This shows the TPMS being put into learning mode. I will ask for this to be added to the AP NIS 006 product.

You can either use an activation tool or set the tire pressures to 34,31,29,26 PSI and drive for 3 minutes.

I have not tested actually changing my sensors, but the data I'm getting back shows the TPMS ECU is going into and out of learning mode as it should, so looks good.

Long time coming but so happy to see this feature added. Great job thistle!

BUT...

is there a reason this wont work for those of us with the AP- NIS-005? $500 upgrade is pretty steep to get this feature if you don't need the TCM controls.

I'm guessing it might be related to getting into the transmission computer so, without having the Cobb access the TCU, it might not be possible. I could be wrong, I'm just guessing since he didn't mention the 005 directly.

I didn't realize the TPMS and tranmission computer were linked. Seems odd no? TCM linked to TPMS due to VDC/ABS related items?

They aren't linked, we just planned that utility type function would be increasingly added to AP NIS 006. If there are people that want just TPMS and no TCM stuff then obviously we need to rethink that idea. Talk to me.

I track my car on road courses not drag strips and I don't launch it so I don't really see the reason or value behind the $500 upgrade(for my uses/needs). I do have 2 sets of wheels(street/track) so the ability to switch TPMS without having to go to the dealer is a valuable feature for me personally.

I'm not sure whom to talk to about this, but I already put in inquiry into Joe about upgrading my ver 2 AP to a 2B (but not a TCM unit) to get the faster flashes and the single cable (instead of cable & dongle) so if Cobb offered another trade in upgrade from 2 to 2B(with TPMS) instead of just non TCM to TCM for a reasonable price this might be a path to pursue.

Obviously I wouldn't turn down a free update via firmware to have the TPMS feature but I understand there is time and effort involved in learning how to do this and coding and testing the feature so perhaps there there will be an upgrade option available in the future for the AP owners that don't need TCM features.

The TCM features also allow you to adjust the clutch touch points, and firmness of the shifts yourself. I think its a valuable item to have, as you can tune the shifting to what you like without having to take it to the dealer. You don't need to use it for the launch control feature. Just in time and effort on going to the dealer to get the touch points altered is worth the $500.

I must not put enough miles on my GT-R to need the clutch points altered constantly. I'm very happy with how it shifts, GT-R is 2 years old with 11,000 miles on it and has had them checked/set yearly at the free POS service. It's not something I need to constantly tweak or change enough to drop $500 on it.

BTW if you need anyone to test I've already got my street wheels on the car but not synched to the TPMS as I haven't made a trip to the dealer yet ;)

I have the 005 and had no plans to upgrade to the 006 with TCM controlling. I'd love to have the TPMS feature available for my 005, however.

It may be something to pay for, after your warranty expires (or after your 36,000 mile POS), and the dealer charges you $300 to do it, every time.

Completely agree with this. A Cobb AP should be able to do this, regardless of version, not strong arm people into buying the nis006 only for this feature. The AP's for the GTRs are already higher then ANY other AP you make for other cars, don't make it any more obvious that Cobb is only looking at this as a profitizing oportunity.

Say 'thank you' back to the people who already gave you their hard earned money, make this updateable to both nis005 and nis006 owners 4 free.

Thats my 2 cents.

for people crying, cobb doesn't even HAVE to do this. It takes time and money to develop this stuff. TIME is MONEY. If you need this feature buy the upgrade, or dont. :)

+1 If you want Cobb to continue to develop products, do not ask them to do it for free!
