Does ASE update weather in real time while enroute?

Forgive me but I do not see this answered anywhere specifically nor directly.I have both REX2 and ASE.If I run just REX2 it updates the weather as I fly. So even if I fly with no preselected flight plan REX2 will update the weather for me as I fly.Does ASE do so or does it take my flight plan and pre-assign the weather along the netire route and then not further update it in real time? Do I therefore always have to preload a flight plan with ASE?Cheers.

ASE updates weather as you fly, and you can adjust the frequency of those updates from once every 5 minutes to once every 30 minutes. You do not have to file a flight plan within ASE.The benefit of filing a flight plan within ASE is a detailed briefing report complete with METARS at origin and destination, winds aloft predictions by waypoint, and AIRMETS and SIGMETS.
