For those who have not yet discovered, the page has a zoom feature showing coordinates and location specific wind speed.

Tad, how often does the page refresh (ever hour?)

Do you have a galaxy nexus or are you running a custom ICS rom? If not then you can't until your phone is updated to Android 4.0

I actually had to turn it off because it was sucking down juice and hindering performance unless I killed all the widgets on my homescreens.

It loads painfully slow on my iPhone 4, would make great iPad app though.

UUUHHHH...Yeah. None of that stuff. I just hit upgrade when my dROID x tells me to. I def. don't need anymore of a battery drain, but Thanks for 'splainin'.

Actually, I just flashed a custom ICS rom last night... How did you do it? Thanks for the info, even if it doesn't work out it would be cool to try.

+1 If my EVO doesn't have good service, the battery is gone in no time. Little pecker should have a built in generator and a crank to get power back into it.


I'm boatless.
