Any way to use an Android tablet as a bridge to send data to weather underground instead of a PC?

I have a 5 in 1 pro weather station (model 2064). I am currently using my laptop to send data to Wundergound. I have an LG tablet that can accept a full/standard USB connector. It would be easier for me to have the tablet running and transmitting than my LT. IS that a possibility?

Thanks, Dan

I believe the PC connect software is written for windows and Mac, you would be better off getting a smarthub.

You are probably right, but I have the tablet, the smart hub is $80.

I don't know of anything that is written for Android tablets.

There are programs you can run on things like a Raspberry Pi, though, that will send data to wunderground (e.g. weewx).  If you can get Linux running on a piece of hardware, there's a good chance you might get weewx running on it, too.

Hello Dan,

At this time you cannot use a tablet to transfer data to Weather Underground.  This has to be done from a computer.  We would recommend using the smartHUB if this is not convenient for you.  We see you have already looked into this option but, have added a link below for your convenience.  Please let us know if you have any other questions.  Thank you and have a great day!
