Default Skyview 1000 Software Upgrade; Which One?

It's time to upgrade my Skyview from 14.x to 15 and there are two different software versions available on the Van's website. For the Skyview D-1000 classic, do I use the (T) version or the HDX? Thanks!

For Skyview 1000T or non-touch, you would go with the non-HDX upgrade. HDX is their newer product that started life with version 15 last year.

If your system is installed in an SLSA, you may be required to run what the MFG has approved.

The "12-SVD1000(T)" is for touch and non-touch D1000. Use that one.

Have you done the software update process before? If not, follow the README and you should have no troubles.

Perhaps you meant SLSA. For ELSA, you don't have to follow MFG approval.
