Even without comparing the units I can say that there would be no practical reason for a T1N owner to upgrade to a MD808. There haven't been any changes in K-line access to the T1N since 2006.

I agree. My comment wasn't a complaint, just an observation.

The MD808 has more capability eg. - live data choices that applies to the T1N vs the iCarsoft MBII. That said, being that I have both, the quicker iCarsoft will be my go to scan tool unless the extra capability of the MD808 is needed. I also have the DAD. Since purchasing the iCarsoft MBII the DAD has not even been powered up. I should check that the Dell 610 is still working.

There's another thread asking about the "Autel AP200" ... which is an Autel dongle using your smartphone as the button/display box.

$63 $69 on Amazon, and Autel claims it's the 808's coding.

gadget: https://www.amazon.com/Autel-AP200-B...rintersou02-20

(one downside: it's a "single vehicle model" scanner, so if you need to use "two makes" to scan the Sprinter, you need to add another $20 per year for the "second model")
