    I do monthly usually but in fall with dropping temps weekly probably doesnít hurt.

    You canít rely on your ABS speed sensor based TPMS on your 2016.5 CX-5 to keep up the correct tire pressure as it wonít give you any warning for low tire pressure on all tires due to seasonal temperature drops.

    I run an eBay unit that plugs into the cigarette lighter and uses the valve stem sensors. Not for everyone but gives me live temp and PSI data from tires.

    On my GX 460 it just has the idiot light as well but I found using OBD Fusion and a ELM 327 adapter with a legitimate 2.x firmware I can read the TPMS data as a dashboard on my phone.

    I wonder if Forscan on models with direct TPMS sensors can pull data on CX-5 as well?

    My '15 CX has the indirect setup.

    Bad practice particularly with your system. All 4 tires could drop the same amount, particularly in colder weather, and it wouldn't sound an alarm. It doesn't care what the pressures are, just as long as they're all the same.

    Swear to God. 2 years almost now. Checked the air one time after a thread here about dealers not inflating or over inflating. It was perfect.
