Thread: FOBO Bluetooth Tyre Pressure sensors

    FOBO Bluetooth Tyre Pressure sensors

    Hi Fellow BMW Hex and Cam heads,

    I have just been reviewing the FOBO Tyre Pressure sensors for bike riders. Have any of you got these on-board and what do you think?? Are they the value that youtube is telling me??

    My research is telling me to get the T Valves as well. Do these combinations (T Valve and FOBO caps) clear all the brake assembly. And to cover all bases any wheel imbalance experienced??

    I look forward to your experience!

    Kind regards

    Aussie Bob

    Awesome Bob -

    This is the only thread I could find which mentions the FOBO product:

    I have the mobletron system that is talked about in the above thread and I like it a lot. The display is easy to read and the sensors are inside the tire so they give you temperature and pressure. I would recommend the Mobletron system.

    Just my 2 cents

    I've used the FOBO system on my RT for about 20k miles and love it. I love how it stays in touch with the app as long as you leave bluetooth on (I'll sometimes get a ding on my phone in the bedroom when the tire pressure reads low at night from the cold temps). They seem pretty accurate and most importantly they let you know your tires have pressure without manually checking them or having to ride for a while before they give you a readout (like most TPMS).

    I'm not sure about the T-Valves. The RT has a sideways metal valve in the front and I put an angled metal valve in the back and the FOBO has plenty of clearance.
    Current rides:
    2013 R1200RT 90th - "Tyr" - 85k miles
    2012 R1200GS Rallye - "Carl" - 2500 miles
    Previous BMWs: 2011 R1200RT-P, 2007 R1200S, 2006 R1200RT

    Any chance you can put pictures up of your fobos?
