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 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 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.
190-02139-01 Rev. B
Garmin G1000 NXi Cockpit Reference Guide for the Cessna Caravan
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
WARNING: Do not rely on the displayed minimum safe altitude (MSAs) as
the sole source of obstacle and terrain avoidance information. Always refer
to current aeronautical charts for appropriate minimum clearance altitudes.
WARNING: Do not operate this equipment without first obtaining qualified
instruction.
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 rely on the autopilot to level the aircraft at the MDA/DH
when flying 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: 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 rely on the accuracy of attitude and heading indications in
the following geographic areas (due to variations in the earth’s magnetic field):
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 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.

190-02139-01 Rev. B
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
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: 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.
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.
WARNING: Do not rely on information from the reactive wind shear detection system display as the sole basis for detecting wind shear conditions. The
system cannot predict the conditions in which wind shear is likely to develop.
WARNING: Do not use TAWS information for primary terrain or obstacle
avoidance. TAWS is intended only to enhance situational awareness.
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: Do not allow repairs to be made by anyone other than an authorized Garmin service center. Unauthorized repairs or modifications could void
both the warranty and affect the airworthiness of the aircraft.
190-02139-01 Rev. B
Garmin G1000 NXi Cockpit Reference Guide for the Cessna Caravan
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
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.
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.

190-02139-01 Rev. B
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
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.
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 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.’
190-02139-01 Rev. B
Garmin G1000 NXi Cockpit Reference Guide for the Cessna Caravan
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
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’.
NOTE: Electronic aeronautical charts displayed on this system have been
shown to meet the guidance in AC 120 76D as a Type B Electronic Flight Bag
(EFB) for FlightCharts and ChartView. The accuracy of the charts is subject to
the chart data provider. Own-ship position on airport surface charts cannot be
guaranteed to meet the accuracy specified in AC 120-76D. Possible additional
requirements may make a secondary source of aeronautical charts, such as
traditional paper charts or an additional electronic display, necessary on the
aircraft and available to the pilot. If the secondary source of aeronautical
charts is a Portable Electronic Device (PED), its use must be consistent with
the guidance in AC 120-76D.
NOTE: The navigation databases used in Garmin navigation systems contain
Special Procedures. Prior to flying these procedures, pilots must have specific
FAA authorization, training, and possession of the corresponding current,
and legitimately-sourced chart (approach plate, etc.). Inclusion of the Special
Procedure in the navigation database DOES NOT imply specific FAA authorization to fly the procedure.
NOTE: Terrain and obstacle alerting is not available north of 89º North latitude
and south of 89º South latitude. This is due to limitations present within the
Terrain database and the system’s ability to process the data representing
the affected areas.
Garmin G1000 NXi Cockpit Reference Guide for the Cessna Caravan
190-02139-01 Rev. B
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
NOTE: The nose of the ‘own ship’ symbol represents the location of the aircraft. The center of any traffic symbol represents the location of that traffic.
The traffic and own ship symbols are an abstract representation and do not
reflect the physical extent of the aircraft/traffic, and should not replace other
methods for identifying traffic.
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.

Do not use 3D Audio with monaural headets. 3D Audio is useful when multiple
COM audio sources are present. By using different responses in each ear, 3D audio
processing creates the perception that each COM audio source is coming from a unique
location on the horizontal plane. Because this feature uses different signals for left and
right channels, it requires wiring for stereo intercom and stereo headsets.
With a single COM selected and 3D Audio enabled, the listener hears the audio
source at the 12 o’clock position. If both COMs are selected, the listener hears COM1
at 11 o’clock and COM2 at the 1 o’clock position. All other audio inputs are processed
so that the listener hears the audio source at the 12 o’clock position.
In order to change your headset microphone position (ie: left side to right side)
while using 3D Audio, use the L-R Swap function so that the listener hears the audio
source from the correct position.
3D Audio and L-R Swap can be selected or deselected on the ‘Aux - System Setup

These altitudes are provided as a
reference, and are not designated for
vertical guidance.
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

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.
Pressing the Detail Softkey (declutter) once removes the taxiway markings and
airport identification labels. Pressing the Detail Softkey twice removes VOR station
ID, the VOR symbol, and intersection names if within the airport plan view. Pressing
the Detail Softkey a third time removes the airport runway layout, unless the airport
in view is part of an active route structure. Pressing the Detail 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.

ELECTRONIC STABILITY & PROTECTION (ESP™)
Electronic Stability and Protection (ESP™) is an optional feature that is intended to
discourage the exceedance of attitude and established airspeed parameters. This feature
will only function when the aircraft is above 200 feet AGL and the autopilot is not
engaged.
ESP engages when the aircraft exceeds one or more conditions (pitch, roll, and/or
Vmo) beyond the normal flight parameters. Enhanced stability for each condition is
provided by applying a force to the appropriate control surface to return the aircraft
to the normal flight envelope. This is perceived by the pilot as resistance to control
movement in the undesired direction when the aircraft approaches a steep attitude or
high airspeed.

