Run, iPad. Run.

The iPad seems like a natural tool for folks who like to chase funnel clouds. Coupled with a Sprint or Verizon Mi-Fi card you get great real time radar for ferreting out those pesky hook echos. Also, the map function serves as a faux GPS device (cell tower triangulation) to get you close to the action. The missing piece in this rig is a way to mount the iPad to your vehicle’s dash or console. The perfect storm-chasing outfit would be a Garmin Nuvi running on the left side of the windshield and Weatherbug’s radar feed running on the iPad mounted low on the right side of the dash.
