Does anyone know if the outside temperature display can be calibrated? Mine seems to be reading several degress high. Seems worse the higher the temperature. For example when the outside temperature is say 75 (according to several sources) the display will show 79 or 80. Today is was 105 in Phoenix and my display was showing 112. I noticed all last summer it was reading several degress too high.

I may have found the answer in other posts. It appears the temperature sensor is very low to the ground. Living in Phoenix, temperature near the ground (asphalt) is most likely hotter than the surrounding air, which obviously explains why mine is reading high. Also explains why the temperature difference is greater in higher temperatures.
So, do you guys think that is whats gong on here?
