Main Features of Autel DS808K and MK808BT

Autel MaxiCOM MK808BT - Low-End Diagnostic Plate

By comparing the two products, it is found that the biggest difference in hardware between MK808BT and DS808K is that MK808BT connects to the vehicle through VCI Mini wireless Bluetooth, and does not need to be limited by the cable (the transmission distance is about 10M, and the transmission distance will also be affected by the surrounding environment.)

As a low-end diagnostic tablet, the MK808BT cannot implement more advanced functions such as Bi-Directional control(Active test) and brush hiding of some models(👉Contact us), and the reset service does not cover as many vehicles as the DS808K.
