Overview

Our take on the Garmin Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor

Let's be honest: tire pressure's a pretty big deal for motorcycle riders. Garmin's Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor works with your zumo navigator to let you track your tire pressure. You'll need one sensor for each tire on your motorcycle or ATV, and your zumo will track up to four tires in any configuration. The sensor is not designed for automotive use or for tires with non-metal valve stems.

Let's be honest: tire pressure's a pretty big deal for motorcycle riders. Garmin's Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor works with your zumo navigator to let you track your tire pressure.

Garmin Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor

See each tire's pressure on your zumo's display

Just pair the sensor with your zumo, then screw the sensor onto your tire's metal valve stem. ANT wireless technology lets you see each sensor reading on your zumo's screen as you ride. You can set custom pressure thresholds and have the navigator alert you when the pressure changes. You can even track pressure trends over time, so you can spot a slow leak before it becomes a bigger problem.

The sensor is powered by a single replaceable battery with up to 18 months of life. Battery life is preserved when you're not rolling, and the sensor engages when your bike starts to move.

Priced each

Put it on my motorcycle. Works great with the Zumo 590. Helped me discover the tire pressure changes 5lbs when I ride from Colorado (5000 elev) down to sea level in Oregon! (and yes, it went back up when I got back home! :))

Pros: Easy to install and set up in the Garmin

Cons: Don't know if it's a con necessarily, but you need to get fully metal stems for your motorcycle or truck. I'm talking the ones that bolt in from the inside of the rim. They're only $5 but you need to get inside the tire to install. I've read about guys who put them on the rubber mounted ones and had a stem failure.

Next generation product!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I put these little babies on my 2009 Harley Ultra Classic. My Garmin 590 was able to simply connect with them. They keep me informed instantaneously about my tire pressure.

Pros: Quick check of safe level of tire pressure.

Cons: These make me conscious of tire pressure and I spend quite a bit of time trying to get it "perfect". It has caused me more work- BUT ALSO just might prevent a disaster, ALSO- These don't come as a pair- they are sold as EACHES so be prepared to buy 2 for a bike or four for your car..

Great TPMS product

Features

Overview: The Garmin Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor (TPMS) lets you monitor your motorcycle's tire pressure as you travel. The sensor transmits the tire's air pressure wirelessly to the zūmo navigation device (zūmo 390LM, zūmo 395LM, zūmo 590LM, or zūmo 595LM). One TPMS sensor is required for each tire (sold individually), and should be used with metal valve stems only.

ANT Network: The Garmin Tire Pressure Monitor System operates on ANT technology, a proprietary wireless sensor network that operates in the ISM (industrial, scientific, and medical) band of the 2.4 GHz spectrum. Each sensor transmits the tire pressure data wirelessly to the zūmo unit, where it is displayed in real time. Transmitting range is approximately 6.6 feet.

Configuration: The Tire Pressure Monitor System works with up to 4 tires in any configuration. There are four numbered stickers included with the sensor to affix to the sensor cap to identify the tire being monitored. In the menu of the zūmo, you can choose from the following vehicle types: 2-wheeled motorcycle, 3-wheeled motorcycle (1 front, 2 rear), 3-wheeled motorcycle (2 front, 1 rear), 3 wheels (motorcycle with sidecar), or 4 wheels (2 front, 2 rear).

Note: The TPMS system is not intended for automotive use.

Pairing With zūmo Device: Prior to traveling, you will need to set up the monitoring system with the zūmo, which includes pairing each sensor individually with the device. Once you have entered the vehicle type and number of wheels, the device will guide you in pairing the sensors. The battery should be removed from each sensor until it is ready to be paired to the device.

Alerts: During the pairing procedure, you will be prompted to enter the recommended and minimum tire pressure for each tire. The zūmo will trigger a low pressure alert when a sensor reports a tire pressure lower than the entered minimum pressure. The device will also report a low sensor battery or a non-connected sensor.

Power Requirements: The TPMS is powered by a single 3-volt BR1225 Lithium coin cell battery. A single battery may last up to 300 hours of run time, depending upon individual use. The sensor has a low-power mode, which begins after a short period of time without detecting movement. Once movement is detected, the sensor "wakes up" and begins transmitting data again after about 30 seconds.

Waterproof: The Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor is built for extreme conditions. It can withstand temperatures from 14° to 140°F, and is IPX7-certified for water resistance.

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Compatible with gps I bought from you [ ARTIE  Aug 07, 2016 ]
Because I want to be able to monitor air pressure on my bike [ Christopher  May 31, 2016 ]
I ride 20 to 30 thousand miles per year and have learned the hard way of pre-mature wear on tires. There are other TPMS systems out there but have used Garmin equipment ( and others) for many years and Garmin has not let me down. Only downside of transmitters is battery availability. Some battery shops have them but being an odd duck they dont sell quick enough to be fresh. So I have to order online for blister pack that has date on the pack. No biggy, change out begining of each summer. [ Luc  May 08, 2016 ]
Read good reviews for the product working with my Zumo 390. Taking 15 day x-country trip. Want to know quickly each morning prior to departure that both tire's air pressure is good. [ John  Apr 20, 2016 ]

1 question already asked

There is only one sensor per package,, BUT the Garmin 590 will monitor UP to 4 of these sensors at same time [ Julian P.  Jul 20, 2015 ]
They are sold as singles. [ Mark  Jul 18, 2015 ]
