Are the servos currently used with my D180  compatible with Skyview (whether standard or HDX). What about sensors, probes, etc) ?

If they have been software upgraded to 5.2 with the D180, Skyview will do rest. Yes they should work, but they can never be downgraded after that.

See page 10-2 of the install manual as well (15.2 rev AC).

Thank you for your answers regarding servos.
Will all sensors & probes with my Rotax 912S (CHT, EGT, RPM, OAT, oil temp and pressure, etc...)be also compatible ? What about my AP74 ?
Thanks with your help ?

Yes, Dynon made the engine instruments very easy to change to Skyview the engine connector is pretty much pin for pin compatible. Skyview controls the servos you won't need the AP74. Read the Skyview conversion guide in the Skyview installation manual.

Thank you.
I understand from your comments that the AP control
Panel interface is not compulsory with Skyview. I am used to flying with the  AP74 and am slightly concerned by having to switch to manipulating the SW...
Any comments ?

Correct. It's optional. SkyView HDX - in particular - has on on-screen interface that very closely mirrors the look and feel of the actual control panel. With SkyView Touch and Classic there are button-based menus for all of the controls too, but the SV-AP-PANEL is more valuable there. If you're using simplified mode (not suitable for IFR), all of the menu options collapse down, so that's something else to consider. It doesn't have as much flexibility as expert mode, but many people find it more than meets their needs, with the ability to hold and change altitudes, direction, and even follow flight plans.

I have watched your tutorials on the Dynon channel and I am becoming more familiar with SW. Thank you
