What is the best dash mount tire monitor?

I was just wondering which tire minder/monitor that you are using. Do they monitor tire pressure and temp well?
I will need to monitor six tires.
Thanks in advance for your feedback.

So nobody out there is using a tire monitor inside your tow vechicle? With those China bomb tires that Dutchmen uses, I would think it would be a must have. I just got my Dutchmen and will be purchasing one soon.

According to my husband we use a TST 507, it monitors pressure and temperature and has an alarm if it goes outside the range you set. It also gives you an alarm if the pressure drops fast. It has replacement batteries and the monitors light enough that you don't need the steel valve stems, but he still recommends them.

New inventions are sometimes great! Never thought about this one. Like I said elsewhere, 5'ers tow well even with a flat. Tires like this one from a previous 5'er are hard on the wheel well flairs and might have been prevented by a monitor!

I'm a dealer for the HawksHead Systems, really great product! I'm in the same boat as you, with some of today's tires being made in China I personally like to know what the pressure and temperature of each tire. Just go to my website and you'll see all the information about them. Welcome to digitalsolutions709.ca

Thanks arcabuddy. How does your system compare to the TST 507?

I'm not familiar with that brand waytoogood, I don't like where the buttons are placed as compared to the HawksHead unit and that ugly antenna sticking out from the side on the TST 507 doesn't look good and looks like it would be easy to break off. Just my opinion of course!

Thanks
