Do you guys notice that the car doesn't have tire pressure indicators??? What? New car. Last week I have to guess which tire was low. A brand new car...

Neither does the RAV4.
I have a digital tire guage and check at least once a month. And after the dealer does a tire rotation. The dealer always let out the air I put in.

Personally, I don't care if the tire pressure is not available on the information center.
Hence - I check tires on a monthly basis regardless. I got analog gauges in both the C-HR and my RAV4.

Just fire up my pancake air compressor attach digital gauge/filler and go - reminds me - I need to do that this week. I need to check my PWC trailer tires as well.

I got this one:

Right.... I do the same with all my cars. I believe it is more of a "user preference" or convenience for some as not everyone has the gauge readily available or a compressor.

Hummm that's kind of weird. Mine is 1.1.66(66) as well.... not sure..

Other than my vehicle being a C-HR 2019, don't see any other difference....

Would you uninstall and reinstall it?

Yoyo, I uninstalled and reinstalled. No change in app menus. Probably the 2018 didn't have the same system as yours and individual tire pressures can't be read out. That probably made it difficult for the dealership in the 2018 model, so they added the individual read out capability in 2019. Anybody else out there with knowledge of the 2018 TPM system have any input on this?

Sorry to hear that. Let me do some research. Do you know if your car has connected-services? ( when checking the connected-services support, the 2018 C-HR is not listed-see below)

Yoyo, I have no idea what connected services are. I've never even heard the term before, but I'll check it out. It's got whatever came standard with the XLE Premium trim. Based on what I see on your screenshot, it doesn't look like Connected Services were available on the 2018 model.

I agree it sucks, along with not having auto-locking doors like everything else does.

At least it has a low TPMS system in case of emergencies. However, I will likely install a $50 aftermarket TPMS, it uses sensors that screw on the valve stem tip, replacing the stock dust caps. I have them on my other older vehicles, they are super accurate and not only indicate the individual tire pressures but also their temps. They are wireless, takes about 3 minutes to install and the head unit is solar powered. Best bang for your buck in the world of car accessories. Easy to install, accurate, non-intrusive and completely wireless.
