Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: Navigation and terrain separation must NOT be predicated upon
the use of the terrain avoidance feature. The terrain avoidance 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 avoidance feature is only to be used as an aid for
terrain avoidance. 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WARNING: Do not use outdated database information. Databases used in
the system 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 Pilots using any outdated database do so entirely at their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 shown on system displays 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.
WARNING: Do not use data link weather information for maneuvering in, near,
or around areas of hazardous weather. Information contained within data
link weather products may not accurately depict current weather conditions.
WARNING: Do not use the indicated data link weather product age to
determine the age of the weather information shown by the data link weather
product. Due to time delays inherent in gathering and processing weather
data for data link transmission, the weather information shown by the data
link weather product may be significantly older than the indicated weather
product age.

Cockpit Reference Guide for the Prodigy® Flight Deck 300
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: The Prodigy® Integrated Flight Deck, as installed in the Embraer
Phenom 300 aircraft, 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 system. 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, system 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 system utilize GPS as a
precision electronic NAVigation AID (NAVAID). Therefore, as with all NAVAIDs,
information presented by the system can be misused or misinterpreted and,
therefore, become unsafe.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of unsafe operation, carefully review and
understand all aspects of the Prodigy® Pilot’s Guide documentation and the
Embraer Phenom 300 Airplane Flight Manual. Thoroughly practice basic
operation prior to actual use. During flight operations, carefully compare
indications from the system 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 illustrations in this guide are only examples. Never use
the system 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: Lamp(s) inside this product may contain mercury (HG) and must
be recycled or disposed of according to local, state, or federal laws. For
more information, refer to our website at www.garmin.com/aboutGarmin/
environment/disposal.jsp.
Cockpit Reference Guide for the Prodigy® Flight Deck 300
190-00761-05 Rev. A
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: Because of variation in the earth’s magnetic field, operating the
system within the following areas could result in loss of reliable attitude and
heading indications. North of 72° North latitude at all longitudes. South of
70° South latitude at all longitudes. North of 65° North latitude between
longitude 75° W and 120° W. (Northern Canada). North of 70° North latitude
between longitude 70° W and 128° W. (Northern Canada). North of 70° North
latitude between longitude 85° E and 114° E. (Northern Russia). South of
55° South latitude between longitude 120° E and 165° E. (Region south of
Australia and New Zealand).
WARNING: Do not use GPS to navigate to any active waypoint identified as
a ‘NON WGS84 WPT’ by a system message. ‘NON WGS84 WPT’ waypoints are
derived from an unknown map reference datum that may be incompatible
with the map reference datum used by GPS (known as WGS84) and may be
positioned in error as displayed.
WARNING: Do not use a QFE altimeter setting with this system. System
functions will not operate properly with a QFE altimeter setting. Use only
a QNH altimeter setting for height above mean sea level, or the standard
pressure setting, as applicable.
CAUTION: The PFD and MFD displays use 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 ANTIREFLECTIVE 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 antireflective coatings.
CAUTION: The system 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 panel and displays, are subject to change and may not reflect
the most current system and databases. Depictions of equipment may differ
slightly from the actual equipment.
190-00761-05 Rev. A
Cockpit Reference Guide for the Prodigy® Flight Deck 300
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
NOTE: This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is
subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful
interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired operation.
NOTE: 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.
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 web site at www.garmin.com/prop65.
NOTE: Interference from GPS repeaters operating inside nearby hangars can
cause an intermittent loss of attitude and heading displays while the aircraft
is on the ground. Moving the aircraft more than 100 yards away from the
source of the interference should alleviate the condition.
NOTE: Use of polarized eyewear may cause the flight displays to appear dim
or blank.
Cockpit Reference Guide for the Prodigy® Flight Deck 300
190-00761-05 Rev. A
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
NOTE: The FAA has asked Garmin to remind pilots who fly with Garmin
database-dependent avionics of the following:
• It is the pilot’s responsibility to remain familiar with all FAA regulatory
and advisory guidance and information related to the use of databases in
the National Airspace System.
• Garmin equipment will only recognize and use databases that are
obtained from Garmin or Jeppesen. Databases obtained from Garmin
or Jeppesen are assured compliance with all data quality requirements
(DQRs) by virtue of a Type 2 Letter of Authorization (LOA) from the FAA. A
copy of the Type 2 LOA is available for each database and can be viewed
at http://fly.garmin.com by selecting ‘Type 2 LOA Status.’
• Use of a current Garmin or Jeppesen database in your Garmin equipment
is required for compliance with established FAA regulatory guidance, but
does not constitute authorization to fly any and all terminal procedures
that may be presented by the system. It is the pilot’s responsibility to
operate in accordance with established AFM(S) and regulatory guidance or
limitations as applicable to the pilot, the aircraft, and installed equipment.
NOTE: The pilot/operator must review and be familiar with Garmin’s database
exclusion list as discussed in SAIB CE-14-04 to determine what data may be
incomplete. The database exclusion list can be viewed at www.flygarmin.
com by selecting ‘Database Exclusions List.’
NOTE: The pilot/operator must have access to Garmin and Jeppesen database
alerts and consider their impact on the intended aircraft operation. The
database alerts can be viewed at www.flygarmin.com by selecting ‘Aviation
Database Alerts.’
NOTE: If the pilot/operator wants or needs to adjust the database, contact
Garmin Product Support to coordinate the revised DQRs.
190-00761-05 Rev. A
Cockpit Reference Guide for the Prodigy® Flight Deck 300

