TST507 and the TST510 Monitors

I'm looking for feedback on the monitors of the TST507 and the TST510. Most importantly, which monitor is easiest to read with "old" eyes? I have yet to see either in person.
As for the sensors, I'm leaning towards the 507. Due to the fact it can use the flow thru sensors, which I'll put on the inner duals, and use the standard cap sensors on all the other tires.

Can only speak for the 507. Very easy to read when bright light is hitting the screen, easy to read without the light hitting it. And that is while wearing polarized sunglasses; non-prescription.
I have it mounted on the front windshield left of the steering wheel, just above the dash.

That is good to hear (read). Thanks for your input.

X2...monitor visability was very good during day & night use, sounds and monitor pressure check intervals are good.
I used the 507, very pleased with the product...would buy again

Ordered our TST507 on Wednesday and received it on Thursday with no additional postage. Had a few questions about pressure settings like I couldn't get the high pressure below 101 for 50psi rated tires. I called TST and they answered on the second ring. No problem just set your lower pressure setting first for all wheels and then go back and set the high pressure below the 101. Came home and poof. High of 61 and low of 45. Heading out for July 4th and we will see how the TST507 works. I can say this, their customer service is fandamtastic.

The 507 has a ambient light sensor and will adjust the display lighting accordingly. Unless you have a blinding glare directly behind the display, you should have no problem seeing it. With properly set alarms, you will get comfortable not continuously checking it unless there is an alarm. The company is excellent to work with.

You might be setting that alarm off at the high temp of 61 with your tires aired at 50 PSI. I have been over 11psi on a hot day and pavement. When you called and asked did they recommend 61? I forgot what they set mine at. I called because my low alarm was set wrong and flashing all the time. They said just get your monitor, so I got it and they asked what do you air to, then told me what buttons to push and set it correctly. Once they are coded (the Sensor) then it just a matter of resetting your monitor only. I didn't even know it went into sleep mode til after there help.

I figure I will readjust and watch the temps and pressures. Once I get a common pressure and temp I will close it down to a little over and under. I read where most people do this to get there max pressure and max temp. Then adjust them. Not sure I need a big screen to monitor everything. Once it's set for highs and lows it's dialed in.

Set the high limit to 20% higher than max cold pressure, so if his max cold is 50, the high limit would be 60, so 61 is close enough. They recommend the same for low, but I set mine at 5# below my max cold of 65 at 60# and high at 78.

I just left the temperature settings where they were.

I went with the TST507 after dumping my non-working, not so old, very expensive Tyre Dog system that the manufacturer would not answer support questions for. Tickled pink with the new system - works great! I got the flow through sensors on the RV and the regular for the toad. Occasionally, I lose contact with one wheel on the toad, so I may need the extender (MH is pushing 40' plus the 4' or so of tow bar to the bumper of the toad and the sensor I usually lose is the toad rear tire, so can't complain). One word of warning that I had to really research to find out. In looking at the model numbers, I thought the TST510 would be the newer model than the 507 due to the numbering - not so. The TST507 is actually the newer model. No idea why they did that but they did. Good luck! By the way, I found the TST507 at CW for the same price as online, but I had to look it up online and tell them their system indicated it as in stock. None on the shelf and they didn't know they had it there until I pushed them to look for it in the back.

You can throw me in on the 507 pile. I can't read a book without my glasses, but I can read the 507 monitor. I really like the flow thru sensors, but just to be aware, they are a tad restrictive. Cranking the compressor up a notch seems to help, but it's still a little slower going. I wouldn't trade them out though.

And as others have said.. really excellent customer service.

A side note. If you purchase through their website they offer an additional year on their warranty. (3 vs 2)

Great service! I bought the TST507s direct from the company. When I asked if they matched prices, the rep said "We sure do". Then he said "I'll save you some time, so and so has the lowest price online and I'll sell it to you for that amount". It saved me $50!

Great folks. I asked about their warrantee and they told me three years like other folks offered. I would say they will stand behind their product even after a long period of time.

Manual says 15%-pg 2. I just use 20% as it's easier to calcupute.

We don't even have the same manual. No wonder I'm confused. At 15% mine would go off every afternoon. Mine are set for 65 psi CP 15% would be only 9.75% higher or in PSI terms would be set at 74.9 PSI, I know I'm well over that in the neighborhood of 78 to 79 PSI on a hot day. And the factory set mine.

Explain, first you say you called them and set it over the phone, now you say "the factory set mine". Regardless, yours are set by whomever to the same 20% just like mine. Don't understand your questioning why I told the op with 50 mcp to set it at 60.

Oh Please, I just asked where it is posted in the manual, Never did I say you were wrong, My Manual is different that's all. At 15% per your manual mine would go off all the time. Don't make a big deal about me questioning where you got 15%, Wow no big deal. no where in mine says 15% higher then the CP it doesn't give those Parameter settings. Just a question that's all. Please don't have a heart attack over a question. Yes I called the factory or Manufacturer and they asked me my CP. and instructed me how to set it to there recommendations for my system. I guess reread your post #15 that is what I was questioning. I assume you also didn't read my post #7 either. Neil your right I'm wrong......
