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.

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.
