SkyView 6.0 Released and COM and Intercom Shipping - June 2013
COM RADIO AND INTERCOM SHIPPING AND SKYVIEW 6.0 RELEASED
Woodinville, WA, June 3rd, 2013 - Dynon has released a winning trifecta of new products: a COM radio, Intercom, and SkyView firmware 6.0 with new autopilot capabilities. Products are shipping now, in time for installation before the summer flying season.
A REVOLUTIONARY INTEGRATED SKYVIEW COM RADIO
The SV-COM-C25 COM radio is designed for integration with the SkyView glass panel, and changes the way pilots use their radio. Dedicated buttons for ATIS, ATC, TWR, and GND tune frequencies by airport and station type using data from the SkyView database. If frequencies are dialed in by hand then SkyView will identify the airport and station type to ensure the pilot is talking to the right radio station.
Other radio features include dual watch, fully backlit and auto-dimming controls, one-touch flip-flop with remote trigger ability, transmit and receive indicators (with active/standby receive differentiation), and a stuck mic indicator with transmit time-out. The SV-COM-C25 is shipping now with a MSRP of $1,295. It comes in horizontal and vertical versions; 25 kHz spacing only; Not TSO’d.
SV-INTERCOM-2S: AUDIO PANEL FEATURES AT HALF THE PRICE
The SV-INTERCOM-2S two-place intercom solves the problem of having to choose between an under-featured intercom and an expensive audio panel. The SV-INTERCOM-2S has everything pilots need to connect EFIS systems, stereo music, and other audio devices in their panels. Audio inputs include two that are muted (one stereo for music), four non-muting inputs (one stereo for capable EFIS systems such as SkyView; the rest mono for radios and other avionics), dual stereo headset connections, and dual radio outputs. The SV-INTERCOM-2S can be installed in ANY experimental or light sport aircraft, even those without other Dynon products.
The SV-INTERCOM-2S is now availablean MSRP of $295. Horizontal and Vertical faceplates are included, as are headset jacks. Not TSO’d.
SKYVIEW FIRMWARE VERSION 6.0 NOW AVAILABLE
SkyView 6.0 software release delivers a highly capable autopilot for expert pilots who fly IFR, and an alternate set of simplified controls for those who prefer VFR simplicity. For the IFR pilot, SkyView's new autopilot features include VNAV, IAS Hold, mode sequencing, fully-coupled approaches, a Flight Director with single cue (v-bars) or dual cue (crosshairs) presentation, and more. These new features complete the system by building on existing modes such as heading hold, GPS ground track hold, altitude hold, and control wheel steering.
VFR pilots can cruise in comfort – without a steep learning curve – thanks to a new alternative set of simplified autopilot controls built into SkyView. This new feature streamlines the autopilot modes to those pilots use most: HSI+ALT for following navigation sources such as GPS flight plans, and TRK+ALT for flying in the direction and at the altitude you choose. Each of these modes activates with a single button press. 6.0 also adds a new LEVEL button that can be activated from the either SkyView’s menu or an external button. SkyView 6.0 is available now as a FREE upgrade for existing SkyView customers.
