AUTEL MaxiDiag MD808 Pro review: a semi-professional tool
Then we move on to the most expensive kit AUTEL MaxiDiag MD808 Pro. It is by far one of the most popular kits we have.
MD808 Pro is basically gonna allow you to diagnose all systems on all vehicles.
Also it’s gonna do everything that other similar code scanners will do. Moreover it will do a deeper diagnosis and this is kind of class as a semi-professional tool. But it aims to the DIY market if you like or anybody with a small workshop garage anything like that.
