Does ELM scan software pull data from factory installed TPMS? Can these be used with factory equipment?
A few question, if anyone know the answers regarding USB TPMS kit:
1. How long the batteries on the sensors are last?
2. Could this kit support more then 4 sensors at the same time? Say 6 or 8?
@ Riv: Batteries will last something like 5 years. At this point in time, I do believe the software limitation is 5 sensors - either that, or 9 sensors, can't remember now. Hardware should be capable anyway of supporting up to 9 sensors, but we will need new firmware for this - which Robby may or may not do.....
Anyway, herewith a few shots showing how I mounted Alok's TPMS receiver in my M350 Minibox case(mini-itx) - please note I've replaced the stockie antenna with something a little better, and it works fine within the passenger cabin. I have also desoldered the orginal TPMS USB socket, and soldered a cable, which connects via to a default header-block to one of the internal USB connectors to the Zotac motherboard.
NONE OF THIS is visible once the default M350 plastic bezel is attached the standard way :) Very nice, and compact!
and a last one:
Now, all we need is either Alok or Wolfgang to redo the TPMS plugin for CF30 :flowers:
Hope this is of some help to someone.
I thought you were doing it sonic?
i attempted to do it... but converting from cf2 to cf3 AND converting from c# to vb.net became quite the chore. Couple that with the fact i have no skins NOR do i know what skins are required because i cant install the CF2 version without CF2 installed. Needless to say i'm kinda lost :)
Well I now have a separate HD for my laptop which I have installed CF3 on, so I am in the process of converting my CF2 plugins over to CF3.
Maybe when I get them done I will look at the TPMS one.
Or if you want I can get you the TPMS skins for CF2.
