Getting Started
Getting Started
Combining a powerful 760 channel VHF communications transceiver with 200 channel
VOR, Localizer and Glideslope receivers, the SL30 provides a full-functioned navigation and
communications solution in a small footprint at a very affordable price. Besides traditional
Nav/Com features, the SL30 also incorporates workload-reducing functions such as automatic decoding of the Morse code station identifier for VOR/LOC, most-used frequency storage
in memory, built-in course deviation indicator, and more.
The SL30, the smallest Nav/Com on the market, is loaded with features and functionality. The only Nav/Com with the ability to monitor the standby Com and Nav frequencies,
the SL30 VHF Nav receiver operates from 108 MHz to 117.95 MHz decoding both the VHF
Omni Range and Localizer navigation signals. The built in Glideslope receiver will automatically tune the corresponding glideslope paired frequencies (328 MHz to 335 MHz) when the
localizer is tuned. The SL30 includes the powerful yet efficient 8 watt com transmitter used
in the other SL Slimline and GX avionics.

Low and High Display Intensity
As it arrives from the factory, the SL30 automatically adjusts its display brightness for
the current lighting conditions. A small sensor at the upper left of the display is used for
this function. There are two adjustments available for controlling the brightness level of the
display. The first controls the lower brightness level in the automatic adjustment range (Low
Display Intensity). This is the brightness used when in total darkness. The second adjusts the
upper limit of this range (High Display Intensity). This is used when bright light is shining
on the display.
The factory settings for these are at the limits of the range, 0 (Low Display Intensity) and
100 (High Display Intensity). The range can be adjusted by using the Small knob to adjust
the two values.
Some users may wish to disable the automatic dimming function. This can be accomplished by setting the high display level to zero. Now the low level adjustment will set the
brightness of the display directly with no automatic adjustment made based on ambient
light.

Appendix
Limited Warranty
All Garmin avionics products are warranted to be free from defects in materials or workmanship for: two years from the date of purchase for new Remote-Mount and Panel-Mount
products; one year from the date of purchase for new portable products and any purchased newly-overhauled products; six months for newly-overhauled products exchanged through a
Garmin Authorized Service Center; and 90 days for factory repaired or newly-overhauled products exchanged at Garmin in lieu of repair. Within the applicable period, Garmin will, at its
sole option, repair or replace any components that fail in normal use. Such repairs or replacement will be made at no charge to the customer for parts or labor, provided that the customer
shall be responsible for any transportation cost. This warranty does not apply to: (i) cosmetic damage, such as scratches, nicks and dents; (ii) consumable parts, such as batteries, unless
product damage has occurred due to a defect in materials or workmanship; (iii) damage caused by accident, abuse, misuse, water, flood, fire, or other acts of nature or external causes; (iv)
damage caused by service performed by anyone who is not an authorized service provider of Garmin; or (v) damage to a product that has been modified or altered without the written
permission of Garmin. In addition, Garmin reserves the right to refuse warranty claims against products or services that are obtained and/or used in contravention of the laws of any
country.
THE WARRANTIES AND REMEDIES CONTAINED HEREIN ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING ANY
LIABILITY ARISING UNDER ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC
LEGAL RIGHTS, WHICH MAY VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.
IN NO EVENT SHALL GARMIN BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WHETHER RESULTING FROM THE USE, MISUSE OR INABILITY TO USE
THE PRODUCT OR FROM DEFECTS IN THE PRODUCT. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY
NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Garmin retains the exclusive right to repair or replace (with a new or newly-overhauled replacement product) the product or software or offer a full refund of the purchase price at its sole
discretion. SUCH REMEDY SHALL BE YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY.
Online Auction Purchases: Products purchased through online auctions are not eligible for warranty coverage. Online auction confirmations are not accepted for warranty verification.
To obtain warranty service, an original or copy of the sales receipt from the original retailer is required. Garmin will not replace missing components from any package purchased through
an online auction.
International Purchases: A separate warranty may be provided by international distributors for devices purchased outside the United States depending on the country. If applicable, this
warranty is provided by the local in-country distributor and this distributor provides local service for your device. Distributor warranties are only valid in the area of intended distribution.
Devices purchased in the United States or Canada must be returned to the Garmin service center in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, or Taiwan for service.
