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
395LM, zūmo 590LM, or
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
Note: The TPMS system is not intended for
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.
