The version 2 of Davis is now charging a monthly fee.  They have dumped my version and now I cannot send to Weather Undergroud.

https://www.davisinstruments.com/weatherlink/ seems to indicate that the free plan allows 3rd party uploads every 15 minutes.  Let me know if that is not the case.

yes, that's what I see too.  The Weatherlink product manager wrote me yesterday and we worked through the upload to Weather Underground.  We found my password needed to be reset on Weather Underground.  So now I have uploads working.  I took advantage of the 30 day trial to test things out.  It does seem if I don't continue with Weatherlink 2.0 I will not be able to see my old GUI with version 1.  Uplinks will still happen every 15 minutes rather than 5.  No big deal with that. But I'm not happy to lose my original GUI which I thought was very effective and all I needed.

I like the Weatherlink 2.0 so far, and signed up for the Pro plan which allows 5 minute uploads to WU. However, while I do see shorts periods of time where updates might be every five minutes, often there may be 30 minutes or more between updates. Is this a problem I need to direct to Weatherlink or a problem with WU? Is there anything I can do as a user to keep a consistent 5 minute update going?
thank you

still using the weatherlink 2.0, My station is going to get replaced hopefully this spring,
and for the cost, I'll send my old one back for the refurb. I have a few family
members that want to know what the weather is at their homes.
