The Valor system looks spendy enough that I'd still hack my own instead of buying theirs..
ive thought about doing exactly that.. building one.. then I found there are quite a few online so I may not roll my own.. esp since some of them have RS232 ports on them so I can keep Techie-Geek theme going in my Bus...
I found one PressurePro system on amazon for 4 wheels .. it is a little less eye candy for the screen but goes for $350.. you need 2 more sensors at $50 each for 6 wheels.... the disadvantage to the Valor is that you have to have the tires dismounted and remounted to install it.. so that adds a lot of spendy.. whereas something like PressurePro is screw on sensors right on your valve stem so they are less pricey..
the upscale version of the pressurepro is spendy..(pressurepro pulse).. it is $700 complete for 6 tires.. its more commercial.. does data logging and has RS232 port..
they do sell an embedded board for DIY projects..
