The required change is to go with an I2C bus and get rid of LSS. Then they can use any current and future sensor. This is inevitable and Davis will need to do this at some point.

Inevitable like a color screen on its console, and wifi built-in?

Sorry, but I couldn’t resist poking fun at Davis, again, and its horribly dated technology.

With the release of the WLL the color console with WiFi solution no longer needs to come from Davis. All we need now is for someone to come up with an app that mimics a display console. A cheap tablet is all you'll need and you are all set. We'll see that soon from some 3rd party developer.

Since the WLL release, for me this I2C bus support is the last remaining advancement into having something worthy of being called a VP3. Then I can have a new ISS with I2C sensors, a WLL that is the console to receive sensor data and 3rd party software to do what you want with the data (as Meteobridge is already supporting via WLL API), and soon the tablet display app utilizing the same WLL API that Meteobridge is using and you got yourself a VP3.

We actually picked up some nice precip with this one, which was not true of the past 3. Needed the precipitation here unlike many/most surrounding areas.

I see our pressure has just taken an upward trend. Now 29.27"

You may not have noticed it if you don't go there often, but the WU PWS data is very much being used on weather.com, and without any credit or attribution.

I just zoomed in on the maps with PWS wind and temps.  I can say for sure my area is data from Wunderground.  I have one neighbor that is only posting to WUnderground, not CWOP.  And his pin is showing.  So Weather.com is getting data from WU.  They are sharing for sure.

Ahhh yes, but yet you proudly display owning three of them... :-P

Unfortunately, there isn’t a better system on the market at the Davis price point.

Ahh.. because of XML parsing rules, you have to 'double encode' Ampersands

So for <item caption="Home ©" link="index.php" title="Home Page"/> make it

<item caption="Home &amp;amp#169;" link="index.php" title="Home Page"/>

Replace all  '&' with '&amp;amp' in the XML and it will work.
