I just cant trust Acurite anymore. They keep offering upgrade to make their system work right. First the $30 solar upgrade for the 5 in 1. Then the remote battery pack which should have been included in the first place. But now if we want our $120 smart hubs to work we have to buy a new one for $129 as the old ones will no longer work. I got mine less then a year ago and Acurite is offering a new one at a so called discount of $40 for a limited time. Still too much for an item that cant cost more than $15 to manufacture. Seems like someone in the marketing department keep coming up with ways to make more $$$ for the company. By making the old smart hub obsolete its a win for Acurite. Truth be known the first one had so many bugs that they had to invent a new one. And it's still NOT Wifi. But don't worry smarthub fans. Acurite will come up with a wireless smart hub 'upgrade soon'.
For now I have no intention of upgrading anything from Acurite. My next upgrade will be from a trustworthy company. If I want to see the weather in my neighborhood from my cell phone I will just log onto to weatherunderground and find someone near me.
