Default The dongle it is, mainly do to potential value impact from LSA rule changes

Thank you for the insight on the Touch and dongle capabilities. As a measured response to pending eventual LSA spec changes and potential devaluation I’ll see what the dongle will do for me for now. Any opinions about that rationale?

My opinion is that $35 for the Dynon WiFi adapter is too much money when this one is available for $10. I bought one and it seems to be totally equivalent.

Dang, that’s 25$ in gas! Say why wouldn’t SV have some Flight planning memory? That seems basic for that level of technology.

Skyview does have Flight plan memory. Flight plans get stored on the removable memory stick . For users of the Ifly app, that now communicates with the Skyview.
