To all Electronic Flight Information Systems, Model EFIS-D10A with operating program versions 02.03 and earlier. You can check your EFIS-D10A software version by bringing up the menu and selecting: MORE, SETUP, MORE, VRSION.
Please note that this service bulletin does not apply to Dynon's Model EFIS-D10.
Download new operating software V 02.04 (or later) into the EFIS-D10A before next flight.
The software, Dynon Support PC Program and loading instructions are all freely available at Software Support. For best results, use the current Dynon Support PC program V 2.0.13.
Dynon has uncovered a potentially unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop with software versions prior to V 02.04, where stored user parameters and certain internal data stored by algorithms are not maintained after 250 changes have occurred. Once this condition occurs, it is permanent, can potentially affect the overall performance of the instrument and can only be remedied by downloading V 02.04 or later.
The condition is easily detected by observing instrument operation while adjusting or changing a user-selectable parameter. For example, changing the BARO will show both the barometer and altimeter changing. However, when the BACK button is pressed, the EFIS will return to the previous value and not store the newly entered value.
Fixed: Problem resulting in erroneous serial altitude encoder output over 20,000 feet
Added: Reporting "Attitude Indeterminate" to warn when started in flight
Improved: Performance of algorithm when started in flight
Improved: Attitude performance, including minimizing susceptibility to vibration
Improved: G-Meter max and min are saved every time they change
