Flew 2 hours today without the USB stick. Everything normal till about 8 minutes in flight. SkyView went blank and rebooted once, with no caution messages. Flew the remainder of the two hour flight with everything normal.

I feel safe in thinking this was probably due to remnants of the problems with the previous flight.

The USB stick I had plugged in under the SkyView ( I have the wifi adapter plugged in the back) contained an expired version of Seattle Avionics sectional charts. I had allowed it to expire and got a message to that effect on each boot up. The only reason I kept it was for the georeferenced a/c position on their taxi chart which sometimes was of use.
I plan on using iFly GPS 740 in the near future. SkyView shows the basic architecture for the Seattle charts just saying there are none. Does anyone know how to remove the Seattle root architecture?

The other reason I kept the USB plugged in was in case of a need to export a diagnostic file as in the incident I just had.

Default Same issue

I have also experienced loosing both my 10" skyview touch screens in flight multiple times. Dynon had me send it back and told me it was a hardware issue and they fixed it, but yesterday I lost my left screen twice, and then both screens. They eventually rebooted. I'm going to upload the data to dynon today. I'm wondering how many other people have this issue?

I had my primary screen go down and reboot several times on Fiske approach to Oshkosh this year. Not the best time to happen. Provided them diagnostics at the show and they said low voltage (assumed because of low rpm and everything on including landing lights). Provided to Dynon tech support later and they said they recorded voltage going to zero. Not possible since I have a backup battery and the secondary screen without a backup stayed up. Sound like I may have the same issue but it has not happened since. Am installing a battery on the secondary screen for backup at annual.

Do you have backup batteries on one or both screens?

I have a back up battery on 1 screen, not the other. But my avidyne 440 stayed on, I do not believe it was a power issue. Also, a warning came up when it rebooted saying system event 3. In the past it has said event 5 and event 3. Since it was sent back to dynon I have not seen anything about 5 only 3. This is happening on about half of my flights that are over an hour lately.
