CAUTIONS
CAUTION: The Global Positioning System is operated by the
United States government, which is solely responsible for its
accuracy and maintenance. The system is subject to changes
which could affect the accuracy and performance of all GPS
equipment. Although the Garmin 400W-series are precision
electronic NAVigation AIDs (NAVAID), any NAVAID can be
misused or misinterpreted and therefore become unsafe.
CAUTION: Use the 400W-series at your own risk. To reduce the
risk of unsafe operation, carefully review and understand all
aspects of this Owner’s Manual and the Flight Manual Supplement, and thoroughly practice basic operation prior to actual
use. When in actual use, carefully compare indications from the
400W-series to all available navigation sources, including the
information from other NAVAIDS, visual sightings, charts, etc.
For safety, always resolve any discrepancies before continuing
navigation.
WARNING: The altitude calculated by the 400W-series
is geometric height above mean sea level and could vary
significantly from altitude displayed by pressure altimeters in
aircraft.
WARNING: The Jeppesen database incorporated in the
400W-series must be updated regularly in order to ensure
that its information is current. Updates are released every
28 days. A database information packet is included in your
400W-series package. Pilots using an out-of-date database
do so entirely at their own risk!
CAUTION: GPS receivers operate by receiving and decoding very low power radio signals broadcast by satellites. It
is possible that in some situations other radio equipment
or electronic equipment used in close proximity to a GPS
receiver may create electromagnetic interference (EMI) which
may affect the ability of the GPS receiver to receive and
decode the satellite signals. In such event, the interference
may be reduced or eliminated by switching off the source of
interference or moving the GPS receiver away from it.
CAUTION: The electronic chart is an aid to navigation and
is designed to facilitate the use of authorized government
charts, not replace them. Land and water data is provided
only as a general reference to your surroundings. The positional accuracy of the land and water data is not of a precision suitable for use in navigation and it should not be used
for navigation. Only official government charts and notices
contain all information needed for safe navigation – and, as
always, the user is responsible for their prudent use.
CAUTION: The Terrain feature is for supplemental awareness
only. The pilot/crew is responsible for all terrain and obstacle
avoidance using information not provided by the 400W-series
Terrain feature.
CAUTION: The Garmin 400W-series does not contain any
user-serviceable parts. Repairs should only be made by an
authorized Garmin service center. Unauthorized repairs or
modifications could void your warranty and authority to
operate this device under FCC Part 15 regulations.
NOTE: The GNS 400W-series units use a different database
than in the legacy units. The databases are incompatible
between units. The GNS 400W-series units must use a WAAS
enabled database.
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 refer to our website at www.garmin.com/prop65.
NOTE: It is the pilot’s responsibility for initial missed approach guidance in accordance with published procedure. The
unit may not provide correct guidance until established on a
defined leg.
NOTE: GPS level of service annunciations (LPV, ENR, etc.)
are not applicable to the external CDI (or HSI) when VLOC is
active.
WARNING: VNAV is to be used for advisory purposes only.
VNAV messages or vertical speed required should not be
used to maintain terrain or ATC clearances. Terrain and ATC
clearances are the sole responsibility of the pilot.

MODEL DESCRIPTIONS
Model Descriptions
This guide covers the operation of the GPS 400W, GNC
420W, GNC 420AW, GNS 430W, and GNS 430AW. In
general, all models will be referred to as the 400W-series,
except where there are physical or operational differences.
The 400W-series units are 6.25” wide and 2.66” high. The
display is a 240-by-128 pixel color LCD. The units include
two removable data cards: one with a Jeppesen database
(inserted in the left-most card slot) and the second is a Terrain database (inserted in the right-most card slot).
mation, the GPS 400W can connect to XM Satellite Radio’s
XM WX Weather Service via the GDL 69/69A datalink
receiver. The GDL 69A can also allow you to subscribe to
XM audio services.

GPS 400W
The GPS 400W is a GPS-only unit with a WAAS GPS
engine and is TSO C146a certified for en route, terminal,
precision, and non-precision approaches. The GPS 400W
can simultaneously give aviators vital approach information
and weather and traffic data in relation to their position
on a color moving map display. Thanks to a high-contrast
color display, the information can be easily read from wide
viewing angles even in direct sunlight. Its color moving
map features a built-in database that shows cities, highways, railroads, rivers, lakes, coastlines, and a complete
Jeppesen aviation database. The Jeppesen aviation database
(can be updated with a front-loading data card) contains
all airports, VORs, NDBs, Intersections, FSS, Approach,
DPs/STARs, and SUA information. The obstacle and terrain
databases provide an aid to navigation to help you work
with approved navigation charts.
