    So I am driving along Highway 237 in the Bay Area this morning. Nice sunny day with not a cloud in the sky. But my nav display shows clouds in the sky when it switched over to the graphic for my exit. What gives? :confused:

    So the question is what determines the weather conditions displayed in the navigation graphic? Is it really integrating the weather conditions into the visuals? I doubt it, but it would be a neat feature.

    Anyone else noticed this?

    Holy cow, please stop taking pictures of your display while doing 60 AND exiting the freeway!

    I don't think he's actually exiting here, but about to exit (in 0.3 miles) but your point about the picture taking is a good one.

    Safer to take a screenshot, which I accidentally do at least one a week somehow. If only you could access them...

    Back to the topic, I've never really noticed but I'll check it out, at least at night...

    I think it just always displays the clouds - see similar comparison between display vs. actual weather. (Yes, Seattle has clear days - this wasn't Photoshopped...)
