Dynon Avionics announced Version 3.0 firmware for the SkyView Integrated Glass Panel system. This release allows SkyView to utilize Jeppesen NavData as part of its GPS navigation software. Other new features include greatly enhanced airport data viewable through an intuitive user interface, airspace altitudes, a larger HSI display and a pilot-selectable G meter.
As part of the agreement between Dynon and Jeppesen, Jeppesen is offering 50% off the regular annual subscription price for NavData and obstacle data for Dynon customers until midnight MDT May 15, 2011 with promotion code DY50N011. That’s a savings of up to $265 (€204).
“Jeppesen provides industry-leading solutions for the innovators and aviation enthusiasts associated with the light sport and experimental aircraft industry,” said Scott Reagan, director, Jeppesen OEM client management. “Jeppesen’s world-class NavData information integrated with Dynon Avionics SkyView system serves this dynamic segment of the aviation community and ensures delivery of the highest quality flight information available for aircraft owner/operators.”
Version 3.0 makes available SkyView SV-MAP-270 GPS Navigation Software for a one-time fee of $500. Customers can use this software on their SkyView as a free trial for 30 flight hours. Robert Hamilton, marketing director for Dynon, says, “The user interface for the SkyView mapping software is highly intuitive, making it quick and easy to navigate to an airport and find runway information, airport elevations, and frequencies for your arrival.”
