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.
190-02238-00 Rev. A
Garmin G1000 NXi Cockpit Reference Guide for the Diamond DA42NG
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: 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: Traffic information shown on system displays is provided as an
aid in visually acquiring traffic. Traffic avoidance maneuvers are based upon
TCAS II Resolution Advisories, ATC guidance, or positive visual acquisition of
conflicting traffic.
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).

190-02238-00 Rev. A
Warnings, Cautions & Notes
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: 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: 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 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.
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.
190-02238-00 Rev. A
Garmin G1000 NXi Cockpit Reference Guide for the Diamond DA42NG
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.

190-02238-00 Rev. A
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.’
190-02238-00 Rev. A
Garmin G1000 NXi Cockpit Reference Guide for the Diamond DA42NG
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 to coordinate the revised DQRs.
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: When operating the system with the magnetic sensor uncoupled
from the AHRS, the displayed heading and heading information used by
some system components (e.g. traffic system, AFCS, and weather radar) will
be different from the heading calculated by the AHRS. The difference is an
amount equal to the difference between the current Magnetic Field Variation
Database (MV DB) value, and the MV DB value when the magnetic sensor
was uncoupled. Due to the convergence of isogonic lines, this condition is
most noticeable at or near the north and south magnetic poles.
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 G1000 NXi system power through at least one cycle in a
period of four days of continuous operation to avoid an autonomous system
reboot.

Warnings, Cautions & Notes
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.
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.

DESIGNATING A WAYPOINT ALTITUDE TO BE USED FOR VERTICAL
GUIDANCE
AFCS
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.

NOTE: With the availability of SafeTaxi®, ChartView, or FliteCharts®, it may
be necessary to carry another source of charts on-board the aircraft.
SafeTaxi®
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

Enabling/disabling ESP
EISEIS
ESP™ engages when the aircraft exceeds one or more conditions (pitch, roll, and
airspeed) 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 range, 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. Except in
the case of high airspeed, when 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 related to a high airspeed condition.
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 pressing and holding the Autopilot Disconnect
(AP DISC) switch or the Control Wheel Steering (CWS) button. Upon releasing AP
DISC or CWS, ESP™ force will again be applied, provided aircraft roll attitude is within
engagement limits. ESP™ can also be overridden by overpowering the servo’s mechanical
torque limit.
ESP™ can be enabled or disabled on the ‘Aux - System Setup 2’ Page on the MFD.

ESP™ is automatically enabled on system power up.
Roll Engagement
Roll Limit Indicators are displayed on the roll scale at 45° right and left, indicating
where ESP™ will engage. As roll attitude exceeds 45°, ESP™ will engage and the onside Roll Limit Indicator will move to 30°. The Roll Limit Indicator is now showing
where ESP™ will disengage as roll attitude decreases.
Once engaged, ESP™ force will be applied between 30° and 75°. The force increases
as roll attitude increases and decreases as roll attitude decreases. The applied force is
intended to encourage pilot input that returns the airplane to a more normal roll
attitude. As roll attitude decreases, ESP™ will disengage at 30°.
ESP™ is automatically disengaged if the aircraft reaches the autopilot roll engagement
attitude limit of 75°.
Pitch Engagement
ESP™ engages at 17° nose-up and 15° nose-down. Once ESP™ is engaged, it will
apply increasing opposing force between 17° and 20° nose-up and between 15° and
18° nose-down. Maximum opposing force is applied between 20° and 50° nose-up
and between 18° and 50° nose-down. ESP™ disengages when 50° is exceeded in a
nose-up or nose-down attitude.
With ESP™ engaged, and the aircraft in a nose-up condition, opposing force
steadily decreases from 20° nose-up to 15° nose-up as aircraft pitch moves toward
zero degrees. ESP™ disengages at 15° nose-up. With ESP™ engaged, and the aircraft
in a nose-down condition, opposing force steadily decreases from 18° nose-down to
13° nose-down as aircraft pitch moves toward zero degrees. ESP™ disengages at 13°
nose-down.
The opposing force increases or decreases depending on the pitch angle and the
direction of pitch travel. This force is intended to encourage movement in the pitch
axis in the direction of the normal pitch attitude range for the aircraft.
There are no indications marking the pitch ESP™ engage and disengage limits in
these nose-up/nose-down conditions.
High Airspeed Protection
Exceeding Vmo/Mmo will result in ESP™ applying force to raise the nose of the aircraft. When the high airspeed condition is remedied, ESP™ force is no longer applied.

DR Mode is indicated on the system 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. The CDI deviation bar is displayed in yellow, but will be removed from the
display after 20 minutes. 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.
Nav/Com/
XPDR/Audio
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.
EIS
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.

As a result of operating in DR Mode, all GPS-derived data is computed based upon

Also, while the system is in DR Mode, the autopilot will couple to GPS for up to 20

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.

not immediately available for use, but stored to be activated at a later time.
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.
Database updates can be obtained by following the instructions detailed in the ‘Aviation Databases’ section of the Garmin website (fly.garmin.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:
•
Windows-compatible PC computer
•
SD Card Reader: SanDisk SDDR-93, SanDisk SDDR-99, Verbatim #96504, or
equivalent
•
Updated database obtained from the Garmin website
•
Supplemental SD Cards
In some cases it may be necessary to obtain an unlock code from Garmin in order
