SkyView Software 10 Released!

The first major portion of The New SkyView has been released: SkyView 10 software is now available for download for all SkyView systems.

SkyView 10 includes some of our most exciting new features yet, like six-pack flight instrument mode, VFR and IFR enroute charting, twin and large engine support, and more. SkyView 10 also has support for SkyView Touch and the Knob and Autopilot Control Panels, both of which are expected to be available in April.

As always, updated documentation is available, with red-line versions that capture the changes since 7.1. There’s a full set of release notes that details every feature, improvement, and bug fix.

If you’re a US customer and have a Seattle Avionics ChartData subscription, SkyView 10 adds the ability to overlay Sectionals and IFR Lo/High en-route charts on the map. Your subscription already includes it - another perk of choosing Dynon - but you’ll need an updated data manager that will download them. (The datamanager usually auto-updates, but the release that supports Dynon charts hasn’t made it there yet.)

Finally, if you have our SV-XPNDR-261 or SV-XPNDR-262, there is a new service bulletin that may apply to you. Although it mostly applies to aircraft that have both our transponder AND an IFR GPS, please read it thoroughly to ensure that your ADS-B Out capability is in compliance with requirements.
