Description

Wireless tire pressure and tire tempreature monitoring system, sending units are external and replace your existing tire air caps and the receiving unit can be 3m taped to your windscreen and charge by solar or you can charge by the provided micro-usb cable as seen on our channel with the Adventra & Fortuner. 

The pairing process is a bit tedious when you first get it but if you follow (the not-so-great instructions) once they are set up they are set and forget, then every 12-18 months you can expect the need to change the sender batteries in the tire caps, which seem to be around $3 per battery per tire sensor from Jaycar Electronics (or contact us and we can supply & post out the suitable batteries to you for a similar price).

Great for off-roading, you might air down to 22psi when you hit the tracks but after everything warms up outside and tire temps change you’ll find your tire pressures have gone up anywhere from 2 to 6psi more. Also, get to detect a slow air leak say from sand that got stuck in the bead or after you air up after a day on the tracks you may not notice a very light tire leak on the way home. Very useful in Summar when tracking sand start pressures always much less than progressive day pressures which slowly increase as the day gets more warmer and the sun warms up the sand surface. Chris has personally seen 15psi go as far up as 22psi on a warm Victorian summer day in Big Desert.

Real-world case scenarios for Chris that highlight this as a top upgrade/mod have been 4-wheeling in Big River State Park aired down to 22psi for the day all around, had 7 hours of fun on the track didn’t even notice any issues as small leaks always slow down as the pressure becomes lower, when aired back up, and took the 3-hour drive home noticed 37psi dropping down to 36.. and by the time getting home 34psi while all other 3 wheels still at 37-38psi. Knew the next day I would have a flat so planned extra time to top off my tire back to 40psi and make a booking at my local Bridgestone workshop which just required bead cleaning. If Chris didn’t know he had a slow leak it would have caught him out, either driving on low psi risking an accident or damaging the tire beyond repair, or even worse damaging alloys/rims.

Product disclosure: Due to the changing suppliers of these products, the PCB controllers and internal circuits are the same and these are the same products we use in our Adventra & Fortuner however products can slightly vary depending on when ordered as suppliers are not always the same. They are a Chinese-made product we’ve trialed and tested since 2018 and they just simply do the job, you can buy an Australian-made product equivalent but they are in the price range of $300-400 we figured even if we needed to replace this unit a handful of times it would not equate to that same value and so far these have done a great job.
