I've been doing a bit more practising and a few more demos on the MOTPro, to get a real handle on what it does and what it doesn't do, particularly in relation to the Autel MaxiDAS DS708, on which it's programme is based.
For speed and simplicity, the MOTPro's tests are classified under 4 headings, OBDII, Scan, EPB and Service Reset.
When it comes to doing engines, you have a choice of going via Scan and getting the machine to serach for a programme to cover that exact engine, or via OBDII (the universal engine programme). The reason you might sometimes want to try the latter is that OBDII provides live readings and graphs on engine, which Scan doesn't. On the other hand, Scan tackles practically every ECU on a typical vehicle - Airbag, ABS, Climate, etc. As regards the EPB and Service Reset programmes, these DO offer live readings, activations and programming, just like on the DS708. Naturally, both machines can extinguish all the various warning lights.
Of course, the DS708 also has all the old-style non 16-pin plugs for pre-2000 vehicles, which the MOTPro doesn't, although they can be ordered - the programmes are installed already.
When it comes to printing, the MOTPro can do this via your PC. You also use the PC for updates, which come less frequently than on the DS708, but cost just £100 + VAT rather than £300 + VAT per year. The programmes are the same, though, apart from the MOTPro's lack of live readings, etc, as mentioned above. Both machines come with 12 months' updates for free but the DS708 tends to be a few weeks more up to date, because its updates are posted to the site more often.
As for price, the DS708 goes for £1245 + VAT, delivered, whereas the MOTPro is just £499 + VAT.
The MOTPro really is an incredible bargain - in fact, they both are.
I hope this is helpful.
