    Are valves bluetooth? Just trying to understand how the sensor works.

    They are wireless, but not bluetooth, they are in the 2.4Ghz range, similar to WiFi, as the range seems to reduce when I tried them on my laptop which was connected to my home network.

    C'mon E, get it together. You seem to be slipping a little lately.

    Yes, the sensors are wireless, but they are RF wireless. And my Third Eye box says the frequency is 433.92MHz. What you experienced with the laptop is a condition known as RF saturation due to the poor bandpass filters on wifi receivers.

    Add me to the list of working setups!

    RR Screen (cant wait for the CF3 version)


    Valve pic


    And lastly, the receiver, placed under the armrest


    I do have a problem though... specifically sensor number 1 will not learn. I completely deflated/inflated my tire with RRTMS learning and it did nothing. You can see in my screen picture that the value for that front left tire is outta wack.

    Did you run TPMS Doctor.exe and it recognized sensor 1? When you learned it did the banner go away? If so, just wait a day for all the sensors to recycle to normal mode. Then just relearn the one sensor by deflating it, once the banner goes away pump it back up and wait 15-30 minutes for it to return to normal mode. Should work right from then on.

    Otherwise you got what we call a "lazy" sensor. Moving the receiver to d different location sometimes fixes it, but no one has a definitive solution.
