WIXOM, Mich. — Hamaton Inc., a manufacturer of tire-pressure-monitoring system (TPMS) components has released the first major update on iOS for its TPMS programming app.
The app, designed to program the U-Pro Hybrid NFC in one tap, has undergone a contemporary makeover, with particular attention paid to modernizing the interface, the company said.
The update also introduces features that deliver a simplified vehicle lookup, essential TPMS information and the flexibility to operate offline.
Users can add vehicles they program most often to their "favorites" and access them quicker than selecting the make and model each time.
The refreshed app also displays the type of relearn procedure a vehicle uses (auto relearn, OBD, etc.), along with a short description.
The vehicle database automatically updates whenever users launch the app.
Even if there is limited or no internet access, the app will continue to run and draw on the last database downloaded, the company said.
As with the last version, users can program the sensor to a specific vehicle protocol or enter an existing OE sensor ID. The "Manual ID" option enables users to skip the relearn process as the ID (in the ECU) is unchanged.
The "Hamaton NFC" update, for the iPhone 7 or newer with a minimum of iOS 15, is available to download on the Apple App Store.
