I use my pancake compressor at home in the driveway to keep the tires up, and I carry a 12v compressor in the truck for emergencies on the road.

I remember getting tired pumping up a bicycle tire with one of those things. I can't imagine trying to pump up a vehicle tire with one.

Where are the best places to add and check air for tires?

I assembled this rig which I clip to battery posts (or any other hot and ground connections) on my trailer so that my 12v pump line plus 16' air hose will reach all 3 trailer tires.

Speaking of nitrogen, my buddy at work got a flat at a jobsite(we do hvac). He got from the truck, plugged the tire, used nitrogen tank to fill tire back up. We use nitrogen to purge ac lines and gas lines.

I had a 12 volt compressor and it was slow to increase tire pressure just a few pounds. Now with my current 5er I have a 1000 watt inverter that will power a small 120v compressor so I'm good to go even on the road.
