    I'm trying to find the best site for viewing local radar. Accuweather was nice on my ppc but on the treo it really is pretty useless. Any other suggestions?

    Accuweather has a Treo site... http://pda.accuweather.com. But Weather Underground is grrat as well. I like them for tracking storms and snow. Just wish Blazer could do animated rader!
    Palm III -> Palm V -> Blue Palm Vx w/Omnisky -> Treo 270 -> Treo 600 -> Treo 650 -> Treo 680

    With a hardkey press of "W" I get the following local radar-loop for the NorthEast http://66.28.250.180/data/640x480/radara5_anim.gif

    You can optimize the page or widen the page via Blazer. Not sure where I found this but I recall there are various zones at least around the U.S. where you can select and make favorites on your system. I found this info somewhere here in the TC forums. Good luck.

    I found that if you change the "a5" in the filename to a1 through a5 that covers the northern U.S. b1-b5 is north-central, c1-c5 south-central, and d1-d5 the southernmost parts of the U.S. Great site, thanks!

    To expand even more on this, the previous link IS from Wunderground.com, and I think this radar view of the northeast is even better from there:

    http://maps.wunderground.com/data/64...ne_rd_anim.gif

    You can change is to se_rd_anim.gif for the southeast, sp_rd_anim.gif for texas and surrounding states, mw for the midwest, nw for the northwest and sw for the southwest. Good stuff. I never even thought about it until this thread. Thanks guys!

    I use "Express" for weather and love it. It also has a radar available on it.

    Express rocks, I must concur...

    Are there are any animated weather radar sites for the Tre 650? I ask becasue there are some pretty good animated radar applications that I use on my current Sanyo 4900. I guess these would be Java apps for the phone. If you cannot view animated radar in the Blazer browser, can you still view such applications through the Treo 650 phone like I've been doing on my OLD 4900?

    Thanks!
