Version 1.5 Software
for SkyView System
March 29th, 2010
Woodinville, WA, USA, March 29, 2010 – Dynon Avionics has released Version 1.5 Software for the SkyView System.
Included in Version 1.5 are:
- Free trial of US Navigation Data
- Display Synchronization
- GPS Assist
- Textual GPS data on map
- Other System improvements
Navigation Data Details: A basic moving map displaying aviation data within the United States. This data is overlaid on the look down terrain, and shows airspaces, airports, airport identifiers, and VOR's in relation to the current location of the aircraft. Because this release does not include navigation functions, it is being offered for free. A later, $500 version will include GPS navigation functions. The data in this release is sourced from the FAA. Non-US data will be sourced from Jeppesen as soon as possible.
Display Synchronization: The displays will now synchronize data, calibrations, and settings throughout the entire network. This includes altimeter settings, bugs, screen dimming, message acknowledgement, and other real-time adjustments. Also, all system settings and user-configurable data are transparently synchronized across all displays.
GPS Assist: GPS ground speed is automatically substituted for airspeed when the System detects that the airspeed indication has failed (usually because of an iced, blocked, or otherwise disconnected pitot). When this happens, the PFD annunciates that its attitude indication is in a “GPS Assist” mode. The EFIS display also shows GPS ground speed next to the failed airspeed indication to help the pilot maintain situational awareness. Most importantly, when in GPS Assist mode, the attitude provided by Dynon PFD continues to be accurate.
Textual GPS Data: GPS ground speed and GPS altitude are now shown on the moving map.
Other System Improvements: See the SkyView 1.5 Release Notes for the complete list of System improvements.
