Has anyone else has problems with the Weather Dobbler Radar? about 70% of the time it states, "No Information Received." See attached photo.

There is Doppler Weather? I was having issues with the weather widget giving me weather from over 100 miles away. May have to check this one out.

if you go to the home screen, simply slide your finger on the screen to the left. Under HD Radio, (why that is, is a mystery to me) You'll see, Dobbler radar, but it only shows an area 40 miles south of me and continues southward. Why that is who knows. Hardly works anyway. The screen does provide local gas prices, traffic info which do work and is helpful.

Thanks. I'll try tomorrow. Considering the picture below is rather amusing.

UPDATE: I figured out the Dobbler Radar map issues. Looking at the weather screen it posts the location it's getting the data from. There's not too many source points, meaning that when I turn the car on, it's weather source is coming from Reading, PA, 25 miles due north. Weird thing is, when I travel east over 8 to 9 miles, the source city changes, to Wilmington, DE. So when it changes, I brought up the Dobbler map and now it's diplaying too far east, under the Wilmington, DE. Far from accurate. Maybe KIA will update these minor issues when the system gets updated.

This is not a Kia problem. The sources of the information control the map, not Kia. The maps you get are the ones being sent. What posses you to think they can change what is being sent out?

Kia doesn't control what sources are available nor what those sources produce. The car just picks between what is available at the time and reads what is sent. Complain to the source(s).

Well "what Possess me to think they can change what is being sent out" is that I had 2 previous cars that had dobbler radar, with NO problems. I had total control of the map, zooming in and out and panning. Since this is a KIA automobile under a KIA name, this "POSSES" me to think they can change it. Rude.

So your claim is Kia editing the data being sent over the HD Radio network to your disadvantage? You claim is Kia is getting unique data that your other cars were not getting? Your claim is the automaker controls what is being broadcast?
