    Hi all

    Just got a Tyrepal tyre pressure monitor kit and here I am sat in the drivers seat planning (and wondering) where to fit the monitor?

    It comes with a windscreen mount sucker or with a base fixing with screws.

    I've already got a dash cam (window sucker mounted) and a sat nav (again window sucker mounted) and didn't want anything else on the screen (getting to be a space ship and no room to see out)
    So considering the screw fix mount.
    Location will determine where another power supply socket will go nearby!

    Has anyone got a Tyrepal or similar make and if so, where have you fit your monitor?
    Photos would also be a great help but not as important as a reply

    My monitor is just on a small sticky pad on the dash so that I can move it at will.

    Does yours turn itself on and off as I thought it was supposed to (vibration sensitive)? Mine doesn't, it has to be manually switched on and off. No problem (unlike the TINY display) so long as I remember to do it.

    Bobpalt: I have had mine hard wired into the vans engine electrics. It only displays once there has been some movement in the van, and therefore it is 'asleep' when I'm not in the van. I don't need to do anything with it.

    Mine is attached by Velcro to the Sun visor of my rear view monitor. No power supply needed as the battery lasts for weeks. Just recharge when needs be.

    Enjoy Andy
    I've just travelled down the M606 to M62 and although very heavy traffic, it is all moving.

    I looked to see what's available within a 90min drive for this weekend and can't get in anywhere - left it too late
