I've been editing the template file that Dynon offers on their website using the RV-12 POH with some of my own preferences/changes. Still learning how best to abbreviate checklist items and fine tune the screen layout. This is DRAFT - worth the time to go through it line by line and confirm it makes sense. I loaded an earlier version this morning and made some changes since, but as expected Dynon's design is fairly easy to understand. Really like the flexibility to refine any checklist to what you want. (note: I'm keeping my laminated checklist on hand, especially for emergency items. This screen version might prove more convenient, but time will tell. Haven't flown with the electronic list yet.)

So, this file might save you time in customizing for your own use but please poke me if you find sig. errors.

I don't think we ever said you can't paint it. What we generically said was that just because a location worked for the GPS-250 doesn't mean it would work for the GPS-2020, especially if it was under something or had a less than perfect view of the sky. We did actually worry about the RV-12 location but our tests demonstrated otherwise.

Dynon loves the RV-12. No way we'd leave you guys hangin' or make you do a lot of work for a retrofit!
Looks like the existing 250 can be turned sideways and the new 2020 can be mounted beside it....then it appears only one wire would need to be added to the sky view and the rest could be spliced in the the existing wires.

The Skyview GPS puck (actually both an antenna and receiver combined) doesn't need to be precisely level; it is not an ADAHRS.
Can someone tell me the advantage of keeping the old GPS-250, when installing the new 2020? Maybe it has something to do with D180 installations, and not us Skyview guys, but I sure would hate to remove the 250, and then wish that I had kept it.

Thanks.....Tom

Hello Dynon. Is it still true that the Dynon GPS puck holds all the GPS components and antenna not like the Garmin puck is only a antenna. Does it still hold true that Dynon doesn't recommend a under the cowl location because of the heat of the engine and the hot tempertures of the southern United States that might damage the electronics in the puck.

FYI

On the Dynon Forum quite a few folks have been experiencing some issues with SV. 14.0 . I usually wait till Vans vets a new version and then posts the new version along with appropriate settings files in case there are any issues.

Yesterday Dynon posted:-

"We've actually pulled down 14.0 until we have a version with the fix available. So yes, wait until the updated version is out."
