Though the background map is gray by default, you can change it by tapping on the Maps icon and selecting the background you prefer. You will also see the option to upgrade to Aviation charts! These are VFR, IFR, and IFR High-Altitude. Note the aviation charts are strictly for informational purposes, not for in-flight navigation.



Layers



You'll find most of MyRadar's configurable options in here, everything from Classic/Hi-Def Radar and the forecast, to Hurricane Tracker and wildfires. Each menu with a white mixer icon has other menus you can access to customize your experience further.


 


Videos



Tapping this icon will lead you to videos of forecasts and news from our meteorology desk, as well as interviews and instructional tips on how to use the app.
