Day Rain total discrepancy Cumulus MX and VP2 console

Post by raul_sbd »

Hello all

I just have noticed there is a small discrepancy between my console total rain for the day currently at 18.6mm and what it shows on the gauges currently at 19.2mm so seems to be always a 0.6mm difference.. any idea how easy will be for me to correct this?

Thanks in advance!!

In the Dashboard click on Edit and use Todays Rain to change the value.

Ah... I deleted my post as it is about the interface and not the website

Check the console time is set correctly. Their clocks do drift, MX reports in the MXdiags log if there is difference at startup. It also has the option to set the console clock in the settings.

If the day starts at different times then then total is going to be different if it was raining at midnight

It is highly unlikely that the rain needs correcting in MX for this.

Spot on - that will have been the reason the time on the console shows like 5 min behind

Many Thanks all

Is it possible to edit the value after the decimal point in the year rain total on the Davis VP2 console?

I believe the correct figure is showing in my MX reports: I believe the console figure is in error.
