The bar at the top of the map allows the user a large degree of customisation over what is displayed on the map, such as weather warnings, as well as buoys and the weather at their location.

History

On August 24 2009 iMapWeather was adopted as the weather forecaster by the third largest radio broadcaster in the US. [1]
