Some of the Garmin models like the 376 with XM antenna will get Nexrad. The subscription is expensive at about $30 a month.

The alternatives are iPhone, Treo and the like to get it off the web.

Does the zumo 550 do this? I prefer a smart phone for frequent weather updates if necessary.

I get live in motion radar on my blackberry through weatherunderground.com no extra charge. Just type in the zip code you want it for.

The Zumo can't get radar overlays, which is the major shortcoming for me.
