Test Our New Canadian VNC-Style chart for Dynon 🗺️

by | May 12, 2023 | Development

Dear Canadian Dynon Pilots,

We’re super excited to share a sneak peek of our latest initiative here at the PocketFMS Foundation – a prototype VNC-style charting solution tailored specifically for Dynon SkyView users! This innovative chart integrates our existing Canadian Aeronautical and Obstacle data with the OpenStreetMap and NASA terrain data, to provide comprehensive and precise VFR flight information.

Our Commitment to Excellence 🎯

Your insights and feedback have always been the driving force behind our continuous improvements. Now, we’re embarking on a new journey to offer more comprehensive charting solutions, and once again, we need your help to make this product the best it can be!

Free to Use During the Development Phase 🤖

This is where it gets even better! During the development phase, our first iteration, featuring the loved EasyVFR map design with data from the April 2023 AIRAC cycle, is completely free to download and use. During the development phase, occasionally we’ll send you chart updates at no cost and no strings attached, keeping you ahead of the game at all times.

    Is this just for touch screen Dynon?

    • Tim Peter

      Hi Peter,

      Thank you for your question. Our newly introduced Canada raster chart is indeed compatible with all Dynon SkyViews, including non-touchscreen versions. While they function well with the Classic series, you’ll find the best readability on an HDX.

      If you have a SkyView, I’d recommend subscribing to the Canada chart mailing list using the form provided above. This way, you can receive the chart directly in your inbox to try out.

      Best regards,
      Tim

    Hi there
    I down loaded the new CDN charts onto my laptop and then from there to a memory stick. However when I plugged the memory stick into my SkyView Touch , the file goes not show up or isn’t recognized. This happened yesterday so I went home, deleted everything from the stick and re uploaded the charts file to the stick. Tried it again this morning and no joy. The file does not show up on my Dynon screen. Any suggestions?

      Hi David,

      Thx for helping us with this new chart! Have you copied both the 005J224.dcf and the keyfile 005J224.key to the root of your memory stick? Also you need to activate the chart on your SkyView like described here https://support.easyvfr4.aero/help/dynon-skyview-charts
