AvionicsData-Wireless-USB-Stick (ADS) vs. a regular memory stick

An often-heard complaint is that in order to update your SkyViews database you need to remember to prepare the regular SkyView memory stick at home before going to the airfield. The AvionicsData stick solves this by allowing to receive all your SkyViews AeroData over Wi-Fi using the  EasyVFR 4 app. Meaning that with the new AvioncsData stick you can easily update your SkyView using your smartphone or tablet that has EasyVFR 4 installed.

  • Note that the AvionicsDataStick has its own Wi-Fi network and does act as a SkyView Wi-Fi dongle. You still need that one to receive and send routes from and to your SkyView.
  • If you don't have the AvionicsData stick you can still use below's tutorial to update your regular memory stick but you will be limited to use a Windows or macOS desktop.
