Firstly Landy, I am glad you are happy with it.
Hi Gone Bush,
The transmitters go a long way. I have seen them work about 30 meters and through my metal garage door without problems. I have 8 of them, 4 on the 200, 2 under the car on the suspension
and 2 on the camper. No issues. They are strong as hell too. When I tested them, I asked how strong they are, the Australian distributor took one off his vehicle and gave it to me and said go find some concrete and throw it as hard as you like on the ground. I did that about 5 times and it worked perfectly.
There are some great features for 4wding and caravaning. Fast discharge, over temp, over pressure, 25% down, 50% down, individual pressure and temp setting, and up to about 10 sensors per unit
with configurable displays for caravans, spares etc. The main unit
runs of a USB port or batteries. The battery mode is great. It has a movement sensor so it turns off when the vehicle is not moving and turns on when you open the door and get in. The batteries only last about 60 days like this though.
I put it near the speaker on the top RHS of the dash ( near the base of the drivers A piller) and it just sits there. It is quite compact.
As mentioned the batteries last 3 years ( I thought it was 5) but they turn off if there is no pressure. They are $50 ea.
It is a great little unit
