PLEASE READ THIS BULLETIN IN ITS ENTIRETY BEFORE CONTACTING DYNON AVIONICS
Certain Experimental SkyView HDX displays - manufactured during or after March 2022 - can exhibit adverse behaviors when equipped with Wi-Fi Adapters (Dynon p/n 102405-000). These behaviors include display restarts or display freezing, which can result in the partial or complete loss of flight instrumentation without warning.
This bulletin only affects the following experimental SkyView HDX displays. Dynon Certified displays are not affected.
The following equipment is not affected by this bulletin:
Remove USB Wi-Fi Adapters from affected displays before further flight.
Since this behavior only occurs with Wi-Fi Adapters connected, removing them will prevent the described adverse behaviors from occurring.
Update software per below as soon as practical.
SkyView System Software Version 16.3.2 and later contains a fix for this problem.
Download and install SkyView System Software version 16.3.2 or later to each affected display.
Once a display is running SkyView 16.3.2 or later, Wi-Fi Adapters can be connected and used.
This technical service bulletin is in effect indefinitely.
You are solely responsible for ensuring that your aircraft is airworthy. In the case of S-LSA aircraft, owners may need special authorization to service the aircraft if such operations are not permitted in the maintenance manual. Please refer to your aircraft maintenance manual or contact your aircraft manufacturer concerning changing the software on your SkyView system.
