From the comparison chart between Maxisys Ultra and MaxiIM IM608:
IM608 key program is better than Ultra. If you’re main to key programming, and hope has an advanced key programmer, then IM608 is best.
Maxisys Ultra could program the ECU of Benz and BMW, and have ECU coding function is a powerful ECU programmer and most advanced diagnostic scanner. And IM608 only could ECU code, could not program ECU of cars.
Ultra has the scope built into it. IM608 has add-on scope, but it is very good.
Ultra also has an internal power supply. It has a rechargeable battery. When you unplug the VCMI, it stays ON so you can run a scope to it.
The scope is very quick and shows up on the monitor almost instantly. Pretty darn good for being wireless.
Ultra has a Topology map, scan vin, repair assist, Split-screen display, im608 does not.
As in Ultra vs IM608? If so then NO. Different tools for different requirements. MaxiIM is a key tool with standard diagnostics – Ultra is an advanced Scantool with MB/BMW ECU Programming including a 4 channel scope.
This is for the purpose of making sure a vehicle is squared away before doing key coding/programming while something else may not work properly.
From what I recall, the Ultra can do some key learning but not quite as much as the im608 but will have much more diag and ECU features compared to the 608.
im608 does 90% of keys in our experience. Its a learning curve, not going to be easy diy but after some research its a good tool. The j2534 lacks mega-can to work on newer Mopars. Diagnostics it can pull codes just like any other tool.. adaptions/calibrations – module programming 25% actually works. Air suspension on mb fails in auto mode.
Ultra- apparently does IMMO too “but not all keys lost”. diagnostics the same as 608. Addon we can see is battery analysis, inspection camera. Comes with scope included. The j2534 supports mega-can so the new Mopars it works. Tested.
