EMFB automatic (Android GPS) weather display is broken for the time being..

I get all the weather images from the public domain NOAA site
and they changed ALL their server names and directories as of Jan 1, 2012
so none of my links work anymore.

I'm working to rebuild everything but it might take awhile
.. wish me luck.

sorry for the service interruption.

regards,
Dennis

Ok, the automated weather functions are working again.

Please let me know if any of you are still having a problem.

Thanks,
Dennis

EMFB is back up and working

Will we need to do anything to get the update?
Good Question.. thank you.
The short answer is no.

..fyi..
If you don't have EMFB for the Android,
you can access many of the weather features on the FREE web site I provide... here:
FOGBOG Weather For Bikers
.. just book mark it for your smart phone (should work on iPhones too)

The long answer:
When I first started working on EMFB I anticipated having to make many updates and changes
and I did not want the end user to have to keep doing updates.
So the phone is really just a "client" for my server.
Most of the "work" is done on the server and the result is pushed back to the phone.

For this recent goberment change,
I made all the NOAA server changes on MY server working files
so the EMFB app really doesn't know the difference.

The only time you really have to do an EMFB update is for a major change in the app..
.. like if I add some new feature that previously had no "button" or voice command.

Thanks again... hoping to have new stuff to add before the coming riding season.
I'd like to be able to display radar hot spots for free (like Escort is now doing)..
.. open for any other ideas too.

Dennis
