Having just got my Kodiaq after a long string of sporting BMWs, I was very surprised to get a 'tyre pressure' warning message, telling me the right front was low. I stopped at the next filling station and set all four, then went into the TPMs which simply asked me if the pressures were now correct and was happy when I ticked 'yes'. No setting up required.
To reset the BMW system, which is controlled from the ABS (rotation) sensors, you have to drive around for a while, trying to stick to the straightest roads you can. The system thinks for a while then resets itself whilst you are doing this. The Skoda clearly believes the driver whilst the BMWs have to decide for themselves.
