Only Lightning/2000 allows you to generate (and optionally email) a custom summary. The custom summary can contain virtually any information produced by Lightning/2000, and allows you to, through the use of conditional statements, determine exactly what information is produced. Also, the custom summary can now send an email or text message based on whatever criteria you choose.


Only Lightning/2000 lets you automatically send updates (tweets) to your Twitter account.


Only Lightning/2000 correctly differentiates and displays the various types of lighting flashes that occur. Cloud-to-ground and intercloud strokes and flashes of positive and negative polarity are detected and displayed.


ONLY Lightning/2000 identifies and displays flashes of lightning as they occur. Other lightning detection software detects and displays ill-defined "strokes" of lightning. But since many strokes comprise a visible flash, displaying the strokes is not reflective of what is going on in the real world.


Dozens of new storm analysis and display features.


Different stroke and flash types are displayed and tallied separately (when using the Boltek StormTracker hardware).


Automatic FTP and EMail features. Upload any or all of 6 different images, as often as once per minute and/or attach any of these images to an automatically generated email.


Automatic capture and upload of 8 different windows.


Over three dozen customizable audio warnings that YOU define.


User-selectable stroke click sound.


Real-time lightning strength indicator.


The included background maps include counties, parks, federal lands, lakes, interstate highways and more. And you may add any number of cities, towns, roads, and many other features to the map.


Completely user-configurable colors, fonts, alarm levels, and more. Yet it can be used by the novice user immediately with no special configuration required.
