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.
I've had good luck with Energizer from Amazon, search for B001U1S1IQ, $7.95 for (5).

The BR is longer life than CR.

Markets are flooded with bogus "name brand" lithium coin cells. The above source seems to be legit.

The batteries I ordered from less than 120 miles away are scheduled to arrive on or about May 13th. Amazing......

Get real! You're telling me you go through the whole shebang, including checking tire pressure, after every single stop? No way I'm doing that. I generally check tires once per week or so and plan to keep doing so but on my hands and knees in the pouring rain after stopping for a cuppajoe? Nope.

I check tires at the beginning of the day and then if there's a big elevation or temperature change or if I get paranoid about something. The same reason I didn't get an ES or one with e-suspension. More tech to fail, more costs to suck up or (like some) shine on and sell the bike to some hapless schlub that doesn't know the ignored mess they're inheriting.



But that's me and, as above, YMMV.

Ridden wet. Put up hard.

The instructions for these say to pair with your [compatible] device and says how. I supposedly have a compatible device with the Garmin 595LM. One step is of course is to go to Apps/Tire Pressure & follow the instructions. For the life of me, I could not find that d**n app anywhere. I went through every drop down submenu I could find- no Tire Pressure app.

That is until I discovered what the instructions don't say- the app is available only when in the motorcycling modus operendi. I don't use motorcycling mode. I got led astray way too many times by the motorcycling mode. Even when following a route, the motorcycling mode constantly wanted me to deviate from it. I always have the driving mode selected. All my routes in Base Camp have been converted to the driving mode. When I make a new route it's in the driving mode. I refuse to go back to the clusterf**k of motorcycling mode.

This sux. Anyone want to buy 3 Garmin sensors and 5 new lithium batteries? usd$120 for all of it, shipping CONUS included.
