Review 2:

Everything was successful from beginning to end.

When it comes to key programmers, Autel is one of the leading names on the market.
The Autel IM508 is an impressive and versatile key programming machine. Along with these functions, it has a host of diagnostic features. This combination makes it a valuable tool to have in any garage.The key programming functions of the Autel MaxilM IM508 are really its most impressive offering. Not only does it read, generate, and learn keys, you can also reset or code the car’s ECU and MCU. This gives you full control over all the keys for the vehicle.
The MaxilM IM508 can also reprogram IMMO functions connected to keys. Even if all the old keys have been lost, you can remove the immobilizing mechanisms and get the vehicle up and running again. Once you do, you can refresh the IMMO systems, making sure the customer’s car is still protected.
Since the Autel MaxilM IM508 has built-in Wi-Fi, it also offers remote key learning. You can re-set, generate, or relearn keys from anywhere in your garage. One thing to keep in mind is that not all functions are remote-capable. You will need to be connected to the XP200 key programmer to read or write the ECU, or for specialized functions like reading IC cards, infrared keys, and encryption chips.

Review 3:

Along with being a powerful key programmer, the Autel MaxilM IM508 is an impressive diagnostic tool.

It provides all the basic service and diagnostic functions you’d get from a typical high-end OBD2 scan tool. In fact, many of these functions are the same as those found on other professional Autel scanners, like the Maxisys 906.
All-told, the Autel MaxilM IM508 includes 22 maintenance functions. Along with the standard service functions like EPB, SAS, and oil light reset, it has capabilities that are harder to find in hand-held scan tools.
As far as the diagnostics go, the Autel IM508 is as comprehensive as any OBD2 scanner on the market. It gives you access to all 10 OBD2 modes, as well as a host of system tests for specific components. You’ll especially love how easy it is to read and clear any diagnostic trouble codes, and you can switch quickly between live data streams.

Time I do a review for this. Autel deserves this. I’m a auto locksmith. I’ve used most every versatile modern tool. When I bought this I had been using primarily the AutoPropad, because as many know.. It has set a standard of value/versatility/ease of use.. I bought the 508 instead of the 608 because we already have Autel products that encompass the difference. I think so much of Autel, I had to try it. I did not think it would stand completely up to the Autopropad… It did. It stood up and exceeded it in many ways. When your someone that does this all day every day.. You need something that performs. Speed/consistency are everything to us.
The thing is also the perfect size. Well designed. Sits on the wheel. The CPU in it moves nearly as fast as the Autopropad. But so many things are more cleverly set up on the 508.. That you will be faster with it.

Say you get a Chrysler. You just go Smart mode. senses the vehicle model and year. then automatically pulls the pin code on many Chrysler from 07-16.. Then it just puts the pin in for you, hit learn.. bang.
I would say the only 2 makes the Autopropad win on.. Are Mitsubishi and Nissan. The APP is a great Nissan machine.. it’s a great Toyota machine too.. though they are equal in Toyota. I’d say everything else Id take the 508 on. And if you get the XP400 as an add on for the 508.. your now in a different ballpark.. handling more Euro by far..
Oh yes… Also, a big win. Somewhere in the last month it started pulling Chrysler VPW type 2 by OBD. Im pretty sure it’s the only Asian unit capable of that. Theres a lot more to be said for it too.. but, Im no magazine writer! This is an Amazon review I just remembered!
Congrats To Autel. They have the top spot in the value/versatility, of the Key Programmer world.
