- Full Description
Tyre defects contribute to over 3% of all motorway accidents and are the most common form of fault directly contributing to a vehicle incident. Protect yourself and your passengers with ‘Tyre Pilot’ from Snooper, a simple to install, accurate, tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS).
Economic and Safety Benefits.
Tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) are becoming more and more popular due to the economic and safety benefits they provide. Knowing the pressure of your vehicle’s tyres will save you money and reduce the chances of a blow-out or puncture. With a choice of two monitoring systems, a standalone unit or Bluetooth device connecting directly to your Snooper Sat Nav, ‘Tyre Pilot’ from Snooper will allow every driver to benefit from tyre pressure monitoring.
Tyre Pressure Monitoring:- The Benefits.
Reduced fuel consumption.
Improving tyre life and wear.
Increased vehicle safety.
Save Money and the Environment with Tyre Pilot.
Over recent years the cost of fuel has risen dramatically and driving your vehicle, even for short distances has become an expensive chore. By ensuring your tyres are fully inflated, Tyre Pilot can reduce your fuel bill by as much as 10%, saving you money whilst reducing your impact on the environment.
Improving Tyre Life and Wear.
Tyre Pilot will quickly prove invaluable to any driver. By using Tyre Pilot to monitor and check that your vehicles tyres are correctly inflated, naturally extending their lifespan. Correctly inflated tyres can increase the life of your tyre tread by as much as 35%, saving you money and time with less visits to your local tyre centre.
Increased Road Safety.
Tyres are the most common form of vehicle fault directly contributing to an accident. Correctly inflated tyres will provide greater stability, better handling and consistent braking for drivers, significantly improving safety. Tyres that are under-inflated are increasingly prone to skidding under braking and in wet conditions hydroplane more easily. Keep your tyre pressures monitored with Tyre Pilot and reduce the potential for accidents.
Tyre Pilot By Snooper - The Options
Choice of Options.
Tyre Pilot from Snooper is available in two options, a standalone device with built-in rechargeable battery, which can be easily mounted using the windscreen bracket provided or a Bluetooth transmitter displaying tyre pressure data directly through your Snooper Sat Nav. (STP1600 - STP1800)
Tyre Pilot STP116.
This device is a standalone PND device, measuring pressures up to PSI 116 and providing instant alerts to pressure drops and temperature rises The device comes with 2 tyre pressure sensors ideal for cars, but you can upgrade to extra sensors for monitoring your trailer tyre pressures or caravan.
PSI 116 or 188 monitoring?
Depending on the type of vehicle driven, Tyre Pilot can monitor tyre pressure up to 116 PSI / 8 Bar or 188 PSI / 13 Bar. PSI 116 is recommended for cars, caravans, smaller motorhomes and light commercial vehicles, PSI 188 is for larger or heavy duty vehicles including bigger motorhomes, coaches, buses, HGV and All Terrain Vehicles. Please check your tyre maximum PSI to ensure the correct purchase. The PSI can be found either on the side wall of your tyre or on the model information panel.
Easy to Fit Installation.
Tyre Pilot has been designed to easily fit almost any tyre pressure valve stem. There are no complicated wires to install or any specialist tools required. Simply fix the Tyre Pilot sensors to your tyre pressure valve stem, install the standalone display using the windscreen bracket included and charge via your vehicles cigarette lighter socket. Once the sensors have been paired with the display, your tyre pressures and temperatures will automatically be shown on the Tyre Pilot display. The display will run on battery for approximately 1 month between charges during normal use.
Tyre Pilot's tyre pressure monitoring sensors are rigorously tested to ensure they work seamlessly in any weather conditions.
Once your vehicle is in motion, Tyre Pilot sensors will send tyre pressure and temperature data to your device every 5 minutes. Keep a check on any pressure drops or increases in temperature for added safety.
As well as displaying the pressure of your vehicles tyres, Tyre Pilot can also display the temperature, alerting you quickly to any rises that can indicate potential tyre failure.
Monitor and Sensor Sleep Mode.
If your vehicle does not move for 10 minutes, Tyre Pilot will enter sleep mode to save battery life and power. Once your vehicle moves again, your monitor will automatically switch to standby mode again.
