Autel IM608 chip programming: ( done withXP400 SWITCH)

*   PC Supported
*   MCU / EEPROM Chip Read / Write
*   ECU Reading / Writing
*   MC9S12 Encrypted Chip Read / Write
*   Key Reading / Writing
*   Mercedes Infrared Key Reading / Writing
*   Finding the Control Frequency
*   IC Card Reading / Writing

To sum up,

Autel IM608 key programming function is MUCH better than Autel Maxisys series.
IM608 comes with a XP400 programmer to read/write MCU, EEPROM Chip, IC card, key frequency etc. But Maxisys does not.
Maxisys MS908P could program the ECU of Benz and BMW, and have ECU coding function.
IM608 only could ECU code (ECU coding), could not program ECU of cars.
Both tools have trust and sustainability. Thus, if you are focus on key programming, go for IM608 instead.

If you need a tool for diagnosis only, MS908 is a decent machine at a better price.

Autel MS908P J2534 Programming Reviews

Confirmed to do programming with J2534 module

the Autel Maxisys Pro MS908P has the programming module (j2354 passthrou) without it it will not program only code reader

we had one on test for a week,

its ok but things like programming a vin into a bsi, it will only do with a new unit ie no s/hand swaps

It does a lot of diag and live data ok

its all chinglish so you have to wade through it to figure out and then you have to select the wrong car sometimes

eg 2014 308cc had to go in aa a 2010 207cc to access roof

2010 focus 1.6tdci had to go in as a 2008 1.6 tddi (not that ford ever made one!)

we will probably buy it, but the elite version for the larger screen and programming features, plus 2 years updates free

the updates are stupid money, most people buy a new one run it 6 months past its update then sell it and buy another, its cheaper than buying the updates!!!

If you have read a post by anyone on this forum and it helped

please leave thanks and reputation, the two buttons below it takes only 1 second

its especially important to new users to recieve and give Thanks James

Awesome scanner!! Saved me $$$$ already!

Just letting you guys know that I’m a Master Technician and shop owner for over 15 years. The most sophisticated scanner I own is the 2009 ver. of the Snapon Modis which is a great scanner but it became obsolete. With the Maxisys I was a little skeptical with it…cause i have a thing with Chinese made products…but after researching and viewing videos on this scanner…I was sold with it’s functions. When I received it let me tell you…I am impressed as soon as I opened the box. The first thing I like the weight and size of it. It’s light and very comfortable moving around especially that it’s bluetooth…wow done with cables! Next I read people reviewing about disappointments on the updating…it was not as long as they say…I’m connected to cable modem and the update took just 1hr 1/2 and in the afternoon. I did it Ethernet instead if Wifi to make it faster. So I believe those people had connectivity issues. Now the best part, the speed of this thing…incredible. Wow the booting up, the ease of touch screen…it feels like navigating through my Samsung S6. I’ve had this for a week…it it already saved me money. I had a 2016 LandRover RangeRover that needed a rear brake repair…when it came time for the repair, I had no knowledge it had electronic parking brake…so I almost thought I was going to lose that job till I checked to see If the Maxisys had the electronic brake release feature…and shocking it did!! I was so happy! Next job I had was a 2009 Hyundai Sonata 4cyl, complaint was it had a 2-1 rough downshift…found there’s a recall that needed to be reprogrammed on these symptoms…guess what…this thing has a Transmission ECU reset feature…and it worked! Unbelievable! I’m very happy with this and also glad I didn’t go as far as investing in Snapon or Matco products. It’s good enough for me!

Airmatic calibration and it still had a lot of other useful features( it was able to access all of the …

I am more than impressed with what this little tool can do for the price. I was able to do variant coding on a W212 Mercedes, Airmatic calibration and it still had a lot of other useful features( it was able to access all of the 46 modules installed on the Merc).

I also used it on a BMW, Toyota Sienna and a Ford Ranger truck and it was able to access all of the modules there as well, perform live tests, actuations, adaptations ( I saw the option to perform shift adaptations on the Mercedes but I haven’t tried it yet) and resetting to default values where applicable.
One cool thing I like about it is the ability to perform graphing ( to a limited extent – not oscilloscope detail but still on par with equivalent but more expensive tools on the market like SnapOn or Matco).

The not so great parts would be the other, non diagnostic related functions like:
1) Email sharing of the diagnostic files ( they have an embedded app but it doesn’t work with yahoo or gmail servers – I got around it by downloading the yahoo app and using that one to send files to my computer)
2)The tutorial section ( it’s pretty much non existent and for the most part doesn’t even connect to the Autel servers)
3) The complete lack of wiring diagrams and any sort of schematics.

Overall this is a great tool to have around for working on your car, pre purchase inspections and helping out friends. It’s biggest plus in my opinion is it’s price, none of the competitors can even get close to it price wise.
Keep in mind that you have to update frequently to be able to work with modules in newer vehicles. Out of the box it has a 1 year free subscription included, after that if you want to update it you have to pay around 600$ per year.

Autel Maxisys Elite vs Autel Maxisys MS908P

To compare this product with its rival brands, let’s take an example of Autel Maxisys Pro MS908p.

This Autel Maxisys Pro MS908P offers ECU coding, programming, and extensive coverage.

But, a few users have complained that it loses communication with the Audi and VW car models.

In addition, if you select an option, it will display — your vehicle doesn’t support this function. This scan tool also provides frequent connection errors.

Thus, you will eventually have an utterly disappointing and frustrating experience.

However, the main difference between the Autel Maxisys is the CPU. The CPU of the Autel Maxisys Elite is NVIDIA Tegra Quad-Core Processor 1.8GHz.

5-1
While The Autel Maxisys Pro MS908p has the Samsung Exynos Quad-Core Processor 1.4GHz.

Thus, if you are looking for a reliable automotive scanner that’s worth your investment, then do not hesitate to buy Autel Maxisys Elite. This brilliant tool will always offer you a fast and excellent performance.
