The Autel MaxiCOM MK808BT delivers OE-level diagnosis that includes basic, advanced and professional functions. This mid-range device resembles a tablet, which makes it rather easy and fun to operate. But how does it perform? This Autel MK808BT review looks at the main features and functionality.
Autel MK808BT is built with Android 4.4.2 KitKat. And with the tablet-like design, operating it is a breeze. If you know how to use a smartphone or tablet you can easily find your way around the MK808BT. It has dimensions of 9.4 x 5.9 x 1.4 inches, which makes it easily portable. That’s an important consideration if you are a mechanic and need a scan tool that you can walk around with.
It is equipped with practical functions and user-friendly design. Comes with Collapsible stand, it's very easily to stand on the desktop or hang on the steering angle. Totally hands-free while you are diagnosing your vehicle. Connect the MK808BT with the MaxiVCI Mini via Bluetooth and you will be good to run diagnostics. It allows a range of up to 33 feet (10 meters), which is pretty convenient if you want to do remote vehicle diagnostics.
2 Modes for Vehicle Identification: Auto VIN Scan and Manual VIN Input
This Autel scanner uses auto VIN to identify a vehicle’s make, model and year automatically. The good thing about this feature is that you won’t have to enter your car’s information manually. Unless it’s missing in the scanner’s database. On the downside, it’s actually possible that the Autel MaxiCOM MK808BT might not have your car in its database. Some models, especially the latest ones (from 2015), cannot be identified automatically. In that case, you will have to enter that information manually.
Basic OBD II Diagnostic
mk808bt supports all OBD2 protocols. They include all universal modes and some brand-specific modes like Diag-H by Honda and UART by GM. As such, the device gives you access to the engine (ECU), transmission, ABS, SRS and all the major systems. You can read and clear their codes. It, therefore, allows you to turn off the Check Engine Light (MIL) and other warning lights.

Will the Autel MaxiCOM MK808BT work on your vehicle? On paper, if the car is OBD2 compliant then it should. In other words, if the car is a 1996 or newer model then the device should connect with its onboard computers and deliver all the basic, advanced and professional functions advertised by Autel.
The reality is a bit different though. Let me start by saying that you can use the MaxiCOM MK808BT to perform all basic diagnostics (ECU, transmission, ABS, SRS and other main system scans) on all OBD2 cars, domestic and foreign.
However, some advanced and professional functions don’t work on certain car brands. For example, it doesn’t do injector tests on some VW and BMW cars. Similarly, TPMS service doesn’t work on some Honda, Hyundai and Benz cars. Before purchase, you can contact the seller to confirm.
