Default Animated Weather Radar?

Please Login to Remove!

Please navigate on to http://66.28.250.180/data/640x480/radarc5_anim.gif from your Blackberry.

Is the radar animated on your Blackerry? It used to be on mine, but is not any longer. It is on my desktop.

If your Blackberry shows the animated version, please be so kind as to post your Internet "Browser Configuration" and "General Properties" settings on your device.

I would really like for this to work again for me.

I have an 8800c version 4.2.1.90 (138) / platform 2.3.0.72

Thank you!

Check your settings. There's an option if you want it to animate or not. And how much.

In my 8100, it's in the General Properties and it is the option that says, Repeat Animation.

Try that.

How do you adjust the settings to get radar for where you live?

Go to Weather Underground (Mobile) and enter your location. Then scroll down to the radar image. You can view the animated radar or just a snapshot.

Or in the link listed above, change the c5 to a1, a2, a3, a4, a5, b1, b2, b3, b4, b5, c1, c2, c3, or c4.

Good luck.

If you choose the Zoom Into Animated Radar link and then grab the URL for the radar image itself you can bookmark just the image and then edit the URL to adjust the size of the image to exactly fit your screen. Just look at the URL once you grab it and the settings should be pretty self evident. You can also tweak the zoom level.
