Downloaded maps are cached - up to 6 maps can be cached, so examining a 3-4 step weather process is fast and requires no internet connection. If you are concerned about the app's memory usage, use Menu->Clear cache to release the downloaded images (only a maximum of 6 files will be cached into memory).
To change model or model source, simply go back and change your choice!
Each image is around 50-200 kbytes, so when on 3G, use with caution. A whole GFS forecast (00 Z - 384 Z) for one parameter requires about 6.5 MB!
