Thanks for taking the time to share that because I'm sure it'll help some people, maybe even me one day. I've yet to buy an expensive Autel and the main reason is lack of information on what the units can do so I have no clue which one to buy. I've asked all over and the best I could get from an Autel rep is "xxx model should do what you need". Wth? Should? What if doesn't, I'm out $2500?
So I bought a much cheaper one just to see what it can do but there are no instructions. Even when I asked Autel for them all they had was a basic quick reference guide for connecting and what some of the buttons do. Zero on how to actually use it. So I just had to spend a bunch of time playing with but I have no idea if it can do more or not since there are no instructions or even a list of what it can do. So thank you :)
