My under $40(FORTY!) SOLAR powered TPMS. I'm ssooo happy with it.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B078R...sin_image&th=1


I love this thing. It sits on the dash, has a bright display showing all wheels at once, was set up right out of the box and was installed and reading pressures in about three minutes.
It has temp and high/low pressure alarms.

They also make a six wheel version that's under 80 bucks, you'll have to look it up yourself.

I already had an eez TPMS on the 24.1 by the time I discovered this unit, so the $40 solar unit is on my truck.
The second unit I bought is going on the wifes Ford truck. Stupid Ford only tells you a low tire, not who or how. I'll put these right on the stem of the factory internal tpms units.


Flawless.

Just a heads up for a really great product.

One of the bad things with some of these is the fact that the operating range isn't that high. In my application I can only rely on it for cold pressure and if I go under that when rolling down the road.

Can monitor temperature to get an idea if something is wrong.

Thanks for brings this back to the top of my todo list.

I tried the bluetooth option, never installed the app, it wouldn't install without access to contacts etc

Just ordered this for more than $40 but a lot less than the $200 - $400+ for the other 6 sensor systems.

FYI the same display is for sale at a much lower price BUT they use INternal sensors

Update.
All is still working perfectly, and it works through the stupid internal TPMS sensor on the f150.

I tried it on my car trailer and the tire signal reached the monitor in a short bed truck just fine.
Oddly, it somehow senses pressure changes (my guess) in the cab of the truck.
It beeps when I open the door and occasionally if I roll down the window. A single beep, but how do it know?

Different companies make slightly different units that show different tire pressure ranges.
My little expeditionary vehicle will require a unit that goes down to 12psi and some of you will need a unit that goes to 130psi.
All are available.
