Since the WMR100 is a USB station, WeatherTracker should find it automatically and start downloading data immediately. If the display shows an error message then consult the support forums for troubleshooting help.

The WMR100 settings are divided into sections...

1) Station Setup
2) Weather Data
3) Weather Database
4) Weather Underground
6) Custom Upload

Section 1 - Station Setup

Station Name: This is the name you gave the station when it was first setup. It is not changeable.
Channel X Sensor Name: If you have extra sensors for your WMR100 you can name them here for convenience of display on the main display.

You have the option of recording to the database instantaneous weather data sampled at a regular intervals. If you want this real-time data written to the database then check the "Log real time data to database" check box and set the interval on how often to write out a record.

Section 3 - Weather Database

Table Name: Set the name of the table in the database. You would usually only change this if you were already recording data to a table other than the default of "WXData".

Database Options-
Regular WeatherTracker Database (SQLite v3): This is the default. The database will be stored in the folder reserved for application data as a SQLite version 3 database. This application data location varies depending on operating system, Windows or Macintosh. You can easily find the location of the database by choosing "Open Support Folder" from the "Help" menu. A window open to the support folder will open.
ODBC Database: If you want to write the data to your own database that supports and ODBC connection choose this option. The "Choose..." button will allow you to choose an ODBC datasource that you have previously defined using the proper utility for your operating system. Mac users should look into ODBC Administrators Tool. Windows users can use the default ODBC Administration tools installed with windows.

This is used for a specific application to send weather data to a web site and process that data using a PHP script. If you don't know what this is used for then you don't need to use it. It's probably going away anyways, so don't worry about it.
