I have this system and it works great. Well lit and easy to see the large digits. http://www.ebay.com/itm/TireTech-ON-...-/231114435137

Interesting.
My EEZTire TPMS does give readings while not moving.
When I pick up my trailer at the storage lot, I back up to it and turn on the monitor in the truck.
It takes a while to acquire the signals, but it always displays tire data before the trailer has moved.

I wonder if they changed the design?

Also, I just took apart my sixth sensor to see what's inside.
The battery is not replaceable by most people.
I'm an EE and will be able to do it, but it'll take desoldering and untwisting of twist tabs. I'm a little disappointed by this.

The TST 507 Flow Thru sensors are very easy to change batteries with only a small phillips screwdriver. I leave mine on for months and just change the batteries before heading to FL.

I got mine earlier this year so maybe it was upgraded. Also, the battery seem easy to replace with a tiny Philips head...one of those hearing aid-type batteries.
