Comments about Davis Instruments Vantage Vue<reg> Wireless Station, includes console and sensor suite.:
I owned a wired system for 15 years that worked great. After 1 yr it din't register the rain correctly. In fact it records rain fall when it's not raining. Got a new sensor, battery, and changed the channel. Nothing worked. Save your money and go for the wired system.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is my personal weather station. I depend on it all the time for daily, wind, weather and temperatures. I love it, I might add.Everything is great about it for the price. I've had cheaper brands and they don't compare. Love the wireless transmitting also. Things that aren't too great are the fact that hail storms can break the pointer and the wind cups. It has taken two storms that caused the roof to be replaced each time and a pointer one time and one of the cups on the last storm. Maybe silicone wind things would be an improvement.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love the easy reference to the items on the display. Also the min, max, and total to date.
Very satisfied with product and support.
from KC Metro
I purchased the Vue Model. The wind indicator malfunctioned. A call to support determined the sensor was defective. They shipped a new unit and assisted in making sure all was working correctely. I was impressed with their expertise and concern in resolving the problem and promptness in resolving it.

I use the Davis weather console for my own personal use to tell the inside and outside temperature, the wind chill, the humidity, in and out, dew point and wind speed and it is very accurate. Great product.

Vantage Vue Weatther Station

I have an 8 year old Weather Monitor 2 and the Vantage View is more compact, easier to change battery and water proof.

Easy to assemble and works great
It was easy to assemble. I use it in a motorhome inside a warehouse and the outside unit is about 150 feet away. Works great.

Reliable, convenient, accurate
from Gardnerville, NV
I purchased a Vantage Prosystem for my wife about 12 years ago. It worked very reliably, with only an occasional battery change, for all that time, but recently several issues all appeared at once. The unit was obsolete and it seemed reasonable to simply replace it.I replaced it with a Vantage View and am very happy. The new unit cost a lot less and seems to do everything the old one did and then some in a smaller format. Installation was a breeze. Great product. If the new unit is as reliable as my old one, it may last longer than I do!
This is my second Davis Wx Station
from Ventura, CA
Would lke to have been able to add an off-set to the Wind speed since the wind is somewhat obscured by near bldgs. It consistently indicates about 75% to 85% low relative to nearby anemometers.
from Southern Wisconsin
Compared to other brands I have used , this is by far the best. It is overall well made, but the thing that I am most impressed with is the range of reception. I have the unit mounted on a 12 ft pole 400 + feet from the house plus the signal has to go through 24 inch stone walls of my 1850s field stone farm house with other solid structures and spruce trees in the line of site. Try that with your other brands. I think some of the problems that are being reported are probably due to bad location choices. Originally I had a temporary mount closer to the house which resulted in poor wind speed tracking. This was due to trees and other obstructions in the general area.It is now mounted in an open field.
Great; our second Davis weather station
More complex than our last one; takes awhile to learn how to operate
from Guilford, CT
I have the console sitting on my kitchen desk and look up often to check the stats. We even gave one to a family member for Christmas. There's not a better tool for weather lovers!
Excellent Weather Station
from Columbus, IN
Love the quality, love the fit and finish, love the easy access thumbscrew doors, good size and really simple to install.
By Bibbster in AZ
from Mesa, Arizona
For the price, its worth every penny. After 22 years Army flight experience, tracking the weather has become a hobby. Worked perfectly out of the box, no failures. Arizona rain is hard to come by, but only storm in 30 days registered .07". AWESOME. Best buy in the industry. Thanks!!!

By Weather enthusiast
from Richmond, Va
I was told this was the best weather station to buy for the money. It was very easy to install, however- it consistantly reads -43.2 degrees for an outside temperature daily (it's over 100degrees here!) and the wind reads 8mph or lower even in the middle of a thunderstorm with 50mph+ gusts.... waiting for a response from technical support as we speak.

We love our new Davis Vantage Vue
By Yellow Bird
from Ninilchik, Alaska
We are both private pilots and keep our airplane here in Alaska ready to go. The weather here can change in a heartbeat, and we need to be very careful to note any changes we can't see. This instrument, as well as taking a long look outside the window, aids us in making good decisions on whether to "go" or "no-go."

Glad to have your instruments again
I use it for keeoing trac of local weather
from East Montpelier, Vermont
Two possible improvements on a fantastic product.The wind direction indicator on the wind rose should be a litter larger. The ISS should utilize a rechargable Lithium-Ion CR123 battery and be recharged from the solar cell.
Vantage Vue Wireless Station for condo
from Greenport, Long Island, New York
We wanted to have a weather station with multiple receiving consoles for our condominium residents. I worked with a Davis tech consultant via e-mail and phone to design a system that would work throughout our complex. He was very helpful and professional. We installed the system last week and had one glitch (my error) which the Davis tech support cleared up over the phone. All the condo owners that bought into the system are very well pleased. A great product. The information it gathers, records and produces is far in excess of my expectations. I recommend this product highly.

Vantage Vue has Problems
from Northwood, NH
Purchased primarily for wind data; found anemometer to be highly inaccurate. ? 4mph wind blowing hat off? Then the backup battery issue started. Replaced battery. Warning still on. Battery goes dead. Tech support hasn't responded to email. Unit is now not functioning. Very disappointed.
from Punta gorda, fl
Fun to track weather
Vantage VUE an Excellent Product
from Garrison (Hudson Valley) NY
product was a birthday present from spouse; shipment arrived promptly, instructions easy to use, assembly a breeze and fun; needed to order mounting kit and it came next day; console has so many features that it takes some fussing to get familiar but it tells more than you'd ever need to know about all weather measurements. both units (indoor console and outside sensor suite) are completely wireless so you can move the console around the house easily.

An Absolute Five Star Recommenation
from Lake Geneva, Wisconsin
We live on a large lake in Southern Wisconsin and are avid boaters. Storms frequently appear out of no where. The VantageVue alarms us if the barametric pressure starts to drop at a fast rate warning us that a storm is about to formulate. This product provides more information that our local [@] website. I were pleased with the quick setup instructions, very easy and understandable. Had the system operational within one hour upon opening the box. I hope Davis Instruments developes a wireless lake water temperature transmitter so we know exactly what the water temp accurately reads before we go swimming. Thanks for a great product and Davis Instruments has my vote of confidence and personal recommendation. By the way, this isn't the first Davis Weather Station I've purchased. For this reason, I chose Davis again. Hope to purchase an additional monitoring station for our storm shelter.
