  1. Hi Steve,

    I have a Vantage Pro2 that has an IPdatalogger installed. It works fine, but I would like to find an app that would give me access to my VP through my WiFi, so that I can see my weather data “live” instead of the static data I get with PWSMonitor or WunderStation. Because the Davis IPdatalogger only sends IP data packets to Davis’ network, the only way to have access to the data without paying for an upgraded account (allowing more frequent uploads to Wunderground, etc.), is to accept an upload to Wunderground once every fifteen minutes! I realize that I could devote a computer to run Davis software or Cumulus, and I have, but I got really weary of keeping that dedicated computer running. Any thoughts?

  2. WunderStation is dead.

    Long live WunderStation

    Looks like some time during 2Q2020 they retired it. Launching it yields the error message “This App Has Retired” Trying to open links to the App Store give you “App Not Available “
