    We've got one of these, you can pop the outside sensor just inside your lower fridge vent so you don't leave it behind!
    It can be quite interesting seeing what is going on with the temperature inside and out!
    The barometer seems to give a reasonably accurate forecast too!:thumb:

    We've had one for at least six years, same make, purchased from Aldi, never let us down yet and ours is wall mounted.

    There are two versions, a 'landscape' layout and a 'portrait' layout, if that makes sense!

    Both are available in black, or white for you Apple fans!

    They have an integral stand and a slot in the back for mounting to a screw in the wall.

    Ours is stuck to the MH interior with sticky-backed velcro strip and hasn't moved in a year!:thumb:

    We placed our exterior sensor just inside our lower fridge vent so that it is always receiving a flow of external ambient air whilst being out of the way of road spray, rain, etc.. This way, we are assured of accuracy and not losing the sensor by leaving it on a pitch somewhere!:Smile:

    BTW, Paul, it worked faultlessly at VT! No need to lag it!!!

    + 1 I've had a couple of these for a while - one at home and one at work [pre-retirement]. Both very useful in determining how many layers were needed for the outward/homeward cycle commute! The 'work' one has now been installed in the van, with the external sensor ziptied to the bike rack [they are fully waterproof] and the display unit standing on a shelf but bluetacked to the wall. The 'max/min' function has been useful as I leave the heating on at 'frost' setting - means I can check it's working. Very reliable - just replace the batteries every once in a while. Recommended, if you're in the market for such a device!

    Have you seen all the other stuff on that link, even folding soft ground pads rated at 3T.

    It's just too dangerous to go in :cry:

    And their Tiramisu is to die for.

    If you are stood in front of one you will find out very quickly.
