The Autel Maxisys MS906BT and Maxisys MS906 have the same OBD scanning and testing capabilities. They both support reading/clearing codes, live data, actuation tests, ECU coding, and adaptations. Plus they look a whole lot similar in physical appearance.

 

However, the latter just gets the edge over its predecessor in terms of overall functionality. For instance, it can connect to a car’s OBD system using VCI. That is a wireless connection which basically allows you higher mobility.

 

MS906 has the same apperance with MS906BT, but MS906BT has a few advantage than MS906:

  1. MS906BT is installed Bluetooth, allowing diagnosis wirelessly.
  2. MS906BT’s diagnostic coverage includes premium vehicle brands such as Maserati and Bentley, which would be required for high-end service shops.
  3. MS906BT supports oscilloscope and digital inspection camera add-ons which are not supported by MS906.
  4. Finally, MS906BT has the capability to perform coding for covered vehicles.

 

Autel MS906BT Detailed Review

Android OS

The scanner runs on an open-source Android operating system (OS). It also features a powerful Exynos 6-core processor with amazing multitasking abilities. That is why it is very fast to boot up and run scans/tests.

 

Full-Service Scanner

You can use this scan tool for all OE-level OBD2 diagnostic tasks. That includes reading/erasing codes, live data, freeze frame data, active tests, ECU information, matching, adaptation, data logging, ABS Bleeding, Oil Reset, TPMS Programming, and so much more. The Smart AutoVIN technology makes it so easy to identify a car.

 

Extensive vehicle coverage

As one of the leading professional automotive diagnostic scanners, the MS906BT is compatible with so many car makes and models. You can use it on over 80 brands of US, EU and Asian-made car models with OBD2 systems.

 

Advanced user support

The comprehensive help and support you get when using the Maxisys MS906BT is yet another reason why it qualifies as one of the best professional automotive diagnostic scanners.

Fitted with a Wi-Fi module, you can go online to browse for verified diagnostic and repair tips for any vehicle. Even better, the MaxiFix community (used by Autel customers) is a great platform for getting proven fixes and recommended parts.

In case you need further assistance you can reach the manufacturer directly using interactive data logging. They will give you troubleshooting, diagnostic and repair guidance to help you get any job done.

 

Superb construction

First things first, the MS906BT is well-sized for portability. It measures 25.6 x 16.7 x 7.4 inches and weighs 19.25 pounds. Not so different from a tablet.

As a matter of fact, the 7-inch LED touchscreen will leave you feeling like you are using an ordinary tablet. The 1024 x 768 resolution displays images with unmatched clarity.

Besides that, the built-in lithium-polymer battery allows you up to 14 hours of continuous use without charging. That is a lot more time than you will get in other professional automotive diagnostic scanners.

Finally, the scanner supports USB connection and also features audio and auxiliary connectivity ports.

Autel MaxiCOM MK908P and MaxiSys Elite is the same thing?

Answer:
Yes! they share the same functions. both are able to do diagnostic tests and ecu programming
No! they are different in hardware design, like

CPU:
mk908p has a Samsung Exynos hexa-core processor, while maxisys elite has a NVIDA Tegra 4-PaLUS-1 quad-core processor

OS:
mk908p comes with AndroidTM 4.4.2 but the elite with a newer system 4.4.4

Screen:
mk908p has a bigger lcd screen but the resolution is not so good as the elite

Memory:
the memory on mk908p is as twice as maxisys elite. mk908p: 64g, Elite: 32g

USB:
the elite has usb 3.0 capability but mk908p works for usb 2.0 only.
USB 3.0 offers superior speed and a higher efficiency power management compared to the more common USB 2.0. Also, USB 3.0 ports are backward compatible. But, when a USB 3.0 device is connected to aUSB 2.0 port, the data transfer speeds will be limited to USB 2.0 levels

And there is also a bit difference in the aspect of weight and battery.

Pls look at the chart for details.

