well i guess this's a stand alone kit
The one that robby refers to is supposed to be standalone, he has just made a bit of electronics that intercepts the signals and connects to the PC's USB. (he's also done the necessary software).
Or maybe possible to do the same to your one.
Since the stems/sensors are color coded, anyway to use colors instead of sensor number w/ the option to use those labels in the skin?
It'll make moving sensors around less...annoying...trying to remember which sensor number is associated w/ a color. (i.e. rotating tires)
That was a real PITA w/ my SmartTire system. Always had to keep a list of which sensor was which color and the tire location.
There isn't any reference at the sensor number in the skin.
Perhaps are you talking about the section "Sensor location" in the config utility?
On top of that, a label could be added/created w/ the plugin so you can see in the skin which color sensor is associated with a specific tire for quick verification so you don't have to keep opening the config utility all the time.
It's a good idea, I will give a look in it after the 26st because the next week I will be traveling in Spain.
In the config app, make so you have 5 sections, numbered 1-5, and then you can assign a sensor to each number. Then, next to each wheel on the car diagram, instead of 'learn' just make a little drop down combo box, and select the sensor 1-5. That way when you rotate tires, just gotta open the config and change which sensor number is at each wheel.
Or instead of sensor numbers, you could do it by the colors on the sensors themselves =]
The "Learn" button can't be replaced by the drop down lists, but it's posible to move the 5 drop down lists near each buttons.
Why cant it be replaced? Certainly you can move the learn buttons over to the side, next to the numbers 1-5 (or colors) for each sensor (in my suggestion above), and just have the drop downs by the car diagram, right?