Pilots will enjoy the GPS 400W as a multi-function
display (MFD), especially when it is coupled with traffic, lightning detection, and weather interfaces like Ryan
TCAD, TIS from the Garmin GTX 330 Mode S transponder, L3 SKYWATCH™, or STORMSCOPE® WX 500. With
the FDE prediction program included with the Trainer CD,
the GPS 400W may be used for oceanic or remote operations. For the latest in graphical and textual weather infor2
GNC 420W and GNC 420AW
The GNC 420W and GNC 420AW include all of the
features of the GPS 400W, and also include an IFR certified
airborne VHF communications transceiver. This multipurpose unit is available with either a 10-watt (GNS 420W)
or 16-watt (GNS 420AW) Com transmitter. Since the only
difference between these two units is the power of the
communications transmitter, references to the GNC 420W
will also include the GNC 420 AW.
GNS 430W and GNS 430AW
The GNS 430W and GNS 430AW include all of the
features of the GPS 420W/420AW, and also include IFR
certified airborne VOR/Localizer and Glideslope receivers.
This multipurpose unit is available with either a 10-watt
(GNS 430W) or 16-watt (GNS 430AW) Com transmitter.
Since the only difference between these two units is the
power of the communications transmitter, references to the
GNS 430W will also include the GNS 430 AW.

APPROACHES
6.
Selecting Approaches
In order to select an approach, you must first
have an active direct-to or flight plan that terminates at an airport with a published approach.
1. Press the PROC key to display the procedures
page.
2. Turn the large right
knob to highlight “Select
Approach?” and press
the ENT key.
3. A window will appear
listing the available procedures. Turn the large
right knob to highlight
the desired procedure
and press the ENT key.
4. A second window will
appear listing the available transitions. Turn the
large right knob to highlight the desired transition
waypoint and press the
ENT key. The approach “Vectors” option assumes
you will receive vectors to the final course segment
of the approach and will provide navigation guidance relative to the final approach course.
5. Turn the large right knob to highlight “Load?”
or “Activate?” and press the ENT key. “Load?”
will add the procedure to the flight plan without
immediately using it for navigation guidance. This
allows you to continue navigating the original flight
plan, but keeps the procedure available on the
active flight plan page for quick activation when
needed. "Activate?" overrides the "en route" portion of the active flight plan, proceeding directly to
the "approach" portion.
16
For non-GPS approved approaches, a reminder
window will appear indicating that GPS guidance
on such approaches is
strictly for monitoring
only—use the VLOC
receiver and external CDI
(or HSI) for primary navigation. To confirm this
reminder, highlight “Yes?” and press the ENT
key.
Not all approaches in the database are approved for
GPS use. As you select an approach, a “GPS” designation to the right of the procedure name indicates the
procedure can be flown using the GPS receiver. Some
procedures will not have this designation, meaning the GPS
receiver may be used for supplemental navigation guidance
only. If the GPS receiver cannot be used for primary guidance, you must use the appropriate receiver for the selected
approach (e.g., VOR or ADF). The final course segment of
ILS approaches, for example, must be flown by tuning
the VLOC receiver to the proper frequency and coupling
the VLOC receiver to the external CDI (or HSI).
A selected approach may be activated or loaded. Activating the approach overrides the “en route” portion of the
active flight plan, proceeding directly to the “approach”
portion (for a full approach, directly to the approach
transition). Activating the approach also initiates automatic
CDI scaling transitions as the approach progresses.
In many cases, it may be easiest to “Load” the full
approach while still some distance away, en route to the
destination airport. Later, if vectored to final, use the
following steps to select “Activating an Approach with Vectors-To-Final”—which makes the inbound course to the
FAF waypoint active. Otherwise, activate the full approach
using the “Activate Approach?” option.
190-00356-01 Rev E
APPROACHES
Activating an Approach
1.
With an approach loaded
in the active flight plan,
press the PROC key to
display the procedures
page.
2.
Turn the large right
knob to highlight “Activate Approach?”.
3.
Press the ENT key.
• You will typically select the destination airport as the
last waypoint in the active flight plan or by using the
direct-to key. Doing so ensures that the desired waypoint
will automatically appear when choosing the “Select
Approach?” option from the procedures page. Otherwise,
you must first choose the airport, then the approach
procedure.
• When a localizer-based approach (such as an ILS) is
loaded, the desired frequency is automatically placed in
standby on the VLOC window. To activate the frequency,
press the VLOC flip/flop key.
Activating an Approach with Vectors-To-Final
The “Activate Vector-To-Final?” option allows you
to activate the final course segment of the approach.
This option assumes you will receive vectors to the final
approach course and guides you to intercept the final
course, before reaching the FAF.
