About DS808K Package:
Compared to Autel’s previous models MaxiDAS DS708, the Autel DS808K has a complete professional suitcase. Inside the case the host hardware was a compact, smart, rugged, android tablet. This was partnered by many good quality diagnostic adapters including those non-standard 16pin connectors, as well as a thick user manual on how to operate this machine.

Capacitive Touchscreen and the Ambient Light Sensor which can detect ambient brightness when it is inside the workshop, thanks to the screen finish and a good quality display.
The software is very good in terms of layout and size and the touch screen operation worked flawlessly in conjunction with its large, clear icons. DS808K was quick to get going from the initial power up to operate. The response in moving through the menus and executing tasks was immediate. Downloading and running updates speed (which depends on the internet connection speed) was reasonable. The 'services/update' section of the software on the Autel DS808K notifies the user of pending updates, and it's a 'click and go' procedure to set the updates running.

How does Autel DS808K work?
The Autel Maxidas DS808K has wide and comprehensive system coverage, covers all of the prevailing makes and models. A detailed report of software coverage was beyond the scope of my brief.

DS808K support a Graphing a live Data Stream
One of the features that a diagnostic scan tool should have is graphing a live data stream. The reason that this is so important is to enable the vehicle technician to examine the relationships between the various sensors, actuators and calculated values. This is critical for intermittent fault finding and for vehicle problems which don’t set diagnostic trouble codes. In this respect the Autel Maxidas DS808 did a good job. The live data is selected from an array of available parameters and then graphed. The graphed data can be shown as separate graphs or combined in a job graph. The scales are auto ranging and they can be reset to align them to the current operating conditions.
