True. Unfortunately ADS- B wx lags by several minutes, so it won't help you all that much with T-storm avoidance.
Oh, I dont need it for thunderstorm avoidance, I already avoid them.
I guess I should have also clarified that I mainly use it for METARS and not a radar image as I'm usually on the ground when there's a even a hint of a shower or storm as I am a fair weather flyer.
For the radar, I like that it gives me a good look ahead many, many miles away long before I get there. I have seen many FAA videos on in flight weather and how they lag and certainly dont use in flight weather as my go/no go decision maker while in the air. We can get passing showers at any given moment so it's just nice to know roughly where they.
