Default Best site for METARS, TAFs, Nexrad on a Treo

I just spent the weekend Web surfing for weather on my Treo.
Suprisingly, even ADDS works pretty well.

But my question - what's the best free site for picking up METARS, TAFs
and perhaps even Nexrad images on a Web enabled phone? Limited
bandwidth and limited screen size.

Can you use the Treo at 5000 ft AGL? Just curious. I tried my Sprint
cell last week and couldn't pick up a signal at 5500.

No, you definitely can't with any consistency. I've found that I can
get an text msg off and receive one at less than 5,000. But nothing is
consistent or reliable.

I'm just trying to figure out my best options for ground briefings.
