The other feature I wanted is the ability to see at least the temperature on the remote sensor; not all of these devices have that feature, so I was looking for that specifically. According to the product description, "One remote sensor (TS13C) included." Amazon sells that sensor, and according to both Amazon.com and Meade's website, the TS13C has a little LCD on it with the temperature.
"Perfect!", I thought to myself, having looked at quite a few of these stations. (A large portion of them don't have indoor humidity.) Ordered, received...and discovered that the remote sensor HAS NO LCD. It's actually a TS21 sensor, which is what it's supposed to be according to the manual, so Amazon's product description was incorrect.
The base unit itself is pretty nice. There's no clutter, as mentioned above, just the temperature and humidity in huge text, the time, and a simple "comfort" reading in tiny enough text that I can barely notice it, which is great! The unit is a bit large, but the stated dimensions of 7" wide by 4.8" tall are accurate, so I expected this. Aesthetically, it looks pretty nice; sleek and modern without seeming cheap or tacky. A backlight would be nice too, especially at this price point; some of the cheaper stations do have one, but then again the text is huge so I can read it just fine unless it's extremely dark.Read more ›
The second big problem is that the time radio signal receiver is very weak. I have a basic (and inexpensive) "atomic clock" mechanism that I put into a clock when the original mechanism wore out, and it receives the time signal all over my house; but this Meade product only gets the signal in small areas around just 4 windows in my house -- it gets no signal in most of my (basic wood frame) house. I tested it next to my other "atomic clock" mechanism in many places, and it got no signal almost everywhere, although my other one did. Indeed, I have it now where I can see it, but it is not in a practical place and it still does not get the WWV time signal -- I just set the clock by hand, and hope the thing keeps pretty good time on its own until the battery runs down. So far, it has kept pretty good time without the WWV signal.Read more ›

purchased this for our older class c motorhome fits in perfectly and seems to be accurate....Published 2 months ago by DCJCSPLP
I like this except they put the outside weather at the top with bigger numbers and the inside temp & clock are smaller below. It should be just the opposite in my opinion. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Ladybug

This unit is lousy. After one year the outdoor temp stopped working. Just threw it away. Also very complicated and difficult to read. Very unhappy about it.Published 4 months ago by Gary L. Hagen
I can't complain. It provides me with what I really need: Inside & outside temperature. Setup was easy and the LED provides me with simple, easy-to-read information. Read morePublished 4 months ago by B. Hepler
The remote wireless sensor, that is supposed to be installed outside the house, is not weather proof. A light rain and the device stopped to work.Published 4 months ago by Carlindo
Tried a number of other remote temp gauges and Meade is the best. Good reception and one isn't always replacing batteries.Published 6 months ago by Greg J.
