LIMITATIONS
1.
The GPS 400, GNC 420/420A, or GNS 430/430A upgraded to include Terrain must utilize Main SubSystem Version 5.03 or later FAA approved software version. The Main software version is displayed
on the self test page immediately after turn-on for 5 seconds.
2.
Navigation must not be predicated upon the use of the TERRAIN display.
NOTE: The terrain display is intended to serve as a situational awareness tool only and does not
provide TAWS capability. It does not provide either the accuracy or fidelity, or both, on which
to solely base decisions and plan maneuvers to avoid terrain or obstacles.
3.
To avoid giving unwanted alerts, TERRAIN should be inhibited when landing at an airport that is not
included in the airport database.
4.
Pilots are NOT authorized to deviate from their current ATC clearance to comply with terrain/obstacle
alerts from a TERRAIN unit except as allowed by 14 CFR Part 91.3(b). TERRAIN unit alerts are
advisory only and are not equivalent to warnings provided by a TAWS unit.
5.
The TERRAIN databases have an area of coverage as detailed below:
(a) The Worldwide Terrain Database has an area of coverage from North 75° Latitude to South 60°
Latitude in all longitudes.
(b) The US Airport Terrain Database has an area of coverage that includes the United States. The
North American Airport Terrain Database has an area of coverage that includes the United States
and portions of Canada, Mexico, and Latin America. The Worldwide Airport Terrain Database
has an area of coverage that includes airports from North 75° Latitude to South 60° Latitude in all
longitudes.
(c) The US/Europe Obstacle Database has an area of coverage that includes the United States and
Europe.
NOTE: The area of coverage may be modified, as additional terrain data sources become available.
