MaxiSys Ultra Pros:

1. VCMI (5-in-1)

  • VCI, oscilloscope, waveform generator, multimeter, and CAN BUS

2.OE-level Topology Module Tree

  • Vehicle's crux

3.Intelligent Diagnosis based on DTC

  • TSB, repair tips, DTC analysis

4.Multiple view

  • A multiple view allows multi-tasking.

5.Scan VIN or license plate to select your vehicle
6.Support more new protocols (including CAN FD/DoIP)

  • This gives you the access to more new vehicles. For example, this allows you diagnose GM vehicles after 2019 without a CAN FD Adapter and do BMW (F/G chassis) online programming without an BMW Ethernet Cable.

Note: The CAN FD protocol is only applicable for GM models after late 2019; the DOIP protocol mainly supports Volvo after 2018, Land Rover/Jaguar after 2017, F/G chassis BMW.

MaxiSys Ultra Cons:

1. Very high price and expensive update fee
2. Irremovable built-in money

  • Buy from the dealer to whom you can send your device to handle battery issues in case.

MaxiSys Ultra supported protocols:

DoIP, PLC J2497, ISO-15765, SAE-J1939, ISO-14229 UDS, SAE-J2411 Single Wire Can (GMLAN), ISO-11898-2, ISO-11898-3, SAE-J2819 (TP20), TP16, ISO-9141, ISO-14230, SAE-J2610 (Chrysler SCI), UART Echo Byte, SAE-J2809 (Honda Diag-H), SAE-J2740 (GM ALDL), SAE-J1567 (CCD BUS), Ford UBP, Nissan DDL UART with Clock, BMW DS2, BMW DS1, SAE J2819 (VAG KW81), KW82, SAE J1708, SAE-J1850 PWM (Ford SCP), SAE-J1850 VPW (GM Class2)

Which to buy:

Both are good choices for a professional repair shop, and the point is that if you need such functions of Autel Ultra, particularly the 5-in-1 VCMI and topology mapping, because they are the major difference that you invest your money in. If so, Ultra is a good tool for you; if not, maybe you can consider Elite II, and for the next about 2,000USD, you can consider an IM508 with XP400Pro or an IM608 PRO to work together.
