TireTracker vs. TireMinder

What is the difference between the TireTracker and the TireMinder tire monitor systems. Both look identical but seem to be manufactured by different companies. I like the small sending units-fit the holes in my rims.
Any input about the two systems would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I have the tm 66 tireminder and I stopped using it since all it does is give incorrect readings and warnings...

too late for me to return it to Camping World after the TM company said they'd fix it up and took 30 days to respond.

just trying to save you the $300 dollars I threw away

That's what I've heard from some people and there are not distributors in the Phoenix area except CW. Trying to order online and their web site says no systems available at this time. Will go to the Tiffin rally in Casa Grande middle of April and look at the TireTracker system. Probably buy at the show and get a discount.

tireminder, tiretraker and hawkshead are an identical thing, made by the very same manufacturer in china. the only difference is the "name".

i have used it on my rig and the toad since 2012, no issues. a few reminders:
1) the battery in the signal sender must be 3.0v or higher. if you lose signal, check battery first.
2) make sure the rubber o-ring on the signal sender is not broken. tire minder offers free battery and o-ring for 3 years.
3) for 40 ft or longer rigs, a signal booster may be needed. installing it in the bathroom or another midship location is recommended.

i found mine is sensitive, accurate and does the job well. it saved me big on overheat in denver two years ago. if yours is less than satisfactory, call tireminder, they are very helpful.

best of luck!!

X2. I also have a TM digital tire gauge and I must admit they differ by 3-5 pounds. TM told me the digital gauge is the more accurate. So I guess they don't expect real precision from the remote sensors.

I recently installed the TireMinder A1A-6 in my coach and it seems to work just fine. I have noticed that individual tire pressures and temperatures on can vary significantly throughout the day. However, if I check the readings early in the morning before the sun has been out too long the psi readings on all six tires are nearly the same, and their temperature readings are as well.

What tire monitors would you recommend. The comments I hear about tire monitors are they are not accurate and the numbers are all over the board and not helpful. Any thoughts?

Even though the remote readings are not that accurate, I still find the TM worth having because it still gives you an alarm for rapid air loss and excessive heat.

The TireMinder sensors have a 3% accuracy. Generally, a digital gauge is fairly accurate, so if you assume that it is, at 100 lbs, your sensors are off as much as 3 lbs above or below actual pressure. The concept isn't that you want the exact pressure at any given time, but rather you want to see trends of decreasing pressure, sudden pressure loss, or a slow leak. I know that my sensors tend to read about 3-4 lbs high (I use 105 lbs in my tires). I'm not worried about a pound or two...it's the change I want to know about.

I have had the Tireminder for 3 years and have been very pleased with how it works and the customer support. It saved me on one occasion.

Have the TireMinder. Has saved a tag tire IMO. Early warning of tire pressure loss.

Excellent after sales service and support.

Does not matter what you purchase as long as you have one.