CONTROLLER PILOT DATA LINK COMMUNICATIONS (OPTIONAL)
The CPDLC (Controller Pilot Data Link Communications) system provides data link
communication between the aircraft and an Air Traffic Control facility. Communication
is normally in the form of text message elements that resemble phraseology used in
voice communications with ATC.
Generally, messages are closed with an acknowledgement or acceptance. When a
message is acknowledged, the connection with the ATC facility is not terminated, but
kept active for future communication.
Communication hand-off to the next ATC facility is usually performed automatically,
but may also be accomplished manually by the pilot.
A flight plan must be filed prior to logging on to the CPDLC system. After entering
flight plan information in the required fields and successfully logging on to the system,
messages may be sent and received.
The following parameters are used to log on to the system:
• Facility
• Flight ID
• Destination Airport
• Filed Departure Airport
• File Departure Time (Optional)
Performing the system log-on:
From the MFD, select the CPDLC Softkey.

Altitudes associated with arrival and approach procedures are “auto-designated”.
This means the system will automatically use the altitudes loaded with the arrival
or approach for giving vertical flight path guidance outside the FAF. Note that these
altitudes will be displayed as small light blue text.
Altitudes that are designated for use in vertical navigation may also be made “nondesignated” by placing the cursor over the desired altitude and pressing the CLR Key.
The altitude is now displayed only as a reference. It will not be used to give vertical
flight path guidance. Other displayed altitudes may change due to re-calculations
or rendered invalid as a result of manually changing an altitude to a non-designated
altitude.
NOTE: Making course changes greater than 90° during a descent with vertical
guidance may cause excessive and rapid movement of the vertical deviation
indicator, and SVT Pathways.
The system updates vertical path guidance continuously using ground speed and
the calculated distance to the Bottom of Descent (BOD). Due to turn anticipation
guidance (turn-smoothing), distance to the BOD can be affected by course changes
greater than approximately 5 degrees. Ground speed can be affected by factors such as
shifts in wind direction, aircraft power management, pitch angle, and course changes.
Abrupt and/or substantial changes to either the distance to the BOD, ground speed, or
both can cause similarly abrupt/substantial changes in vertical path guidance.
Because of turn-smoothing, changes to both distance to the BOD and ground speed
tend to be more extreme when the BOD is also a waypoint that marks a large course
change. These speed and distance changes will be accounted for in the computed
required vertical path and reflected in the vertical guidance indications.

