Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: The indicators represented on the Panel are based on GPS-derived
data and may differ from the instruments in the aircraft.
WARNING: Navigation and terrain separation must NOT be predicated upon
the use of the terrain function. The G3X™ MFD Terrain Proximity feature is NOT
intended to be used as a primary reference for terrain avoidance and does not
relieve the pilot from the responsibility of being aware of surroundings during
flight. The Terrain Proximity feature is only to be used as an aid for terrain
avoidance and is not certified for use in applications requiring a certified
terrain awareness system. Terrain data is obtained from third party sources.
Garmin is not able to independently verify the accuracy of the terrain data.
WARNING: The displayed minimum safe altitudes (MSAs) are only advisory
in nature and should not be relied upon as the sole source of obstacle and
terrain avoidance information. Always refer to current aeronautical charts
for appropriate minimum clearance altitudes.
WARNING: The altitude calculated by G3X MFD receivers is geometric height
above Mean Sea Level and could vary significantly from the altitude displayed
by pressure altimeters. Always use pressure altitude when determining or
selecting aircraft altitude.
WARNING: Do not use outdated database information. Databases used in the
G3X MFD must be updated regularly in order to ensure that the information
remains current. Pilots using any outdated database do so entirely at their
own risk.
WARNING: Do not use basemap (land and water data) information for
primary navigation. Basemap data is intended only to supplement other
approved navigation data sources and should be considered as an aid to
enhance situational awareness.
WARNING: Traffic information is provided as an aid in visually acquiring
traffic. Pilots must maneuver the aircraft based only upon ATC guidance or
positive visual acquisition of conflicting traffic.

190-01055-00 Rev. A
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: XM® Weather should not be used for hazardous weather
penetration. Weather information is approved only for weather avoidance,
not penetration.
Warning: NEXRAD weather data is to be used for long-range planning
purposes only. Due to inherent delays in data transmission and the relative
age of the data, NEXRAD weather data should not be used for short-range
weather avoidance.
WARNING: The illustrations in this guide are only examples. Never use the
G3X MFD to attempt to penetrate a thunderstorm. Both the FAA Advisory
Circular, Subject: Thunderstorms, and the Aeronautical Information Manual
(AIM) recommend avoiding “by at least 20 miles any thunderstorm identified
as severe or giving an intense radar echo.”
WARNING: The Garmin G3X MFD has a very high degree of functional
integrity. However, the pilot must recognize that providing monitoring and/or
self-test capability for all conceivable system failures is not practical. Although
unlikely, it may be possible for erroneous operation to occur without a fault
indication shown by the G3X MFD. It is thus the responsibility of the pilot to
detect such an occurrence by means of cross-checking with all redundant or
correlated information available in the cockpit.
WARNING: For safety reasons, G3X MFD operational procedures must be
learned on the ground.
WARNING: The United States government operates the Global Positioning
System and is solely responsible for its accuracy and maintenance. The GPS
system is subject to changes which could affect the accuracy and performance
of all GPS equipment. Portions of the Garmin G3X MFD utilize GPS as a
precision electronic NAVigation AID (NAVAID). Therefore, as with all NAVAIDs,
information presented by the G3X MFD can be misused or misinterpreted
and, therefore, become unsafe.
190-01055-00 Rev. A
Garmin G3X MFD Quick Reference Guide
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: To reduce the risk of unsafe operation, carefully review and
understand all aspects of the G3X MFD Pilot’s Guide documentation and
the Pilot’s Operating Handbook of the aircraft. Thoroughly practice basic
operation prior to actual use. During flight operations, carefully compare
indications from the G3X MFD to all available navigation sources, including
the information from other NAVAIDs, visual sightings, charts, etc. For safety
purposes, always resolve any discrepancies before continuing navigation.
WARNING: The data contained in the terrain and obstacle databases comes
from government agencies. Garmin accurately processes and cross-validates
the data, but cannot guarantee the accuracy and completeness of the data.
CAUTION: The display uses a lens coated with a special anti-reflective coating
that is very sensitive to skin oils, waxes, and abrasive cleaners. CLEANERS
CONTAINING AMMONIA WILL HARM THE ANTI-REFLECTIVE COATING. It is
very important to clean the lens using a clean, lint-free cloth and an eyeglass
lens cleaner that is specified as safe for anti-reflective coatings.
CAUTION: The Garmin G3X MFD does not contain any user-serviceable
parts. Repairs should only be made by an authorized Garmin service center.
Unauthorized repairs or modifications could void both the warranty and the
pilot’s authority to operate this device under FAA/FCC regulations.
nOTE: All visual depictions contained within this document, including screen
images of the G3X MFD, are subject to change and may not reflect the most
current G3X MFD system and aviation databases. Depictions of equipment
may differ slightly from the actual equipment.
NOTE: This product, its packaging, and its components contain chemicals
known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or reproductive
harm. This notice is being provided in accordance with California’s Proposition
65. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please

Warnings, Cautions & Notes
NOTE: Use of polarized eyewear may cause the flight displays to appear dim
or blank.
NOTE: Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) data is provided by the FAA and
may not be updated outside of normal business hours. Confirm data currency
through alternate sources and contact your local FSS for interpretation of TFR
data.
NOTE: The purpose of this document is to provide a resource with which to
find operating instructions on the major features of the G3X MFD more easily.
It is not intended to be a comprehensive operating guide. Complete operating
procedures for the G3X MFD are found in the G3X MFD Pilot’s Guide.
