Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: Do not use terrain avoidance displays as the sole source of
information for maintaining separation from terrain and obstacles. Garmin
obtains terrain and obstacle data from third party sources and cannot
independently verify the accuracy of the information.
WARNING: Always refer to current aeronautical charts and NOTAMs for
verification of displayed aeronautical information. Displayed aeronautical
data may not incorporate the latest NOTAM information.
WARNING: Do not use geometric altitude for compliance with air traffic
control altitude requirements. The primary barometric altimeter must be used
for compliance with all air traffic control altitude regulations, requirements,
instructions, and clearances.
WARNING: Do not use basemap information (land and water data) as the
sole means of navigation. Basemap data is intended only to supplement other
approved navigation data sources and should be considered only an aid to
enhance situational awareness.
WARNING: Do not use TAWS information for primary terrain or obstacle
avoidance. TAWS is intended only to enhance situational awareness.
WARNING: Use appropriate primary systems for navigation, and for terrain,
obstacle, and traffic avoidance. Garmin SVT is intended as an aid to situational
awareness only and may not provide either the accuracy or reliability upon
which to solely base decisions and/or plan maneuvers to avoid terrain,
obstacles, or traffic.
WARNING: Intruder aircraft at or below 500 ft. AGL may not appear on the
Garmin SVT display or may appear as a partial symbol.
WARNING: Do not use the Garmin SVT runway depiction as the sole means
for determining the proximity of the aircraft to the runway or for maintaining
the proper approach path angle during landing.
190-02139-00 Rev. A
Garmin G1000 NXi Cockpit Reference Guide for the Cessna Caravan
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: Do not rely solely upon the display of traffic information to
accurately depict all of the traffic within range of the aircraft. Due to lack
of equipment, poor signal reception, and/or inaccurate information from
aircraft or ground stations, traffic may be present that is not represented on
the display.
WARNING: Do not rely solely upon the display of traffic information for
collision avoidance maneuvering. The traffic display does not provide collision
avoidance resolution advisories and does not under any circumstances or
conditions relieve the pilot’s responsibility to see and avoid other aircraft.
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 older than the indicated weather product age.
WARNING: Do not rely on information from a lightning detection system
display as the sole basis for hazardous weather avoidance. Range limitations
and interference may cause the system to display inaccurate or incomplete
information. Refer to documentation from the lightning detection system
manufacturer for detailed information about the system.
WARNING: Do not operate the weather radar in a transmitting mode when
personnel or objects are within the MPEL boundary.
WARNING: Always position the weather radar gain setting to Calibrated
for viewing the actual intensity of precipitation. Changing the gain in
weather mode causes precipitation intensity to be displayed as a color not
representative of the true intensity.
Garmin G1000 NXi Cockpit Reference Guide for the Cessna Caravan
190-02139-00 Rev. A
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: The displayed minimum safe altitude (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: Always obtain qualified instruction prior to operational use of
this equipment.
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.
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: Because of variation in the earth’s magnetic field, do not rely on
the accuracy of attitude and heading indications in the following geographic
areas: 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: When using the autopilot to fly an approach with vertical guidance, the autopilot will not level the aircraft at the MDA/DH even if the MDA/
DH is set in the altitude preselect.
WARNING: Steep approaches are not supported by Landing Data calculations.
190-02139-00 Rev. A
Garmin G1000 NXi Cockpit Reference Guide for the Cessna Caravan
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: Do not use SurfaceWatch™ information as the primary method
of flight guidance during airborne or ground operations. SurfaceWatch does
not have NOTAM or ATIS information regarding the current active runway,
condition, or information about the position of hold lines.
CAUTION: Do not clean display surfaces with abrasive cloths or cleaners
containing ammonia. They will harm the anti-reflective coating.
CAUTION: Repairs should only be made by an authorized Garmin service
center. Unauthorized repairs or modifications could void both the warranty
and affect the airworthiness of the aircraft.
NOTE: Do not rely solely upon data link services to provide Temporary Flight
Restriction (TFR) information. Always confirm TFR information through official
sources such as Flight Service Stations or Air Traffic Control.
NOTE: All visual depictions contained within this document, including screen
images of the system panel and displays, are subject to change and may
not reflect the most current system and aviation databases. Depictions of
equipment may differ slightly from the actual equipment.
NOTE: 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.
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.
Garmin G1000 NXi Cockpit Reference Guide for the Cessna Caravan
190-02139-00 Rev. A
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
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.
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: Operating the system in the vicinity of metal buildings, metal structures, or electromagnetic fields can cause sensor differences that may result
in nuisance miscompare annunciations during start up, shut down, or while
taxiing. If one or more of the sensed values are unavailable, the annunciation
indicates no comparison is possible.
NOTE: The system responds to a terminal procedure based on data coded
within that procedure in the Navigation Database. Differences in system
operation may be observed among similar types of procedures due to
differences in the Navigation Database coding specific to each procedure.
190-02139-00 Rev. A
Garmin G1000 NXi Cockpit Reference Guide for the Cessna Caravan
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
NOTE: The FAA has asked Garmin to remind pilots who fly with Garmin databasedependent 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 that have a Type
2 Letter of Authorization (LOA) from the FAA are assured compliance with all data
quality requirements (DQRs). A copy of the Type 2 LOA is available for each applicable
database and can be viewed at http://fly.garmin.com by selecting ‘Aviation Database
Declarations.’
• 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.
NOTE: Garmin requests the flight crew report any observed discrepancies
related to database information. These discrepancies could come in the form
of an incorrect procedure; incorrectly identified terrain, obstacles and fixes; or
any other displayed item used for navigation or communication in the air or
on the ground. Go to FlyGarmin.com and select ‘Aviation Data Error Report’.
Garmin G1000 NXi Cockpit Reference Guide for the Cessna Caravan
190-02139-00 Rev. A
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
NOTE: The system supports approval of AC 120-76C Hardware Class 3,
Software Type B Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) electronic aeronautical chart
applications. Possible additional requirements may make a secondary source
(traditional paper or additional electronic display) necessary onboard the
aircraft. If the secondary source is a Portable Electronic Device (PED), its use
must be consistent with guidance in AC 120-76C.
NOTE: When using Stormscope, there are several atmospheric phenomena in
addition to nearby thunderstorms that can cause isolated discharge points in
the strike display mode. However, clusters of two or more discharge points
in the strike display mode do indicate thunderstorm activity if these points
reappear after the screen has been cleared.
NOTE: Operate G1000NXi system power through at least one cycle in a period
of four days of continuous operation to avoid an autonomous system reboot.
NOTE: The purpose of this Cockpit Reference Guide is to provide the pilot a
resource with which to find operating instructions on the major features of
the system more easily. It is not intended to be a comprehensive operating
guide. Complete operating procedures for the system are found in the Pilot’s
Guide for this aircraft.

