Autel MaxiDAS DS708 Scanner Review

I’m Dennis, I have been focused on the Autel MaxiDAS DS708 for a long time.I find thatthe Autel MaxiDAS DS708 has many advantages,including support for more than one “brand”of vehicle, all in one design, automatic Wi-Fi updates available, advanced USB communication, etc. I spoke to Autel and they told me that this does everything EXCEPT “it can not flash/program modules…” Besides, I asked on the forum if anyone who has tested this scanner.


Fortunately, I did get some thoughts and comments from friends.

Customer A: This is the only scanner I have. The DS 708 was able to not only read the module but had good bidirectional support as well. The ford diesel coverage is very good. The gm diesel support is hit or miss. Haven’t tried dodge. The European coverage is excellent. Bmw support is great. Mine even works on pre obd2 models using the proprietary bmw connector.

Customer B: I’m Chriscox. I own a ds708, have used it for 4 years since they came out, love it, great scanner, its basically 99% has the function of techII.

Customer C: There is no internal battery in the Autel. But you get used to it. . If you visit Savannah before you make your scanner purchase you can try mine out. But really… For the money it is by far the best I’ve seen or us

Customer D: I bought one to have a generic scanner who works pretty good, no scope though. I haven’t really gotten to play around with it much. We use it on occasion for the odd non German car that comes through the shop so I don’t know all the capabilities.

Customer E:I’ve owned one for about a year, got it between €700~800 at guys are great there.It does do software updates over wifi and they are updated pretty frequently. Live data has some of the best coverage I have seen for an aftermarket scan tool. For the money is can’t be beat. If you want a general shop tool this pretty damn good.Like others have said, no bells and whistles, no scope or trouble shooter, just good basic info. I use this mainly for Chrysler as the factory tool is insanely expensive and I am pretty pleased with it.

Great thanks to these friends. Now I have bought the Autel DS708,and had a great experience. Hope this blog can give help people in need.
