The weather station is great and works wonderfully. The only thing keeping this from a better rating is the non-comaptiabliity with with Macs. I'm not much in to the data keeping, as much as the "now" reports on the unit base. So didn't keep me from getting the unit, but software should be put out for Macs, limits customers base.

Nice unit when it worked. After a bit of rain water got into the wind unit and corroded/shortcircuited the sensor. The response from LaCrosse was a constant exchange of e-mails with colored, big-font questions and admonitions about batteries (which brand, how old, etc) but no real resolution. I am now left with the unit that has no wind sensor.
Also, the software to transfer data to the PC is (again) nice when it works. Almost every time when the computer is put on standby the synchronization with the weather unit drops (which is understandable) but when the computer wakes up re-synchronization either happens with a long delay(tens of minutes or even hours) or does not happen at all requiring manual resynchronization. Even worse is the situation when the central unit loses communication with temperature, rainfall or wind sensors. To re-establish communication, LaCrosse requires to take out all batteries, put them in a specific order and jump through hoops. All in all a FRUSTRATING experience with a product that looks good but is junk!

    Took a few days before the wind sensor would work.
    I thought this would have a 24 hr hi and low temp and wind chill readings but it don't.

        Comments about La Crosse Technology Professional Weather Center WS-2810U-IT with Solar Wind Sensor:

        All efforts were expended but we were not able to get the wind speed/direction indicator to work. Several resyncs and several factory restarts were done, and the wind indicators were still "flat-lined". It appears that since both sensors are not working indicating that the unit itself may be not sending. Since there are no batteries to access, I do not know if the internal batteries are charging or the RF section of the unit is not working. In either case, this makes the unit almost useless as the main portion that I was looking forward to was the wind indicators.

        Yes, the photocell cover has been removed. Had it in bright light for a while to include outside. Still not working. Distance not a problem, as the units were all inside with about 5 feet spacing between each to insure no interfernce.

        The outdoor temp/humidity and rain work fine. Only the wind indicators are not working.

        Regards,