When a weather product is selected for display on the Connext Weather Data Link
Page, a box containing a symbol for the product and its age (in minutes) are shown
in the upper right. If weather data has not been requested, ‘N/A’ is shown next to the
product symbol instead of age. The age of the weather product is based on the time
difference between when the data was assembled on the ground and the current GPS
time. Weather products are updated continuously or refreshed at specific intervals
(defined in the Refresh Rate column in the following table).
If for any reason, a weather product is not refreshed within the defined Expiration
Time intervals, the data is considered expired and is removed from the display. The
age of the expired product is replaced by dashes. If more than half of the expiration
time has elapsed, the color of the product age readout changes to yellow.
The refresh rate represents the interval at which the Connext servers make available
the most current known weather data. It does not necessarily represent the rate at
which new content is received from weather sources.

Precipitation Limitations
Radar images may have certain limitations:
• Radar base reflectivity does not provide sufficient information to determine cloud
layers or precipitation characteristics (wet hail vs. rain). For example, it is not
possible to distinguish between wet snow, wet hail, and rain.
• Radar base reflectivity is sampled at the minimum antenna elevation angle. An
individual radar site cannot depict high altitude storms at close ranges. It has
no information about storms directly over the site.
• When zoomed in to a range of 30 nm, each square block on the display represents
an area of four square kilometers.
The following may cause abnormalities in displayed radar images:
• Ground clutter
• Strobes and spurious radar data
• Sun strobes (when the radar antenna points directly at the sun)
• Interference from buildings or mountains, which may cause shadows

ChartView resembles the paper version of Jeppesen terminal procedures charts.

SafeTaxi® is an enhanced feature that gives greater map detail as the map range
is adjusted in on the airport. The airport display on the map reveals runways with
numbers, taxiways identifiers, and airport landmarks including ramps, buildings,
control towers, and other prominent features. Resolution is greater at lower map
ranges. The aircraft symbol provides situational awareness while taxiing.
Selecting the DCLTR Softkey (declutter) once removes the taxiway markings and
airport identification labels. Selecting the DCLTR Softkey twice removes VOR station
ID, the VOR symbol, and intersection names if within the airport plan view. Selecting
the DCLTR Softkey a third time removes the airport runway layout, unless the airport
in view is part of an active route structure. Selecting the DCLTR Softkey again cycles
back to the original map detail.
The SafeTaxi database contains detailed airport diagrams for selected airports.
These diagrams provide the pilot with situational awareness by displaying the aircraft
position in relation to taxiways, ramps, runways, terminals, and services. This
information should not be used by the pilot as the basis for maneuvering the aircraft
on the ground. This database is updated on a 56-day cycle.

POSITION REPORTING (OPTIONAL)
NOTE: An account must be established with Garmin Connext™ to make full
use of the Position Reporting feature.
The position reports are received by Garmin Connext and forwarded to select flight
tracking provider(s), such as FlightAware.com.
While active, the position reports are transmitted over the Iridium Short Burst
Datalink periodically at a pilot specified interval or by selecting the SEND RPT Softkey.
The minimum automatic transmission period between reports is two minutes with
more frequent transmissions possible via manually sending reports with the SEND
RPT Softkey. During voice communications and data transfers the Iridium datalink
is occupied and position reports will not be sent. During this period the reports will
buffer and be sent as a package as soon as the link is available.
The following are position reports contents:
• Tail Number
• Time
• Latitude/Longitude
• Ground Speed
• Ground Track
• True Heading
• Barometric Altitude
• True Airspeed
• Outside Air Temperature
• Destination Airport
• Estimated Time Enroute to Destination (ETE)
• Airborne Status
The Airborne Status field is the indication that the aircraft is on the ground or
in the air at the time the position report was generated. The avionics generate
a position report when the Airborne Status field changes state.
• Passenger Onboard
Passenger Onboard indicates passengers are on the aircraft at the time the position
report was generated. A position report is generated when the Passenger Onboard
field changes state.

