Garmin Zumo Tire Pressure Monitor
Technology that actually makes life easier.
How many times have I remembered to check my tyre pressures 2 miles down the road from filling up? How many times have I cursed getting down on all fours in full riding gear to measure and read tyre pressures? How many times have I wondered if the wobbly feeling is me or the tyres? Well, never again with this little trick from Garmin.
The gadget sends a reading to the Zumo when the wheel turns, so before each ride I spin the wheels (on the centre stand) once or twice and bingo, I have tyre pressure on my screen before I ride. Once moving the display is constant while you're in the relevant app. I like this toy, it adds safety and convenience.

Easy to pair easy to install, sometimes takes a min or two riding to get a reading,
A little pricey and often have to start riding to get system to communicate for readings, (should be instant anytime. Overall cool toy to have nice to just push a button and see everything is okay.

Great product--fast shipping!
First and foremost the product was shipped and arrived quickly and performs as advertised with my Zumo 590. I was surprised that the sensors are much smaller than I imagined from the picture--which is a good thing. You can barely see them on my Can Am Spyder. However, you need to make sure you have metal valve stems. I wouldn't use any motorcycle TPMS sensor on rubber valve stems and the manufacture goes through a lot of trouble to warn you of this. Lastly, and the only negative about this shipment, which I am not inclined to reduce my rating; but two days after use, one of the sensor started to read "low battery". Could have just been a fluke. So I decided to change all of the batteries at the same time. I am happy with the performance of these items and it is easy to know the tire pressure without having to stop and check. By the way, these sensors (at least mine) are accurate and to preserve battery power they shut down when parked, then reactivate when rolling! Gives you a real sense of security when riding knowing what your actual pressure is without having to use gauges. Best security I've ever purchased for my cycle.

Haven't gotten these to consistently work since first purchased!
I'll start off by saying Garmin support has been very good to deal with, offering to replace various (poorly designed/mfr) bits and pieces, however, I haven't got these to work since I bought them in April. Initially it was the rear that crapped out, and Garmin sent a replacement, no questions asked. But on my 11k mile ride to Alaska this summer, when I really needed these to function, forget it, both operated intermittently (barely) the entire trip, and have continued this way since returning. Just called Garmin again to complain (or ask for my $$$ back), and their response is to replace my 590 (still under warranty)! What's interesting is I thought, maybe, just maybe it's battery related, and when I tried to p/u new batteries, Batteries Plus says the ones in the sensors have been discontinued, and this is when I realized they don't even fit snugly in the unit, so maybe it's a case of the sensors loosing charge b/c of the poor battery connection, hence operating intermittently...hope to report more after Garmin sends a new 590....what a cluster!

Intermittant display and no tech help
What has happened to me and others, using the 590 with these, is the rear wheel sensor is intermittent. We have confirmed it isn't the sensor but apparently a software issue. We have sent Garmin files of info they requested, April 2015, and there has been no response.
I recommend that if your rear is intermittent you get your money back because you will not be able to use the rear one. If it works then be grateful.

These caps send a signal with the tyre pressure to the GARMIN ZUMO GPS. It`s a nice gadget to have on a motorcycle, specially when you travel. Works just fine, no problems to set up, easy and fast.
