    Hey gang, what is the primary difference between this system and say FOBO. I realize that FOBO is app based to see your tire pressure display.

    I honestly have never heard of that product, had to look it up.. I would say the fact that it needs a phone to operate, but since I know nothing about it other than what I see on the site, I do not know what the advantage or disadvantage may be.

    I received my package and installed it then went for a ride. Works great and easy to use.

    In my package there was the installation instructions (of course) and evening else... there was also a sheet that said the unit was already paired to the transmitters. I didn’t read the extra paper (being a guy). If I had the install would have taken only 10min.

    Two thumbs up

    Hey gang. I am interested in the system. I just watched the review on YouTube by BestRest Products. Pretty good overview but I have a question. You can change from PSI to Bar but you can only see the temperature in Celsius? Has the software been updated so that this functionality is within the unit? Thanks in advance for any replies.

    I don't believe it has as the unit I think only has two digit readouts in each spot. However its really not that hard to understand celsius.

    I hear you. Just a little surprised that if you have the option for PSI or Barr why not C or F?

    Also, are there any active promo codes for the unit? Thanks again for any help!

    One of the reasons for the Celsius only is just as Reidy008 has said. tire pressure is a 2 digit read out and Celsius is also a 2 digit readout in the typical temp range of tire temps. In order to be able to see the digits and keep the monitor at a decent size the metric system wins out. after using this product for over 2 years you get the feel for reading the temp in Celsius.

    I don't worry about the Celsius readout. It would be nice in Fahrenheit, but it is what it is.

    The key is to monitor temperature and watch for spikes. So if the tire is normally running at 40C, and you see it go up to 50, then you have a problem.

    Thanks David.. I see this as a monitor and alert product, not a full on excuse to not do the necessary preride checks.. For myself I dont really pay much attention to the temps, although it is interesting to see what happens with different riding conditions and techniques.

    @Off Road Ryder I’m traveling and I’m getting an error message from the rear sensor. I suspect the battery needs to be replaced. I don’t have the manual and can’t find one online. Before I try it on my own, got any instructions on what type of battery how to replace it?
