Shortcomings of the Autel Maxisys MS906TS diagnostic code reader

It comes with free software updates for only one year – at such a high price, this scanner should at least come with a lifetime of free updates. But this is not the case as you will have to pay for updates after just one year.

FAQ

Question: Do I have to update this scan tool every year?
Answer: No, you don’t. But if you want your car to have the latest software and bug fixes, then you will have to update it every year. This sounds challenging for many but it is not a must. For such a quality scanner, it should at least offer free updates for a lifetime and not just one-year.

Question: Is this scan tool capable of reprogramming shift points of the ECU?
Answer: No, it can’t. The Autel MS906TS is not able to reprogram shift points of the ECU. So, you will have to look for another scanner or a more advanced code reader from Autel to do so.
