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 390LM navigation device. One TPMS sensor is required for each tire, 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 390LM, 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 390LM, 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 390LM, 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 390LM 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
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.
