Android/Bluetooth TPMS?

Post by zeoran »



I was wondering if anyone had any experience with any of the bluetooth TMPS systems out there. The TPMS that came with my bike died and I was looking at new ones and they have ones that work with your smartphone via an Android app and bluetooth. They look halfway decent, but I'm not sure about accuracy. I've checked a couple of motorcycle sites but they don't have them at all.

God bless,

Do a search using the key word TPMS in the Tech Talk forum. Lots of info there.

I did. Didn't see any reviews for bluetooth TPMS. Mostly talk about GL1800 TPMS systems.

Tiregard, and Garmin both use Bluetooth Technology and they are at the top of the results after searching TPMS in the Tech Forum. Also there are references to FOBO system in the posts. You just have to read through them. search.php?keywords=TPMS&fid%5B0%5D=16

Once you have clicked into search.php?keywords=TPMS&fid%5B0%5D=16, Click Go To Advanced search. Enter FOBO in the Search for Keywords window and then click Search at the bottom of the page. You should get about 60 matches.

FOBO is a smart phone Bluetooth TPMS system.

Thanks.

I dug through. Thing is, most of the posts are old, so I was looking for something within the last couple of years as technology has been changing a lot. I definitely didn't want to get something that used an external monitor or FOB like the one I had previously. I'd much rather just be able to look it up any time in my phone. The ones I was looking at originally on Amazon were all around $40 but they were chinese knockoffs and I didn't trust that they'd be accurate with my tire pressure, which defeats the purpose if they're not.

The FOBO TMPS looks really good, albeit more than double the price. But I went ahead and ordered a set from Amazon which should be here tomorrow.

Thanks for the assistance.

God bless,
