Description:
The MaxiSys? Diagnostic Platform is an evolutionary smart solution for specialized automotive diagnosis and ECU programming. Designed with the DNA of Autel’s diagnostics family, the MaxiSys is built to offer many of the prestigious qualities of the MaxiDAS DS708 with extreme ease of use and powerful diagnostic performance. However the MaxiSys has evolved far beyond the original capabilities. Utilizing an A9 quad-core 1.40GHz processor that offers 50% increase in speed versus competing products, a 9.7” LED screen with a resolution of 1,024 x 768 capacitive touch screen, the revolutionary multitask-capable Android Operating System, combined with the best possible coverage of OE-level diagnostics, the MaxiSys is the perfect diagnostic solution for shops and technicians who demand unrivalled smart technology and smart repairs.

It also reads information from the OBDII system only, which means that should you lights from sensors that are not directly connected to the OBDII system start flashing (such as ABS, SRS, Stability and Maintenance lights) then you will have to use another car diagnostic tool to find out what the problem is.

Overall, a very good Professional Diagnostic Tool for those who would like to carry out basic analysis on their cars, and for the price tag, it is also the most affordable piece of tech that you will buy.
