Bought Autoboss V30 for some days and happened to learn that my friend had an Autel one, Autel MaxiDAS DS708. Last weekend, he took his DS708 to my garage, and we try to do some comparisons on these obd2 scanners.
AUTOBOSS V30 Auto Scanner excels in:
Live data graphic display
Full component activation
Read & change ECU coding
Setting of adaptation values
CANBUS function supported
Testing report saving function
VOLKSWAGON immobilizer III
Coding of the new control modules
NISSAN idle speed self learning function
Hand-held independent operation, supporting PC link
Original Autel MaxiDAS DS708 has powerful function capability including live data, ECU programming, sensor initializations, coding and module setup functionality… You can google for more info. about DS708 function.
All in all, V30 and DS708 has a wide range of functions. Both nice auto scanners. But, to be honest, I love my AUTOBOSS V30 more for it covers more special functions on more vehicle, which meets my need in repairing work.
Time to enter the system:
And then we powered on our machine, and found that my friend’s 708 is much faster to enter the system while my V30 is loading then.
Compared the vehicle lists, we were amazed that V30 covers more vehicles than 708, especially Chinese cars (V30 contains 14 Chinese cars but there is no Chinese car in 708.)
Here is the vehicle list we made:
V30: Euro.(18); Asia(17); USA(3); China(14).
708:Euro.(17); Asia(14); USA(3); China(0).
For V30, there is no lan port here; so connect to the laptop and download the car list to the SD card, then insert it.
DS708 software can be updated by wifi of LAN cable, because there is a LAN port on it.
V30 only has the language setting, and no other.
708 has WIFI, network, date/time, language, bright, deep, touch screen, remote task, About.
V30 only has English version.
DS708 has versions of Spanish, Russian, French, German,English, Traditional Chinese.
