Thanks but I prefer not to have mac in the mix at this time and I am now leaning more towards the Pro2, after reading the manuals, specs, ... this is getting weather stuff is getting addicting
So I am looking at buying the Davis 6152 Vantage Pro2 and the Davis 6555 WeatherLink IP. The set up will be to have the Pro2 console on a table in the a great room for general viewing and will have an Ethernet cable available to connect the display to the to the logger cable and then to the router. I will not have, nor do I want a PC or a Mac in the mix at this time and I will not be doing any data analysis other than what is available from the Weatherlink apps and WU. I will be using the web/moble Davis Weatherlink apps (I have not seen these yet, I hope they are decent) and uploading to WU.
It is my understanding from the specifications with this set up the Pro2 console will be updated from the ISS every 2.5 seconds for wind speed/direction, 10-12 seconds outside temp, 50-60 seconds outside humidity, 10-12 seconds for rain counter, 60 seconds for inside temp and pressure. Also, it is my understanding the Davis web/mobile app will be updated every minute from the console? Is that correct? Lastly, this set up will update WU every 15 minutes.
So some questions are is there a better configuration for my set up? Is there a faster way to update to WU without a pc/mac? Are there reasons to update to WU faster? I understand WU updates their proprietary forecast every 15 minutes? Does anyone know how often the WU current temp, wind, etc are updated? Does anyone know what information is forwarded to WU? Guessing current outside temp, current outside humidity, current wind speed/direction, current pressure?
