Matco maximus 3.0

Phillip Diagnostician Anchorage, Alaska Posted   Latest  

Hey everyone I'm considering purchasing maximus 3.0 to replace my max go A & my verus pro. Unfortunately no one has done a good video on the damn thing and I. The things I'm really intrested is how well the pid refresh rate is compared to say the snap on scan tool and past launch tools. Also is the graphing been improved? Cause all launch tools I have owned, have always had tiny graph screens compared to snap on. Idk why no can get it right but apparently it's too hard or something. And the last thing is pid recording. I have never had the chance to play with an autel. it's also been years since I played with the otc evolve and that tool need some work when it was first launched. But if anyone can give feed back or hell some videos that would be amazing.

Our Matco guy had a demo unit and let me keep it for a week. I have never used a launch product but was very impressed! The hardware in my opinion is nice and sturdy, it took a 3 foot drop (oops) like a champ. It has some big rubber bumbers on the corners. The unit was very fast! the software is very quick, it would connect to the dongle and ID the vehicle in about 5-10 seconds everytime. Where

The issue you may be having with the Zeus is that you have to hit the Change Vehicle button at the bottom of the screen when you are finished with a vehicle, and you have to do that before unplugging the dongle, and you have to wait for the scan tool to reset back to the vehicle screen. What this does is reset the dongle and scan tool communication to default so that they are ready for a new

Yes, we are aware of that button. But at times it just does not connect and we have to restart the program. At times it won't even respond to a selection, you hit an icon and nothing, you have to tap it a few times. Don't know if thats the software or just the screen that's not very responsive. Overall it's an okay tool, but not worth the money they ask. The only reason we got it was

I think I remember that when we had a demo Zeus for a week. I remember it had more bugs than our Verus Edge, and I figured it was because it was new and they didn't have all the bugs worked out yet. Either way, I agree that money is best spent elsewhere. Have a good one.

With hand held scan tools, I think that graphing scan data is Snap On's strength. We have many factory and aftermarket tools but I grab a Snap On first if I want to graph data. I would grab an Autel or Launch if I wanted to code or initialize a module. I would't get rid of your Snap On especially considering there's a perfectly capable and convenient scope attached.

Ohhh I'm going to keep my verus pro. It has its uses till it dies. Like the volt Meter and such when I don't feel like pulling out the Pico. And it'll be a good back up unit also. I just need something that isn't old amdn well slow most days.

Good Morning Philip, I own a Snap On Solus Edge, Autel Maxysis, and Launch X431 Torque. The Launch software is the same as the Matco unit you’re looking at. The Solus boots up and is ready to go in 10 seconds flat. The other 2 take 2-3 times longer to boot up. It automatically recognizes vehicles faster than the other 2. The graphing is faster and easier to read than the other 2. However, I
