    The app looked great at first, but once I adjusted it manually there was no way to get it back to reading automatic. Also, I could not figure out how to change it to a digital readout like the screen shots indicate is possible. Potential is there! *edit I discovered you also need to download the weather station app to obtain proper readings. That corrected it! Still not sure what barometric press

    Why would you bother with something that is not as accurate as GPS
