New WeatherLink console and cumulus mx
« on: January 05, 2023, 04:33:41 PM »
Hello everyone,

I am a proud owner of a Davis Vantage pro 2 connected via a usb logger to my pc in order to download data to Cumulus mx and my website..

I just seen Davis is releasing a new WeatherLink console.. which I find really modern compared to the old one provided with the station (orange backlight)

Link to the new console is https://www.davisinstruments.com/pages/weatherlink-console

Now my question is.. could this be a substitute of the old outdated console? So can I get the data from the new console to upload onto cumulus mx.. I want to make sure itís possible before pre-ordering at $300+ dollars..

Thank you!!

I know, but if you click on the little green globe under your forum profile you go to https://www.wxforum.net/www.raulsbd.co.uk, which is useless. . .

No it's not possible yet. The new console will not allow local data access at launch - however Davis do plan to add this capability at a later date.

I see this type of console targeting more the "Davis aligned" plug'n play user and maybe away from the many third party feed capabilities? As it stands I don't see this console as any sort of "outdating" device at the moment. One will probably have to wait and see if this is targeting their own agenda or users overall requirements?
