There is a survey about datalink weather that can be accessed via the AOPA web site. Given all the talk about Avidyne/Garmin data links, as well as others to come, it is worthwhile to participate in. It makes you think about many options in data received, frequency of data, price of hardware and price of ongoing service. Thought you might be interested. Sorry I am not computer literate enough to provide the links.
NASA web site for CHARACTERISTICS OF NEW COCKPIT WEATHER INFORMATION SYSTEMS
From AOPA news item:
NASA research team seeks GA pilots’ help
Aug. 6 ? Okay, pilots, here’s your chance to tell one part of government what you think about in-cockpit datalink services. A team of researchers from two Virginia universities is working with NASA to determine what pilots want and need in an in-flight datalink environment.
Sadly the survey is infuriating in its structure - answering every question twice, once forward and once backwards…bizarre. Interesting topic, though.

Agree 100%. Plan on 20+ minutes to complete the dang thing.
