Hello Mark,

There is no learning mode for the smartHUB. You have station pressure selected which is the exact measurement that is taken by the smartHUBs internal barometer. It does not include any adjustments for altitude.  Adjusted pressure which is the default for My AcuRite is the pressure that has been adjusted for altitude based off the postal information that is entered on your device profile. We would recommend changing it to adjusted pressure to see if it reads more closely to other stations. Thank you.

Here is what I did with that exact same issue:
First of all, the SmartHUB has it's own barometer? I'd like to know why we can't just pick the data off the 5-in1 Sensor and be done with it?

Anyway. I set my device settings to Adjusted Pressure, just as Jennifer suggested and I was still way high. Pressure today was 29.93 inHg and it showed 30.01 inHg.
So what you want to do is "cheat" on the elevation.

My Elevation is (per Acurite data) 795ft MSL and I set it to 700 ft MSL and voila,
my Station now coincides with nearby other stations and a close-by airport.

I had to do the same thing with my previous LaCrosse Station.
That things was consistently off.

Yes, the SmartHUB has it's own baro sensor.

You can't get baro data from the 5n1 sensor because it does not have a baro sensor.

Oh it's only in the display. Yeah that makes sense then.

Thanks.

This whole Barometer from address thing is odd. I have 2 @ 2in 1 towers at eye level and a 5 in 1 on a 25' mast  (grade is pretty flat). Some of the nearby streets are steep. 2 nearby addresses can be a 100' different.
There is a reason Airplane pilots get CURRENT Altimeter readings. The ground (apparently) moves up and down with weather

Do you have an idea how long it usually takes for the correction to take effect? I ran over 24 hours with wrong pressure data and no change.

It has been known to take up to a month.

Oh Wow. I'm just afraid that with a pressure measurement that far off, they will take my station off the map until that issue is corrected, even if it's on their side...

Wunderground is a mess, especially when it comes to pressure.

Even if you send a sea-level pressure, they might still adjust it to fit their whim.  It's really upset a lot of experienced users.

I wouldn't worry about it.
