Another vendor has this in their new product line and would be a great feature to add to the Skyview. Have the map inside the HSI allows a larger PFD view versus split screen PFD / Map.

Agreed, I literally never use the synthetic vision or even the PFD's compass widget so the PFD half has a lot of wasted space. Having the option of replacing the synthetic vision with the moving map would be awesome.

Just to clarify, I fly with PFD / MAP but want to fly with PFD full screen or 80/20 with the EMS in the 20. You have to have the PFD view to see airspeed, altitude and a number of other items that are only in that view.

With dual screens, I sometimes run EMS / MAP on the right screen and full PFD on the left but the glare of the sun sometimes makes the right screen hard to see.

Oh you're describing the opposite of what I was thinking. I find the only useful parts of the PFD are the left edge, top edge, and right edge, where the altitude-related, airspeed-related, heading and wind information is. The entire center area, where the synthetic vision is, is useless to me.

Attached is an extremely crude mock-up; imagine the map covers the green areas. All the PFD info is there (aside from attitude indication) but with a moving map replacing the synthetic vision.
