    I might be wrong, but it looks to me that the entire external antenna has the shield still on.

    I tried learning mine for the first time...from Centrafuse...
    No go...nothing.
    Also, everytime I restart the PC, I lose the TPMS device. I have to physically unplug and plug it back in! Major PITA...
    Gonna try TPMS Doctor I guess...

    I had this issue when plugging the TPMS into a hub. I had to use a onboard port. Also if you use X-Port for you GPS, it has the option to virtually unplug other devices also. i do it for the GPS, and thinking about doing it with my Sprint card, it freezes sometimes too.

    I need to look into the X-port thing...
    But I STILL can't get the ******* thing to learn! I make sure it's connected, the plugin says it's 'ok', I go into settings, pick the sensor and tire and learn, it's 'waiting', I go and deflate the closest tire (almost flat!!) and it doesn't 'see' diddly-squat...

    I'm getting very frustrated...especially considering the time and money I put into this!

    OMFG, you sound like me when I get ****ed, lol. You are really scaring me, because although I have had the TMPS for awhile (5 months i think), I havent installed them into the tires yet.

    I found at first that I seemed to have similar issues, but in the end all I did was put all other sensors I wasn't pairing up with the controller in the other room, far enough away that there was no chance of issues. I know they're not nessecarily meant to be sending info, but I did this regardless.

    Then I just made sure the sensors were well away from the controller and was very patient in the learning process, as someone else mentioned, it seemed like sometimes the TPMS doctor and the other applications get a bit grumpy. I basically got them to learn quite easily in the end and once they were done I unplugged the USB module and then ran the RRTPMS plugin and tested, all seemed well so I then loaded the CF plugin and also worked well.........

    I have to admit the process isn't fullproof, but if you keep the sensors well away from the controller (2metres) then it seems to help, when I had them too close I was getting no joy.

    The sensors are already in the car...
    How do you do the 'learn' with TPMS Doctor?

    Have you tried using RRTMS 1.40 to learn the sensors? You don't have to use the CF plug-in to program, in my experience it is still quite buggy. RRTMS works much better (not to mention it has had many more revisions) when it comes to learning sensors. Once the sensors are learned the data is stored to EEPROM on the board itself so you can see the data on CF after they are learned, you can even switch computers and it should still work identically. Also another thing to look out for is distance. Too close is no good and being to far away doesn't do much good either, I would say about 3-4 feet (1 meter) has been the sweet spot during my testing but I have had the sensor work from as far as 10 meters (outside, open field, using a pesticide sprayer). Also when I tried to put the reciever right next to the sensor when learning the sensor did not want to learn 9 out of 10 times. Also if you haven't already mounted the sensors then it might be best to purchase an inexpensive pesticide sprayer to do the learning so you don't have to keep inflating and deflating your tires. I hope this helps solve some issues...
