    I've been doing a fair bit of research looking for an app that I can use while on the road.

    What I want it pretty simple - I want the app to have a feature that will update the radar image based on my gps location automagically.

    I am leaning towards Weatherbug Pro. (Pro simply so I can go with no ads.)

    Does anyone have other suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Another option, is to use Beautiful Widgets as the weather information is configurable to be pulled by GPS. But when you click on the actual weather Icon from your Homescreen it will take you to a 5 day forecast and you can also set this view to launch another application. for this i use an app called Radar Now. So no matter where i am i can very easily get current radar info if needed.

    Radar now is good and the Weather Channel's isn't bad either... you can set it to follow you pretty easy. I have their widget on one of my screens. Tap it, tap the map and presto radar for wherever I am. And in the top corner the temperature at home.

    I like the Weather Channel widget (a lot). Keeps saved locations and gets weather from current (on the road) location at any time. Works great for me on the road and at home.

    Another vote for WeatherBug Elite. Best weather app I've ever used.
