Sorry for the lack of updates. We have currently working on the application development side of the project right now and also working on getting the necessary certifications for the actual device. Since we are using Bluetooth as well as RF communication we need to go through FCC testing and also SIG testing and approval. These are both very expensive and time taking processes so please sit tight as we do our best to get this device approved and ready for sale to the general public. We will most likey be doing a beta test soon as we have in the past for the USB TPMS to help with the testing phase. Current USB TPMS users will be able to use their exisiting sensors so only a reciever will be needed, so the transition should be fairly simple. As soon as I have something to share with you I will be sure to post. Thank you for your patience.

It occurred to me the 433 MHz band is the unlicensed band. And I assume the bluetooth chip is a pre-assembeled unit. So um why bother with approval?

Hey guys, I apologize for the time it is taking to develop this product. I expected this to take far less time and money but we are new to the bluetooth development world and we did not realize the number of costs associated with development (compliers, signal analyzers, dev kits). We have been able to get past the first set of obstacles and our biggest hurdle now is the Bluetooth approval process (~$20,000). We have a production level prototype in the works (pcb is ready but I am waiting on parts, I will post pictures soon) and we have begun working on a simple app to help us see how well the device is communicating over bluetooth in respect to range, reliability, and functionality. I hope to have some updates for you guys in a few weeks. Thanks!
Any news on this project?

Hey Lok, any progress towards this project? My existing TPMS sensors are all dead from a bad battery, figured i'd check on this venture before ordering new ones. Thanks friend.
