A couple of months ago, we covered the Papago Dash Cam and fell in love with the different functionality we found available within the camera. We mentioned that the dash cam actually had the ability to interact with the Papago TireSafe TPMS product. What in the world does TPMS mean? It stand for Tire Pressure Monitoring System. Essentially, these sensors allow you to track the performance of each tire on your vehicle. You can see the temperature in each tire along with a constant feed of the PSI in each tire. All of this data funnels into the dash cam so you have everything displaying in one convenient location.
Papago actually sent us a free demo to try out and we put it on a 2013 Ford F-150. Since we live out in Kansas and have some fields readily available to do some off-roading, we figured it would be the best test for the TireSafe product. Installing the TPMS system was super easy. Basically if you can replace your tire caps and then sync the sensors to the Dash cam, you can have the monitoring system setup in a matter of minutes. It was interesting to watch the tire pressure and temperature change as we switched from a concrete street to a very bumpy field.
We suggest that if your vehicle doesn’t already have some kind of tire pressure monitoring system, you should think about getting these. We also suggest that if you’re getting a Papago Dash Cam that is compliant with the TireSafe system, you should pony up and get it too. The handy display and ability to easily set up the sensors made us love the product. Click here for purchase information.
