I've officially given up on waiting for the atlas.  I legit wanted to give it a shot.  Bought a VP2 from scaled instruments today though.
Yeah I am thinking about doing the same.

At $278 if/when it ever ships combined with the headaches of trying to grab data locally from the Access, you made a wise decision to buy the known commodity (Davis VP2) that is shipping today with only a slightly higher price tag.  Granted, the Acu-Rite comes with solar, UV, and lightning sensors for the lower price, but as of today the Atlas 7/8 can't even measure a temperature since it is not available for order.....
WU Gold Stars for everyone! :lol:

I won't say I have given up, but I have lost interest somewhat. I have a neighbor only 2000' away who put up an Ambient 2902 in December. It seems to be working well so far, so maybe I don't "need" a weather station after all  ;). I was prepared to buy the Atlas 8 when it came out, but at this point I think I will just monitor my neighbor's station as long as it is reliably publishing to WU and wait to see if the Atlas Elite ever becomes a real product.

vreihen,

I actually have *four* PWS stations at the moment...plus the Stratus/CoCoRaHS manual gauge.  The biggest problem is trying to decide which one of the four is the most correct at any given time!

As I've said, weather stations multiply like rabbits in my back yard.....  :lol:

Anyone have any updates? Acurite seems to have gone quiet, and I still haven't received my Atlas. I hope they haven't scrapped this idea... or something fell through.

I got an email saying there was something new posted here... I don't see it, and  several of acurites support staff has been deleted on their forum. I could not log in to their site on Firefox, I had to use explorer.

I imagine Ryan just had second thoughts about what he should post.

You probably have a bad cookie.

I see some name changes and older accounts removed, but nothing startling.
