    Do you mean like a built-in weather radio? One of my CB's has that feature, but it's 100% useless in the places that I hunt, fish, and camp. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif None of the transmitters reach into the mountains. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    NO, I mean like satilite info on the screen. I'm looking at the Alpine indash monitors for my DD, the apline unit has a DVD box and satilite radio. I'm waiting for them to have a satilite (like tv) weather station.

    I was curious if any of the handheld GPS systems (that show land areas and roads), if any of those have like a weather overlay to show the weather?

    Something like that could probably be done with a marine GPS chartplotter, but you're talking multi-thousand $$$ for the equipment. Plus, since it's marine stuff, there wouldn't be many charts available for overland use. Just coastal areas.

    Last time I was on weather.com and accuweather.com, they both offer satellite weather on your cell phone. It's gotta be one that is Internet-capable, and it's gotta be with the right carrier, but it is out there.