GUIDANCE
Hazard

Altitudes associated with arrival and approach procedures are “auto-designated”.
This means the system automatically uses the altitudes loaded with the arrival or
approach for giving vertical speed and deviation guidance. Note that these altitudes
are displayed as cyan text up to, but not including, the FAF. The FAF is always a
“reference only” altitude and cannot be designated, unless the selected approach does
not provide vertical guidance. In this case, the FAF altitude can be designated.
Altitudes that have been designated for use in vertical guidance can be “undesignated” using the CLR Key. The altitude is now displayed only as a reference. It
is not used to give vertical guidance. Other displayed altitudes may change due to
re-calculations or be rendered invalid as a result of manually changing an altitude to a
non-designated altitude.

The optional GTX 345R transponder receives Flight Information Services - Broadcast
(FIS-B) weather data from a network of UAT ground-based transceivers (GBTs).
FIS-B weather data reception requires the aircraft being within range and line-ofsight of an operating GBT broadcasting FIS-B weather data. Reception may be affected
by factors including altitude or terrain.
Reception of FIS-B weather data occurs automatically without any pilot action. FIS-B
broadcasts provide weather data in a repeating cycle which may take approximately
ten minutes to transmit all available weather data. Therefore, not all available weather
data may be available immediately upon initial FIS-B signal acquisition.

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. When the MFD display is within the SafeTaxi ranges, the airplane symbol on
the airport provides enhanced position awareness.
The Detail Softkey (declutter) label advances to Detail All, Detail 3, Detail 2 and
Detail 1 each time the softkey is selected for easy recognition of decluttering level.
Selecting the Detail All Softkey removes the taxiway markings and airport feature

removes the airport runway layout, unless the airport in view is part of an active route
structure. Selecting the Detail 1 Softkey 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

190-02139-00 Rev. A
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.
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 accurately tracking estimated 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.
Additional
Features
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.
AFCS
NOTE: The PFD map is removed from the PFD any time aircraft pitch is greater
than +30° or less than –20°, or when a 65° bank angle is reached.
Hazard
Avoidance
If heading is lost, strikes and/or cells must be cleared manually after the execution of
each turn. This is to ensure that the strike and/or cell positions are depicted accurately
in relation to the nose of the aircraft.
Flight
Management
STORMSCOPE OPERATION WITH LOSS OF HEADING INPUT
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 compound the relative inaccuracy of DR Mode. Because
of this degraded accuracy, other navigation equipment must be relied upon for position awareness until GPS-derived position data is restored.
DR Mode is indicated on the system by the appearance of the letters ‘DR’ superimposed in amber over the ‘own aircraft’ symbol. In addition, ‘DR’ is prominently
displayed in amber on the HSI slightly below and to the left of the aircraft symbol on
the CDI. The CDI deviation bar remains, but is removed from the display after 20
minutes in DR Mode. The autopilot will remain coupled in DR mode as long as the
deviation info is available (20 min.) 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.
As a result of operating in DR Mode, all GPS-derived data is computed based upon
an estimated position and is displayed as amber text on the display to denote degraded
navigation source information. If the VSD Inset is selected on the MFD, ‘VSD Not
Available’ will be displayed.

the past will be highlighted with amber text. When an expired active database has a
standby database that is ready to become effective, a cyan double-sided arrow will be
displayed between the database cycles. When this arrow is visible, it indicates that
the standby and active databases in that row will be switched on the next power cycle,
activating the current standby database. Databases can also be manually selected (or
deselected) by highlighting a list item and pressing the ENT key, provided a valid, verified standby database is present.
