Several people keep emailing me asking about adding a feature to the widget where maps can be animated for longer periods of time. This feature already exists in the widget. It is the “Save Maps” feature in the “Updating” tab of the preferences. In the help part of the widget, it says “Save Maps: Store maps locally on the hard drive for the amount of time specified.” Maybe I need to edit the description so it is more clear as to what it does. You can specify the amount of time the maps are stored (and animated) using this feature.
