Davis Still in business?
« on: July 09, 2024, 11:21:59 AM »
I have to ask, because a recently sent in a support question and also so questions about purchasing a new weather station, and no respponse on either. A bit disappointing since I have 2 Vantage Pro 2's and need some customer support. But such is the way of many companies today.

Yes, they're still in business.

Since they were bought by AEM, prices have increased (more than I think is reasonable to adjust for inflation) and their support has been less than awesome.

I keep hoping for a true competitor to emerge. I initially thought WeatherFlow might be up to that challenge but they've dropped the ball on their hardware. Fine Offset has a chance (they're getting closer).

Don't get me wrong, the current Davis products work well (not a fan of the new console though). If you're in the states and are going to by Davis hardware, I'd go with Ryan at scaledinstruments.com

IMO....your best bet is to call them on the phone.  I've done it a few times and they were very helpful.
