    I've been using these for a couple of years. They work great and trouble free.

    Is it possible to use de Fobo together with a bluetooth headset like a Cardo of a Sena

    I was tempted by the Michelin version. But there wasn't any reviews for the bike ones and the reviews for the car type weren't great, usually because battery went in the cap and can't be replaced. My other concern was that it updates every 15 seconds. Not sure how that compares to the BMW version, but is 15 seconds enough to alert you that you have a puncture? I was following a friend on a GS and he got a blow out, he was alerted in time by the dash to pull over before tyre fully deflated and we hit the next bend. Maybe it is enough, don't know how often the BMW one updates.

    If it got some good reviews I would think about buying them. If I had hit whatever burst my friends tyre I  might have been at the next bend before I knew about it??

    Its Bluetooth to your phone so I would imagine if your phone is Bluetooth to your headset you would get the alarm. Can't see why you wouldn't. You might like to email Fobo and confirm.

    Many of us in our MC using those and pretty much happy with them:
    battery powered - no need 12v, charge via USB

    12v powered

    been using this for 3+ years without any problems.
    most of the bolt on tpms sensors have replaceable CR1632 battery which lasts for a year

    for bolt on TPMS sensors I'm using T-valves coz I'm lazy, works great with crosstourer's rims:


    p.s.: bluetooth sensors draining too much battery themselves, and phone battery too.

    There are a few reports of the Michelin units falling off as they are magnetic but other reviews are positive. I recently fitted the following unit from Amazon. Nice bit of kit, works well.
