In summary:1. Model coverage: MP808 has comprehensive coverage, alsmost 1 year newer than D8. and released frequently update, MP808 mainstream models have basically been supported until 2023 or even 2024 (such as Toyota); while some D8 models are only supported until 2022. Years and there is a problem of incomplete coverage of models (such as BENZ lacks 294, 295, 296, 297, 206, 223, 232 and other models), and some car series are updated slowly (such as JLR, PSA is still stuck in 2020);
2. System coverage: MP808 system coverage is complete, and the scanning results are consistent with the original factory (for example, some models of Chrysler 2021 support 15 more systems than D8, AFLS, LBSS, RBSS, SGW, etc.; Honda supports 8 more systems, PADAS, EAS, SFD, etc.); and there are few systems in D8 (for example, BENZ does not support LIN system, and the number of systems is lacking; PSA, such as 208 (P21), has 10 systems less, and 206 and ION lack 1 system);
3. Basic functions: Xtool D8 has problems such as lack of action test support and missing data streams. For example, Ford has no action test and some systems lack data streams; PSA also has no action test, and there are a large number of missing data stream items;
4. Special functions: MP808’s special function support is generally better than D8’s. For example, Hyundai’s special functions in MP808 cover more than 99%. Some D8 models have no special functions or a small number of special functions, such as ENG, ABS, AB, etc.;
5. Security gateway: Autel MP808 supports FCA (limited to European and American regions), Renault (global) security gateway authorization, D8 does not support;
6. Automatic scan: The average scanning speed of MP808 is significantly ahead, the scanning time of a single system is less time-consuming, and the product experience is better;
7. Software Update: MP808 has 1 year update only, but D8 has 3 years free update. It is a bonus of xtool device.
8. D8 has topology, much larger screen, the menu navigation looked to be easier, updates like every day.
9. It is better to keep both. Both very good, they seem do the same stuff. both can get the job done.
