Rod The Inawise tyre pressure monitoring system uses internal sensors and comes in variouse configurations. I am about to purchase a unit and was just checking if anyone has had one. I do not want to get in a discussion about TPMS in general but want comments on the Inawise system(s).
Thanks Bob

Hi Novice

Yes I have two sets of these tyre sensors with one set being the earlier model and one the 4x4 model .Have also fitted the 4x4 models to my boys vehicles.

No problems with any units. I bought extra sensors for mine to use in the spares.
Units have paid for themselves with the tyres they saved. I did find however that the units worked quicker when I ran the aerial wires down under the door kick plates. Probably as they are closer to the sensors. The first unit also had a aerial which could be used in the set but I found the long wire aerials much better.

The 4x4 model has a switch on the back where on road the alarm goes off at 28 psi and when switched to 4x4 mode 11psi is the alarm setting.

Mate has a set also and forgot to tell the tyre fitter they were there and had one damaged. No problem getting a replacement with great back up service from the supplier.


Cheers Teza

As per Teza, I have the 4x4 model and purchased 2 extra sensors for the spare tyres.
The system has twice alerted me to a falling pressure and saved damage to the tyre.
I also find it reassuring to glance at the monitor and check the pressures and also temperatures when running with reduced pressure. The '4x4' / 'normal' switch is easy to use without having to recalibrate each wheel as in some units.

The only criticism I have is that the audible alarm was not loud enough to be reliably heard above the Troopy noises. This was solved by a miniature audio amplifier using a microphone on the monitor........ Can't miss it now!

Cheers
Allan

Good one Bob,

Don't be too worried about my expression of low audio volume, the Troopy can be noisy in full flight. In a quieter car it should not be a problem

Cheers

Just a quick followup Novice

I originally wired the unit to a direct feed and the result is when camped on a cold night if the tyre pressure drops to much, because of the temp, the alarm sounds. Have rewired to accessories as that saves dig in the ribs at 3 am.

Thanks again Alan and Teza comments taken on board. Teza I hate alarm clocks of any description so it will not be hard wired

Cheers Bob
