An internal pressure sensor is always better than external, have a look at CareUD U912. I have got the same.

How long you are using them. what about the performance?
Where did you buy them and cost?

Thanks for the reference mjumrani. In my opinion, from the information I gained from the posts in TBHP, both of them have advantages and disadvantages and it is a question of what is the users' convenience and priority.

Internal sensors are a bit difficult to install and replace. In case, battery goes down, or sensors go kaput, the whole tire has to be removed to replace the sensor.
External sensors are prone to threats like thefts are petrol bunks, long time parking etc

Both of them have no major differences in terms of battery life, sensor life, or Display unit life

So, I am thinking to go with external sensors and taking a risk ! !

If I can suggest, please get the internal ones.

IMO, it is a single time install and no tension of theft too. Plus after rotation re-learning is easier and one doesn't need to remove the sensors and re-fit them when going for wheel alignment job or parking at malls, etc.

Most sensors available are more or less reliable so the worry of it going bad is less unless the wheel hits a pothole pretty hard.

A member here has already installed the exact same model i quoted earlier. Display unit sits on dashboard hardwired to the fuses. Sensors have battery which are user replaceable. According to interweb reviews the battery lasts 2 years. Installing them is quite easy , just remove the existing valve and use the valve which comes with the product.

Please do not buy Blaupunkt TPMS. Within few days the front of display unit came off the charger while removing from socket. Rs. 13990/- gone waste. I regret recommending it in New Fortuner thread. . I have now bought Roger Motor TPMS and installed on fortuner.

Advantages of Roger TPMS over Blaupunkt TPMS:

1. Much brighter display.

2. Display angle can be changed to suit driving position and location of cigarette lighter socket.

3. Sensor smaller and less conspicuous.

4. Display starts when vehicle moves - saving on battery in sensors.

5. 2 years replacement warrantee from Rajkot seller.

6. Displays temperature also.(in centigrade)

7. Cost Rs. 7600/- including delivery.

Negatives:

1. Roger TPMS did not include little rubber flaps to cover angle between tire nozzle and the sensor.
