Default Skyview Software Update 15.3.3

Just FYI for SkyView users, Dynon has now posted v15.3.3 for download at http://www.dynonavionics.com/skyview...re-updates.php. This release, among many other things, supposedly fixes the issues with the SV-ADSB-472.

There is also a hardware fix for the 472. If you have one, you'll need to contact Dynon for a replacement.

They mentioned it in the Dynon Forum 472 discussion... But they didn't give any information on replacements, just stating that production would begin and they would start shipping again.

From there Feb 28th response...
"If there's a caveat, it's that production numbers are going to ramp over the coming weeks, and there are literally hundreds of people out there that need a -472. Not everyone is experiencing performance issues with what they have, so in the coming days we'll figure out a mechanism for those of you that are especially frustrated to get some of the earlier production. Know that the coming SkyView software update also includes an update for all SV-ADSB-472s, so even before you get the latest hardware, you'll see some improvement from that too (it updates similar to how the transponder does, for what it's worth)"

Hopefully they put out something soon on a replacement plan for those of us that already have the 472.

Yeah, I saw that when it was posted, but haven't seen anything that says they're ready for users to contact them at this time, which is what led to my question.

Just got our first 472 yesterday and installed it today. Looks like I had better put in the new software before going any further.

It was posted by Dynon in their forum a few weeks back.

Can anyone confirm that with 15.3.3, Skyview sends ADSB traffic and weather with Foreflight over WiFi? I know that a couple people have seen it work prior to 15.3.3, but it never did for me. Now they say sharing traffic is working, but I can't load the update yet due to a long trip coming up this weekend and a personal policy to make no changes with the aircraft immediately prior to a trip.

So, is traffic working for you? Does weather work too?

From the 15.3.3 release notes:
Fixed: Wi-Fi traffic transmission to supporting apps improved.

I haven't tried it yet. I usually have Foreflight running on my iPhone while flying, but I've never seen traffic or weather transmitted to it from the Skyview Wifi.

Does anyone here know how to set this up?

No setup needed that I am aware. Connect to the WiFi dongle with your phone, as you would for loading a flight plan. I had weather in FF previously, as did others, but nobody had traffic.

With traffic and WX on the Skyview, I don't have a need for either in FF but I imagine some back-seat folks would like to see it.
