Following this. In the market for a solution too. The Pressure Pro Pulse FX is at the top of my list right now, but not convinced yet.

I like the TST truck 507 system. They have great customer service. For example, I wanted a five sensor package so that I could monitor the spare tire too and they put it together for me. I installed mine without the anti theft part so they are easily removed to add air if required. The receiver is easily programmed and I find that I donít need the repeater.

Did you have to call them, or can it be done online?

@Adventure.AS how did you remove the safety part (or did u buy that way)? I find it annoying and also unlikely someone will notice or steal the caps

IIRC the anti-theft cap can be removed by undoing the three screws with a small Phillips screwdriver.

This is the same unit, TST 507, that I purchased and it does a great job. The monitor works very well as mentioned and one charge will last for several days if you turn it off when not using it.

I really donít want another device to have to plug into the TV, dash space is already at a premium. Anyone using an app based TPMS on their phone? The Pulse FX is one option, and the Zus is another for lower psi tires.

As previously mentioned the TST receiver has a battery and can last several days without being plugged in. You don’t need to have the receiver in direct view as you will receive audio alerts (although I like to visually monitor the tire pressure and temperature.)

The Pulse FX you mentioned needs continuous 12volt power to run as well as requiring your cell phone to be on and running the app to receive alerts.

TireMinder Smart

I too went through lots of sites, reviews, considerations last summer and ended up getting the TireMinder Smart TPMS. On two trips it has been "good", a major false alarm (luckily we were returning from a 700 mile trip and only 5 miles from home - and then there was NO loss of air.)
I liked it because it uses my iPhone (one less monitor cluttering up the dash), it shows a relatively constant reading on the tires (I do not need it for my F-150 and with a 19' Bambi only have two tires to monitor), it is adjustable (to a degree, wish it could be more so) and I can change the alert points, it monitors each tire for low PSI and high Temps.
I still have reservations due to the false alarm (showed a drop from 70psi to 25psi but there was NONE!), I have yet to figure out how to tweak the Temperature alerts (as the temps go up with road travel it will go off "prematurely" - tis a minor problem and I have to admit I don't recall the real details from early October.) and the sensors all read a little different (one was 10psi off from my gauge and the other sensor that I then put in place.) I am not so worried about the exact pressure because I can, with only a little trouble, check the tires each day - I want to know of dramatic decreases and then this seems to be "good" (again recall the one false positive.)
All in all I like it but also have some reservations on a product that I paid $300 for. Overall I would rate it at 4 (5 being ideal).

I've had the TST system for about five years and it has been great. The monitor stays charged for a very long time. I do use a booster on our 30' and just moved everything to a new trailer. Don't need the booster on our 20' car trailer.
