"Enjoying 2.0 and the ability to predict future VFR conditions a couple of days out anywhere,  very useful, and so far, appears to be pretty accurate.  Its a "keeper".  But technological change and equipment in the market…"

Hi Mack,

here are the answers:

1) go to planning mode and slide out the right map overlay widget; look to the top right corner and turn on METAR - graphical Metars are depicted

2) Correct, so far we simply have METARs and TAFs available; no Winds aloft yet

3) Wx radar and TFRs are currently not available as a graphical overlay

We are working on improving our app every day. So please tell us what is needed as next features and functions.
