Nexrad weather radar is cool as hell!
I just started using the nextrad weather radar on my garmin 478 and just love it! Upstate NY is pretty wet this summer season and the 478 with the weather feature is getting a real workout! My mom is always obsessed with what the weatherman is gonna say, but now it's instant info for her. I can see basically what's gonna happen for the next few hours, then I just have to forcast (guess) what the green patches are gonna do as they approach for later on in the day. I'm keeping the 478 in the house since I'm not traveling right now and it's on 24/7 . It's nice to look at right before we're wanting to go out in the boat .... man this technology is great! someday everyone will have this at their fingertips and the weatherman will be history! I got the full package to start out with to figure out which features I need or not, then I'll step down to the 30 bucks a month plan ....... Nexrad, man that's cool!
