  1. The quiz was very informative regarding ADS-B. I understand Garmin has come out with a new model called GTX-345 that handles both in & out. I currently use XM weather in my Cirrus. Do you know when ADS-B weather will have cloud tops & lightning info? If you have both will they conflect with each other on your MFD or wherever you display it?

  2. Would an ipad without cellular capabilities ( no internal gps) get better battery life when used with a stratus 2s and foreflight?