As the aircraft deviates further from the normal attitude and/or airspeed, the force
increases (up to an established maximum) to encourage control movement in the
direction necessary to return to the normal attitude and/or airspeed range. For all
conditions except for high airspeed, once maximum force is reached, force remains
constant up to the maximum engagement limit. Above the maximum engagement
limit, forces are no longer applied. There is no maximum engagement associated with
high airspeed.
When ESP has been engaged for more than ten seconds (cumulative; not necessarily
consecutive seconds) of a 20-second interval, the autopilot is automatically engaged
with the flight director in Level Mode, bringing the aircraft into level flight. An aural
“Engaging Autopilot” alert is played and the flight director mode annunciation will
indicate ‘LVL’ for vertical and lateral modes.
The pilot can interrupt ESP by pushing and holding either the Control Wheel
Steering (CWS) or Autopilot Disconnect (AP DISC) switch. Upon releasing the CWS
or AP DISC switch, ESP force will again be applied, provided aircraft attitude and/or
airspeed are within their respective engagement limits. ESP can also be overridden by
overpowering the servo’s mechanical torque limit.

HYPOXIA RECOGNITION WITH EMERGENCY DESCENT MODE
The optional Hypoxia Recognition detects pilot incapacitation due to the affects
of hypoxia or other physical conditions. This is accomplished by monitoring pilot
interaction with the Garmin Integrated Flight Deck. If the system determines the
pilot is not responding, Emergency Descent Mode is activated placing the aircraft in
a descent to a lower altitude to provide the pilot and passengers an opportunity to
recover from the effects of hypoxia.
The system is operative when the aircraft altitude is above 14,900 feet (pressure
altitude) and the Garmin AFCS autopilot is engaged. Pilot interaction with the system
is monitored by detecting key presses and turns of the knobs (Audio Panel and pushto-talk switch excluded). If a period of inactivity (see following figure) is detected,
Hypoxia Recognition initiates an automatic descent.
Upon activation, there are three sequential phases employed by the system;
determining pilot alertness, descent to 14,000 feet MSL, and descent to 12,500 feet
MSL.
Emergency Descent Mode
NOTE: Emergency Descent Mode does not account for terrain elevation.
As the system prepares for descent, the Selected Altitude is set to 14,000 and the
AFCS enters Flight Level Change (FLC) mode with the airspeed reference set to the
maximum allowable airspeed setting for the specific aircraft model. Refer to the Flight
Director Vertical Modes in the AFCS section. AFCS lateral mode settings are not
affected.
As the descent begins, an ‘EMER DESCENT’ warning is displayed in the
Annunciation Window. ‘EDM’ is shown as a warning annunciation indicating the
system has entered Emergency Descent Mode. ‘EDM’ (Emergency Descent Mode) is
the AFCS mode activated when Hypoxia Recognition initiates an automatic descent.
A continuous repeating chime will be heard as long as Emergency Descent Mode is
active. After the descent begins, Emergency Descent Mode can only be canceled by
disconnecting the autopilot.
As the aircraft reaches 14,000 feet the system sets the AFCS to Altitude Hold mode.
The AFCS will also remain in Emergency Descent Mode as indicated by the ‘EDM’

If no pilot interaction is detected for four minutes, the system initiates the second
descent. As the system prepares for this descent, the Selected Altitude is set to 12,500

allowable airspeed for the specific aircraft model.
As the descent begins, an ‘EMER DESCENT’ warning is displayed in the

chime is also heard.
As the aircraft reaches 12,500 feet the system sets the AFCS to Altitude Hold

EIS
Reversionary mode is a mode of operation in which all important flight information
is presented identically on at least one of the remaining displays. Transition to reversionary mode should be straightforward for the pilot, flight parameters are presented
in the same format as in normal mode.
When a display fails, the system automatically switches to reversionary (backup)
mode as follows:

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 PFD and MFD have different terrain database versions or
types installed. Check the Aux-Databases Page to determine
versions or regions. Also, check the Aux-Databases Page for
a database synchronization function not completed. After
synchronization is complete, power must be turned off, then
on.
A data path connected to the GDU or the GIA 63W/64W
has failed.
Flight Information Service weather datalink failure or aircraft
outside of FAA GBT area coverage.
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.
The system has detected that a waypoint coordinate has
changed due to a new navigation database update. Verify
that stored flight plans contain correct waypoint locations.
The SD card was removed from the bottom card slot of the

