Hello, I have a 02086CCDI weather station. In the manual under Calibration it states the Barometric Pressure (must be set to Manual mode to calibrate)* What does this mean? Does it mean I can self adjust the BP in the calibration mode only if the BP is set to a manual setting? And normally I would leave it in the auto setting? The manual not clear to me which setting I should normally leave it set on. Thanks for your help in this matter.

Hello Jon,

If you would like to calibrate the pressure in order to do it must be put to manual mode first. Thank you. Enjoy your day!

Thanks but that didn't answer my question....=o( I don't have a manual barometer to set it manually. So when you suggest this you might suggest that a person have a manual barometer too, to save time and confusion, and because AcuRite's help is so hard to come by! Your instructions state that you can set the barometric pressure manually but fails to state how one achieves the proper value of numbers to manually program computers barometric pressure. Do we just pluck a number out of thin air and manually program that as the right value of number, I don't think so. And I could find no answer to this in your instructions or help post threads. It might save a person days of reading and responding to posted messages if you would state this in your post and in your instructions. And I left a call back number 1.5 days ago of which no call has come through, to add to the wasted time. The barometric pressure is the main component to accurately determine the weather and if it is not set properly the machine is useless. I have a thermometer, clock, and a calendar for the moon. So without the proper barometric pressure I have another nice dust collector that needs batteries. 

"What I want to know is do I have to leave it in Auto mode for the self-calibrating barometric pressure to work accurately in 14 days?"

Please answer this question, thanks...........=o(

 1. My first question was: do you leave it in "Manual" mode or "Auto" mode after you manually            program it?

2. My second question is: do I leave it in "Auto" mode for the self-calibrating barometric pressure to set and work accurately in 14 days?

Please answer these 2 questions, thanks.

Hello Jon,

We apologize that you got hung up on. We will look into this. The only time you would need to calibrate the pressure is if you are getting an inaccurate reading for your pressure. The display will go through the 14 day learning mode where it will use an algorithm to calculate your pressure and forecasting. After the learning mode is complete you should see an accurate pressure. If you do not then we would recommend calibrating the barometric pressure. In order to calibrate the pressure you would have to put the weather station in manual mode by holding the gear button for about 10 seconds, and you will see manual appear next to the barometric pressure. Once the pressure is calibrated you will want to leave it in manual so it displays the calibrated value. Before making any adjustments you want to make sure the learning mode is complete on the display. Thank you. Have a good day!

Ok thanks. I understand how to operate the unit to set it to auto or manual. After the leaning mode is complete how does one tell if the unit is the right barometric pressure, what do I use to tell if the machine has the correct barometric pressure. A barometer? If so, you could have saved us and everyone a whole lot of time if you would just say that in the instructions. Now I have to wait yet another day to get an answer to my original question from last week. But a nice try though...

Hello Jon,

You would need to compare the pressure to something in your area. You can do this via Weather Underground, and compare it to local stations in your area. Thank you.
