  • Be aware that prolonged exposure of placing the Geo 6000 or the Pro 6 on your vehicle dash-board or over the air vents during extreme heat and or cold may cause the barometer to not work properly.  This can further lead these devices to lock up when leaving the vehicle to collect data in the opposite thermal condition.
