Toward the middle or end of March 2014, Bushnell and Accuweather terminated their data sharing contract for the Weather FXi, Hunt FXi and Golf FXi internet-based weather stations. Since the forecast information is freely available on Accuweather's website, all Bushnell would have to do is fix/update the software to grab the data a different way. These were awesome weather stations when they worked and now Bushnell has decided to brick them by refusing to update the software. They have our money and now we have electronic waste paperweights to pollute the landfills. What a great business decision for them! I for one have decided to never buy any Bushnell products again and I hope everyone else who Bushnell screwed over by this decision to brick perfectly good weather stations also decides to boycott Bushnell products.

Heat pump not keeping up to set temperature on thermostat but never drops below 63 degrees whens its 20 degrees outside.


It may be getting low on refrigerant due to a small leak. I'd have it serviced soon. When running at less than peak efficiency it will much more often switch on the heat strips and they are not cheap to operate.

The sensor from my weather station is not registering outside temperature


I've had the same problem since I bought this unit 2+ years ago; when the outside temperature moves into the freezing zone, the sensor stops transmitting. I contacted Lacrosse-- all they could suggest was change the batteries. My solution: throw it in the trash!

I received a Bushnell 5-day forecaster last year. It has worked perfectly until several weeks ago - it now shows 'network lost...try another location'. It started working a few days ago...and now it's back...


I have very briefly researched the device and find it isn't really a forecaster but a device that receives weather reports and sorts them but it isn't made clear how it accesses those Accuweather reports that are available by smartphone app or internet.
I speculate the device must either use any wireless local area network or it must access the mobile telephone network, which makes little sense as it is supposed to be a free service and mobile internet service providers usually wouldn't give anyone free access.

Perhaps the answer will be found in the device instruction manual.

If it is supposed to work through free access to the mobile telephone network, perhaps the cause is the service providers are flexing their muscles. There was some feeling a few years ago the Accuweather reports should be removed from the public domain and perhaps this is the beginning of a resurgence of that feeling.

The heater will not kick on. It's a programable 7 day that reads 69 degrees and if I arrow up to 72 degrees, nothing happens


Change Temperature Setting Until the Next Program Period (Temporary Change)
? Press UP Arrow or DOWN Arrow until the screen shows the desired temperature setting.
NOTE: The temporary temperature setting is displayed for about 3 seconds and then the room temperature is displayed.
Temporary appears in the display. The setting cancels when the next program period starts or when
you press RUN PROGRAM.

Change Temperature Setting Indefinitely (Hold)
? Move the System switch to the desired position (Heat or Cool).
? Press HOLD TEMP then UP Arrow or Down Arrow to change your setting if desired. (The display changes from showing the setpoint
temperature to room temperature after approximately three seconds).
? To cancel Hold press RUN PROGRAM.


The downloadable manuals for this t-stat are here, and the addendum, here. Page 17 and 18 detail thermostat operation I have copied above. It has graphic representations of keys that do not copy over very well, so if you have questions about the steps above, you should view the manual in the links provided above.

I hope this helps! Please take a moment to rate my reply - thanks!
