Default Weather Radar

Please Login to Remove!

I need to find a free site that I can view on a 7100g that provides up to date weather and radar. I have searched this site, and found a few, but the ones that offer radar reduce the image size so much that it is barely visible (about 1/3 of the 7100g screen size.

Does anyone know of a site that offers radar where it will dsiplay on most, if not all, of the 7100g screen?

Thanks.

i hate to answer my own post... but if your in Atlanta, go to Georgia-navigator.com it has a web site for PDA's and cell phones (I book marked the PDA version) and it is free and awesome. You can access all the traffic cams in Georgia, as well as the electronic boards and trip times, etc. It also has traffic and construction reports.

to add, the f'n fencing they're putting in on the bridges is absolutely ridiculous! they had the south side of the connector on northbound 85 stopped to 1 lane for about 2 days straight to fix the fencing. let the f'n jumpers jump if they want... ugh! and lets not even mention what happened with the guy on the crane downtown (or is that midtown?)... so many things piss me off about atlanta roadways!



...i'm a horrible driver, just in case anyone is wondering...

I use the "Weather Underground" at http://mobile.wunderground.com for my local weather. In addition to the local weather stats they have a link for animated and static weather radar. Very nice. Haven't found anything better yet.

Man, I got a ticket going 63 in a 55. They reduced it to defective headlight when I got to court. I need to live there but sounds like everyone will be blowing their horn and flipping me off just going 63.
