Davis has discontinued the Davis 6555 WeatherlinkIP, I am looking for a datalogger that worked as it did, can the Wifilogger be a direct replacement to the 6555?
- Wifilogger2 is 100% comparable with WeatherLink IP
- Weatherlink PC and Mac software connection and WeatherLink.com upload works exactly the same as they did with the 6555
- Wifilogger2 is improved over the the original 6555 as it has a data export option.
- Wifilogger2 will work with WL.COM and WeatherUnderground with RapidFire
- Some users praise WiFiLogger for real time data display in HTML (web browser)
- For archive data best choice for today is WeatherLink PC and/or WL.COM account (with WL PC)
