Re: Davis VP2
- Davis sells a product called WeatherLinkIP that can upload to the web
without the use of a computer. As I recall, it comes with it's own
"logger" that goes inside the Davis console. It connects to your home
router and can upload to the Davis site as well as Weather Underground
and CWOP. The last time that I looked in to it, rapid fire was not yet
Greg is correct that the Weatherlink Logger is required to communicate
with the PC. There is a serial and USB version. The serial offers less
complication that the USB version that has troubles now and then. I
would go with the serial.
If you shop around, you might find a deal where the logger is bundled
with the station.

- I thought about that and it still could be but... the side it is on is for the water heater/ heating system and they don't run very often (use a wood stove mostly.) The vane is on the opposite side from the wood stove vent at least 3' (and 5' above.) I really don't have any other location so I may just have to live with it.
