New Vantage Vue installed in Ozark, Mo
« on: February 17, 2010, 06:42:37 PM »
Just installed the Davis Vantage Vue....an easy install using a 8ft 1.5in rigid electrical conduit placing it 1.5 ft in the ground and installing the station at 6.5ft.  It is located about 200 ft away from the house and I am experiencing no reception problems.  The connection was quick and painless...and using the Davis USB datalogger and the LWC weather Center.  (Lightsoft Weather Center)  I operate my System on an Apple Mac Book Pro and after downloading the correct drivers...poof...up and rolling on Weather Underground and CWOP.  It was really a joy to see it all work...just like it was supposed to...I am one happy camper and would recommend this system and software to anyone who wants a stable system.  This is a great value...for anyone looking to get into this great hobby.  It may not be the "top" of the line for Davis...but it suits my needs and budget!

Congrats. I think you will be quite happy with your Vue. As best as I can tell, the main differences between the Vue and the Pro 2 is the solar radiation sensor and the ability to place the rain gauge low and the anemometer high.

My Vue is as high as I can get it and the rain catch seems to be right on the money.

The Vue also cannot use the UV sensor, or any other VP2 extra sensor (temp, temp-humidity, soil moisture/temperature/leaf wetness). Except... it CAN use the anemometer transmitter and an extra anemometer to remote the anemometer/wind vane.
