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
