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.

Who Autel Maxisys MS906 Scanner Is For

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

The price of the product is quite high and even small vehicle garages will find it hard to afford.

It is intended for mid-scale or large-scale service providers.

It can diagnose tens of vehicles per hour depending on your activeness.

I admit MaxiSYS 906 is costly but comparing to the value it provides; I must say it a reasonably priced product. Moreover, don’t consider it as an expense but an investment as it can cut the time for closing a deal by half. That only means more business for you but with lesser stress.

17-1

Conclusion

Conclusively speaking, Autel MaxiSYS MS906 Automotive Diagnostic Scanner happens to be the perfect device for significant repairing houses out there. I strongly recommend the device for its high-quality performance standards. Also remember the other versions after it, the ms906bt and ms906st.

I doubt that you will ever love to use any other device if you experience this one. I am personally a fan of the device and the Autel Brand itself.

Moreover, it is backed up by the prestige of the Autel Brand. Autel is a great manufacturer who always strives for presenting the best and eliminating the difficulties of its customers. In case, you encounter with some problems for using the Autel scanner or if it doesn’t function well, although that’s pretty rare, an Autel representative will help you out and resolve your issues. Just contact their customer support.

Autel MK906 VS Autel MS906 VS Autel MS908P on basic info, manual, reviews

Autel MK906 (New) and Autel MaxiSYS MS906 share the same hardware specifications, the same functions (OBD diagnostics, coding and service) on a wide range of car brands. Actually they are the same tools but have different name because they are sold by different seller.

Autel Maxisys Pro MS908P is the most powerful and can perform OBD diagnosis, coding, programming & service functions. Being an older Autel tool, its hardware specification is comparatively lower.

Conclusion:

To do OBD diagnostic, coding and service, advise Autel MaxiSYS MS906 or Autel MaxiCOM MK906, they are the same tools but have different name because they are sold by different seller.

To do OBD diagnostic, programming and coding, advise Autel MaxiSYS MS908P
