So is the $274.21 price on Amazon for the Atlas, Access, Monitor and lightning detection a VALID price! Its $115 cheaper than acurite.com.

I'd be temped to order the  $274.21 price from Amazon if I didn't already have an Access.

Now that the Atlas 7/8 is official will we start hearing something about the status/future of the Elite? It seems to me that the Elite is where most of the user enthusiasm was when they announced the Atlas 20 months ago.

Now that there is a 30ft wind extension option for the Atlas, the only difference I see between the Atlas and Elite are update times and the 915 MHZ RF signal. Don't really see a need for a Elite version.

Does the Elite require the Access device like the 7/8 does?

That's likely the way the majority of their current customers are going to see it.

I think we're going to see a different marketing plan for the Elite catering to the advanced hobbiest and professional.

No.  It will be a different system.

Any links to the Wind Extension only (model: 06072M)?  I can't find it on the site yet, but it can be ordered as one of the options for the Atlas.  It'd be nice if they included it as a freebie in the box when they send the Beta testers the new hardware.

Also interesting to see that the extension cable is simple a USB Mini-B.  I guess it makes it nice and simple.

Interesting pricing model. I wonder if they'll do packages down the road; where you can get the Access, display and Atlas at once...vs. the ala cart they have now.

Other side of the coin: For $149, I could have a running Atlas that would report out with my current Access.

I know for the 5-N-1 the barometric pressure readings are taken from the SmartHub or the Display.

For the Atlas were are the barometric pressure readings taken?

Hey folks, happy Atlas day! Barometric pressure readings are sampled in the display. If you go the Access route, the readings are taken in the Access hub.

Any other questions, keep em coming!

Atlas Display:
Does the Atlas display always show Dew Point readings or does it switch to the Heat Index calculation when temperature is 80°F or higher like the 5-N-1 HD display? I would prefer to always display Dew Point Readings.

Can I display a daily rain fall reading as a midnight to midnight reading? Or is it the last 24 hour reading?

How do you get the readings onto a website or CWOP? Does the hub output a text file of any kind or are we locked into the AcuRite cloud?

I'd be tempted too, but Acurite could not get me my discounted hub and then this:  "$274.21 + $220.94 Shipping & Import Fees Deposit to Canada"

Oh, and that is USD so multiply by 1.33 to get CAD.  IOW, the price of a Davis.

I just bit the bullet and ordered a atlas with the wind extension , ought to look nice out there with my 5-1 and my weather-flow, I did not order a hd display as I already have a access and will us online options for now.
By any chance will any of the old displays work with Atlas?

Can,t wait  \:D/

 Pretty confident that isn’t valid.

I was able to add it to my cart as a valid purchase.  I canceled but it appears valid.

A couple of hours later and it is showing out of stock

OK, I currently have a Access and 5in1.  If I order an Atlas it will add its data to my current dashboard and see all the data on one page.

You would have to sniff the data from the Access's wunderground feed. 

I don't think the author of Meteobridge/Weatherbridge has any plans for that.

Access itself has the potential for supporting other weather networks, but it's up to Acurite to add them.

It does not work with WeatherDisplay and probably not Meteobridge. I'm not sure if Brian plans to support it. Michael Walsh at VisReader has said he is not inclined to support it.  Someone may have to create some software to pull the data from the Access.

If you mean your myAcurite dashboard, then yes.  You'll need to scroll, though.

Another way to do it is to have a second Access.  Usually one would do this for another location.  Then they would be arranged as different tabs on your dashboard.
