Considering a TPMS

I have been considering a TPMS for some time now but just haven't been able to make the commitment do to the price. Well I have finally decided to make the commitment and I have been seriously looking at the TST 510 system. I have a few questions and I'm hopping people on here could help me.

First off I know there are a lot of you on here that are using the TST 507 but is anyone using the TST 510?

Second, if you do have the 510 did you have to use the long antenna or a repeater? For you that use the 507 (I don't think this one comes with the longer antenna), did you have to use a repeater?

Thanks for any help!

Thanks for the info. That is one I have looked at but more interested in the TST 510.

I have the 507. Wondering why you are thinking of the 510? I can't off hand remember what the difference is between them?

I have the 507 without a repeater and no loss of signal in 4000+ miles.

The 507 has user replaceable batteries, 510 has to be returned to mfg. for replacement. I'm well satisfied with the 507.

I have a 40' 5er behind a long bed crew cab & no repeater needed with the 507. Been using it for 4 1/2 years & 40-60k miles & have only replaced 5-6 of the 10 batteries which are user replaceable.

I have the 507 and same size trailer as you, and no repeater needed. I am very satisfied with it. Just changed the batteries on it the other day in prep for a long trip. Easy to do, cost around $20 for all 4.

Thanks for all the replies, I do appreciate it! From your replies and from what I have read on other forums it sounds like I might need the repeater which makes the purchase a little less expensive.

Lloyd, as for the difference like Russb said the 510 sensors batteries are not user replaceable but are suppose to have a life of 5 years plus. The screen is a little different and it comes with an extension antenna that can be located farther to the back of the truck to help with reception instead of purchasing a repeater.

I have not ruled out using the 507, the one thing that I am weighing out is the cost between the two. I have been able to find the 510 with 8 no pass thru sensors for about $40.00 less than the 507 with 8 no pass thru sensors. Both of them have all the same features it just comes down to cost and which would be cheaper in the long run. And after doing some figuring last night even with the higher initial cost the 507 would probably be the most cost effective over time. The one thing I was concerned about was having to purchase the repeater. And the majority of the people I have heard from that are using the TST brand be it the 507 or 510 have said they didn't need the repeater.

I ordered the 507 and thought I ordered the non-pass through, but I got the pass through. So don't be like me and accidentally order the wrong one. Triple check your order.
