Davis WeatherLink Android App "Live" is not working properly.
« on: September 16, 2020, 02:57:02 AM »
My phone is an Android Google Pixel 3 XL
My WeatherLink Android App is Version: 2.1.013 (384)

I like to use my phone next to my PC sitting on its wireless charger stand with the WeatherLink app running "Live".
At least the top line of the WeatherLink app says it's "Live".

Here's my experience:
Temperature never updates.
Humidity never updates.
Pressure never updates.
Inside Temperature never updates.
Inside Humidity never updates
Wind updates every 2.5 seconds.
Rain updates every 10 seconds.

To update Temp, Hum, and Pressure, Inside Temp, Inside Hum, I have to press the back arrow and then tap back to the app again.
I shouldn't have to do that.

The only thing "Live" in the app is Wind and Rain.
All else is DEAD.  :-(

I have a Moto Z4 Android with WLL. Mine isn't the same version, it is v 2.1.003.

I just updated it to v 2.0.013 like yours and it is working. I saw the wind direction update.

Did you check your WiFi (or cellular data) for your phone?

Contact the Authors of the App.  email: apps@davisnet.com

tbh I dont look at my phone every second of the day waiting on a change in values. I have far more important things to do that stare at a screen all day  [tup]

Mine isn't the same version, it is v 2.1.003.

I just updated it to v 2.0.013 like yours and it is working. I saw the wind direction update.


Newer version is being released now.  check if there is an update in google play.

tbh, I DO stare at my screen all day. As my screen name "TraderGary" might suggest, I trade the stock market for a living. I've traded my own account full time for the past 25 years. And while I'm trading I do what I said, I put my phone on its charging stand next to my computer and that's where it sits for all of my trading day. If it is open to my WeatherLink App, I expect it to work "as advertised". Your "far more important things to do than stare at a screen all day" is actually the way I make my living.  :-)

Thanks for the author's email, I will make use of it.

Yes, my Wind and Rain update "Live" just fine too. What doesn't update is everything else. At noon my Temp is the same as it was when I started my trading day at 8 AM. Temp never updated.

I just checked my apps for updates in the Google Play Store.

I still have the latest version: 2.1.013 (384)

Does the "Temperature" plot with "Hourly Avg Temperature" show a flat line? My temp graph shows a rising temp until about noon and is now falling.

From the Davis website. Only the wind and rain is live. I don't usually have my phone open to the app all that long but when I tried it I have the same results as you. Sometimes mine stops reporting live unless I move the screen a bit.

WeatherLink Live goes beyond our industry-leading online data update rates. Use the WeatherLink iOS or Android app to watch wind gusts and direct changes as they occur. Connect to the same Wi-Fi network as your WeatherLink Live for real-time data updates.

Maybe look at the Bulletin via the browser app (on the phone) rather than the phone app?

If I don't "reload" the app, yes, it flat lines.

If I reload the app, thanks to the WLL storing data, the graph shows the rising temp.

Yes, that works to keep the app up-to-date, but it is only real-time once a minute. So it doesn't work to follow wind or rain "Live" as it is actually happening as I like to do.

Good News!

I phoned Davis and was informed that they were well aware of the "Live" complaints and were working on making the PC Browser app and the Android/iOS apps all completely "Live".
