Hi, I'm looking to purchase one of these and I cannot seem to find the difference between these two models to make a decision on which one to purchase. Do these cover the same reading and testing? Do they both have free lifetime updates and get the same support from Autel? If you go on Amazon or Ebay they say that the MD805 is the new upgraded version of the MD802, that it is faster and smaller than the MD802 but comes in a padded case instead of the plastic case. I need to be able to clear a couple of codes, one of them is transmission code. I also like that it helps with diagnosis and would like to have one of these for future use.
Amongst a few other diagnostic systems I have the Autel MD802 elite, full system option, it claims to do everything pretty much, however no scan tool ever does there are always holes, tried to calibrate a SAS on a Landrover , MD wouldn't do it, neither would Launch x431, Autodiagnosis did though. On the whole though MD 802 is pretty good for the money, suggest get it from Amazon, easy to send back then if no good for you.
