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 which offers ECU coding, programming, and extensive coverage. But, a few users have complained that it loses communication with the Audi and VW car models.
Next, 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. While The Autel Maxisys Pro ME908p has the Samsung Exynos Quad-Core Processor 1.4GHz.

Autel Maxisys Elite Forum comments

Autel Scan Tool has been known for stealing other peoples technology and information. They have been accused many times. This isn’t the first time. I meen come on harbor freight sells their product now. So i think they are getting desperate to hock their product through harbor freight.

The Autel represents part of the problem this country has. They steal the info, slap it in a tool, and sit back and collect the money, while a legit company pays for the info and then has to charge for it. We will buy the cheapest, reverse engineered crap out there, so I can save a few bucks. Then we cry about American jobs going overseas, etc, etc.

Buying that crap is no different in my eyes then going to an unlicensed repair shop, so I can save the money over a legit business that pays taxes, employees people, and will be there when you have a problem.

The autel has alot of pirated info and technology thats why its a little more capable. But whats gonna happen in 2 years when autel is belly up and ur stuck with a broken scanner. Snap-on pays for their info and their technology is legit. Honestly its a better product. Still your purchase and your money so. Take our sugestions and info and do what u will with it.

I have used the maxisys and the solus. I really like the Autel MaxiSYS, as far as the layout, menus, ect. The wireless adaptor is also very handy. Between the solus and the autel I use the autel when I have a choice. I hadn’t heard anything about that Ford suit until this thread started. One thing about the autel: in my experience, it doesn’t function well with Hyundai and Kia cars. They may have done some software updates to improve that, but the last time I tried it would only do generic obd2 on them. Something to consider if you see many Korean cars in your neck of the woods

I know the Snap On reps are constantly talking about this, and most likely they are misinformed, exaggerating, or both. The Autel MaxiSYS Elite is about the only scanner (IMO) that can seriously compete with the Verus. The MaxiSys is 100% faster the Verus, way easier to navigate, and a third the price