FAQ

Question: How do I know if my Autel scanner is genuine or not?
Answer: First and foremost, you should buy an Autel scanner from an authorized dealer. If you buy it from an unknown source, you risk being duped or being sold the wrong product. Every Autel scan tool comes with a serial number. After you purchase the device, you need to register it in order to get free software update/upgrade and as well as warranty. As a result, if you try to register the code reader with Autel and it fails, just know that your device is counterfeit. All-in-all, Autel is a reliable company and having a fake product is next to impossible.

Question: Does the Autel MD808 offer its users with free lifetime updates?
Answer: This is where Autel wasn’t clear about its product. In the description, it is written that the product comes with free lifetime updates but it is not. Most users have stated that the free software updates are provided for 3 years and from then onwards, you will have to pay for updates and upgrades. The manufacturer should be clear about this so that buyers are not duped into buying the product.

Autel MaxiSys Elite Review BMW & Mercedes Coding and Programming

Just for clarification purposes, and from my own personal experiences, here’s some useful info regarding the MaxiSys Elite, which many of you may or may already know about.

In order to perform the stated coding and programming abilities on BMW and Mercedes-Benz vehicles, you must have a valid and current service subscription through Autel. With the Maxisys Elite, you get 2 years included free with the purchase of the unit (unless otherwise noted), and I believe 1 year with most of the other Autel models. When your service subscription ends, so does the units ability to perform these specific functions, unless of course you renew. The cost to renew ranges from $1000 to upwards and over $1200 a year, which isn’t cheap. The scan tool itself will still work, but it will not allow you to code and program as before.

Second, you will need a WiFi (Internet connection) to proceed with the majority of the code and programming procedures. If you don’t have WiFi (Internet connection) at the vehicle when you’re working on it, you can take the scan tool out and to a location where you’re able to get a WiFi signal (when prompted), download the necessary files (associated with the procedure you’re doing), and then return to the vehicle to complete it. The device and integrated software allows you to do so. If there is no WiFi, you will not be able to complete the procedures.

In regards to what you’re actually able to code and program, it really varies from model to model and the MaxiSys Elite, even as comprehensive as it is, it should not be considered as a replacement to a dealer level scan tool. Features and functions via updates are always being added, so it only gets better with time, but don’t expect it to be able to perform everything you may need it too. If you need to perform a specific task, always check with Autel by providing them the vehicles details and what exactly you’re looking to do. Personally, I’ve found it adequately capable of handling the majority of my general coding and programming needs. If I had to give it a number between 1 through 10, with 1 being not at all capable and 10 being dealer level, I would rate it a strong 6 for BMW’s and a solid 5 for MB’s. Also, in some circumstances, a certain coding option may be available for one specific model and year, but not for another. For example, it may allow to perform a certain function on a 2008 BMW 335, but may not for the same on a 2009 BMW 335. It can be quite frustrating when that happens, so do some due diligence prior your purchase, to ensure it will perform what you need it too.

Another alternative to being able to perform dealer level coding and programming, if the MaxiSys Elite itself can’t perform the task at hand, is to use the included J2534 pass-through device, and your own PC. You will naturally have to download the manufacturer specific software, which for the most part is often free, but in order to use it, you will have to pay a subscription fee of some sort. The fees and plans vary from manufacture to manufacture, and they can be pricey. The good news, almost all usually have daily or weekly rates which make it far more affordable for everyday DIY type users. The drawback however, the software can be tricky to navigate, not to mention at times not even in English all together. I should also note, due to the level of access these programs grant you, you also risk permanently damaging electronic components if you don’t know what you’re doing. Please use extreme caution when using these programs and software.

When performing coding and or programming on a late model vehicle, it is always advised that the vehicles voltage stay above 12.50 volts. As a rule of thumb, keeping it at 13 volts will ensure you’ll have no issues. To do this, it’s imperative you connect an automatic type battery charger or maintainer to the vehicles battery. This is often a step many skip or simply are unware of, and failure to do so, can lead to an array of issues from incomplete coding / programming to downright failure of the vehicles electrical devices and modules.

