As described- NWS downloads its data!

Comments about Pro2 WeatherLink Software (with data logging feature) for Vantage Pro 2, USB:
I post current reading to the internet where it is accessible to anyone, and I know the National Weather Service (NOAA) downloads my data. The physical installation is a snap (literally- it snaps into place), but the software setup is dang near impossible. I gave up on the manual, and just set it up through dead reconning. One weird thin, I use the USB model, but my computer THINKS it in in COM 6. So I just set everything up as COM 6, and it has been running perfectly, 24/7, for about three months now. Search "K5KMC" for a look at my current data.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

easy to install and use

About Me Enthusiast
I use this for my personal weather information and wanted to link up to have a REAL weather station for others in my area. The Davis weather site was easy to link to and set up. I cant say that for NOAA, CWOP, or WUNDER, I've spent hours trying to link to those sites (easy access, they say) and still havent gotten anywhere near being able to do that. But the Davis site is great!

About Me Casual User

I am a full time RV'er and enjoy the wealth of information provided. I especially like the wireless capability which means no holes in my RV roof and no snaking a cable. Also when we move I can simply bring in the outside unit and not worry about loose cables. However, I wish DAVIS had provided a blue tooth option instead having to tether my pc to the receiving unit with a cable. I see this as a major inconvience.

This Software has Major Problems
WeatherLink software crashes frequently. I have lots of software on my PC and I rarely have any problems with any other product. WeatherLink crashes daily and I have checked everything in setup and everything appears fine. I like the Davis weather station but this software sucks.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Doesn't Work in Win 7
from Tucson, AZ
From many unanswered comments on the web, the Weatherlink USB has had problems for well over five years.I find it reprehensible that Davis has not resolved such a longstanding and well-known problem.Serial connections and 32-bit computers are history! USB and 64-bit computers are today's technology.Get with the program, Davis !!!
