Version 2.5 Software for SkyView System - July 2010
Dynon Releases Version 2.5 Software
for SkyView System
July 7th, 2010
Woodinville, WA, USA, July 07, 2010 – Dynon Avionics has released Version 2.5 Software for the SkyView System.
Included in Version 2.5 are the following major features:
A free preview trial of the upcoming Navigation Mapping Software
Runways and Obstacles in Synthetic Vision
Autopilot Pitch Axis Improvement
Free Trial Navigation Mapping Software: SkyView Version 2.5 adds a free trial preview version of the upcoming purchasable Navigation Mapping Software. It provides the ability to navigate “direct to” airports and aviation navaids. It also can display basic information about airports, runways, and navaids. Due to current aviation data availability, this feature is only available for US customers. The full version of the Navigation Mapping Software ($500, with a free trial period available) will be available for all customers later this year in version 3.0.
Runways and Obstacles in Synthetic Vision: Obstacles are shown at their actual heights, to make it apparent whether you will clear them on-screen. Runways are drawn to scale as well, so what you see out the window looks remarkably like the screen. Due to aviation data availability, this feature is currently only available for US customers. Non-US data will be available later in 2010.
Fuel Computer: Whenequipped with an SV-EMS-220 module and the optional fuel flow sensor, SkyView 2.5 can display Fuel Remaining, Fuel Used, Time Remaining, Fuel Efficiency (mpg), Fuel at Waypoint, and Fuel Range (distance to empty).
Lean Mode: Whether you prefer rich or lean of peak, SkyView’s new Lean Mode can show you how many degrees cooler your EGTs are off of their peak temperatures to help you run your engine optimally.
Timers: Whenequipped with an SV-EMS-220 module, the Engine page can display a variety of new timers in addition to the existing Tach and Hobbs timers. These include: Engine Run Timer, Engine Trip Timer, Total Flight Timer, and Flight Trip Timer.
Autopilot Pitch Axis Improvements: Dynon continues to upgrade its autopilot to provide the best possible ride in every aircraft. In SkyView version 2.5, the pitch axis control algorithm receives substantial updates that improve just about every aspect of its performance. It sports improved altitude hold, better control in turbulence, and improved level offs after climbs and descents.
