Autel IM608 / IM508 will do most key programming and diagnostics unless it requires online calculation.
For example, Autel MaxiIM IM608 won’t program a Mercedes key in AKL situation after 1-year subscription expired, because IM608 won’t perform password calculation which needs to be connected to Autel server.
User’s experience for sharing:
- it does most stuff, except anything to do with online calculations. I used my im608 without subscription for about 4 months, I don’t do many BMW, MB or VW so I pretty much didn’t even notice I didn’t have a subscription.
- You won’t do Mercedes’ bmw vag some GM Toyota etc
- It seems every time I’ve used it for simple things immo related it needs access to Internet. Pulling a pin code on Peugeot it needs Internet access.
- Most vag still working fine. Just NOT free.
- When subscription runs out you lose support, warranty and anything that requires online access for pin calculations. Otherwise it will still work.
To sum up!
Why would you NOT pay for the subscription .it is well worth every penny, to pay the subscription here:
