If you buy another brand and get the same results, you'll have just lost time and comfort.
When I bought my TST system, the rep learned that I was new to TPMS and programmed each sensor for me, so they were plug and play when they arrived.
Have you called the manufacturer yet?
I'm not buying another brand until I educate myself on the different systems available. I bought this one because it was on sale, pure and simple. I admit that was my mistake, I did not know enough about the product to know whether it was what I wanted or not.
As far as "educating myself", I have been pretty successful so far in life following directions provided with the product I choose to set up, or if I could not, then finding someone to help me, whether it be the manufacturer or someone I know with more knowledge than me. I built one airplane from scratch, and one kit, and both flew successfully and safely. I know what I know, and I know when to ask for help.
The product did not work as it should, woke us up in the middle of the night twice because it was not working correctly. if you read my post on the problems I had I think that is fairly evident.
I only bothered to post here because I wanted to share my experience with the system. I wasn't asking for help with my problems. I generally don't ask for help on forums because you never know what the experience level is, or validity of the knowledge of the other forum members. If I ask for help, I will call the manufacturer or a person or service facility that is familiar with my equipment.
If you and others choose to believe my problems are because operator error rather than equipment malfuction, that is your right. And I will admit they are insofar as I bought this system without doing prior research.
