The Best Parts of La Crosse V-40-Pro Weather Station Unboxed
So the thrill of getting something new always comes with a rush of adrenaline. Well, it did this time for me. [toc]
How exciting when I first cut the tape on my new La Crosse V-40-pro weather station. What makes it so exciting you may ask? Well, a great and fair question.
The reasons for my excitement are the following listed.
- The first thing I am always excited about is checking out a new product from La Crosse Technologies. Their products are of excellent quality and produce an excellent body of results for you.
- Secondly, I find their weather stations to be easy to set up and to use.
- Thirdly, I know if I have any problems the people at La Crosse are great to work with.
- And at last, I feel a kindred spirit to them in the sense that my wife and I visited their city (La Crosse, Wisconsin) and saw their headquarters in the last weekend of July 2018.

So Let’s Find Out What Is In the Box of the Lacrosse V-40-Pro
When the box is open the first thing that you will see prominently will be the multi-sensors unit, then there is the much smaller Thermo-Hygro sensor.
The multi-sensors unit is very large, the largest piece of this product set. The Thermo-Hygro sensor is much much smaller. They will be set up in different locations on your property.
Next, you will see protected in one corner of the box is the display screen. All of the readings are displayed for you here. Then you will also find two very important paper booklets.
One is the 6-page mini booklet with the explanation of how to set everything up, all instructions included are for setting up your new pro weather station.
A Quickstart Guide and a Smaller Sensor
First is the “Professional Remote Monitoring Weather Station Quick Start Guide”. This guide is basically three pages of simple well explained directions to get your V-40-Pro set up quickly and efficiently.
This guide will take you quickly through three basic phases for getting the two sensors operational.
The other Booklet is titled “Add-On Sensors”. The Add-on Sensors booklet is a booklet of other sensors that are available from La Crosse to add to your living quarters to enhance your lifestyle. This obviously is a sales brochure from La Crosse.
