Looking for advice. Tire pressure monitor systems

I've been using an old Tire minder system for 11 years now and recently made a 3000 mile trip with that same system. Although the system still provides alerts when there is a problem with air pressure it also gives a lot of false alerts.
Now I'm looking at replacing that system with a new unit also with external stem mounted sensors.
The two systems I'm currently looking at to replace the old are the
Truck Systems Tech (TST-507) and the EEZTire (TPMS) both feature a color display.
What do you think? Are these 2 the best out there? Suggestions welcome. I don't want to figure price in to the choices yet.
Just want to purchase a system that works well. Thanks!

TST 507. 20K miles towing, always accurate, no false alerts.

I have the TST and couldn't be happier.
I sometimes think all the sending units come down the same conveyor belt in China and only the monitor changes.
KYD liked the TireMinder system because it shows all the pressures at once, while the TST cycles through. But the TST will alarm instantly if the pressure changes so it's personal choice.

I didn't compare the two systems personally but read reports and reviews and chose the TST-507. So far so good!

TST-507, 4+ years and 2 sender battery replacements since. I have no reason to change. BTW: the system has caught 2 tire issues before they became disasters so far. I see no reason to change but would like the color monitor!

TST 507 on two different Airstreams. Total about 20,000 miles. Works great. I have the non flow-through sensors. No air loss at all.

We have an EZ RV TPMS. It works great, can handle up to 26 tires & has both temp and pressure sensing and alarms. Never had a false alarm. Sensors have replaceable batteries which is a nice feature.

Tpms

We have the EezTire E518 system on a 27FCFBT. Have put about 9k miles on the trailer and never had any issues. Love being able to see the temp and pressure. I have heard about rubber valve stem failures, so I will replace with metal stems when we change from the GYE tires in a couple of years. Sounds like both systems are good to go. Good luck.

Is anyone using or has used the Ford integrated TPMS? No extra monitor required as its integrated into their SYNC system (or so I’ve been told).

My TerraYacht has dual rears and I've added extensions to the valve stems. Does anyone have experience putting the sensors on the extensions?
I did not see any flow-through sensors on the Amazon site. Has anyone used them? Again, much easier for those dual rears @90psig

I have had PressurePro TPMS for 14 years. All I have had to do is change out a couple of senders. I never remove them for storage, although the manufacturer recommends that for longer life.

I have had TST before and was happy with it. Now I use PressurePro and I like it a lot better.

Thank you for your comments about the different systems. This will help me make the right decision before purchasing a new tire pressure sensor system.
It's nice to know I can count on your input.

The biggest decision on a TPMS is to decide how you will monitor it.
The TST (and others) supplies a small monitor.
Some will send to your phone.

I didn't want anything suction cupped to the windshield. Since the GPS is using the bean bag, I added a RAM arm from a cup holder mount. The latest incantation has a second arm attached that holds the Monitor for the Haloview camera. That has a ball mount to T-slot which is used by the monitor.
