Hello,
I currently have this:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CBFNG3P/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
With 2 extra sensors and a lighting sensor.
Because of the forecast not working correctly, Acurite offered to replace the Display with the same to try again or with this one:

What do you guys think? I like having the Outdoor temp without having to switch pages for example.

I was also thinking maybe trying to trade up for this:

Thanks

Forecast from Dark Sky?!?!?!?  Didn't Apple put a (rapidly-approaching) end-of-life on Dark Sky's API on all non-Apple platforms when they acquired them last year?????

MarkHarris71:
oh that sounds bad. I just asked Acurite support about that.

Somehow, I would like to think AcuRite has some type of agreement with Dark Sky so that all of their displays and MyAcuRite will continue to get forecasts past 2021. They should stop selling any new displays if they donít!

By the way I just purchase a display with Dark Sky forecasts that was on sale this week!
