There is one item I think we all need to be aware of. If you remove a tire from the stock wheel with the pressure monitors installed (Standard on Armada) you MUST take the nut from the valve stem and push the stem/pressure transmitter into the tire BEFORE breaking the bead on the tire. Failure to do so will probably result in damage to the transmitter. (See Bulletin #04038). After the tire is remounted you can push the sidewall in and replace the transmitter.

Does the tire need to be dismounted to move the transmitter to another wheel? I'd like to include the spare in my tire rotation.

You can let the air out of the tire, remove the valve stem mut and push the valve stem into the tire. Then break the bead, push the bead to the center "well" of the wheel, then maybe you can get the transmitter out. I haven't tried it. Why not buy another transmitter and put in the spare? That would save a lot of work.
Unlike some other models of Nissan, the Armada's pressure transmitters are not coded for wheel location. The low pressure indicater tells you a tire is low, but not which one. Other models, such as the Murano have each transmitter coded so it tells you which tire is low.

I have the tech package, so I see individual tire pressures, not just whether one of them is low. I'm not sure how the system would react if there were five tires broadcasting, instead of only four.

Brings up an interesting point. Wonder what would happen if I drove next to an Armada with a low tire? Would I get a warning? Anybody know what the range of the system is?
