Which would you buy if both were $600 which would you choose? And why looking at buying a good used scan tool.

Solus Edge is a way better bargain. If you don't like it, you can easily make your money back because the price is quite low and Snappy has good resale value to begin with.

I normally don't recommend Snappy because I'm not impressed by the depth or breadth of their functionality, but it's a steal at $600.

solus edge retails for around $4000

so at $600 seems like unless its stolen its a good buy.

you dont mention which Autel Maxidas

so its hard to tell they vary from 800-several thousand.

Get a Maxisys, not a Maxidas. There are plenty available in your price range and will run circles around any Snap on scanner...for the money.

Autel can't seem to keep on the right side of the DMCA, so functionality could disappear at the bang of a gavel. (Not defending the DMCA, just sayin'...)
