Flew 2 hours today without the USB stick. Everything normal till about 8 minutes in flight. SkyView went blank and rebooted once, with no caution messages. Flew the remainder of the two hour flight with everything normal.
I feel safe in thinking this was probably due to remnants of the problems with the previous flight.
The USB stick I had plugged in under the SkyView ( I have the wifi adapter plugged in the back) contained an expired version of Seattle Avionics sectional charts. I had allowed it to expire and got a message to that effect on each boot up. The only reason I kept it was for the georeferenced a/c position on their taxi chart which sometimes was of use.
I plan on using iFly GPS 740 in the near future. SkyView shows the basic architecture for the Seattle charts just saying there are none. Does anyone know how to remove the Seattle root architecture?
The other reason I kept the USB plugged in was in case of a need to export a diagnostic file as in the incident I just had.
