    A NOAA app showing maps would be awesome too, or at least something along the lines of google/bbmaps. Even better would be streaming support, and a NOAA app to go along with it!

    Re: NOAA weather radio on bb?

    What I did for the WX radio was find the link(s) to the area broadcasts that I am interested in Emailed them to my phone ( too lazy to type all that mess) them bookmark them. Click on them as needed.
    The WX radio stream works fine on my 8320. example http://www.erh.noaa.gov/nwr/phi/PHLSAFNW5.mp3
    As for maps and text forecasts The NWS mobile site, at lest in my area, kind of stink they have sat. maps and radar. http://mobile.srh.noaa.gov/port_mp_ns.php?select=1&CityName=Millburn&site=OKX &State=NJ&warnzone=NJZ005
    What I use most is weatherundergroud good maps and a animated radar that is full screen an over all easy to read format.

    All the links are from my bookmarks on my 8320 all work fine for me and are for the NYC Metro Area.

    We spend about 1/4 - 1/3 of our life directly on the coast (literally a few feet above the water). I do have a traditional NOAA wx radio set up... but I would like redundancy. The major thing we worry about is a tsunami.

    You know this is good too... I should have posted this link too in my last post.
    If you have push email for your BB set your self up here. http://www.emergencyemail.org/
    I have been using it on my desktop for years, it is a great free service.

    This looks like a great service, but I do not think it would help in my case. I get so much corporate email that I would probably not see an emergency email in "real time". For me... having a weather alert radio is the best solution. However... If I could get a true emergency signal on my BB... that would be great too.

    See I have little or no email activity .. personal only and only a few friends have the Email tha is pushed to the BB , so for me away from my WX radio it is great.
    I too would love the EBS built into my BB especially with the S.A.M.E. encoding as in the WX radios

    Actually tsunami is my fav Japanese food, it's very tasty!

    Ok...Ok...so much for my humor eh?

    I think having access to NOAA on my BB would be great, even though I too have a dedicated weather radio. The more functionality I can sqeeze out of my BB the better. Especially since I always carry it.

    Agree with tigers123sw about wunderground - I've used it in the US and in Europe. The US has live radar and the European version gives accurate forcasts.
