Hello folks,
So this has just arrived - here's a few photos of the unit itself and what you get in the box.

You mean I don't have to climb onto my roof and put the Anemometer on a 20 foot pole?! ThU32:-)

Not so fast you virtual dreamer!! Looks like one still needs a boatload of sensors, including a suitably mounted Anemometer, rain gauge, various temp sensors, etc. along with a Vantage View. Looks like it is a great replacement for the Console with much improved and power-saving electronics, WiiFi networking and more 'channels' than most anyone would need.

Wonder if multiple, duplicate sensors ( 2 or 3 outside temperature sensors, for example ) could be 'averaged' into a single value? :-\ I see many, many more WC tags coming! ;D

I think my WLL is great. The big advantage for me was being able to move the solar sensor from the ISS in the garden to my roof wind transmitter.

The VP2 restriction of only reading solar values from the primary ISS is history and I can ditch my "relay" device that emulated an ISS. The WLL allows you to connect the sensors to any (ISS type) transmitter you may have.
