This depends on where you get it.



Both did updates

You can see grey modules that won’t communicate, the CAN-H and CAN-L…

One advantage of Autel is that besides topology it has intelligent diagnostics, which really benefit guys who work from home.


4.Chrysler security gateway

Through Autoauth you will bypass security gateway but Xtool is not on there. So the solution will be an adapter.


5.Key Programming

Since Xtool is a level 3 tool, this is the VCI that gives you programming for like GM, BMW, Mercedes…

As a level 2 device, it does not offer programming.

6.MS906 PRO Adapters

Xtool comes with the older adapters, while with Autel you can buy extra adapter kits.

7.Cons of each tool

For MS906 PRO, there is no European key coding. You can only add keys up to like 2013 2014. Or probably you invest in a KM100, IM508, or IM608.

For Xtool key coding coverage is greater.


Alright! That’s all we share with you.
