All operations and functions I have used on the Elite were English.
Good product, I have already used the Autel Maxisys Elite on 5 different cars from 3 different manufacturers (BMW, Nissan and Cadillac). Was able to simplify my troubleshooting with this tool.
Well worth the purchase if you plan on working on multiple cars

3.What different between autel maxisys elite diagnostic tool maxisys 908cv

Dear sir, the ms908cv can diagnose and perform ecu programming and coding on 24V heavy duty trucks, the maxisys elite is for gasoline and 12V vehicles , please be informed.

4.What make of vehicles can this scanner work on?

sir, Autel Scanner can do it on most cars of America, Europe and Asia, but if you want to make confirmation just tell us the car model, year and VIN, we will have a check and tell u the result.

5.Do you get free updates

you get updates for a year after that you can pay autel for the updates but are not required for the scanner to keep working. I have a Maxisys Pro for about 2 years and after the 1 year updates were over It still works like a charm. on the updates that they add like language support fix bugs or add tests or functions that were missing.

6.Does is have live data and live graphing for abs and crank/cam sensors etc.

Sure, of course, the most powerful function is it can do ECU coding and programming on BWM,BENZ, and many other powerful special function

Depending on the Vehicle I have been able to see the live data and Graphs for both ABS and cam/crank sensors. The only vehicle I have had a problem with is a Nissan GTR. But for all other vehicles I have had no problems.

Autel MaxiSYS Elite Automotive Diagnostic & ECU Coding Programming System Reviews

Review by Paul Young

I had a 3 years experience of using Maxisys series products in my workshop, including maxisys pro, maxisys mini, and maxisys maxidas ds708, but this one still does not disappoint me. It only takes 15 seconds to boot up, the touch screen is very smooth, the diagnosic process is very fast, helps me save a lot of time.

Review by emmawho

EXTREMELY Nice! Fast Shipping! Very nice easy to work with Seller! As for the Product….
Easy to use and operate the Maxisys Elite is the best scan tool on the market today. I personally own Launch, Bosch, and Snap On. While they all have their pros and cons I believe the Autel Maxisys Elite to be the best all around tool, and with two years of free update is certainly the best value for the money.

A great tool and deal Review by Unified

Of course more features are always appreciated,We have OEM tools for the brands that we carry, but we needed a tool that can diagnose the various used cars that we service.

Review by hello2019

I had a 3 year old Maxisys. It earned its cost many times over. It finally had a problem. I am sending it out for repair and purchased the Elite to replace it. It is the same but much smoother and more polished and the software functionality is much better. The Autel Scanner screen resolution is double and it actually makes quite a difference. This is an early review but the improvements were worth the review.

Review by 78hoot

This product is expensive for me.I even doubt that if it worth to buy.And the truth is I did a good choice.There are three things I want to say about this product.The first is the design of it.the touch feels good,(I don’t know the material about it).legible screen also a good side I like.It also can be put up,so I can put it on the car instead of carring it and walking around.Maybe it shows I am a lazybones….uhhhhhhh….

The other side,about the functions,programming working works really good on my Benz,the update keeps the softeware can be follow development of the car’s system.The advice from cloud data,all of them are from technicals or drivers,gives me some thinking when I have met problems about my car.I just told my favourite functions now,all of the functions I can not write it down here…
last thing I want to say.The service.This product has many functions,so sometimes I don’t know what can I do or what the benefits that one of the functions has.These problems just a part of all the problem I met.(I am not good at use precision electronic tools).So I have called the seller many times.With the good manner and speed,they solved all of my problems.Have bought products from Amazon these years,but the seller who shows good manners and solves the problem carefully like this,I rarely met.

all of the things I got from obd2tool,(product,service,and etc.)is a good experience for me.I write some words about the experience of this product,even though these things are my opinions,but wish there will be some helps for yours,if you want buy a good car test product for cars you owned.
