Back a few weeks ago our very own George wrote up a nice review for the freeware GPS Weather Radar, which has become quite popular as of late.
Well, it just got bumped recently to v2.1.01 from the previously reviewed v1.5.
The biggest change is now in the maps, which look much nicer especially with the transparency effect, a new source and more location support ( USA, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia, Brazil, Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean).
It takes a bit to load and no doubt .NET 3.5 is not the fastest, but hey...it works and works well.

I tried the new version, but ultimately went back to v1.5 because you could no longer choose visible or IR satellite maps, only RADAR. So if that's important to you, keep your old version.
I also reverted back to the older version because of the loss of map types. It is puzzling that such a step backward was taken an also that WMExperts failed to mention this in their review.
This has been TERRIBLE since they switched over the map source. The old style was much better and loaded faster. The new one takes FOREVER. At least give us the option to switch!
