Love this widget, but it appears the weather.com maps are busted again after working for a while (they probably did something to interrupt the feed). NOAA maps appear to be working.

Arrgh! I've downloaded 2.6.4 several times, and it still doesn't work!

I retract my "arrgh!" After re-starting the computer, RIM started working. I'm happy!

Hooray! An update to my favorite Widget (the only reason, other than DeliveryStatus, that I still use Dashboard). Top-notch widget. Thanks and I wish you'd add a "donations accepted" button to your home page.

Though I know there's no real future development planned, I would ask that you consider making the lower-bar thing -- the part that pops up when you mouse by it to refresh, add/remove, and cycle through your maps -- visible all the time.

Greatest widget! I refer to the dashboard button on my keyboard as the "Radar Button". The regional 300 and 600 mile radars are working now.

My favorite widget after Delivery Status.

Note for those having trouble with 2.6.4: I had to reboot after installing it to get it to work.

Absolutely, by far, the best weather app anywhere. Due to the inability to work properly for the last several weeks I literally swore off checking weather updates b/c simply nothing is as good as this widget at quickly getting a glance of where we're heading as far as local weather is concerned.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Just to be honest, Meteorologist is a close 2nd for me. I do keep it running all the time for the sake of knowing the temperature, and perhaps textual data, but frankly Radar In Motion get's 98% of my attention for whenever I'm looking at inbound weather.

My favorite widget, but still no change from last version (regional maps don't work). The new download is still V 2.6.2. - not 2.6.4.

Also, even though I trashed the old version and it's pref file, The new installation shows my zip. Is there another hidden pref I can't find?

Worked just fine here, downloaded it, unzipped it, double clicked it and voila, back in business!

Okay, after installing this on another workstation here I think I found the problem you're expressing in your note. It appears as though it must be stashed as well in another location or somehow cached. I explored /Library/Widgets and ~/Library/Widgets to be sure that this was not present, and indeed it was gone as I manually `rm -fr`d the widget folders for Radar In Motion for each location. A curios oddity, however in the end I was able to simply press F12, click lower left + to add widgets, held down OPTION key to pull up the delete function (little x on the corner of the widgets that are deletable), deleted the widget and then reloaded it as per normal by double clicking the newly downloaded widget. Checked the version number (both via shell and the widget's own function at the bottom of it in the info backside) and voila, it did work that time.

It looks like the latest version of Meteorologist can retrieve Weather Channel maps again, so maybe there's still hope for RadarInMotion.

According to the developer, this widget may now be on life support (see http://dividedsoul.net/RadarInMotion/) due to recent changes to The Weather Channel's maps and an unspecified problem processing the ones from NOAA.

That's sad, as this widget was top notch in my book. :(

As of a few days ago, my map is blank. The widget is now just a big black box on my dashboard. Doesn't seem to be loading maps from either source anymore.

I did run the 10.5.3 update recently, though I'm not sure that caused it.

Weather.com changed their format. The 2.5.3 update should fix the problem.
