Default Dynon SkyView 4.0 Ships!

To all our SkyView customers, SkyView software version 4.0 is now available.

4.0 Adds:

Basemap: Roads, rivers, cities, railroads, etc. This is a free database, available worldwide in high resolution.

Greatly enhanced mapping visuals: Graphics that match the style and color of sectional type charts. This includes shaded, dashed and other airspace depictions, greatly enhancing in-flight awareness. European airspace details have been added to reflect all airspace categories.

Check out the new map:



AHRS Cross-Checking: Multiple AHRS units are now constantly cross-checked in the background and will alert the user if they do not agree. The user is then presented with a simple display of both attitude solutions so they can choose the correct one.

Enhanced Network redundancy: The system now utilizes a fully redundant power and data network between the SkyView screens and modules. This prevents almost all single wire failures from causing a loss of data.

Default Looks very pretty

But might it be getting a little 'cluttered' for something that might be just 7 or 10 inches big? Might well increase head in cockpit time....never a good idea IMO, but will be easier to use than a map.

Anything you don't care to see on the map can be turned off, which can help clutter enormously.

Here's a sectional of the same area. You can see it's not exactly easy to read! You can see how much easier the restricted area is to see on our map (orange, up top)

Sorry, I'm still chuckling about that . What does that look like?

Can you set the degree to which they must disagree before you are notified? I'm sure that two different AHRS units will come up with slightly different readings and there must be some epsilon that would be exceeded before notification would be necessary. What are those epsilon values?

The user gets a warning that says "AHRS CROSS-CHECK ERROR: PITCH". They can then press a button, which will display both AHRS solutions side by side. The user can press "disable" on the AHRS that they no longer want in the system.

You cannot set the disagreement ranges yourself. We have chosen values that we believe are reasonable to catch AHRS units that are in serious disagreement without giving nuisance alarms. Each term (G-meter, pitch, roll, heading, airspeed, etc) has a different difference based on our data. There is more processing going on as well besides just simple differences.

I take your point, but in my defence I did say I thought it would be better than a map

Look at your third attitude source, or engage your independent autopilot and see which one agrees at that point!
