When you are logged in the radar / sat shows your location....
Used to be a little Red dot, so you could see the radar, (when the radar was working mind you) now there is this huge Blue circle that blocks out the radar....who thought of this stupid thing..???

agreed; it's very annoying.

If you use the Obs Field option, you want to check the obs for your location ; you can see everyone else's EXCEPT yours.

I tried using the Obs Rose instead - but you can't read that if there is any kind of weather around, too small & too feint.

They need to make the Blue circle smaller & transparent so we can see the text beneath it.

Yep, it's really annoying.
I always move it well out into the ocean so it's out of the way. If you keep the radar window constantly open, that's where it will stay. However if you close that radar window, it will move back to your location again the next time you open up the radar again. It will also move back to your location if you manually refresh the page...

There should be a display option among the others on the radar that lets you either show or hide your location.

Agreed to all, it used to be a little red dot, and that was fine, please can you change it back weatherzone?