Get a screen protector! Get a screen protector! I cannot stress enough how a small $5-$10 investment can help you keep your screen free from scratches, marks and stains. Let’s face it, most of us will use this unit with dirty hands, and being a touch screen device, it is easily damageable. Replacing the screen through Autel can be very expensive so to help avoid this cost, get a screen protector!

The storage case this unit comes in is quite large. With everything tightly loaded within, it is also on the heavy side at just over 25 lbs. Chances are, you won’t need everything included on a daily basis, so if you’re a mobile tech, you might want to invest in a smaller padded case or backpack to haul around the unit and just the essential cables and adapters.

Just because the special aka hot function is listed on the device, it doesn’t necessary mean it is available for use on your specific make and model vehicle. Many of these selections have limited vehicle access, so just because it says it can perform a certain function, double check with Autel if in fact it can perform that specific procedure on your application. I’ve found some of these functions have as little as 10% coverage in comparison to the make and models programmed within the unit.

As a comprehensive OBDII scan tool, it is a superior product. It won’t leave any stone unturned in this category and its vehicle coverage is quite good. Although I have ran into where a vehicle might not be detected via the auto scan feature, I’ve never not been able to connect to an applicable vehicle through traditional manual entry. Once connected, the tool is fast! One of the fastest that I have worked with. Date retrieval takes seconds, and I can often do what I need to do faster. When time is money, there’s nothing worse than a slow scan tool.

The battery on the Elite is pretty good, but be aware, it will drain with heavy use. If you’re going to perform heavy or extensive coding / programming, always plug it into a constant power supply. You can use the vehicles power supply, but just be sure the vehicle itself is being maintained by an automatic battery device as mentioned above.

Unlike some other tools of this nature, updates are performed wirelessly through WiFi and do not require any special or cumbersome dongles, or the connection to a PC. As long as you’re within the service and subscription period, and have an available WiFi signal, updates are fast and easy. If your subscription has expired, the unit will inform you as such and an option to renew will be available.

One other myth or rumor I want to debunk, that I hear often, is that the device will brick after the service or subscription plan has expired. In other words, you will not be able to use it at all, and this is utterly false! When the service subscription ends, the only feature(s) that will no longer function, is its ability to carry out certain coding and programming. It will still have bi-directional ability, allowing you to perform dozens of functions and diagnostic tasks. You will also still be able to use it as a powerful OBDII compliant diagnostic tool across many platforms. So let’s say your plan ended January of 2019, but you have a 2020 vehicle you want to scan. This device will scan that vehicle with no problems, but if any additional functions were added since your last update, you may not be able to access those newer features for that specific year and model.

Last but not least, is it worth the big bucks? The answer is, yes and no. In comparison to other scanners with such capabilities, IMO it is priced much more affordably. I’ve worked with scanners costing two to three times more which provided at best, equal capabilities. Naturally some of the really high end systems that cost in the $15k-$20k+ range will perform much more dealer lever and compressive functions, but the next part of that equation is, do you really need all that? I’ve found that the majority of techs whom purchase those really high-end systems only end up using less than 50% of what they’re capable of doing. The Autel is packed with a nice blend of basic and high level functions, which should be adequate to most. You really need to do some homework and breakdown what you need it to do and on what types of vehicles. There’s really no perfect all in one system, but with some careful analysis and research, you can walk away with something like the Autel MaxiSys Elite which comes really close. Looking at the big picture, the Elite IMO is an exceptional value, just as long as you use it for what it is intended to do. For the guy who just wants to look up DTC’s and have the ability to clear them, it is without a doubt over kill. For everyone else, the Elite could be the answer.

A Little Something About Bi-directional Tests

Essentially, Autel MS906TS is a professional bidirectional scan tool. The scanner can perform system tests as well as actuate injectors, relays, and coils. By doing so the MaxiSYS MS906TS helps you determine the efficiency of that particular system. It does so by sending and receive commands to and from the system.

