Dynon SkyView Database Downloads
Aviation and Obstacle Databases
The following databases add US aviation and obstacle data to SkyView. To display this data on the SkyView map page and synthetic vision display, you must have an active GPS signal, a Navigation Mapping Software license (or unexpired 30 flight hour trial that comes with every SkyView system), and the below databases installed.
SkyView contains a 30 flight hour free trial of the SkyView Navigation Mapping Software. The Navigation Mapping Software must be purchased in order to continue to use it after the trial period ends. Only one Navigation Mapping Software license purchase is required per airplane ($500). Licenses can be purchased from Dynon Avionics or any authorized dealers.
Data for US customers is provided by Dynon Avionics for no fee. Worldwide customers can purchase data directly from Jeppesen or PocketFMS.

SkyView 4.0+ Notice: Jeppesen currently offers NavData that is formatted for use with SkyView 4.0 and later software. Data that is formatted for use with SkyView 4.0 supports several new airspace types that previously weren't depicted (predominantly those used outside the US). Additionally, some already-supported airspace types recieve stylistic updates in 4.0. Customers using Jeppesen NavData need to be running SkyView software version 4.0 or higher to see NavData depicted on the SkyView Moving Map. In other words, SkyView 4.0+ format data can not be displayed on SkyView 3.3 or earlier versions of SkyView software.
