Nothing like having your own radar-like warning system in
flight. *** “Within the United States, SkyView displays TIS traffic when connected to Dynon Mode-S transponders or a Garmin GTX 330 Mode-S transponder,” stated Dynon. TIS is a ground-based system available in all Class B and some Class C airspace where most traffic conflicts arise.
SkyView can also receive traffic information from a Zaon
XRX PCAS passive traffic receiver, a Navworx
ADS-B receiver, a Trig
ADS-B receiver, or any device that outputs the industry standard
GTX 330 TIS
traffic format. Essentially this means SkyView’s new traffic feature
can be used worldwide. *** The new traffic feature comes with all Version 2.6 software, available
now on all new SkyView units and downloadable for
free for current SkyView owners.
