New retro-fit device monitors tyre pressures on the move

Apr 04, 2016

Snooper, a leading supplier of GPS satellite navigation and speed detector systems, has recently launched the Tyre Pilot STP1400, a retro-fit device that continuously monitors a car or small van’s tyre pressures. The unit is simple to install and use and requires no wiring. Special monitoring sensors are fitted in place of the dust-caps on the tyre valves and are connected via Bluetooth to an LCD plugged into the cigarette lighter socket.  

The Tyre Pilot STP1400 sends an audible alert to the driver when it senses significant changes in tyre pressures and temperatures, usually the first sign of trouble. It can also identify the potential danger of an impending flat tyre by detecting a slow puncture. The driver can check the vehicle’s tyre pressures from the display at any time to the nearest 1.5 PSI, improving tyre life and performance. 

The device will monitor up to four wheels simultaneously and automatically enters sleep-mode to save energy when the vehicle is not in motion.
