It's not at all obvious (to me at least) what it does. What does it claim to do?

It's obviously not a weather station, though conceivably eg a temperature monitor which might compare local actuals to forecast values. But difficult to guess what it claims to do that eg WXSIM connected to a well-exposed VP2 might not do a lot better.

Sorry, but I don't usually have time to help with individual issues by email unless you are a Prodata customer. Please post your issue in the relevant forum section here & I will comment there if I have anything useful to add.
