My carputer is a VoomPC II with front and back panel USB hubs. The front panel hubs are diasy chained to external Logitech premium 4 port hubs. The back panel hub is not in use (I thought).

I had to go into control panel and look the power requirements of each of the hubs on the system. It turned out that my rear panel hub which would allow for a direct connection is actually "hosting" the Sierra Aircard in the nearby pcmcia slot as a USB device and it it drawing the full 500 ma.
Solution was to provide additional power to the external hubs. Once I did that the TPMS device activitated and was recognized properly by XP and the TPMS Doctor program. :boris:
Start Control Panel -> Device Manager -> Universal Serial Bus
You will see many entries, here you are interested in only the ones that specifically say "HUB", i.e. "Generic USB hub" or "USB root hub". Right click on first one and select properties. On the property panel you will see the "Power Tab". You will see Total amount of power available to each port on the hub. Also what is connected, power requirements of the connections, and finally number of ports still available. Repeat for each hub you have installed.
Oooh! Sorry, I had misrepresented your question.

Robby, any chance you can update the plugin for the new RR release.
The battery indicators are not working anymore as the code changed.
Also the parking sensors need updating for the indicators.
Fixed thread title misspelling.
