    BB Today and BB Weather Question

    Advertisement



    How do I find my location to plug into the weather module on BB Today and BB Weather? Is there a website listing? The Location finder on the device returns a message: cannot find location ID

    Thanks!

    Try that addy for weather. It has streaming radar. What you do is once you get your zipcode enterd, bookmark the site. Then when you pull it up, it will automaticaly pull up your radar. It also has a 7 day forecast that I find pretty helpful. Sorry I couldn't answer your question, but hopefully this addy will help.

    John's site is great, I really like the radar, but to find your location for BB Today and Weather you can just put your zip code in the location id.

    If you want to actually get the location id, go to weather.yahoo.com and type in your city or zip, and then in the url of that site you will see a series of letters and numbers, which is the location id.

    For example... weather.yahoo.com/forecast/USFL0481.html

    I generally just use the radar. If you're like me, I recommend just bookmarking the animated radar image. You can also edit the URL to adjust the zoom level (radius in the URL), and adjust the resolution of the image to exactly fit your screen.

    Totaly rocks , heck I deleted bbweather and will use this instead , I have 8700c with cingular/A.T. & T. so I have weather channel under my links in media net. So now have quicklink with this new one to see animated weather. Which in Louisiana changes every 5 minutes. Quick way to set yours to home town.

    Go for it , thanks for the site , now back to finding a voice recorder.

    Sorry - I think animated radar on accuweather.com is much clearer. check it out.
