Question: Is it availalable with standard package which has less adapters and cables?

Question: Is it difficult to register this device? And can it support Spanish?
Answer: Registering the device was easy. You simply go to autel’s website and set up an account. Once you do that you take the registration code/passcode from the scan tool and register it on the website. You then make sure that the scan tool is hooked up to your wifi which is setup in settings. Then you are ready to update the scan tool with the latest software.
Changing the language settings is also easy. You simply do that in settings as well and have multiple different choices. I do know Spanish was one of them. I returned mine because it could not code or reset any adaptaions in any modules on my vehicles. My vehicles are about 15 years old and I think the support on older vehicles goes away with the updates. It probably has more capabilities on the newer vehicles. I should have purchased one of these 5 years ago and never updated it so that the scan tool could retain its capabilities.
Question: Can i use for other connections besides OBD2?
Answer: Yes, this is full set version, it is included with many cables and adapter which are not OBD2.
Question: What is the head set used for with the scan tool
Answer:It’s not used with the tool is just a free give away to get you to buy an outdated tool that according to autel there will be no more updates after Dec 2017. I sent it back because I couldn’t get it to update or more like it removed software during update which is another common complaint on their site. I feel it’s dishonest to sell things claiming a year full updates and it’s not a year is much less than a year but I guess China isn’t afraid of a class action for fraud.
Question: Does it do tire pressure and how about the free headset?
Answer:It will perform limited tire pressure functions (i.e. Read it) if the ECU program allows it via OBD II connector. The free head phones are surprisingly very good, they are comfortable, easy to use, battery lasts a long time and rechargeable.
