SkyView 4.0

Dynon Avionics is introducing Version 4.0 firmware for the SkyView Integrated Glass Panel system.

Version 4.0 is a free upgrade for all existing SkyView owners and will ship standard in all new systems. The new product features in 4.0 will be on display at Oshkosh AirVenture, Building D, Booths 4053-54-55, and will be shipping at the beginning of August.

4.0 Features improvements to the SkyView navigation mapping, with free basemap data now available worldwide. These include towns, cities, roads, rivers, and railroads.

Airspace depiction is also greatly improved, with graphics that match the style and color of sectional type charts. With the addition of this new data, SkyView now smartly de-clutters objects and names to create a highly readable and detailed navigation map.

Designed from the start to be the leading IFR platform, Version 4.0 also enhances SkyView system redundancy with annunciation of network faults and ADAHRS inconsistencies.  All SkyView network cables have two sets of redundant data lines.

The SkyView autopilot received several ongoing improvements, and Version 4.0 includes support for the Rotax 912 iS, a new engine popular with LSA manufacturers. The new SV-EMS-221 Module, required for this feature, will also start shipping at the beginning of August.