When a COM tuning failure is detected by the system, the emergency frequency
(121.500 MHz) is automatically loaded into the active frequency field of the COM
radio for which the tuning failure was detected. In the event of a failure of both PFDs,
the emergency frequency (121.500 MHz) automatically becomes the active frequency
on both COM radios.

Hazard
Avoidance
Manual activation of reversionary display mode is accomplished by pressing the
DISPLAY BACKUP Button on the appropriate audio panel.
Procedures
If the system detects a failure in PFD1 or MFD, reversionary mode is entered
automatically. Reversionary mode must be entered manually in the case of
PFD2 failure. In reversionary mode, critical flight instrumentation is combined with
engine instrumentation on the remaining display.

AUDIO PANEL FAIL-SAFE OPERATION
If there is a failure of both Audio Panels, a fail-safe circuit connects the pilot’s
headset and microphone directly to the COM1 transceiver and the copilot’s headset
directly to the COM2 transceiver. Audio is not available on the speakers. If there is a
failure of one Audio Panel, that side only has access to their respective on-side fail-safe
COM.
NOTE: Audio is not available on the speakers in case of an Audio Panel and
its cross-side GIA unit simultaneous failure.
If there is a failure of one Audio Panel, the remaining Audio Panel does not have
access to the other side’s COM or NAV. For example, if the pilot side Audio Panel
fails, the copilot side Audio Panel has access to all the radios except for COM1 and
NAV1. In this case, the copilot can receive the audio from NAV2 and operate COM2
for transmission/reception.
In addition, if there is a failure of one Audio Panel, the following functions are no
longer available on the failed side; NAV/ILS audio, speaker, cockpit/cockpit-passengers
intercom, aural warning alerts on headset, entertainment inputs, and digital recording
radio. Also, if a stereo headset is in use, and an Audio Panel fails, only the left channel
will be heard in the headphones.

NOTE: Dead Reckoning Mode only functions in Enroute (ENR) or Oceanic
(OCN) phase of flight. In all other phases, an invalid GPS solution produces
a “NO GPS POSITION” annunciation on the map and the system stops
navigating in GPS Mode.
Abnormal
Operation
While in Enroute or Oceanic phase of flight, if the system detects an invalid GPS
solution or is unable to calculate a GPS position, the system automatically reverts to
Dead Reckoning (DR) Mode. In DR Mode, the system uses its last-known position
combined with continuously updated airspeed and heading data (when available) to
calculate and display the aircraft’s current estimated position.

Features

DR Mode is indicated by the appearance of the letters ‘DR’ superimposed in yellow
over the ‘own aircraft’ symbol as shown in the following figure. In addition, ‘DR’ is
prominently displayed, also in yellow, on the HSI slightly above and to the right of the
aircraft symbol on the CDI as shown in the following figure. Also, the CDI deviation
bar is removed from the display. Lastly, but at the same time, a ‘GPS NAV LOST’ alert
message appears on the PFD.
Normal navigation using GPS/SBAS source data resumes automatically once a valid
GPS solution is restored.
It is important to note that estimated navigation data supplied by the system in
DR Mode may become increasingly unreliable and must not be used as a sole means
of navigation. If, while in DR Mode, airspeed and/or heading data is also lost or
not available, the DR function may not be capable of estimating your position and,
consequently, the system may display a path that is different than the actual movement
of the aircraft. Estimated position information displayed by the system through
DR while there is no heading and/or airspeed data available should not be used for
navigation.
DR Mode is inherently less accurate than the standard GPS/SBAS Mode due to the
lack of satellite measurements needed to determine a position. Changes in wind speed
and/or wind direction compounds the relative inaccuracy of DR Mode. Because of this
degraded accuracy, the crew must maintain position awareness using other navigation
equipment until GPS-derived position data is restored.

