In the following content, we will have detailed comparison: Autel Maxisys Elite VS Pro in Features and functions:


1.Vehicle coverage

The Autel Maxisys Pro and Elite scan tools cover the same number of vehicles. Both of them have extensive vehicle coverage for more than 80 US domestic, European, and Asian vehicle makes and models. Some of the vehicles that they cover include BMW, Benz, Ford, Chrysler, EU Ford, GM, Kia, Daewood, Acura, Bentley, Bugatti, Porsche, Sprinter, Isuzu, Jaguar, Nissan, Toyota, Subaru, etc.



Even though they look similar, these two scanners are different in size and weight. The Autel Maxisys Pro measures 0.1 x 0.5 x 0.3 inches, while the Autel Maxisys Elite measures 25.6 x 7.5 x 16.9 inches. From these dimensions, you can see that the Pro scan tool is smaller than the Elite diagnostic scanner. Additionally, the Maxisys Pro is lighter than the Maxisys Elite scan tool.


3.Speed and accuracy

If you want the fastest Autel Maxisys scanner on the market, then the Autel Maxisys Elite will be the best choice. With a fast operating system in the Android 4.4.4 Kitkat and 1.8 GHz processor, this is a very fast and accurate scan tool. It is faster than the Maxisys Pro scan tool which has Android 4.0 and 1.4 GHz processor.



When it comes to functions, these two scanners offer the same functions such as ECU coding and programming, data logging, extensive OE-level diagnoses and service, smart Auto-VIN technology, tire pressure reset, SAS reset, and many other basic, special, and advanced functions.


5.Battery power

The Autel Maxisys Elite features a powerful 13600 mAH 3.7v lithium battery, while the Autel Maxisys Pro features an 11000 mAh 3.7v lithium polymer battery. Both of them have an excellent run time of more than 8 hours of continuous use.



The Autel Maxisys Pro is lighter and portable. On the other hand, the Autel Maxisys Elite is heavier and not convenient to move around with due to its weight. In addition, they both have a large 9.7-inch LCD color screen. Autel Maxisys Elite scanner has a better resolution when compared to that of the Maxisys Pro scan tool.



If you want the best Autel scan tool and are not afraid to spend in order to get it, then the Autel Maxisys Elite is the scanner to go for. The Maxisys Pro is a high-quality and professional-grade scan tool but it still can’t be compared to the Maxisys Elite in terms of performance.


8.Update and warranty

One of the outstanding features of the Autel scan tool is that their scanners come with a free software update. Though, you shouldn’t be deceived that you will get a free lifetime update as most of the devices only come with a one-year of free updates. But with the Autel Maxisys Elite scan tool, you will get 2 years of free online updates.


Finally, its time for us to make a conclusion:

If you want the most advanced diagnostic Autel scan tool on the current market, then I would suggest that you go for the Autel Maxisys Elite scan tool. But if you want a high-quality, portable, and affordable diagnostic scanner between the two, then I will suggest that you pick the Autel Maxisys Pro scan tool.
