Great review. Thanks for making effort to do this. Maybe the moderators could put it in a sticky at the top.

One thing I have to add. The EEZ monitor does have a sleep mode. It wakes with any movement detected. This is true at least on mine which I purchased mid-2015.

My tiretracker does have a delay after being turned off for the night. I tested it and found that it can take up to 20 minutes to discover that one sensor is missing. I removed one and drove and this is what I found. Tested it several times. It does have an instant test, by pressing the two right buttons, then it will step through each tire and report the readings. But you have to remember to do it each morning. Yes the manual does say it monitors "continuously" but I found that it still takes time to check each tire after a shutdown.

So is the Tire SafeGuard the only one that is adjustable to your tire gauge? That's a great feature in my opinion.

I'm going with EEZ. I'm hearing all good about it. I also see that on Amazon they have the highest customer review over tst & others -but I am buying direct from their website as the prices are much better direct.

Check out the sale prices on their website. Right now the EEZ TPMS with 10 sensors is $429 & with12 sensors is $499. Call & talk to them.

It appears to me that this Bellacorp TMPS is the same if not identical to the EEZ TPMS only re-branded.

They certainly look VERY similar especially the monitor.

Monitor appears identical. The sensors are definitely different.

I have the Tire Safeguard system. While this system has generally worked well, I don't know that I would buy it again.

The first problem was that my batteries died after about 2 years. The original sensors did not have replaceable batteries. The new sensors were pretty expensive, but that wasn't the worst part. The original sensors had threads made of a material which essentially bonded itself to the threads of the tire valve. I couldn't get them off and ended up having to dismount the tires and have the valves replaced. That was on my toad. I would have been livid if I had to do that with the large ones on my RV. The new version sensors have brass threads. No discount from the factory on the replacements.

The batteries in my new sensors are replaceable. However, the seal leaked on at least one, resulting in internal corrosion.

Also, be careful with sensors if you have used sand or beads inside your tires for balancing. These will probably cause problems.

I strongly suggest that you do purchase a TPMS. Last June I had a blow out on the front passenger tire of my toad. Fortunately, a trucker passed me and motioned me off the road. When stopped, I discovered that I was driving on the rim. The highway patrolman told me that he recently had a toad catch on fire from the flat tire. Needless to say that my next purchase was for a EEEZ system. I am extremely pleased with their quick delivery and customer service. I drove an RV to Alaska and back without a system. My blowout occurred 100 miles from home on a tire with less than 100 miles. When you figure the cost of the TPMS, it is cheap compared to the potential danger and complications of a blow out at 65MPH.
