Fact: Autel MD806 PRO from auteleshop.com is as the same as Autel MaxiDiag MD808 Pro sold in the physical store. Although they have the different outlook. In another words, Autel MD806PRO can do what Autel MaxiDiag MD808 Pro can do.
A DIYer is very happy with Autel MD808 Pro and give feedback.
As a non-professional (a DIYer), you could also consider to have one Autel MD808 Pro although there are a bunch of other OBD tools much cheaper available in the market. Especially if you are a geek like me, or are interested in knowing more about your vehicles like how they run, or just want to have peace of mind when you drive or when you need to clear a code, I think this may be the ultimate tool for you.
I used Autel MD808 to do many tests, ranging from a 10 year old Japanese car to a 1 year old German car. It works like a charm! the 10 year old car has no fault at all 🙂 I also love the live data, which not only can be displayed as numbers, but also GRAPHS! As a geek, I really love to see these curves, and I appreciate how much effort they put to make this work so beautifully.
Autel MaxiDiag MD808 review on TPMS reset:
There is no icon displayed for TMPS, you could find TMPS under “Diagnostic”=>”2 Control Unit”=>”13 TPMS”. I was guided by the TMPS information to pump 4 tires of my vehicle to be exactly the same pressure. Couldn’t be happier to have this Autel MD808 Pro tool.
Autel MD808P review – better than Autel MD802 in memory and speed
Autel MD808P has a bigger screen and memory, and seems the scanning speed is a little bit faster scanning all systems.
Autel MD808 pro review on diagnosing ABS issue and clearing the trouble code(s)
Autel MD808P handled these tasks without issue. The ability to see sensors operate in real time and plot them on a graph is invaluable.
Autel MD808 pro software update:
Updates are a must. Make sure to create an Autel account so you can update your unit. Once you have an account you can download the “Maxi PC Suite”. This allows you to update your software and Print content off the device.
My unit came pre-loaded with software version 1.0.
IMPORTANT: With version 1.0, I was unable to update via the included USB cord. I had to get a Micro SD Card reader and update the firmware to 1.5. When 1.5 installed I had a new option to update via USB.
Update 1.6 added additional USB support for newer computers and operating systems. I’m using Windows 10 and kept getting USB failures with the tool plugged in – more annoyance than anything else. After updating to 1.6 that issue has been resolved.
6.Autel MD808 pro Printing function review:
Printing is helpful to “Print” to the included software (which enables this functionality). I have not, however, found a way to print graphical content. Thus far I’ve only been able to print text. Unfortunately that text comes out without much formatting.
To be honest, I don’t have a ton of time working with the tool. With that said, I’m still impressed. Here are some observations, however:
When asking it graph multiple sensors, it can get slow to change screens. For example, I had all 4 wheel sensors being graphed and had an approximate 5-8 second delay when switching from the text display to the graphing display. When merging the graphs onto one plot, it was another 5-8 second delay before the screen updated. Not a huge deal but at the time I didn’t think it registered my button push. So… I pushed the button again. Thus when the screen updated to what I wanted it changed to the next screen in the sequence about 8 seconds later…. It took a few repetitions before I caught on.
To be continued…
Last but not least.
Autel MD806PRO from online store = Autel MaxiDiag MD808 Pro from physical store. So Autel MaxiDiag MD808 Pro review = Autel MD806PRO review.
