In comparison of software, the IM608 is a Locksmith’s dream tool as it has level 5 key coding as well as other features that allow it to conduct all key-lose scenarios, add keys, and extract pin codes/mechanical key cut codes. The MaxiSys Elite, on the other hand, is more tailored for overall diagnosing and has unique programming capability for BMW and Benz. Both tools have their limitations and their advantage points. The key is to find out what problems you want to solve that will make your work operation more profitable.
