Ratings and Reviews
Connect Device to Wifi
Instructions to wifi need to be much clearer. All that needs to connect device is to hold + and - buttons together until the wifi icon blinks. Then enter password if you are password protected then hit confirm. First page on app helps you set up the device ID and key. Then wifi icon will stop blinking. You are connected.
I gave it a rating of 2 stars as LaCrosse instructions are not as detailed as they need to be to use this app.
Successfully connected to WU
I was able to successfully connect to WU. Not sure if this helps anyone else, but just wanted to share, I connected my weather station to Wi-Fi using the La Crosse View App. After my station was connected to the internet, I then used the Weather Connect App to connect my station with my WU account. Do not use the Weather Connect app to set WiFi Device. I did not enter in my WiFi password into the weather connect app, just the PWS and Key. I first made the mistake and used my PWS ID and my WU login password. This was incorrect, I needed to used my "Key" that was assigned by WU as my Password. Without that key, WU will not allow data to be uploaded. It did take about 40 minutes after using the Key instead of my password before my station status updated to online. Hope this helps.
If it were not for KCS84's post below, this was going in the trash. I bought this to replace an Accurite station, install is super simple. Documentation does not exist, there are no instructions for recommended mounting positions. I had the same issue with my setup (Airport Extreme) 2.4Ghz and 5 Ghz both on, the station would connect to my wireless, but the app never indicated so, it would always show fail. Per the info in KCS84's post, I disabled the 5GHz on the router, and the app worked instantly. I re-enabled the 5GHz and still works just fine.
