    As usually, I recommend everyone to terminate all the programs that have direct access to the TPMS interface, like RoadRunner, Centrafuse and TPMS Doctor, before to launch RRTMS Config and to perform the "learnig" procedure.
    I am glad to hear that you may have found the culprit. Thanks again for all your hard work on this Robby!

    Hey guys,

    If you are looking for a kit we are working on one right now. I think I posted this link somewhere in the thread but i know there's like a million posts now so here it is again if you can't find it. (http://www.portalmediapc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10) Its cheaper than the 3rd eye (less than $200) and you don't have to hack together a system as it will be all on a single circuit board (we are going surface mount on the components as well to speed up production and reduce costs). I will be selling the sensors too as part of a complete USB kit (I am getting them directly from malayasia). Also Robby is going to help me with getting the chips programmed so you don't have to worry about having a different unit than the rest of us as it will work exactly the same. Right now we are working on getting a waiting list together for the initial run(only 8 spots are left) and those buyers will get the units at a bargan price, but after that MP3car will most likely be handling the online sales and the price will be significantly higher.

    Sounds good Lok! Thanks for taking this thing by the reigns and getting it moving in the right direction.

    Excellent Lok...The completely integrated USB kit would be very welcomed. You have a PM.

    The 3rd eye TPMS unit was way too over-priced. TPMS kits from other vendors are available for $60-$100 and offering more or less the same functionality. But since the USB TPMS PIC was based on the 3rd Eye kit, we were pretty much stuck with it.

    I have just installed the 3'd eye sensors on my wheels.

    [media]http://web.comhem.se/mulle4/tpms_sensor.jpg[/media]

    Quality is not impressive. I manage to destroy one sensor.

    [media]http://web.comhem.se/mulle4/brokensensor.jpg[/media]

    The instruction manual was not specific on how to place washers. I did not use my sense, and placed alu washer on wrong side first as I tried to do it as I could see from picture in manual. Alu washer goes on the outside...

    The aluminium nuts also loose shape once fitted, and it is a bit difficult to refit the tyres. At least the low profile 18" I've got on my E46 BMW.

    The washer for the insex nut at the sensor also gets deform once mounted.

    The pin for holding the pin still when fastening the nut did not fit 3 of the 5 sensors I tried.

    In short, you get one chance to do it right and you cannot refit a sensor once used.

    A bit disapointed of the poor quality and I have not yet got to the point of learning sensors and receiving data...

    One question: Without looking into the spec of the pic the learning problem must be in the writing/erasing of EEProm/flash in the pic. Or possibly some powersupply issue as write cycles might require a second voltage supply. What do you think? Is there a new pic sw in the pipe?
