    OK, here's another one. I'd like to have the option to put a radar overlay on top of my Google maps.

    Maybe it's just because I used to be a meteorologist, though. Am I the only one who thinks would be nice?

    Weather radar, not so much. Speed trap radar, yes! (may not be legal in all areas)

    Even if the native Maps app doesn't have that layer, wouldn't it simply be a matter of using the browser to visit a (weather) website that's location-aware and has the Doppler radar overlay on the web page? May not follow you as you move but, still...

    Yeah, not sure how useful that would be for active driving, unless you were hoping to see and avoid a storm. That would be somewhat useful, but also likely distracting.

    Maybe if you're one of those crazy tornado chasers?

    Maybe Trapster can be ported to the infotainment center.
