The highly affordable, Davis Vantage Vue Wireless Weather Station combines Davis Instruments' legendary accuracy and rugged durability into a compact station that's easy to install, set up and use. Made in the USA, the Vantage Vue includes a sleek but tough outdoor sensor array and a distinctive LCD console. Its unique Weather Center function provides additional information on each weather variable. In addition, Davis has made the Vantage Vue radio-compatible with their flagship Vantage Pro2 weather stations so you can mix-and-match most components!

Like the Davis Vantage Pro2, two key factors set Vantage Vue apart from most other complete weather stations, the refresh rate and the transmission distance:

  • Refresh Rate - A packet of data is sent from the outdoor transmitter to the receiver every 2 1/2 seconds! This means when you look out the window and see the wind blowing, the weather station will reflect it almost immediately.
  • Transmission Distance - Line of sight range is 1000'. Typical range under most conditions is 300' to 500'. This is a much greater distance than most other professional units

The Davis Vantage Vue also uses the same frequency-hopping spread spectrum radio technology as the Vantage Pro2 to wirelessly send data up to 1,000 feet and provides weather updates from the outdoor integrated sensor suite to the indoor console every 2.5 seconds.

With the indoor console's Weather Center feature, Vantage Vue provides extensive additional information for each weather variable. These include daily highs and lows, temperature changes by the hour, air pressure changes and astronomical data such as moon phase and meteor showers. Additional consoles can be purchased for placement in other areas of your home such as a den, bedroom or backyard.

To make viewing weather data easier at night, Davis designed the Vantage Vue console with an easy-to-read backlit LCD display with a glow-in-the-dark keypad. A data collecting device in its own right, the console's built in sensors provide indoor temperature and humidity as well as barometric pressure measurements.

The Vantage Vue's outdoor Integrated Sensor Suite (ISS) is energized by a solar panel during the day and stored energy for power at night, making it an ideal product or gift for the "green" consumer. To ensure product longevity, the ISS sensor electronics are sealed for added protection from the elements. The assembly is even cyclic corrosion tested to simulate harsh environments such as heat, humidity and seaside conditions.

Being radio-compatible with the Vantage Pro2, VP2 owners may purchase a Vantage Vue sensor suite or console and they will work together seamlessly.

Vantage Vue stations will also work with Davis Instruments' WeatherLink data-loggers. WeatherLink allows users to view their weather data either on a PC or to stream the data to the online cloud and upload near real-time weather information.

Considering the Vantage Pro2 as well? Visit our Davis Weather Stations Comparison Chart for an overview of capabilities between all models, including the Vantage Vue.

Note: We do carry magnetic compasses to help you orient your anemometer to true north. Those can be located under the "Accessories" tab. For more information on set up, please visit the anemometer page on our WeatherShack education center.

5 stars Simple setup, simple wireless connection, steady performer
With only the 1/2 page quick guide instructions the new Vantage View was setup and operational in less than an hour. This includes mounting 10 meters above ground to the gable end of the garage, aligning the solar panel due south, and wirelessly connecting to 2 consoles (1 new and the other 13 years old). Very well made, simple design, intuitive panel operation. My last unit served in all New England weather conditions for 13 years when the temperature sensor stopped reporting. I replaced the outdoor sensor unit and now have 2 consoles reading from the new unit. Total Plug and Play setup! Thanks Davis! Thanks Weathershack!

5 stars Great range and accurate sensors
I bought this station primarily because of the extended range between the station and the console. I am satisfied with the range; it allowed me to locate the station where I wanted to. The other reason I purchased this unit was because my old station (different brand) was not giving me accurate results. So far, the results seem to be accurate. The console looks very outdated, but the variety and scope of the data is impressive. Very happy with my purchase.

5 stars Davis vantage vue 6250 was fairly simple to set up.
Vantage Vue 6250 has been active for about a week, I did/do have an issue with the transmitter battery, but set up was fairly simple and works well. Information being provided is what I was wanting and seems to be working well.

5 stars Much nicer than the $129 alternatives
I've owned three of the $129 types made by other companies, and this Davis unit beats the pants off of all of them. Yes it costs more, but it's worth the extra money. A friend has had this same model for more than 10 years and his is still going strong, even after it suffered for many summers in the ridiculous heat here in South Texas.
