The main reason I downloaded from Dynon this time was because of the updated SV-GPS-2020 software.

In the confusion I skipped update 15-3-5 so is that data included in the next update (15-4-7) or do I have to go back and update that one?
Also I really need to remove the WiFi adapter to do the update?
Here are the direct answers to the questions I posted.
From Dynon Tech Support:

"You do not have to do the intermediate updates, the latest update is all inclusive. It will have the previous update information included. There is no requirement to remove the WiFi during updates, but it is not a bad idea to prevent any problems."

Thanks I saw that.
I have already downloaded the latest firmware from Dynon and don’t see any settings changes on the Van’s site which currently affect me, but I’ll download from them again in the future.

I've been using Seattle Avionics for my sectionals, approach plates, enroute charts and airport diagrams for 2 years now. For $100/year it's tough to beat. I believe they support the Dynon equipment, leave the download manager running in the background and it automatically loads updates as the become current. I'm running Dual AFS 5600T's loaded through 2 USB memory sticks.
