When you drive away, in toad or coach, with out the other vehicle it takes about 20 mins before it starts beeping for lost signal. You can watch the pressure and temp change on the tires of which ever vehicle you in, the other sensors read outs do not change till it realizes their no longer there. If you shut the unit off then restart it, it will only give readouts upon the sensors it detects. No more beeping.

If you slowly unscrew on of the sensors, to simulate a leak, it picks up the sudden pressure change quickly and the alarm sounds.


Overall I'm happy with my choice.

I don't remember enough to tell you how but by pushing two buttons you can turn off the monitor system for the toad, then just click them back on when you want, really simple I just have not done it enough to tell you exactly how to do it off the top of my head.

I'll practice, I'm seem to be pretty good at pushing buttons.

Glad you like your system. I also have the TST system. One of things I don't like is 'the constant scrolling' of air pressure and temperature readings for each tire. Really quite an annoyance for me. Also when I replaced the batteries on my sensors, I have 12 of them, had trouble with three out of 12 plus two with leakage problems. No ax to grind with TST, just if I had to do over again I would have gone with the sensors without replaceable battery.

I have been using the TST 507's for 2 years and would buy them again. They work very well and the peace of mind from knowing pressures at a glance is worth the price of admission. Additionally, not having to manually check the pressures every morning saves considerable time and effort. I had one that kept losing continuity, but one call to the company and they sent a new one immediately. Reliability and standing behind their product is hard to come by these days.

That's the feature I like best.

Yep! That was the reason for my post. Different strokes for different folks. Funny what you like best, I like least. Still a good system though.
