Matching Readings

Two questions, please.  I am very new to your 5 in 1 Weather Station, but I really do love it - it is the best I have ever had and I  have now hooked up my new Access unit and it went very smoothly.  (1) Can I delete the PC Connect software on my computer now?  It keeps saying it cannot connect. (2)  Is it normal to have different readings from the Weather Station.  My Acurite on the the telephone and on the computer show the same readings, but the base station of the 5 in 1 reads differently.  For example - Mobile shows 57 temperature, Display shows 60. Mobile shows 92% humidity, Display show 80%. Mobile shows 30.25 Barometer, Display shows 29.92. Feels like shows 59 vs. 61. Wind shows 0 vs. 2 mph. (Model # of Weather Station = 06037 and 06014 and for the Access Unit = 09155M. Thank you for your help. Tom

Hello Tom,
Yes you can delete the PC Connect software.  You will only use this if you decide to connect the PC Connect display.  I do not see any calibrations entered on My AcuRite. Do you have calibrations entered on the display?  My AcuRite will update automatically every 5 minutes and the display updates every 18-36 seconds. The difference between the readings can be update intervals.  The barometric pressure reading will very likely be different. The display goes through the 14-33 day learning mode where the display is learning your altitude to provide accurate barometric pressure.  My AcuRite and the Access use the address information to provide this reading.  Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thank you.
