The Main Unit gives a rolling display of chosen parameters e.g. Wind, Air pressure, Rain etc. It also feeds data to the input of a computer, which translates it into a web site accordingly sent to the Internet.

The Display while not as colourful as many cheaper devices, provides an accurate dissection of data fed onward to the PC.
