Short term fuel trim and RPM should work for this test

Maximum graphs allowed is only 2 at a time

There is also no amplitude adjustment for the graphs

At least the graphs has a quick response time

A combined graph

Have to edit the contrast because it is difficult to see

autel md808 testing 18 600x302 - Autel MD808 vs. Launch CRP129: Autel wins! - Autel MD808 vs. Launch CRP129: Autel wins!

Personally would not recommend using the merged graphs because it’s not easy to see and keep track

I guess, in some occasion, having a merged graph is better than none

 

Enter on-board monitor test (mode 6)

Looks like the monitor id’s are translated

Non-translated id’s will show up in HEX like ($01)

Looks like not all test id’s are translated

Non-translated id’s can make some diagnosis difficult

autel md808 testing 26 600x300 - Autel MD808 vs. Launch CRP129: Autel wins! - Autel MD808 vs. Launch CRP129: Autel wins!

Also not all the test id’s applies to this vehicle

Here’s an example of translated id’s of the same car from my another scanner

Exit the main menu

 

On to the enhanced portion of Autel MD808 (the one that reads Scan)

Here is the major downside of this scanner

There’s no auto id

The scanner is updated, but for some reason, the latest is the year 2014 (the vehicle is a 2016)

Good luck on knowing the engine

Auto scan

autel md808 testing 37 600x300 - Autel MD808 vs. Launch CRP129: Autel wins! - Autel MD808 vs. Launch CRP129: Autel wins!

Since the scanner is a regular MD808, it will show Engine, Trans, ABS and SRS only

Enter ECU and read live data

The data list seems to be mixed around where some can be graphed and some cannot

But there seems to be a bit of second lag when existing the control unit

autel md808 testing 43 600x299 - Autel MD808 vs. Launch CRP129: Autel wins! - Autel MD808 vs. Launch CRP129: Autel wins!

I give this Autel MD808 a 3.9 Star as a first impression because it could be better for its price. (Rating may change after further testing)

 

At least compared to the Launch crp129 I used in the past, the MD808 is the clear winner.
