    I am a Droid user waiting on 2.1 to be released and have a question about Annimated Radar. Do the Annimated radar sites now work with the 2.1 release? None of the ones I used with my BB will work on the Droid. I used them all the time and was hoping the update would fix this. Thanks for any help!

    What are the sites you use? I will test them on my Nexus One.

    When I go to the site I can see the radar image but I don't see it moving am I correct in assuming it updates every 10 minutes.

    Yes it does. Did you click on animated radar? It should animate then every 10 minutes update the progress again.

    Hmmm weather.com works on mine too. Never tried that one. Thanks!
    Still wish the other worked. It works on my wife and daughters enV phones. Weird it don't work on Android?? So Android must not support Animated GIF's I guess. :(

    Guess weather.com is the only one that works. Accuweather.com doesn't either?? Wonder what the difference is?

    The Android browser does not support animated gifs. That is why I.wund.com does not animate along with many other radar sites.

    Yeah I actually have wb elite just for the maps. It's just weird that Android wouldn't support animated GIF's when a regular "dumb phone" does. :thinking:
