How important is it to have configure CD included in the Autel Scanner MD802 Maxidiag Elite Full System. What does configure CD do? Thanks,
It is not critical but it allows you to update units software on SD card and save and print scan results.

It is confusing. Your first link points to the one I got except I paid $229.00 at that time. I have never used CD but downloaded Autel Maxi PC Suite from their website.

First thing to do when you get it is connect the cable to unit and car and run through Auto Scan. W211 has lots of control units make sure you maintain battery or run it at idle. Be gentle unboxing, save all packaging just in case something is wrong.

My car is running fine now, but always want to get a good scanner for garage. I'll definitely run through auto scan as you've mentioned. Good point about the battery cause I'm still running with the original battery (will be 12 years next week).

Has anyone had problems with Autel products purchased through Amazon. I have read about people not being able to register with Autel Us with products purchased on Amazon or Ebay or Alibaba. I contacted Autel Us last year and they told me they don't sell direct online and any website with Autel in the name is not an authorized distributor. They sent me a list of authorized ditributors and none the ones found on the previously mentioned sites were authorized.

Purchased from Amazon. No problems with registration or updates whatsoever.

Pins look straight. Outer part of plug looks little bowed in.
I finally got it to work, not as easy as other scanner i have used and don't want to damage odb2 port.

Did auto scan and found 2 faults relate to door closure. Clear the faults and everything is good.

Same thing here, no problems with registration or updates.
