Firmware-Update der Davis-Konsole?

Normalerweise heißt es ja, mach nicht an einem funktionierendem System rum.

Ich bin Neuling und habe nach einigem Hin und Her eine Vantage 2 Pro Plus samt Funk-Anemometer-Kit in Gang bekommen.

Im Handbuch heißt es, scheck die Firmware-Versionsnummer. Meine Firmware-Version ist 1.82.

Bei Prodata heißt es über den Changelog:

Version 3.80 (February 21st 2018)

Modified heat index table to better support high temp and high humidity environments.

Version 3.65

Restored “Receiving From” from initial boot screen for easier setup configuration.

Version 3.62

Minor improvements to allow use of new (or alternate)Temp/Hum and Barometer.
Added additional support for international radio frequencies.

Version 3.15 (March 27, 2014)

Minor improvements in firmware efficiency.

Version 3.12 (Feb 8, 2013)

Fixed a bug in 3.00 that did not allow the ET alarm to be cleared.
Eliminates occasional WeatherLink communication issue when console is busy receiving a radio packet.

Version 3.00

Console timesout of the “Receiving From” setup screen after 15 min using batteries and 30 min using AC power.
Previous versions of firmware allowed a negative ET, now it will clip hourly ET values at 0.
Added leading zero to temp readings between -1.0 and 1.0.
Improved temp and hum index calculations.
Low humidity readings now clipped at 1% and will not show 0%.

*There was a jump in VP2 firmware version numbers from v1.90 to v3.00 for undisclosed reasons.

Version 1.90 (Feb 18, 2010)

!This is an important version because it introduces the LOOP2 record (hence the comment re CWOP uploads supporting 2-min mean wind speeds etc), even though the changelog does not officially mention LOOP2. It is therefore the oldest firmware version that is properly compatible with the WiFi logger. Remember also that consoles made prior to April 2006 (check the Mfg Code ) cannot be updated to firmware versions later than v1.90 because of console hardware incompatibilities.

CWOP uploads will now contain 2 min average wind speed, 10 min wind gust and direction of gust, last 15 minutes of rain, last 1 hour of rain and Altimeter. Must also have WeatherLink software v5.9.0 or later to use this feature.
Fixed clearing of yearly ET history data.
Fixed a bug that caused the barometer value to have a large error after updating to firmware version 1.82.
Fixed a bug that when changing units in software caused the console to not reflect the change immediately.
Fixed graph so that zooming to a different span always starts at the first point.
Fixed display of historical yearly rain totals over 813 mm for 0.2 mm rain collectors (highs, lows and graphs).
You can now only get to the Receive Diagnostics Screen from the Current Screen.

Version 1.82 (December 30, 2008) – Wireless Version

So richtig schlau bin ich daraus nicht geworden.

Hallo Jost,
ich würde es ohne zwingenden Grund nicht machen, denn die Version 1.82 ist prinzipiell schon mal in Ordnung. Du wirst also vermutlich als "normaler" User keinen Vorteil davon haben.
Und wenn Du, was man vermeiden kann, trotzdem eine falsche Update-Version erwischst, hast Du ein echtes Problem. Es macht z.B., einen Unterschied, ob der Logger in der Davis Konsole oder im Envoy sitzt.
Selbst Davis, rät dazu, es nicht grundlos zu machen.
Lies dazu auch das Statement von Davis:
