Default I owned a Mooney 231 with a strikefinder

for several years. Worked great in my experience. Either picking your way around weather or flying along in the soup with embedded thunderstorms, I think it is the best thing going for real time wx in our planes.

Ground based relay type systems have a variable time lag that could be a problem in some cases. Of course the overall picture provided by Garmin et al is hard to beat for longer range planning.

As I recall the dots stayed on the screen, but all you had to do was push a button to get a fresh picture. Be sure to get the system with heading input.

If you're strictly VFR it might be overkill,
