Upgraded Dynon to Touch

Saturday, 7 Nov 2015

I decided to upgrade my left Dynon D1000 EFIS to the touchscreen version while Dynon still offers the trade-in option for $800. It was simple to pull the unit out and ship it back to Dynon for the upgrade (pre-authorized by Dynon with a RMA).

Left Dynon EFIS removed for upgrade

It took a little more than a week from the day I shipped my old unit to Dynon until the new Touch version arrived at my door. I put it back into the panel today and made sure it was working properly. It’s all good except I have to get a new license code for my navigation map subscription.

Here is the panel with the new EFIS mounted. You can see the Touch logo in the upper right hand corner if you look closely. I decided not to upgrade the copilot EFIS because it’s not really needed. The right EFIS is great for the passenger to see what’s going on but the primary control of the EFIS is virtually always done from the left seat.

While I was messing around I made a little cushioned pad for the edge of the fuel pump cover. My leg rests there often and the bare edge gets uncomfortable after a while. This little pad does the job.
