    Hi..On the Auto Update, one of the choices is Realtime. What does it mean, and how often does it update when set to that ?

    Re: What does Realtime mean ?

    It means the data will be updated as it is received. Full updates usually occur once every 3-5 minutes. The current data in the "NOW" section of the main Weather Watcher Live window updates about every 5-30 seconds. The update rates vary from station-to-station.
