USB connectivity is a JOKE. On my 3rd Data Logger. I have installed software on 3 PC's in the trouble shooting process.... It will work fine for a few days then stop.DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON DAVIS EQUIPMENT...
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About time for the review

About Me Casual User
Normally don't do reviews. But am sitting on my deck tonight and marveling at the reliability of this Vantage unit ( maybe not identical to the pro 2 .. but close ) we installed in our backyard some 8 years ago. Have done nothing other than replace batteries maybe twice over that period. The little bearings used in the wind cup and weather vane are amazing. Barely a whisper of air moves them still.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Yes I would buy it again
from Lampe Camp, Erie, Pa
I need to advise campers and fishermen of the weather conditions on Lake Erie. The weather can change in a minuet. This new weather Station will help me keep them safe.

I would buy Davis instruments Again
By Mtn Man
from Whittier, NC
Easy to install, I used 2" Black PVC pipe on the peak of my roof and works great. Kept PVC short to avoid flex. Stood up to 26 MPH winds. Love this product.

Best Unit, Best Customer Support
from Grayland WA
I have owned the Vantage Pro2 for five years or better and finally started having a few issues. The unit had preformed flawlessly since installation. Customer support is absolutely the best. I did have to ship it back to the company for an "overhaul" which took less than two weeks from sending to receiving back and once again is working like new. Overhaul had a nominal charge being the unit was way out of warranty. It is mounted on the SW coast of Washington State, 50' off the beach and getting it's fair share of wind and rain much less salt exposure. I've had other brands that were nearly as much as this unit, without the longevity and virtually no customer support. If this unit ever becomes irreparable, I will buy another Davis unit. By far the best on the market for the price. I would have given this six stars......

Instrument great but manual very poor
By Bob in Bowie
from Bowie, MD
The manual lacks such information as how to set the DIP switch for different code/channel. Oddly enough the remote temperature sensor instructions include this information.

We replaced an older Davis Weather Station which had served us well for almost ten years. We are very happy with the replacement. The installation and setup was extremely easy.

My life depends on it
from Tangier Island, VA
I have flown a helicopter to a remote island weekly for 7 years. The VP has allowed me to have access to weather so that I can plan my flight and be safer. If you could just make it able to see fog/mist it would be perfect...

A great investment

Great for weather and solar data for our areaInternet access is a plus but it would be nice if more detailed information like dew point and UV could be shown.

By Big Al

Had to buy a new one after 6 years because mice had eaten all the insulation off the wires, but it was still working. This newer one is even better!
Merchant response: Hopefully its not as tasty! QA-Dept

About Me Student
I am a novice weather watcher and a volunteer Firefighter in a small suburb outside Austin. I attended the Skywarn school and asked the NWS meteorologist for a recommendation on a wireless weather station. He recommended David Instruments. I purchased the VANTAGE PRO2, WIRELESS by Pro2. I first ordered the wrong model and Davis was great and gave me a full refund and sent me correct unit. I was able to install the measuring station myself on a staged pole (24' tall). Set up the desktop monitor and default settings. Was able to install entire system in about an hour and a half. Worked perfectly from the beginning (May 20). I love this system and folks at Davis are great!
