Does anyone amongst us have advice, experience or opinions on aftermarket tire pressure monitoring systems?

Our regular vehicles (car, truck) were made before TPMS came along, so the only experience I've had with them were on a rental car. (When the idiot light came on, it looked to me like someone's backside seated on a slatted sauna bench. Took awhile to figure out it was was showing a tire going flat.)

Has anyone found them at all useful?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

The TST (Truck Systems Technologies) TPMS system I have installed on my coach and toad has alerted me to soft tires, a bad wheel bearing, and a sticking brake caliper over the years I've had it. The potential damages that might have resulted without the alerts could have cost me many times the cost of the TPMS. Tire related failures on the toad can be particularly bad, since they're often undetectable in the coach unless a passerby points them out. I would not be without a TPMS now.
