okay, this system requires you to break the bead on your tires and remove the valve stem. on removed, replace with monitor. make sure they go in the correct tire if labeled. and install the nut that keeps the tpms in the wheel.
the box with the writing appears to be the power supply to the lcd display. so you will want to hook that up to the battery and make sure you have a long enough wiring lead to mount the display in your vehicle.
once you have power and the display is operating, follow the calibration instruction included with the monitor. you will probably only need to drive the vehicle for a short distance to achieve calibration. but i cannot be sure since each system operates differently.
what vehicle is this going on?
good luck with the install. if you have any other question i will answer them the best i can.
power and ground to the black box,
and a power lead to the display
it should be pretty simple, unless the display lead is routed through the engine bulkhead.
but if you are uncomfortable, don't risk frying your system. i would pay no more than $50 USD to have it installed. I am assuming you are in England based on the way you spell tire(tyres). But I don't know the market value of the install there. You should pay less than having a radio installed. And if they calibrate it, you should pay the same as a radio install. Unless they go through the bulkhead. Then it will be a little more.
Hope that helps.

I would agree. It should cost you about the same as installing an amplifier. I worked at a car audio/security shop for years, and we did oddball stuff too(radar detectors, headlights, ricer products, etc.). I would price this at about the cost of an amplifier.

I too have this system and I'm trying to install it!
However, on page 11 of the installation manual, step 4, I can not read the color code of the wires!!! ARGH!!!
The image is so small and of poor quality, I am unable to make out which of the 3 wires goes where!! HELP!!!
Has anybody installed this? Can someone PLEASE tell me which wire goes where??
