Final Thoughts

The Active Weather has a lot of great detail, but you must be in cell service in order to download the information. I personally don’t use Active Weather, other than to test it.

I primarily use the Premium Weather under INREACH WEATHER, but each weather forecast will cost one dollar.

Check out the YouTube video below to learn more about the weather forecast options.
