Mind did that on the last update too.  Waited about 15 minutes after it showed the 100% erased.  I powered down, re-seated the SD, and powered it back up.  Fortunately it started back up and reran the erase and then loaded the new firmware with no issue.  I figured I didn't put the SD card in fully the first time.

I think I have sorted out... Thanks for the pointers Brian!

I've flashed my WS-2000 many times forwards and backwards and tested every version multiple times in my testing. I've never seen that happen. Seems like it got stuck. Good rules to follow when flashing firmware is to always do it when weather is good and less likely for power interruption. Also wait it out because an interrupted firmware can leave you with a bricked device. Being that you've waited 30 minutes and it hasn't changed means that it probably won't change so there is no point waiting it out further. I think the good news is that it says 0% complete. So hopefully if you power it down and back up it will start up again and you can try the "Upgrate" :) again. One last thing you could try before powering it down is to remove the SD card and plug it in again and see if it recognizes it. It may have trouble reading your SD card. Worth a shot a this point. If it is bricked and wont power up then you'll need to arrange for RMA. If you do get a second change to "Upgrate" (sorry can't resist), then make sure to format the SD card as FAT32 and copy the .bin firmware file back on. Be sure you trust that SD card if not find another one. It is best to use small SD card like 4GB or 8GB as recommended by manufacture.

Interesting development:  I had a reply from Davis who suspect some sort of grounding problem.  They suggested I power down the console and remove the logger.  I did so and watched the wind direction for 6 minutes.  Just one 360, and as the wind today is light and variable that's to be expected.  I've reported back to Davis and await their response.

ps, I made up a resistor network and substituted that for the anemometer.  No 360 flips.

I jump on the bandwagon as well.  ....and as a long time product developer (FW/SW coding and integration) for portable telecommunications monitoring & testing instruments (analog POTS through 1G/10G Ethernet and everything in-between) I am able and willing to assist in your effort.

All,
 don't know if anyone has looked at the latest Google API for charts.....

I have been messing around with it to replace the pie chart... Quite easyy to implement.....

Not sure what to do here but its hung-up , stuck. Been this way for 30 minutes.

If I am looking for better quality, etc. why not add the bonus of Doppler?
I’m holding out until I know it will be accurate in sunlight. I can’t see any way that it is going to be in a radiation shield.

Have you looked at the Lufft specs closely?  +/- 2 C in calm air with the heater off (what if the heater is on?), precipitation accuracy is 20% under lab conditions (ie: synthetic/perfect rain drops), and +/- 10 degrees on the wind direction.  Probably useful for controlling HVAC or irrigation in a low-maintenance automation setup, but not really a scientific instrument.....

Thanks for that. I have no idea what specs I looked at, but confirmed that it isn't very good at all for a PWS.
The quest continues...

I have been running the Atlas with HDdisplay for a few days and like it.

However, I have noticed that it predicts storms during the afternoon even though the skies are clear of cloud. I suspect that given my elevation of around 6000 feet is going to throw-off how the display treats pressure swings.

I can calibrate the pressure by adjusting it up or down using the calibrate option. For 6000 feet, ambient barometric pressure should be closer to 24 inHg an offset of 5 inHg.

My question is whether that “offset amount” would be the same for all pressures that the unit reads at this elevation. In other words, is atmospheric pressure drop a linear change with increased elevation.

The reason I ask is that when I go to the calibrate tab, it shows the current reading, not the sea-level ambient of 29inHg.

Thanks,
Charlie

Agreed, just checked my WU site taking data from the Gw-1000 and whilst it does show the current/live soil moisture data level it does not tabulate it as a record.

If you are uploading to ecowitt.net then this data is recorded and can be referenced/graphed as needed.
