SkyView Support for Rotax 912iS Announced - March 2012


March 26, 2012
Woodinville, WA – Dynon Avionics announces SkyView support for the new Rotax 912iS engine. Development of this capability has been underway for several months, with availability August 21, 2012
Support for the 912iS engine is via a new SV-EMS-221 module. The SV-EMS-221 receives many engine parameters directly from the 912iS engine computer through its new dual-channel CAN bus interface. Engine parameters available from the 912iS engine computer include RPM, manifold pressure, oil pressure, oil temperature, coolant temperature, EGT for all four cylinders, ECU voltage, and engine hours. All the other normal SkyView SV-engine functions are still available using the SV-EMS-221, such as fuel level, trim position, battery voltage, and contacts.
A 912iS-specific engine sensor kit that includes the engine wiring harness, a Kavlico fuel pressure sensor, and an amps shunt is also available. 
Founded in 2000, Dynon Avionics is the leading manufacturer of avionics for Experimental and Light Sport Aircraft. Continuing a tradition started with the introduction of their first Electronic Flight Information System “glass panel”, Dynon is committed to developing innovative and high-quality avionics integrating the newest technology at affordable prices for all pilots.

SkyView 3.3 Released

SkyView Software Version 3.3 is now available for download.

SkyView 3.3 adds audio alerts and messaging, fully integrated user waypoint functions, and much more and highly configurable GPS waypoint information to the Moving Map window.

The Audio Out feature includes voice annunciation of engine, navigation, and autopilot alerts, augmenting the visual alerting and messaging already incorporated in the display. 

The new User Waypoint function allows the pilot to create, manipulate, and import/export user defined waypoints. User Waypoints now appear as an icon of the pilot's choosing, and like other airports or navaids they can be used in flight plans, as direct-to navigation waypoints, or can be used visually on the map page to help navigate.

Substantially more waypoint GPS information can now be displayed on the GPS navigation map, including items such as Bearing to Waypoint, Distance to Go, Distance to Waypoint, ETA, Ground Speed, and GPS Altitude. All of this additional GPS information can be selected and viewed by the pilot in flight.
The new Map Navigation features require that the SkyView System have a SV-MAP-270 software license.

A new hardware device for SkyView is also being introduced, the SV-NET-HUB. With five network ports, it allows easier connection between multiple SkyView modules. Typically mounted in the avionics bay, one port can connect to a SkyView display leaving four ports available for connection to the ADAHRS, EMS module, and autopilot servos.

Customers can download SkyView Version 3.3 for free from the Dynon Website at
