Default Dynon Software 16.01 is out

So I saw that Dynon Software 16.0.1 is out. Here's the change log: https://www.dynonavionics.com/skyview-hdx-software-updates.php

Am I correct to assume I should hold tight until Van's puts out an update to preserve splash screen, settings, etc.?

Thanks!

Replying to my own thread. I think we just update since Van's just provides an RV-12 Settings file. I'll hold tight until confirmed though. Nothing super urgent needed in the update.

Van's cannot (won't) support an upgrade until after we test it. We were not aware of the release until you were for this version, and we are currently testing the software. It will take a couple of weeks for us to complete the process.

Van's recommends NOT upgrading at this time.

Thanks Greg! You saved me a potential headache. I'll hold tight as the current version works just great

I would consider this a major software release from Dynon. I'm OK with the timing as this is wintertime and some of us have extra time to burn. I counted a Total of 42 changes in the release notes for the version - 16.0.1 Skyview HDX Software. Here is the count, check my math please.

2 - New
10 - Added
14 - Improved
16 Fixed

I would recommed to wait for the Vans test team to verify these changes before proceeding with the software update. Thanks Vans, we truly appreciate it. We will wait to hear back from Greg on the "all clear" message.

Any new news on this update, Scott? Hold off, or is it OK to load up?

I worked in IT for 30+ years. If you don't have a pressing need, don't rush to be at the forefront of a new release.
