hey GS Jim: I tried my EL-50448 and got nothing.  It would not wake up my TMPS.  My TPMS are ok when riding.  Maybe it is user error on my part.  Hey Kardano: I do not think we can calibrate our TMPS.  They are factory set.  They are not extremely accurate but just give a ballpark PSI.  I live in the mountains so my readings are lower by 3-4 psi.  As the tires heat up the PSI can rise 3-4 degrees

My VXDAS EL-50448 (for GM) works fine with my sensors, it seems the "Ford version" do not.

Thanks Karado.  That is the unit I have.  When you use yours does your TMPS readout on your bike display...does it read tire pressure or stay blank?  Mine stays blank until i ride the bike for 2-3 blocks

Sorry to hear your wake up tool is not working Navy but just to clarify, did you try a new battery in it, does the green light flash when you hold the button or the red, are you holding it at the labelled area on the rim with bike ignition on? Also I find I have to hold the button for a while sometimes, like 30 seconds or so.
I have found the readings to be very close to my calibrated gauge  but on three different bikes the readings do vary by about 0.1 bar.
Although the readings are temperature (20 c) they are not altitude compensated so if you set them at sea level and go up to say 2,000 meters you can get a change of maybe 0.3 bar but if you set them at high altitude they will show the correct pressure at that height as the reading is just the difference in the external and internal pressures.
While I am writing this I see other posts coming in so to respond to the latest the reading on your bike stays blank till the centrifugal switch is activated at about 30 kph (or the wake up tool wakes it up).
I believe the Ford unit is EL-50449

I've a BMW R1200RT 2011. Start engine, the pressure digits are blank, after riding for 15 seconds digits show the value. With EL-50448 i can wake up the sensors and read the two values only with the ignition on and motorcycle on the stand.

After a full year of test: The 2032 seems to perform best. The 2050 does not work at all when the outdoor temp gets below 50 degrees F.  When it warms up to 65-ish F it seems to start working again

What do you like the most about the 2032?

Actually i found one of my soldered wires broke and was sometimes connecting and sometimes not.  I think the 2050 battery will last much longer, more like the OEM battery.  The 2032 battery is easier to install as it already has wires connected and is wrapped with the yellow protection.  My 2050 battery is working after I repaired the wire.

I have a EL-50448, wake up tool. Paid $10, with shipping. Works every time on my K1300 GT.
