    Ok.
    So i tried the animated radar websites that work on my treo.
    I tried the animated radars that work on the iPhone (in apple store).
    They are beautiful.
    However, nothing I can find for florida (central florida preferably) works.
    The radar sits, and does nothing, its just a snapshot image.

    Anyone get any Florida (heck even other states at this point) animated radar website working on the PRE?

    I entered this in the Bug list already it is #32 ... it is not just radar...any animated Gifs only display the first frame.

    No joy. All my local weather sites don't work either...

    Apparently it works on the Instinct too, but I didn't even know about it while I had it. Now that I know of the Websites that have animated radars I'm a bit disappointed the Pre's browser doesn't allow it.

    I am still waiting for a truly kick *** weather app!

    Weather.com/iphone works for me. I have to click on maps, then radar, then loop to get animation but it works. The map isn't zoomable which is the downside.

    I wonder if the NHC's java radar loops would work as this phone supports java.

    Don't have my pre yet, but if anyone wants to test it, let me know.

    I know that houston chronicle has a good animated map loop if you're in the houston area, too.

    Try the enhanced radar on accuweather. It works for me. The images are jpegs, not gifs.

    The iPhone actually doubles as a lightning rod and measures the effective static factor in the air to determine the vortex of the waterspout. And, it also acts as a divining rod should you need to find water for a well.

    Oh, and it'll feed your cat while you're away.

    There's an app for that.

    I've tried lots of sites... NWS, local stations, weather underground, etc... so far the only one that animates is weather.com/iphone
