This Autel scanner is more advanced than comparable scanner in the price class, and the free year subscription for software updates is a big plus. But its display is smaller than most rivals, and there's some inconsistency in performance.

Autel MaxiCOM MK808 Scanner Car Diagnostic Scan Tool

by Autel
What We like

The Autel MaxiCOM MK808 scanner performs very well and is user friendly. One feature I really liked was that it performed several of the maintenance tests prior to diagnostic updates, after a few days of not using it, it needed to be updated to the newest version. When the old update was finished, I was notified and able to quickly update. The update was 2018 software, and afterward, it gave me the option to download older software. The update installation went smoothly. I have owned other scanners and they are all more expensive, and they seem to perform the same.
