Autel Maxicom MK808 Review

The Autel MK808 is what we describe as an entry level professional diagnostic scan tool. This tool will access all systems and subsystems on the vehicle and works on both OBD2 and pre OBD2 protocols. 

The MK808 is one of the best selling scan tools on the market, offering comprehensive automotive diagnostic results and is designed to perform a wide range of diagnostic functions on most vehicle makes and models. The device is equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen display, making it easy to navigate through the various functions and menus. The device is also equipped with a fast and reliable processor that ensures quick response times.

One of the key features of the Autel MK808 is its ability to perform both basic and advanced diagnostic functions. The device can read and clear diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), view live data streams, perform active tests, and perform adaptations and resets. The device is also capable of performing advanced functions such as coding and as of recently Autel have brought out an update to the MK808 making it bi-directional, which is a feature typically only found on more expensive scan tools.

The Autel MK808 is also very user-friendly, with an intuitive interface and easy-to-follow instructions. The device comes with a comprehensive user manual, and the manufacturer also provides excellent customer support.

Overall, the Autel MK808 is an excellent diagnostic tool that is suitable for both professional mechanics and DIY enthusiasts. Its wide range of diagnostic functions, user-friendly interface, and competitive price point make it a great value for money. However, it is important to note that while the device is compatible with most vehicles, there may be some models that are not supported. It is always best to check the autel compatibility chart before purchasing the scan tool. Alternatively send your VIN to us and we can check if your required feature is covered.

At Premium Diagnostic Equipment we offer our own in-house support with any scan tool. If you are having trouble we can remotely log into your device and assist.
