The Perodua GearUp Smart Bluetooth TPMS comprises of four individual tyre sensors and an in-car device. The tyre sensors are screwed on to each tyre valve, replacing the valve caps that transmit tyre pressure information via Bluetooth to the in-car device.
The in-car device has four lights that represents the four tyres of the vehicles, lighting up and beeping when the pressure of any tyres falls below the 8% of the recommended values.
To prevent the tyre sensors from being stolen, a lock nut spanner is included to lock the tyre sensors. Also, the in-car device features a built-in motion sensor that automatically sends the device into sleep mode when no motion is detected. All of the tyre sensors are powered by coin-cell batteries while the in-car device is powered by two AA-sized batteries, all of which are included in the package.
