  1. This Q&A could use some work.

    Q1. All of choices individually are ONE way to extend battery life. Maybe dimming is the best choice but not the only choice.

    Q7. Assuming one already has the iPad and EFB, ADSB IN incurs an incremental cost for the receiver, possibly hundreds of dollars. A call to FSS and tuning ASOS, AWOS and ATIS, not to mention monitoring CTAFs and ATC along the way are zero incremental cost assuming you have radios. ADSB May be the easiest and most efficient way time-wise but probably not the most cost effective method which is what the question asked for.

    Sorry, I rate this quiz “Landed wheels up.”

    • The question was, “What is the most cost-effective way to receive in-flight weather updates on your iPad?” not “What is the most cost-effective way to receive in-flight weather updates”.

      ASOS, AWOS etc. aren’t going to give you weather on your iPad.

      Also, your comment on Q1 is actually a comment on Q2.
