The INO Weather Pro by INO Technologies is the first handheld device to combine weather data with lightning detection, making it easier for boaters to make informed safety decisions while they’re out on the water when the weather turns foul.
This feature-rich product can detect the distance of cloud-to-ground lightning strikes as far away as 40 miles, in addition to heat index, altitude, dew point, and other weather intelligence sensors. An updatable software interface and touch screen display enables you to customize your dashboard. This portable device is also highly water resistant, runs on a USB charged Lithium battery, and has an MSRP of $497.
“Though most lightning detection technology relies on national weather data feeds and requires an Internet or cellular connection, the INO Weather Pro has its own sensor providing real-time local lightning detection and direction anywhere, anytime—critical information necessary to keep your crews safe. No other device has all the features we’ve included,” explains Michael Lands, INO Technologies founder. He continues, “We’ve perfected the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ approach to personal weather intelligence by combining lightning, temperature, atmospheric pressure and humidity sensors in a single, handheld device...The INO Weather Pro adds the missing link of lightning detection to these classic weather indicators, plus heat index, altitude and dew point for a total of seven full-service capabilities.”
