    I use this cheap device alone.
    It will be good if anyone could make an USB interface.

    Does anybody know how those sensors are powered? The ones inside the tire that is.
    Also, I noticed that the ebay auction included counterweights for the sensors. Does that mean that if I use the sensors, I'll have to have the ugly counter-weights on the outside of my rims?

    Would certainly have to be small battery powered like the aa/aaa, they prob dont draw that much power by the look of em...

    About the counter balance....ANY time you add weight to one side of a wheel you should counter balance it...no matter how small you think the weight is. If you don't you will run into a few problems either immediately or down the road some miles...

    I've tried this one too, with this i made my first prototype, but I've had to discard this because these sensors cause a lot of problems with the counter balance.