As a user, you can observe how the system parameters change in real-time. That will tell you whether it is performing optimally. For example, a bi-directional ABS test will allow you to send commands to the ABS system, in the same way, the car’s on-board computer would.

By observing how that system responds to the commands, you can determine whether it would respond to the ECU’s commands as required. If not then it means there’s a problem that needs fixing. If so then your ABS is clean as a whistle.

Back To Professional Diagnostics

As far as the actual professional functions, you can use the MaxiSYS MS906TS for adaptations, matching, coding and relearns. Things like key coding, ECU coding, ECU programming, TPMS relearn and any sensor relearn should be a breeze with this diagnostic tool. There’s a built-in 8MP camera with a flashlight to help you illuminate dark parts during diagnostics.

The Autel MS906TS provides freeze frame data in addition to live data. If you are more comfortable with graphical data you have the option to view PIDs as full-screen waveforms. Besides, it allows you to print and/or save the data. There’s a built-in memory with a 32GB SSD storage capacity for holding the data.

Finally, the built-in 10000mAh lithium polymer battery keeps the scanner going even when it’s not connected to a power source. You may need that kind of service when you are using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi to run diagnostics.

Built-In TPMS Antennae

Autel-MaxiSYS-MS906TS-3

This is the one feature that sets this device apart from other Autel scanners like the MS906BT, MS906 and even the costlier MS908. Built with an integrated TPMS antennae module, the Autel MS906TS is not only capable of triggering OEM TPMS sensors but can also program TPMS sensors and perform TPMS sensor relearns.

In other words, this device can transfer new TPMS sensor IDs directly to a vehicle’s ECU. If you are an auto mechanic you understand that most foreign cars usually require a comprehensive relearn procedure before being sold or used locally. When it comes to TPMS relearn, the MS906TS will initiate the process automatically and save you from the hassle of doing it manually.

Extensive Connectivity

Although it comes with OBD2 adapters, the Autel MS906TS also supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections. In other words, you can ditch the cable completely and use a wireless connection to run diagnostics.

It uses Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi. This type of Bluetooth is not only built for secure connections but it also supports Enhanced Data Rate (hence the EDR) for faster data transfer. The only problem is that it’s only suitable for short-range data transfer.

Luckily the MS906TS offers a solution for that. The 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi module covers a fairly long distance. With speeds of up to 54Mbps, this connection lets you run diagnostics from outside the car.

Note that you will need an OBD2 dongle that supports Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or both for you to use this scanner’s wireless connections. That’s a small cost to pay considering how enhanced your mobility will be.

While Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are the most important connections, at least as far as diagnostics, they are not the only ones supported by the Autel MS906TS. It also features USB 2.0, Mini USB 2.0, SD Card, HDMI 1.4a and Class1 ports.

Wide Vehicle Coverage

The functions above make the case for the Autel MS906TS. But to top it all off, the scanner has an impressively wide vehicle coverage. It works on over 80 brands of OBD2-compliant vehicles, domestic and foreign.

That means if a car was manufactured after 1996 then it should be compatible, provided it has the 16-pin OBD2 port. For a complete list of covered vehicles please visit Autel’s website. You can reach them for inquiries regarding the compatibility of your car.

Autel Maxisys MS906BT Overview

AUTEL MaxiSYS MS906BT is one of the best Profesional Automotive Diagnostic Tools in the market for technicians and professional mechanics.

In this review, I will provide you with the most details about this Autel Scanner.

The Autel Maxisys MS906BT and Maxisys MS906 have the same OBD scanning and testing capabilities. They both support reading/clearing codes, live data, actuation tests, ECU coding, and adaptations. Plus they look a whole lot similar in physical appearance.

However, the latter just gets the edge over its predecessor in terms of overall functionality. For instance, it can connect to a car’s OBD system using VCI. That is a wireless connection which basically allows you higher mobility.

There’s the option of adding an inspection camera to the scanner. The camera doesn’t come with the default package though, it is sold separately. Here are more unique features that you will get from the Maxisys MS906BT.
