Dynon Avionics has introduced Version 3.2 firmware for the SkyView Integrated Glass Panel system, a free software upgrade for all existing SkyView owners that ships standard in all new systems.
Version 3.2 improves SkyView GPS mapping, enabling pilots to pan around the map to see detailed airport, airspace, and terrain information for areas away from the current aircraft location, according to company officials. Airports, VORs, NDBs, Fixes, and arbitrary lat-lon locations can be added as direct-to and flight plan waypoints.
A common customer request has been for larger fonts. The new SkyView firmware offers larger and improved fonts on both the 7-inch and 10-inch displays, along with other visual Primary Flight Display and Map graphical improvements.
SkyView 3.2 also adds serial NMEA data out, which can be connected to newer 406MHz Emergency Locator Transmitters to provide ELT GPS location.
Version 3.2 also provides support for the Vertical Power VP-X Electronic Circuit Breaker system, allowing pilots to monitor their entire electrical system on the SkyView display. The SkyView VP-X support license is now available for $275.
Customers can download SkyView Version 3.2 for free from the Dynon Website
