The next day when Igot into the truck the temps were down to 77 degrees and the psi was down to 79-80 exactly where I had them set prior to leaving. You shouldn't have to remove them to show last reported temps.

H - I have the TIRE TRAKER 400C. I hope they are the same, but from reading the manual I did not see anything about being able to take cold readings.

I will call them tomorrow and let everyonr know.

Thanks

B47 look in the files section in the green bar at the top of the page I have uploaded the Tire Minder manual and troubleshooting manual. Download and take a look at pg 11 paragraph 10. That should answer your questions.

Thanks - I haven't had a chance to look at what you said here, but I just called Daryl at Tire Traker to ask him. Daryl was not there, but his assistant said that if I wanted to check my cold psi readings the next morning that all I have to do is turn the monitor on and wait 20 minutes. After that period the last recorded psi readings would be displayed.

This is not fully explained in the manual you receive with the system, but they have included an extra supplement that explains this feature.

So while this is not "real time" information it will at least let me know what my cold psi readings from the day before were.

I feel better.

H - I just looked up your reference here and find some differences.

The Tire Minder manual (page 11, para10) doesn't say that you can check the psi readings cold or not and it also doesn't say anything about waiting 20 minutes after turning the monitor on and getting your last recorded psi readings as the Tire Traker does (see my previous post).

H -no problem - After what I learned today from reading your reference and talking to Daryl I have come to the conclusion that no tpms that I am aware of will give you a current cold psi reading, meaning the reading you get in the morming before you depart the cg. I believe that I will just have to unscrew the sensors and use my guage to do that. I would like to know my cold psi before moving so if one or more of my tires needs air I could do it at the cg before moving.

I am satisfied with being able to get my psi readings after turning on the Tire Traker monitor and waiting 20 minutes. If those readings are good, then I will just believe them until something happens to not believe them.

I do like the TST Flo Though sensors and if I had known about them I probably would have brought that brand.

Which brings up another question - if you can service the tire with the TST Flo Though sensor without removing the sensor, shouldn't you be able to also take a guage reading with then installed?

I got to quit asking so many questions

507 user. ordered and installed mine 2 weeks ago when they offered the 2 yr warranty for no additional cost. Due to wet weather the TT has sat in the yard. Test the unit and it reads cold temp and static pressure just fine. Hardly wait to roll out with the new radials and the sensors in a couple weeks
The flow through update allows you to put air into a slack tire without removing the sensor and having to reflash it.

Cop - thanks and if I had known about the 507 flow though sensor update I would have ordered it instead of what I ordered. I don't mean to say that removing a sensor is that big of a bother, but if I can add without removing one then that is one less thing to mess with.

The TST system gives you cold pressure readings in the morning. Turn on the monitor, wait a few minutes for each sensor to send an update to the monitor and you have your current reading displayed without moving. Each sensor sends updated info about every 5 minutes, unless it detects a change then it updates immediately. So you never have to wait more than a couple of minutes in the morning. The new flow through sensors make it easier to add or subtract air if needed but you should never have to take a pressure reading through the sensor since the monitor always displays the current reading-whether moving or parked.
