The all new La Crosse View app from La Crosse Technology, provides a world class, weather app experience. The app works by connecting to one of our new La Crosse View Ready Personal Weather Stations, connecting you to your home anytime, anywhere. Unlike most weather apps that show weather from a predetermined location you could be miles from, La Crosse View allows you to see your home environment, such as wind speed and direction, rainfall, temperature, and humidity, as well as customize alerts, study, track, and monitor your weather with graphs, personalize your sensor locations with personal images, and so much more! The La Crosse View opens your station to a whole new set of features that is displayed on your station using our innovative data stream technology. You’ll now enjoy weather data from the National Weather Service, time and date information from the National Institute of Standards and Technology, customizable display options, and the option of displaying sensor data from additional sensors. The innovative and easy-to-navigate design, ensures a user friendly experience for all ages. Download now to start enjoying the View!
User interface update.
Ratings and Reviews
La Crosse View App is cumbersome at best
First let me say - We love our La Crosse weather station! We do NOT love the App for viewing on our phones or computer. It’s not user friendly - it slides between each devices reading which makes it hard to read the screen, the display of temp, humidity and the graphs are placed in a cumbersome order causing one to double look and check again before realizing what your looking at, each devices screen is basically the same so your searching for the reference- “Am I looking at Wind or Rain or Inside or outside Temp” the reference is like an after note at the top of the page and since the pages slide between each device it’s difficult at best reading your information. The graphs are great ideas but very basic, not real easy to read. This App has good ideas it just needs to be massively updated with different colors (get rid of the hard to read light blue colored fonts!), defining pages that swipe between devices (not flow between devices), make the statistics for each devices page literally on the page so I don’t have to continuously scroll down to read everything, maybe define each device in your App like La Cross does on the weather panel so that every device and its reading is consistent throughout the La Cross brand. La Crosse has a good product hopefully they can make it better by improving their Software
Lacrosse weather station doesn’t work
I had the device for about three months. Almost every single time I opened my phone app, it displayed only dashes as it did not show any of the information? Several days would go by and none of the digits displayed on the device would change? Clearly as cold as it has been, The temperature would go way down at night and back up again later in the day but the device did not display this? I contacted the company a few times and one of the times they replied back saying that the device will only update once every six hours. So basically four times within a 24 hour. The device changes which means at that exact moment it is displaying possibly the correct digits, but for the next six hours it’s only displaying what it was six hours ago?? In our case the numbers were not even changing and on the phone app it almost always displayed nothing at all. The company never contacted us back the other times and the information they gave us initially did not help so we finally returned the weather station. We purchased one for a Christmas gift for somebody and they are having the same problem. The information displayed even if correct is on our phone app on a regular basis so it’s kind of useless because we were to the understanding it would show the information from right outside of our home. Walmart sells a device for under $10 that shows your inside and outside temperature on real time not only once every six hours.
Unexpected and Exceptional
Got this as a unexpected gift and had no idea the amount of detail it actually offers. The set up was good with one issue: No Wireless MAC Address label to be found. So I disabled my MAC filtering on the WiFi router, connected it, went into my router’s settings on the internet and saw the address that way, added it to my address list and re-enabled the filter. The app works seamlessly on an iPhone 7 Plus. I have experienced zero issues. You can also add other sensors that you buy for a cottage, barn, or dog house etc and use your personal pictures as a background for each location of the sensor you wish to see readings on. This set up with the app and device is working so far. I’ll update my review in 2 months but as of now it works perfectly.
4 months later and everything is going good sensor wise but display wise there’s issues. I just managed my data stream, deleted cloud cover which only reads a percentage and says auto/auto next to it in the ticker, deleted snow accumulation which read normal, added wind speed, and possibility of damaging thunderstorms, and for some reason it won’t update correctly and I get an error in the app.
I took two stars away
