Weather program for Map Monkey
Hey all, i just spent the past week trying to come up w/ something that would give me weather information as i drive. I use frodoplayer, and there is no weather plugin for it. I wrote a simple program that polls MapMonkey for the current location and then goes to the Weather Channel website and downloads all of the data for that location. Obviously you will need MapMonkey and an internet connection in your car. I wanted to post a message about it to see if anyone is interested in it. i started making it just for myself, but realized there are probably others that could use it. i posted a screen shot. Obviously i will make it "pretty" and "touchscreen friendly", but it shows the current weather conditions. It polls yoru location every 5 seconds. If your location changes it downloads the weather for the new location, and if you are in a location for longer than 5 minutes, it updates the weather. Here's a screen shot of what i have so far.
