The Steelmate TP90 system. Nice is the tire temperature feature.
Just today the pressure warning worked well. While adjusting the pressure to the right setting and a test driving a loud beep and a red blinking gaved warning of a too low front tire pressure.
The reason was a faulty manometer pistol. After testing a new one the old one seems to be useless for accurate measurement - it always displayed a pressure of 0.5 bar too low and so the TPMS alarm was successfully triggered.

A 16 GB micro SD card seems to provide capture capability in 1080p for 1 hour.
Enough for daily commuting and using it as a dash cam.

Handlebar mount is very clever designed - a lot of possibilities for every angle needed.

Is audio usable or do you hear too much wind noise?

I'm not driven yet. Today it's got 4° Celsius - so I took the Audi.
But I will report. The youtube vids with a GoPro and a DSR intend that noise is no problem at all.
We will see ...

After two days of commuting my impressions of the video and the audio quality are very good.
But I'll need a bigger memory card. Although the 16 GB version records nearly one hour in 1920x1080 or 1920x1440 at 48 fps I'll look for a much bigger one the next days.
Then a whole day of commuting can be recorded in 1080p.
But I'm very happy at the moment ;D ;D

Jepp,

and I have to tell yet another very amazing thing about the DSR:

For getting to the location shown in the last pic I had to climb a very steep ascent, probably only passable for 4-wheeled driven vehicles or motocross bikes. I really thought the engine would die every moment and I'm getting stucked. But nothing like this happened - The DSR went further and further without any signs of loosing power.
Never needing to shift a gear and having full power at every rev is mindblowing in offroad situations. I'm sooo happy ...  :D  8)  ::)  :)

I'll try this again and measure the angle and distance to climb this time and let you know ...
