"Where does one begin?"

April 06, 2014  |  By dougclind

 |  Version: Weather Display 10.37R Build 67

Pros

Lots and lots and lots of features and the graphs are good.

Cons

The features don't work reliably, the displays are generally amateurish, the support is poor, and the software requires EXTENSIVE time and effort to comprehend.

Summary

Ok, I'm trying to use this with an Oregon Scientific WMR100. I've actually had the software and the ws for about 6 years. I initially dumped both after 2 years in favor of a Davis Vantage Pro station and Weatherlink IP s/w. That suite isn't perfect but at least it works reliably and it wasn't hard to set up. On the other hand, WeatherDisplay is impossibly bloated with unexplained features. The reason I'm trying to use it again is since I paid for it and I had the hardware and s/w doing nothing, I donated it to a local club and now I'm actually trying to get it working usefully.

If you are a weather professional AND you are an internet "professional" AND you have the right operating system (I'm not sure which one the author is using) AND you luck out and get the weather station hardware which actually works with his software, AND you have a reliable, high speed internet connection AND perhaps you are just plain lucky AND you have unlimited time to search through forums and FAQ's ... then you'll probably give the s/w 5 stars. Otherwise, I would suggest you try something else. Or you could write your own, if you have the knowhow.

I mean, the author HAS tried to put everything possible into his software and have it work with every possible weather station. You have to give him credit for that. But ready-for-prime-time? No.

I could try to detail all the problems I've had trying to get this s/w to run but what's the point? At the moment I've spent maybe 30 hours fiddling and diddling with this and my patience is gone.
