@TraderGary: Just to illustrate, this is what I mean by live:

This is a 2-minute real-time video of wind speed and direction gauges in CumulusMX running on a Raspberry Pi and with data from a WLL I've uploaded. Not specially exciting  ;) but hopefully it does show the point. These gauges are updating to IIRC a 3-second interval. Occasionally the speed or direction will be identical to the last reading and so the dial won't move, but most updates one or the other moves.

NB This is ~x2 enlarged from the original screen resolution (must have missed a setting when recording) so image sharpness isn't great, but hopefully it illustrates the point.

That's the kind of response I want to see! Now the Davis boys need to build that in to their current WeatherLink apps. And you've demonstrated that it is indeed possible! Thanks!

Well, as I say, I'm not expecting to see that from the Davis browser app, at least not any time soon, though of course I could be proved wrong. But I suspect that you really need to add a 3rd party solution like CMX/Pi to get it now.
