    I love my Treo for weather radar. I can call up the NWS radar, but only the still pictures.

    When I try a loop like "http://www.nws.noaa.gov/radar/loop/DS.p37cr/si.khgx.shtml" Blazer is lacking a java function that is needed to play the loop.

    Anybody know of a browser that can play the radar loops or a radar site that shows direction of storm movement with an arrow.

    Try this link on Blazer:

    http://radblast.wunderground.com/cgi...=-7&transy=110

    It is for Tampa weather but you can modify it for your area.

    I'm not sure if this is going to work...

    If it does, just copy and paste the html below and save it to a file on your homepage or your private website.

    If you don't have that, then you can use these links:

    ALSO: after the radar loads you can use the (I have the treo 600)
    "menu, wide" and the "menu, optimized" commands to zoom in and out.

    This worked.

    I am taking the simple route and using the Weather Underground site which I think both of you guys pointed me too. Slower due to all the adds, but good interface to pick cities and control the radar image (framesa, zoom, pan)

    BTW, what does the HTML code do? It looks very interesting.

    Actually, the links I posted will show the radars without the adds. It is much faster!

    The HTML code is a Mosaic of non-looping regional radars that cover the whole U.S. Actually they overlap each other just a little bit. The images in the mosaics are live data. You can then click on any one of the non-looping images and go to a looping regional radar. All of these do not have the advertisements, so they are much faster to load. Just copy the HTML text and paste it in MS Frontpage or simular editor.

    ddeger, did you even try a simple search for the subject? I doubt you did because if you had you would have found this:

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/se...earchid=364184

    and then the second link down would have revealed this:

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...ighlight=radar

    which is a complete write up I did about radar on the Tero.

    Shame on you for not doing a search!

    This html works GREAT. I cut it into notepad, e-mailed to myself (I have Snappermail), opened it with Blazer, then did a "save page". I now have this very nice piece of HTML code stored on my Treo. I also modified pireek's link from Tampa to Houston (HGX) and have an add-free local Houston radar loop.

    I don't know how to get the html code into Blazer for someone with a less capabile e-mail application. Probably someway to sync it over and use "file://..." in Blazer to open.

    For those that want a better user interface, but comes with adds, do a google on "weather undergound" and use their site.

    My Treo is now a fully functional weather radar!!!

    This will work from the mail program that comes with the Treo600.

    From your PC copy the HTML and paste it into Notepad.
    Save the file as "Radars.html".
    From your PC attach the file "Radars.html" to an email and send it to your phone.
    Open the email on your phone and then open the attached file.
    While viewing the radar mosaic, you can hit Menu,Save Page, and save the html to your Treo600 for later use.


    Don't forget after you are viewing the mosaic images, you can click on each image and go to a looping regional. Then while viewing the looping regional you can hit "MENU+W" for WIDESCREEN... "MENU+O" for OPTIMIZED.

    Interesting thread, I have the "W" set up as shortcut to the webpage URL of my exact city thru wunderground but without all the ads.

    Im sure this can be done many ways and it has been explained before but here it goes.

    In internet explorer go to www.wunderground.com and enter in your zipcode at the top.

    Next click on the "local radar" link under the radar image. Then click on the "animated" link under the radar image.

    You should now be looking at a webpage with the animated radar for your zipcode with a bunch of ads all around it.

    Now, right click on the image and click "add to favorites" and shorten the name to something that IE will accept and click ok.

    Now click on your favorites and click on the link you just created...presto you are now viewing your zip code's animated radar without all the ads. The URL listed in the address bar will summon up the latest radar every time it is reloaded.

    Now just copy out the URL and email it to your treo. Copy it out of your treo email and paste it into a shortcut button or where ever you want to put it.

    ---For all you Netscape users (the steps are easier)
    Go to wunderground and load up your animated radar and right click on the image and click "view image" and presto you start viewing the radar without any ads and the URL is in the address bar. And you don't have to save it to favorites.



    I hope this saves people from having to mess with all the Lon, Lat numbers as mentioned in the other thread.

    Boy, aren't you a genius, you came up with all that on your own!

    Did you realize that the Lon/Lat numbers were for pinpointing a location on the map? Did you even read the message? Or did you just think that you were so brilliant you had to immediately tell everyone about it? I think the later.

    Coryburton, take a look at some of your posts. Don't be such a bully. I say this with concern, not sarcasm or evil intent, but you really don't need to be so negative.
    Okay, now don't attack me for saying that.
    Just a little constructive criticism!

    The basic question was getting the weather on your Treo...plain and simple.
    I was just offering up the method I use. Some people were just wanting a very simple way to do it. Sorry if I had angered you in some way.... Its just the weather...sheesh

    I'm glad I missed the other threads. Somebody over there is leading everybody on a wild goose chase to enter lat/longs which are almost useless. I didn't get the name of the person. Maybe you know who it was:-)

    Serious now, I commend you for all the work you did in the other threads helping others with their radar links.

    I didn't see BJ2's wonderful html code to build a Mosaic of the entire USA and make a region loop at the click of a button.

    I am glad I started this thread.

    You guys are welcome... I spent a lot of time figuring out how to get those images into a mosaic and then be able to click to the loops without advertisments. It would probably be easy for someone in the know but for me it took a little while. The mosaic is one that I can say I created Thats rare on my computer!!!

    I also have one for aviation weather... "metars and tafs" if anyone is interested.
    It's another nice html page that has fields for the station identifiers, then you just press send for the hourly reports and the forecast.
    Let me know if anyone is interested.

    I am flying to Aruba tommorow and will be back Wednesday... and then Thu. and Fri. I have simulators. Probably won't be back on here for a few days!!!!

    I'd have no reason to attack you for that. Granted I sometimes (ok, usually) go a little over board, but god, if you read what these people are really saying you've got to wonder why we're looking for martians... when they're right here.

    that was very gracious of you to admit that.
    btw, did you mean martians or martinis?

    Is there a trick to get the graphic to be visible? I got the link to Blazer through my e-mail and the graphic appears as an outlined box with a smaller box in the upper left had corner with a red X in it. Thanks.

    Which graphic and which link are we taking about? The Radar Mosaic is 20 Regional radars. You would have 20 "X's"