Also, while the system is in DR Mode, the autopilot will not couple to GPS, and
TAWS is disabled. Additionally, the accuracy of all nearest information (airports,
airspaces, and waypoints) is questionable. Finally, airspace alerts continue to function,
but with degraded accuracy.
Firmly grasp the control wheel.
2)
Press and hold the AP DISC Switch. The autopilot will disconnect and
power is removed from the trim motor. Power is also removed from all
primary servo motors and engaged solenoids. Note the visual and aural
alerting indicating autopilot disconnect.
3)
Retrim the aircraft as needed. Substantial trim adjustment may be needed.

OVERPOWERING AUTOPILOT SERVOS
In the context of this discussion, “overpowering” refers to any pressure or force
applied to the pitch controls when the autopilot is engaged. A small amount of
pressure or force on the pitch controls can cause the autopilot automatic trim to run
to an out-of-trim condition. Therefore, any application of pressure or force to the
controls should be avoided when the autopilot is engaged.
Overpowering the autopilot during flight will cause the autopilot’s automatic trim
to run, resulting in an out-of-trim condition or cause the trim to hit the stop if the
action is prolonged. In this case, larger than anticipated control forces are required
after the autopilot is disengaged.
The following steps should be added to the preflight check:
1) Check for proper autopilot operation and ensure the autopilot can be
overpowered.
2) Note the forces required to overpower the autopilot servo clutches.

The flight plan on the SD card contains one or more waypoints
that the system cannot find in the navigation database. The
flight plan has been imported, but must be edited within the
system before it can be activated for use.
‘User waypoint database full. Not all
loaded.’
The flight plan file on the SD card contains user waypoints.
The quantity of stored user waypoints has exceeded system
capacity, therefore not all the user waypoints on the SD card
have been imported. Any flight plan user waypoints that were
not imported are locked in the flight plan. The flight plan must
be edited within the system before it can be activated for use.
Procedures
‘One or more user waypoints renamed.’ One or more imported user waypoints were renamed when
imported due to naming conflicts with waypoints already
existing in the system.
‘Flight plan export failed.’
The stored flight plan was not successfully exported to the SD

A data path connected to the GDU, GSD 41, or
the GIA 63/W has failed.
This occurs when a newly installed navigation
database eliminates an obsolete approach
or arrival used by a stored flight plan. The
obsolete procedure is removed from the flight
plan. Update flight plan with current arrival or
approach.
Upon power-up, the system detects that a stored
flight plan waypoint is locked. This occurs when
an navigation database update eliminates an
obsolete waypoint. The flight plan cannot find
the specified waypoint and flags this message.
This can also occur with user waypoints in a
flight plan that is deleted.
Remove the waypoint from the flight plan if it no
longer exists in any database,
Or
update the waypoint name/identifier to reflect
the new information.

In some cases it may be necessary to obtain an unlock code from Garmin in order
to make the database product functional. It may also be necessary to have the system
configured by a Garmin authorized service facility in order to use some database
features.
If an error occurs during synchronization, an error message will be displayed,
followed by the affected display in the Sync Status section of the Database Window. If
synchronization completes on one display, but an error occurs on another, the error
message will be displayed with the affected displays listed after it. When an error
message is displayed, the problem must be corrected before synchronization can be
completed. A power cycle is required to restart synchronization when ‘Card Full’ or
‘Err’ is shown.

A copy of the current magnetic field variation database (MV DB) is included with
the navigation database. At startup, the system compares this version of the MV
DB with that presently being used by each AHRS (GRS1 and GRS2). If the system
determines the MV DB needs to be updated, a prompt is displayed on the Navigation
Map Page, as shown in the following figure. Note, in the following example, GRS1
is the first AHRS to indicate an update is available. In actuality, this is dependent on
which AHRS is the first to report status to the system. GRS2 may be displayed before
GRS1. The order is not important, only that both AHRS be updated.
