The report cited in #2 seems to be true from my personal experience although that is allways anecdotal evidence only. However you have to keep in mind that it is also a report used to promote the first member of Honeywells Intuvue 3D weather-radar family (RDR-4000) which basicly promises to do nearly everything on its own and automaticly. Judging from the product webpage it can indeed provide quite a lot of help to the average pilot, especially if that pilot received the cited bad training.

Would love to hear from someone that uses it how it works in the real world, apparently it is in use on the A380 and will be in use on A350 and Gulfstram 650.
