    I certainly will! Maybe the change in boost pressure that you must get by a few psi even when cruising will keep it awake? You can get some “stationary” tpms systems that stay on all the time but they are a few hundred quid. I was wondering if the sensor could be modified to stay on all the time. We shall see!

    Another option is this http://www.transducersdirect.com/pro...e-transducers/

    Again, not that cheap and needs an app. I don’t think you can see 2 sensors at the same time with those either.
    Maybe but I assume that would then drain the battery?

    No doubt it would. The stationary systems reckon a 9-12months. Even if it was 6 months....that would be ok.

    I’ve no idea if this is going to work but worst case, I have a valve on the boost side that I can connect any tyre pressure type gauge to....and a tpms system to give as a Christmas present

    Endless possibilities.

    - steering pressure ( fairline have pressurised system - but it works fine without Pressure)
    - water accumulator pressure
    - tender pressure

    Sure I have missed a few.

    Interestingly, Garmin do a tyre pressure sensor (£60 each) for use with their vehicle Sat Nav’s. Could they get it to work on their marine gear? Probably.

    I think we should task Vas to come up with a custom sensor to Bluetooth to N2K system so up to say....10 pressure sensors can be viewed

    will be a serious mod to add a car tyre valve on a tender, is there a dedicated low profile solution to that?
    Still think best option will be xmas present

    well, not quite, they don't support anything wireless in their marine kit (in terms of input I mean) and they don't seem to be v.flexible on changing things...

    definitely doable, although I've been hitting on various walls regarding NMEA2000 sentences for sending various info about.
    One being Garmin only do 200psi pressure for the gearbox oil (mine and I guess most shaft driven boats is up to 360...)
    Another, the N2K standard does support without really supporting EGT as on the temp sentences you can only go up to 655-273 C which is not enough... Maretron does their own custom sentence supported only by their kit, so you do get into a bit of a mess.

    Definitely easiest solution seems to be a v.cheap chinese sender for a tenner or so and a gauge or a black box to pass the info into N2K bus