1. With an approach loaded
in the active flight plan,
press the PROC key to
display the procedures
page.
2. Turn the large right
knob to highlight “Activate Vector-To-Final?”.
3. Press the ENT key.
Flying an Approach
Due to the variety of available approach procedures, the
specific steps required will vary according to the approach
selected. Keep the following general guidelines in mind
while flying the approach:
• The 400W series is designed to complement your
printed approach plates and improve situational
awareness throughout the approach. However, you
must always fly an approach as it appears on the
approach plate.
• If the VLOC receiver will be used for the approach, be
sure to switch the external CDI (or HSI) to “VLOC” by
pressing the CDI key. “VLOC” will appear directly above
the CDI key.
• An “Auto ILS CDI” setting provides automatic switching
to “VLOC” as you intercept the final approach course.
When the ILS approach is activated (and the correct
frequency is active in the VLOC window), the unit will
automatically switch within 1.2 nautical miles left or right
of the approach course. This switch can take place anywhere from 2.0 to 15.0 nautical miles from the FAF. The
switch occurs gradually to prevent abrupt CDI changes.
This does not occur automatically when configured for the
King KAP140/KFC225 autopilots as Auto ILS CDI Selection
is not allowed.
• As you progress to each approach waypoint, a waypoint
alert message (“NEXT DTK ###°”) will appear in the
lower right corner of the display.
• When you should begin a course change (via a standard
rate turn), turn advisories (“TURN TO ###°”) will appear
in the lower right corner of the display.
• For GPS-based approaches, receiver autonomous integrity monitoring (RAIM) will monitor satellite conditions
and alert you—using an “INTEG” at the bottom left
corner of the display — if protection limits cannot be
190-00356-01 Rev E

APPROACHES
maintained. If this occurs, the GPS receiver should not
be used for primary navigation guidance. Revert to an
alternate navigation source, or select an alternate destination airport. LPV, LNAV+V, and L/VNAV approaches
will downgrade to LNAV if GPS integrity cannot be
met. There is no need to switch to guidance by other
navigation equipment unless GPS LNAV is insufficient
or integrity degrades further.
• Within 31 nautical miles of the destination airport, CDI
scaling will transition from 2.0 NM (en route mode, or
“ENR”) to 1.0 nautical mile (terminal mode, or “TERM”).
Conversely, when leaving the departure airport, CDI scaling will transition from 1.0 NM to 2.0 NM when 30 miles
out. GPS-based approaches will see a second transition
when within 2.0 NM of the final approach fix, scaling
from 1.0 NM to angular full-scale deflection (approach
mode, or “LNAV, LNAV+V, L/LNAV, or LPV”).
• As you cross the missed
approach point, “SUSP” will
appear above the OBS key,
indicating that automatic
sequencing of waypoints
is suspended at the missed
approach point, and a “from” indication will appear on
the CDI (or HSI).
Flying the Missed Approach
1.
After crossing the Missed Approach Point, press
the OBS key. The next waypoint in the approach
is automatically offered as the destination
waypoint.
2.
Follow the missed approach procedures, as published on your approach plate, for proper climb and
heading instructions.
3.
An alert message in the lower right hand corner
of the screen will recommend entry procedures for
the holding pattern (e.g.,
“HOLD TEARDROP”). As
you fly the holding pattern, a timer appears on
the default NAV page. The timer automatically
resets on the outbound side of the hold when you
are abeam the hold waypoint. The timer again
resets as you turn inbound (within approximately
30° of the inbound course).
4.
The unit will provide course guidance only on the
inbound side of the holding pattern, however guidance is provided along the entire holding pattern
via roll steering-equipped autopilots. When leaving the holding pattern to re-fly the approach (or
another approach) press the PROC key to “Select
Approach?” or “Activate Approach?” as previously
described. (Or, use the direct-to key to select
another destination).
• A "RT TO xxx° x S" or "LT TO xxx° x S" prompt will
appear in the lower right corner of the display to advise
you when you are at a safe distance to initiate a procedure
turn. The procedure turn is displayed on the map page,
but guidance through the turn itself is not provided
except via roll steering-equipped autopilots.
• Alerts for proper holding pattern entry (e.g. “HOLD
DIRECT”) are displayed in the lower right corner of the
display. Waypoint sequencing is automatically suspended
(indicated by “SUSP” directly above the OBS key) at the
holding waypoint. Press the OBS key again to return to
automatic waypoint sequencing. For course reversals,
waypoint sequencing is suspended for one trip around
the holding pattern only, after which it will return to
automatic waypoint sequencing.
• The CDI will guide you through a DME arc. Just keep
the needle centered as you fly along the arc.
