SkyView 3.1.1 released

Dynon Avionics has released SkyView Software Version 3.1.1, and recommends that all customers upgrade as soon as possible.

This software release solves an issue where, in rare instances, a memory chip inside the SkyView becomes corrupted. This memory corruption prevents the SkyView display from fully powering up until it is repaired at Dynon’s facility. This failure has been traced to a timing issue within SkyView boot firmware and has been resolved with this 3.1.1 update. There are no other bug fixes or features in this firmware.

This is not considered to be a safety of flight issue, as the damage that is caused by this issue only occurs to SkyView displays as they are being powered on. No in-flight failures or degradations in performance have been experienced due to this issue.

We apologize to anyone that has encountered this issue and has had to send their unit to Dynon to be repaired. As this problem affected a very small percentage of our customers, it was extraordinarily difficult to diagnose.

SkyView version 3.1.1 can be downloaded from the SkyView downloads page.
