I had the Maximus 2.0 for two years, like anything there is pros and cons with this tool. I will start by saying the tablet is very attractive and feels economical. The obd1 adapters are very useful and come in a very well put together molded case. There is plenty of add ons that make this tool powerful, like a bore scope, oscilloscope, sensor box and battery tester. That being said this tool has absolutely zero support! Matco can not help with a Read more...

This Maximus scanner is a brick. After my update subscription was up it started locking me out of using it. Now 2 years after the subscription was up I can’t even scan a thing! It is like Matco came up with a better wrench and told me I can’t use the older set because they don’t make money on it. I will finish paying for it. But I will never do business with them again. That is bad because I have a lot of there tools and toolbox. If I could give Read more...

This is not a very good scanner. Had one for a year or two. We had to send it in 2 times for screen problems. Autel scanner is way better . maxisys elite is what I'm using now and I love this thing!

I tried a demo Maximus a year ago and it was alright. I liked the scanner overall but not for the price point it was offered at. Well, I tried a demo unit again this year and got a lot of use from it this time around. I was offered to buy it at a competitive price and decided to jump on it. Not sure if older ones were Windows based but this Maximus 2.0 is Android based. I work exclusively on European cars and so far the scanner has done what I n Read more...

This scanner is based off of Launch X431 software but uses a Windows platform. At the time I purchased mine, bluetooth connectivity was just starting to become mainstream. Compared to the earlier launch scanners its not half way bad. I like the fact there is a browser so I can leave it in the cradle at my toolbox and search for information on IATN or google while I am scanning the vehicle. The sensorbox option is great as it is a sensor emulator. Read more...

Maximus 1.0.

Also, the worst I have ever purchased. It roughly imitates the Verus in size and looks. I was excited at first because it was Windows 7 and Verus was still XP. I thought it was going to be fast and easier to use. No way. The updates came for a year and didn't fix much. Read more...

If i could give less stars, i would. The worst investment I ever made. It looks cool, and pricing is great for initial purchase and updates but that's where it stops. Slow, clunkie and worthless. Iv been using various scan tools over my 31yrs as a tech and this is by far on my list of bad scan tools. BUT in its defense, it does have some pretty cool ad-dons. I purchased the Scope leads, Bore scope and charging system leads, All work well. Again Read more...

For the price this tool is good. If you're a diagnostic shop I wouldnt recommend this to be your only scan tool but it definately wouldn't hurt being a backup or the tool you grab to pull codes for someone passing by. If you want more detail, feel free to contact me.

This rebranded Launch scan tool is overpriced, slow, has text written in poorly translated english, and is completely underwhelming compared to almost any other scan tool out there. I used it for a year and hated it.

"But wait" says the salesman, "there's plenty of features you won't find on a Snap On". Sure, there'll be a button for something you want to perform. But once you click said button, you'll be greeted with a screen that states, "Th Read more...