Flight Plan Import/Export Results
Some flight plan waypoints were successfully
imported from the SD card, however others had
errors and were not imported. A partial stored
flight plan now exists in the system.
‘Too many points. Flight plan truncated.’
The flight plan on the SD card contains more
waypoints than the system can support. The flight
plan was imported with as many waypoints as
possible.
‘Some waypoints not loaded. Waypoints
locked.’
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.
‘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 successfully exported.’
The stored flight plan was successfully exported to
the SD card.
‘Flight plan export failed.’
The stored flight plan was not successfully

NOTE: When loading database updates, the ‘DB Mismatch’ system messages will be displayed until database synchronization is complete, followed
by turning system power off, then on. Synchronization can be monitored on
the ‘Aux-Database’ Page.
Databases may be loaded through Garmin Pilot and Bluetooth Transceiver. When
loading databases through Garmin Pilot and the Bluetooth Transceiver, the Bluetooth
Transceiver must be enabled on the system and the multimedia card inserted in the
bottom SD slot of the MFD.
The cycles and dates for both standby and active databases are displayed on the
“Aux – Databases” page on the MFD. Any active databases with expiration dates in
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.
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.
The navigation database contains the aeronautical data used by the system for the
flight management and flight planning functions. Included is detailed data for waypoints, procedures (arrivals, departures, approaches), and airways. The navigation database is updated every 28 days.
The basemap database contains data for the topography and land features, such as
rivers, lakes, and towns. It is updated only periodically, with no set schedule. There
is no expiration date.
The terrain database contains the terrain mapping data. These databases are
updated periodically and have no expiration date.

All databases are updated through a single SD card in the bottom slot of the MFD.
When the card is inserted, the databases on the card will be copied to standby and synchronized across all powered, configured units. After update, the card is removed and
the databases are stored on the system. When in standby, databases are not immediately
available for use, but stored to be activated at a later time.

The AOPA or AC-U-KWIK Airport Directory provides data on airports and
heliports throughout the U.S. or worldwide, respectively. The AOPA Directory
offers detailed information for over 5,300 U. S. airports, along with the names and
phone numbers of thousands of FBOs. These databases are updated every 56 days.
The AC-U-KWIK Directory offers detailed information for more than 8,000 airports
with runways longer than 3,000 feet worldwide.
The SafeTaxi database contains detailed airport diagrams for selected airports.
These diagrams aid in following ground control instructions by accurately displaying
the aircraft position on the map in relation to taxiways, ramps, runways, terminals,
and services. This database is updated on a 56-day cycle.
The FliteCharts database contains procedure charts. This database is updated on a
28-day cycle. If not updated within 180 days of the expiration date, FliteCharts will
no longer function.
The ChartView database is updated on a 14-day cycle. If the ChartView database is
not updated within 70 days of the expiration date, ChartView will no longer function.
The ChartView database must be purchased directly from Jeppesen, but can be updated
at jeppesen.com or flygarmin.com.
The IFR/VFR charts database contains VFR and IFR raster charts. The VFR Charts are
digital representations of the Sectional Aeronautical Charts and Terminal Area Charts.
The IFR Charts include both IFR High (designed for navigation at or above 18,000 ft)
and IFR Low (designed for navigation below 18,000 ft). IFR/VFR Charts are updated
every 28 days except for Canadian IFR/VFR Charts which are updated every 56 days.

Database updates can be obtained by following the instructions detailed in the
‘Aviation Databases’ section of the Garmin website (flygarmin.com). Once the updated
files have been downloaded from the website, a PC equipped with an appropriate SD
card reader is used to unpack and program the new databases onto an existing Supplemental Data Card. Equipment required to perform the update is as follows:
• SD Card Reader: SanDisk SDDR-93, SanDisk SDDR-99, Verbatim #96504,
or equivalent
• Updated database obtained from the Garmin website
• Supplemental SD Cards

Updating Databases Using the Bluetooth Tranceiver
In order to load databases through Garmin Pilot and the Bluetooth Transceiver (also
known as Flight Stream 510 or FS510), the Bluetooth Transceiver must be enabled
on the system and inserted in the bottom SD slot of the MFD. A mobile device with
Garmin Pilot must be paired with the Bluetooth Transceiver over Bluetooth (refer to
the Additional Features section). When there is at least one paired device available to
connect, the Bluetooth Transceiver will automatically connect to the system’s preferred
mobile device. The preferred device can be selected on the ‘Aux - Databases’ Page from
a menu list of paired devices.
Once a connection to the paired mobile device is made, Garmin Pilot makes
available databases that can be transferred to the Bluetooth Transceiver. If any of
these databases is more recent than the respective standby database on the system, (or
if there is no standby database on the system) those databases will be automatically
selected to load. The database updates may be initiated from the ‘Aux - Databases’
Page, or from other pages on the MFD.
NOTE: The system will only provide a WiFi connection if new databases have
been detected for download on Garmin Pilot via a valid Bluetooth connection.
If there are no database updates required the system will not provide a WiFi
signal.
