Garmin is outrageously expensive but got it right including TPMS on GPS display.

Got it so right that TPMS has been deleted from the latest generation.

I have a Michelin tyre pressure monitoring system on mine, the readout is on a small display unit that sits in a base that I have stuck on the steering head nut. The display alternates from front to rear so every time I loook down at the speedo I also see the tyre pressures.

That's a great deal! We have those Gamrin sensors at $68.53. Good luck!

Thanks. So far no good. I think I probably need new batteries for the sensors but I'm finding they as rare as hen's teeth. Seems the BR/CR1225 battery for the sensors is the same popular size used in digital thermometers and given the present state of the world there are none to be had locally. This is one of those things I got burned with ordering online- cheap batteries 6 y/o is what I got. So for now I'll do without.

You guys don't happen to have them, do you?

The BR/CR1225's are hard to find, Garmin I think is the only ones that uses them, everyone else seems to be into the 16mm diameter ones. Order from US sources on ebay, either Panasonic or Energizer, no off-brands. Lithiums are good for 10+ years in storage, should be very close or at 3V as received, provided you don't use a multimeter on "battery" function which adds a load.
With the Garmin sensors, I was concerned the contacts weren't pressing hard enough and it helps to cave in the metal loop a bit to get better contact.

No, we don't have them. Sorry.

Glad you think so, I haven't been able to get any of the 3 sensors nor my Garmin 595 to "do anything". I'm not even sure I have them paired correctly if at all.

More tech to fail when you eventually become dependent on it. A good pressure gauge and T-Clock before each ride and before getting back on after a break.

Ridden wet. Put up hard.

Nearly 4 years. They are sometimes slow to wake. When friend had a flat that we repaired on the road I moved one from my wheel to his then paired his 595. Didn't work as well for him, kept loosing connection. But I often had signal from 50' behind. My 595 is mounted center low on Ram ball on Helibars. His is mounted high right in his face attached to clutch master cylinder.

I usually get a low battery warning before the TPMS cell fails, but not always.
